Not really a ''bug'' but it should be fixed

Postby Xey » 19 September 2016, 15:24

For the death messages like ''(player name) killed himself against the wall'' or ect... I think the messages should match the gender selected in players profile. Like in my case for example it should read ''Xey killed herself against the wall'' , its not gamebreaking but I think it would be a welcomed change.

there's no such thing as girls on the internet

this is such a minor issue, how does this bother you in any sort of way? its like not you're actually a male just because the kill feed said so

oh wait :^)

First of all haha very funny... -.-

But in all seriousness it is a minor issue... but.... it is still an issue.
Main reason is I know I can't be the only female player... so it bothers me because having ONLY male inclusive pronouns used is a tad unfair, yet again its not a game breaking issue but it wouldn't hurt to address it.

Insert Justin Bieber song

She means that female should be matched with the kill feed/suicide

Despite being a female player myself, I completely disagree with this. The last thing I want to see in this game is for it to turn into some Tumblr-esque gender inclusive "safe space" game. I identify as an attack helicopter; if we're going to "fix" this issue, PB2 better include my personal pronouns in too. #attackhelicopterlivesmatter js

The kill feed was never a problem in the past so why is it suddenly a problem now in the year where even failure to acknowledge or mentioning a certain gender is enough to trigger anybody?

If you're this triggered concerned over a simple pronoun, that says a lot. My suggestion is to stop taking such a minor issue seriously and maybe even personally. There's other problems in the game that deserve higher prioritizing.

You have to be ignorant if you clearly didn't see this sentence.

You know just because some things are obvious doesn't mean they're obvious enough for others. Idk what she wants fixed for the death messages I think it doesn't need fixing.

You know, missing something that's obvious makes you look ignorant and idiotic at the same time. You still don't know what she wants fixed despite it being literally marked in front of you. Prove my point further

She wants it so that the kill feeds have the gender pronouns of the death messages reflect that of the profile gender chosen.

For example, this would be the end result:

If it's a male: "x killed himself against the wall."
If female: "x killed herself against the wall."
If unspecified: "x killed itself against the wall."

That's the idea. Now do you finally understand it despite it being obvious to you multiple times?

This isn't a huge problem but would be nice to see the gender field onsite affect the kill feed in game. While I don't believe this will be a feature of PB2, I'll let Eric know about it for PB2.5 should it not be present in that game.

I think the issue has been discussed thoroughly enough.
