    Removing the masks makes it harder for them to be racist without blatantly being it. It will discourage some from doing it and it will make it easier to catch those who continue to be. Also BHVR aren't claiming that they've "ended racism", what they have done is make it harder for racists to be racist and removed something that was harming part of the community.

    Making a streamer only queue wouldn't work. It would make queue times way longer for streamers, ruining their gameplay. It's not a feasible solution.

    Thanks for not being afraid to reply to my question, I genuinely curious.

    I agree that dcing against things that make them uncomfortable is fine, but I also think that people shouldnt set themselves for failure when they know a game has themes that might upset them.

    Example, if I have a phobia of clowns, knowing this game has a clown, should I queue and just hope that I dont have to dc if I go against one?

    We can disagree on that, then. The moment smartface correlates even slightly to blackface then it would be justified to DC or be toxic against it. But as for now (and for ever, because it was removed) smartface has nothing to do with blackface.

    Also, there are many things that could be triggering for people in this game, there are backstories of abuse, assault, murder and other real life, real issues. But it's a horror game after all, I don't think removing everything 0.1% of the community finds wrongfully offensive to be the way to go, but that's just my take on the issue.

    I wasn't comparing the phobia of clowns to racism, I'm sorry that you read it that way.

    Is it irrelevant because you don't like how your answer could also be applied to other things that might upset people?

    THE WRAITH NEEDS TO BE REMOVED ASWELL. Hear me out.

    The wraith used to be an African (Philip Ojomo From Nigeria) He canTarget and harass a Felix Richter (Blond Hair Blue eyed boy from Germany).

    This is also racism and needs to be adressed.


    See what i did there?

    Its not slippery slope when it happens frequently. The mask was just easy pickings. If their goal is to harass a streamer, then nothing has changed for them.

    If you let genuine racists control what you think is right and wrong then they still control your life. They still have power over you. Look at how the pepe meme almost became a nazi thing despite the creator being firmly against it. If actual racist want something to be seen as offensive they will get you angry enough to demand it's destruction.

    In short I don't need to tell you have bunny legion is offensive. You'll be explaining it to me if they ever pick it.

    Streamer mode: hide other players names and characters before game

    Streamer queue: delays matchmaking while searching (behind the scenes, delay randomly what batch matchmaking you join) so people can't queue snipe easily. Not a Streamer only queue.


    I still think both of these would have more of an impact than removing cosmetics, but we will just have to wait and see what happens.

    It's only irrelevant when it doesn't fit the narrative that you're trying to present, get it. This is obviously not going anywhere.

    I'm not derailing anything by giving examples of how removing masks fixes nothing.

    Idc if they're gone, I'm saying the devs are lazy on how they address harassment.

    You know just because you don't agree with someone else, doesn't make them a racist right? Calling everyone who doesn't agree with you a racist is pathetic.
