I’ll start out by saying I will buy/play this game no matter what.

I don’t know why people are so surprised by what’s going on with this game. Just take one look at the real world and you will see it’s a different world than it was 10 years ago.

People are more sensitive and get offended easily. We live in a world where everyone always wins and no one is ever wrong (even if history says otherwise)and gets a trophy.

I feel like companies don’t want to be labeled as “racist” or “bigots” so they cave to political correctness. In the end it’s all about politics where people like it or not.

    True. I don't really care about the multiplayer customization though, I just want another awesome historical (ish) campaign like BF1 had. Even though the trailer put a sour taste in my mouth, I'll hold out on my final thoughts once some real gameplay comes out.

    And anyone who doesn’t agree is a misogynistic racist bigot.

    The fact that Battlefield V's discussion has been dominated entirely by this woman topic, is proof enough that:

    a) a big problem still exists
    b) they made the right decision

    I don't give a ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ about representation, to be honest, but we aren't where we were a decade ago.

    or c) there is a problem more complex and deeper than you think and is not entirely related to that woman

    This whole controversy is disappointing to me. I thought the Battlefield community was better than this.

    What has changed in the past 10 years? I couldn’t figure out why Trump won the election, then after it was all clear.All the whining and crying. People are tired of political correctness being jammed down their throats.

    It’s not just about women and it’s not just video games. Just watch the news or read the newspaper it happens everywhere. Movies,TV shows,everything.

    There isn’t a **** thing wrong with people being turned off by a woman’s appearance in a trailer. Because it’s pretty clear what is heading our way. I’m trying to keep an open mind as we haven’t seen the multiplayer gameplay. However, when I’m trying to relive the stories my grandfathers passed down through a game series that has been home for over a decade and I get killed by a red headed Japanese female troop...or killed by a black female national socialist I’m going to be disappointed. It’s not bigotry...it’s not racism. I’m sure there are those players out there...but some of us play and enjoy the game for other reasons.

    Also an additional note: I could really get over the woman thing...and maybe even the silly out of era clothing and customs...but I’m very afraid of the upcoming mechanics and gameplay. I’m praying I’m wrong...but come June...im starting to fear the worst that battlefield will not be the least recongnizable to what we’ve seen developed over the years.

    TBH, it kinda does sound like there's a bigoted racist reason you're not comfortable in facing up to.

    This is a little disturbing on many levels, not sure where to begin addressing this.
    Also, just out of curiosity what side did your grandfathers fight on?
    My family fought against germans, and the most decorated and greatest combatant in my family is my great-aunt (A woman!).

    it actually means that enough people still understand how to represent WW2 that they found the reveal trailer insulting and downright idiotic.. but yeah , i guess it must be the whole society thing...jesus

    From Wiki

    There were 800,000 women who served in the Soviet Armed Forces during the war,[1] which is roughly 3 percent of total military personnel.[2] The number of women in the Soviet military in 1943 was 348,309, 473,040 in 1944, and then 463,503 in 1945.[3] Of the medical personnel in the Red Army, 40% of paramedics, 43% of surgeons, 46% of doctors, 57% of medical assistants, and 100% of nurses were women.[4] Nearly 200,000 were decorated and 89 of them eventually received the Soviet Union's highest award, the Hero of the Soviet Union, among which some served as pilots, snipers, machine gunners, tank crew members and partisans, as well as in auxiliary roles.[5][6],

    There’s nothing disturbing about it? Who hasn’t been inspired by their grandparents? My grandmother made guns for B52s and her husband was in the pacific. The other died crossing the Rhine river.
