EglaerinionBut that will probably mean that the germans can't play on other servers and vice versa?

Maybe that will get rid of the constant spamming in german on swedish servers, now all we need is a finnish version :p

Useless information time

The swastika was not used by the Nazis first. The Symble was used by Indians in Asia and the American Indians. It ment peace. Hitler was fond of art in his youth, even tryed to get into the Vienna colage of fine arts. Probly where he got the symble from.

hah^

Anyways about the people with historical version being able to connect to clean version servers...

This shouldn't be a problem right? Because you know how EA made it so that servers can be "pure" or "unpure?" You can use a merciless skin pack on the unpure servers. In order to run a MOD on a server like DC or FH you have to have the server set to unpure anyways...so that will let people who use different skins to connect to that server.

I hope it's like that atleast. Last thing we need is 2 versions of FH and the users can't connect to the other versions' servers and vice versa.

Is that real ? I heard he was a failed aprentice painter, before he was a corporal in WWI and everything that happened after that.

Maybe this represents the "Lebensraum" he was looking for eh ?

I don't know why germany thinks that the nazi flag is so offensive in something as simple in a game. If it's in historical context.

A nationalist socialist is much different than a German Soldier wearing the nazi symbol of WWII. Germany is not responsible for the Holocaust, only Hitler was, because it all came down to him, HE ORDERED THE EXTERMINATION. There were plenty of german soldiers who had jewish friends. Or what about the resistance that was led by some high figures in the german army, attempting to kill Hitler? Germany still denies that there was a german resistance and that is even more sad than the banning of the nazi symbol in games.

I mean, for crying out loud... they'll probably accept the Soviet Union flag in games and look what THAT stood for.

:( probably you don't understand the feelings some people in Europe have. Still a small part of the population in countries like belgium the netherlands and france have been occupied by Nazi-Germany. Most of those people have lost a lot of there family members in that war, so you would be an :moon: if you denied the past, and giving the neo-nazi's a second change. It would be disrespectfull too. Nazism should be banned.... forever.

Hmm a bit hard to explain :uhm:

B.F. PierceWe're working on a clean safe version for Germany don't worry ;)

Nah, I don´t want that "clean version"! I am German, but I am also 27 years old, and in my case I do not allow my government to censor something that needn´t be to.

In documentations about the "Third Reich" the Nazi Symbols are shown clearly and uncensored, so why not in a game?

I hope that both versions work on the same servers (no pure/unpure story).

If not I gladly play on outer-German Servers then.

And BTW. the NSDAP is still existing but in USA and not in Germany. And I don´t see a reason why this should help NeoNazi structures in Germany to gain influence, when a game features the spasticer.
