If the final solution is so bad why is CCP using a racist codename for an expansion name?

Or...

It could simply be a reference to certain females and their role in Norse Mythology.


There's a million angry citizens looking down their tubes..at me.

Bingo.

OP, define how it is racist. O_o


edit: Searched the Racial Slur Database for Valkyrie and came up empty.

Must be a vague attempt to get someone to type the "H"-word because of 'his' love for Wagner.

Noone cares that a swastika means to be good, or balanced anymore. They only see it as a jew killing symbol. So why should this name be any different?

Expansion...?

Maybe CCP decided to add some depth to EVE by introducing mature content. Racism is a good place to start I suppose.
Next will be nudity, graphic violence and drug abuse. It's going to be awesome.

You do realize defaming an entire language and culture just based on your bigoted misconceptions of a single word is well within grounds for someone reporting you, right?

Reporting me for what? I am not defaming anything, I am simply stating facts and those are the facts.

You have not stated any fact that makes any sense except typing inflamatory words.

You haven't countered any of my arguments against using that word as an expansion name.

As far as I know, Valkyrie is not an expansion name. It's a separate project outside EVE.

For misconstruing the use of the Germanic word "Valkyrie" as having anything whatsoever to do with racism. I mean, what, do you hear "Goonwaffe" and scream racist too, because that sounds German?

...on top of all the other sheer idiocy of his poasting. I was just leaving that fact lie.

The Valkyrie.


and ? In my 48 years as American and a German mother hailing from having survived the War, never heard this about them. Why don't you tell us more ? I'm sure CCP will be fascinated.
