Off topic: reading the name of the new product, I suddenly depicted the upcoming FPS fighters as light drones without their AI brains and a flesh lump inside.

Valkyrie is a game, not an expansion.

In other news: lolwut.

Well, there is the use of the term referring to the females of Valhalla who would claim mortal warriors about to be slain for Odin; to enjoy endless evenings of feasting and days of battle.
I understand that it originally comes from the mysics/wives of warriors who would wail at the sidelines of a battle in order to influence the outcome in some kind of magical sense, or intimidation?

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.


We already have drugs, we already have racism ("Boy get back in that field and pick my cotton" said the amarrian slaver to the minmitar child), and we have exploding ships which are graphically represented, and could be arguably violent. All we have left to add is nudity so bring in the strippers for our WiS corporate bar.


There are drugs but it's not really drug abuse.

What we need is capsuleers getting hooked on grugs, doing anything for a fix.

A few examples where Valkyrie is used.

Point out where the "racist" is? Are you perhaps thinking of Operation Valkyrie? Operation Valkyrie was a plot to assassinate Hi.tler so nothing racist about that.


CCP, your list of blocked names and words desperately need a overhaul.

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



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?


Totally bat **** crazy.

Not idea what you are talking about moron

Maybe if you read more you would know what I am talking about. It might actually improve your grammar as well.

I've only come across one ISD action all day and it was a thread moved to the Bazaar. That's it.

OK. We shall all now proceed to read the entirety of humanity's written knowledge just to possibly discover your 'oh so precious' secret information.

Got it.

It's people who think up crap like this, such as OP, that make stuff racist.

I've read the whole thread, you've still not said why you think its racist, but you were then racist to poor indians.

And a miss type is not a grammer issue, its a I can't believe this guy is real issue.

Nice troll, hope your forum ban lasts a long time :)

He has honestly yet to explain what element or concept is racist in the first place. It's lost on me.

Drugs do weird things to the mind.

Is OP a troll or genuinly trying to say European mythology is racist? He does know that this game is made by Europeans and Nordics no less?
