That is a total violation of all that is good and right about the IDIC.

Since there were assorted symbols in the pre-patch, I assume that there will be an in-game "logo builder"

Understandable, unsurprising, but disappointing none the less.

I'd happily pay a reasonable number of Cryptic Points for the right to have a proper fleet logo instead of an identikit one. If STO GMs had the power to revoke any offensive or inappropriate images without refund it might be enough to put people off being silly with it.

No, hang on, what am I saying? Some people really would happily waste money like that just for the thrill of annoying someone, as much as there are always people around who take great pleasure in being offended and getting to complain about it. I'm afraid that thanks to the behaviour of those two camps, the rest of us have to put up with being treated like children too.

Disappointing, but not Cryptic's fault.

I try and pop on the forums and see what's going on from time to time, but I wish Cryptic could invent some sort of post limit, perhaps linked to the amount of time you spend in game. Because as it is there are so many threads of whining and *****ing and moaning and flaming and trolling it's a small wonder the Devs can ever be bothered wade through it all and post comments themselves. Thank you to the Devs for putting up with a community that on average is entirely dedicated to sounding utterly miserable. I'm off to actually play the game.

I'm pretty sure Cryptic is fine with it.

However, CBS has a brand image to worry about.

Just imagine how many PvP players would have Porn Sprays as their logo... I mean, I've played Counter-Strike - I know where the custom system could go.

Oh yeah, of course. That sort of thing wouldn't bother me, but it's because of the people who go out of their way to be offensive, and the people who get offended at things like that that really don't matter, that ruin the fun for everyone else. C'est la vie!
