WoW: Weitere transphobische, sexistische und rassistische Anspielungen entfernt

WoW: Weitere transphobische, sexistische und rassistische Anspielungen entfernt (4)

Die Entwickler von WoW haben mit dem neuesten Update wieder viele anstößige Inhalte in ihrem MMORPG angepasst. Die Änderungen beziehen sich dieses Mal vornehmlich auf transphobische, sexistische und rassistische Anspielungen.

Die Entwickler von WoW machen weiter mit dem Entfernen von sexistischen, rassistischen und dieses Mal auch transphobischen Anspielungen aus ihrem MMORPG. Außerdem werden einige sexuelle Witze etwas entschärft. Bei den möglicherweise rassistisch aufgefassten Änderungen werden einige Dialoge mit Wörtern wie "Grünhäuter" (Greenskins) abgeändert. Die für WoW-Spieler wohl auffälligste Änderung betrifft den bekannten NPC Finkle Einhorn, der in Pip Quickwit (Deutsch Pip Flitzwitz) umbenannt wird.

Pip Flitzwitz

Der Gnom-Abenteurer Finkle Einhorn begibt sich in WoW (jetzt kaufen 14,99 € ) auf gefährliche Missionen und wird von Spielern aus dem Inneren der Bestie in der Oberen Schwarzfelsspitze befreit. In Classic WoW sind einige Gegenstände wie ein Streitkolben und ein besonderer Kürschnerdolch nach ihm benannt. Seinen Namen hat er aus dem Film Ace Ventura - Ein tierischer Detektiv mit Jim Carrey. Im Laufe des Films stellt sich heraus, dass es sich bei zwei Figuren um ein und dieselbe Person handelt - eine Wendung, die weithin als transphobische Beschämung kritisiert wurde.

Änderungen an Dialogen

Einige Dialoge, vor allem rund um den NPC Theresa - ein Mensch in Unterstadt, der als "Gedankensklave" gehalten wird - werden angepasst. Der untote NPC Gerard Abernathy experimentiert dort an dem Menschen-Charakter herum und will allerlei obskure Dinge mit ihr anstellen, unter anderem herausfinden, wie Theresa Menschen zeugen kann. All diese Dialoge wurden entfernt. Hier seht ihr jeweils oben den Original-Text und unten den neuen Dialog.

Grünhäute      

Ein Orc in WoW im Charakter-Editor des Pre-Patchs von Shadowlands

Mehrere NPCs in WoW bezeichnen Orcs aufgrund ihrer Hautfarbe als Grünhäute (Greenskins). Dialoge mit diesem Wort werden jetzt enfernt. Möglicherweise, weil das einen rassistischen Unterton hat, einige Wortschnipsel mit "Green Hide" bleiben jedoch bestehen. Eine andere Theorie besagt, dass diese Änderungen vorgenommen wurden, um potenzielle Konflikte mit der Orc- und Goblinrasse der Grünhäute aus der Warhammer-Serie von Games Workshop zu vermeiden, da das Unternehmen dazu neigt, gängige Begriffe als Markenzeichen zu schützen.

NPCs wie Captain Greenskin oder Items wie Erinnerung an Grünhaut und Grünhauts durchnässte Handfesseln behalten ihren Namen ebenfalls.
