I’ve gotten SO many submissions lately that here’s a special reader-submitted Hall of Shame update – they’re sending them in faster than I can go through my own screenshots folder. For many of these, snarky comments were attached in the file name and I didn’t even have to do that!

OK, to be fair, I still need to do things to images that are sent in.  The curse of SWTOR, unlike some other games, is that the fleet is so freakishly dark (and most other planets too).  So almost every screenshot taken by me or someone else has to be brightened (for me, using a cheapo editing program) before being ready for public perusal.

Let’s get going with this epic update to the Hall of Shame.  I should have these images incorporated into the Hall of Shame page soonish.

This looks like an imperial schoolgirl uniform.  He's been a naughty boy.

Doubly awful.

Underboob x 2 = Quadboob

Triple threat - Flasher jacket, pink undies, silly hat

That's one super stealthy operative, you'll never see all that lime green coming

More lime green and purple hair

And there are 25 more.  Not even joking.

Poor poor Ashara.

Fantastic armour for anyone who doesn't value their insides

Elegant, formal, right up until you forgot to put pants on

Hiding her face in shame.  Also zabrak with a miraluka hood?  It's not a miraluka.  DUH.

My mistake, I wasn't sure if you had pants on or not

Poor Nadia.

Poor Nadia, the superhero.  Putting on a mask with a flasher outfit doesn’t make you The Flash.

The outfit's fine but I'm not sure on those dyes

I seriously wonder why pink and purple dyes were ever put in this game

Maybe it's not actually that bad but I still don't like that geen with purple hair

The clipping! The underboob! Combo-bad-fashion

A double act - only spotted the companion when going back through screenshots

Another sith that forgot their pants

And the Names Section, which is my personal favorite (and still some bad clothes).

Actually I sort of love this one.  Naming themes that work are just badass.  Too bad about the outfit.

Gotta respect finding a theme and sticking to it.

I guess all the foil wrapping fell off this chocolate

How did this even get through the naming filter?

The Update To The Hall Of Shame In Which Readers Do All The Work — 8 Comments

  1. I’m not sure their naming filter even works anymore. There’s a guy on my server with “fucker” in his name (no special characters or anything) whom I’ve reported more than once but clearly Bioware doesn’t care enough about these things to actually do anything.

    • If the game supported Unicode, then I’d expect that they were sneaking in characters from other Unicode sets to defeat the filter, but back when I started playing the game I tested both character names and chat, and it didn’t recognize Unicode (although given the server locations, I don’t think Bioware cares that it shuts out players in countries with non-ASCII script unless they use an ASCII-based language or transliterate their chat — i.e., ‘molniya’ instead of ‘молния’). So you’re probably right that they’re only checking names against a set of canon or in-game names, and maybe a small number of substrings.

      If making jerkass names was something I was interested in, I’d be tempted to see if “Swive-thyself” would make it past the filters; the character would probably need to be Imperial, althugh I’m not sure what class I would make it.

  2. Dang it, I missed a screenshot of my recent favorite, but it was perfect – fem character in a bikini, dyed purple/pink, plus Thana’s spikey-knee boots and the damn Marka Ragnos helmet. No words for it.

  3. I like that too- “Lord Meringue/Scrumptious Legacy”. Reminds me of someone not long after launch on a now-gone server who had the “Creme Legacy”…you’d see their various characters around fleet, “Darth Raspberry Creme”, “Darth Vanilla Creme” etc. At least they were consistent.

    The rest, I just…I don’t know. I think the larva adds a special je ne sais quoi to the quadboob, though.

    • Oops wasn’t right after launch, was right after legacy was launched (1.2?)…ergh need more coffee asap.

      Which I will sip whilst not looking at this page. Lest I spit it all over the keyboard in mirthful horror.

    • At least he finds a theme and sticks with it. On the downside, that was the week that the underpants were broken and would make half of the leg go invisible. It looks really odd.
