Having a little fun with this one, before anyone jumps on board and tries to make this a serious issue: it’s not.
So a charm dropped today, called “Team Earl Grey”, and I get that the official name is “Team Earl Grey”, but it’s a a representation of a bag of Earl Grey tea. And we can’t even generalize what it’s meant to symbolize or even literally be as such because of the auto flagging system in place on the forums.
Apparently it can be used in titles but not in the body of the post:
“There’s a literal -Yoink!- charm in the Halo Infinite store today and I can’t use the word ‘-Yoink!-’ to describe it as what it is: a virtual representation of a ‘bag of tea’”
See? And just for reference and to cover my 6, I am not trying to circumvent the system by saying this, I’m merely pointing out the inconsistencies that allow/disallow players and forum goers to discuss in game details on the official public forum.
Getting a little meta here obviously, but are we even allowed to have a conversation about this? I’m honestly confused as to how to even approach this topic. I’m literally laughing to myself, it feels like I’m potentially navigating a minefield trying to bring this attention.
The item is quite funny with the implication. But a 180 on using the word on the forums, why the censor when it’s in the game? Makes no sense. Now if there was a potato chip (crisp in UK/AUS/NZ), then “Dip, dip, potato chip!” away boys and girls!
I forget what I typed in but it was a basic game call out like “defend the guy with the ball instead of playing slayer” and it came out as “defend the ***** **** *** *** *** ** slayer.” I did the standard “huh” thing and put on my mic on to cuss out people.
I will get our top scientists to investigate this right away.
