A ‘Total War’ Game Is Being Attacked By Big Crybabies For Having Women In It

Scores of enormous pissbabies have taken to PC gaming platform Steam, to dish out negative reviews for a game called Total War: Rome II over its perceived increased spawn rate of female generals, citing historical inaccuracy and the injection of modern politics in a historical game as the reason.

As pointed out by PCGamesN, one reviewer posted a screenshot (featured above) from the game claiming that “over 50% of…generals [are] women,” and that this makes the game historically inaccurate. The thing is, this aspect of the game hasn’t been touched since its release back in 2013, nor has anyone been able to provide any evidence of a patch that increases the likelihood of female leaders.

In other words, these incredibly huge crybabies are pissing their britches over nothing.

Last month, Creative Assembly‘s community content editor, Ella McConnel, replied to one of the angry idiots who complained that there was “way too many women in the game now”.

“Total War games are historically authentic, not historically accurate – if having female units upsets you that much you can either mod them out or just not play,” she said in the reply. “People saying they won’t buy the game because there are too many women in it is fine with us – if that’s their reason, we’d rather they didn’t anyway.”

Nailed it. Today, the Total War Twitter account released a statement on the issue with a caption that simply said “yo”. 

Note in particular:

Female characters appear throughout the game, but have between a 10 and 15% chance of appearing as recruitable generals for some of the playable factions. The exceptions are the Greek states, Rome, Carthage and some Eastern factions, which have a 0% chance, and Kush, which has a 50% chance. This is to broadly represent the cultural differences in those factions during the time the game is set.

As Kotaku pointed out, YouTuber, Republic OfPlay, released a video showing that in the cultures which are able to have female generals, there’s a 65 per cent chance that characters will be born male anyway, so if anything, the game is historically inaccurate in favour of men.

In summary, a bunch of utter morons got so angry about a change in a video game that never actually happened and decided to hit back by giving it negative reviews on Steam, all because they couldn’t handle seeing women generals. This is the adult equivalent of throwing a fucking tantrum in Woolworths because mummy wouldn’t buy you a treat.

Kudos to Creative Assembly for not giving in to these ridiculous asshats who, frankly, can go straight to Hell.
