....I mean emblems. 

This is something that is not difficult, and which people have repeatedly asked for. It's exactly what I mean when I say WG has zero customer orientation. We should have had that button promptly in the next patch.

^^^ Just DL Aslain mod pack like everyone else. So far I think your the only customer raising the issue.

I shouldn't have to use a third-party program, and Aslain wont let me turn off MY emblems. I don't like taunting players I've just killed after a hard fight. That's completely wrong.

What's wrong with emblems? 

(1) Emblems are taunts of a ship you just killed and (2) they block your view of the screen so that tactical information is blocked, and (3) you sometimes miss the pleasure of watching torps and shells slam home. 

They were a stupid waste of dev efforts, with so many more urgent needs like MAPS.

Then we have a conflict of ideas with the developers. No worries Aslain mode is so popular chances are they have it to keep your emblems out of their way too. So that is what I suggest. DL Aslain.

A minority of people have problems.  Not doing it does not mean Dev are automatically out of touch...  No program/game works off of the vote of the minimum.  It is on the screen so little I don't even remember the last one I saw and I just died.

They have bigger fish to fry.  There is a way to deal with it - take it.

Why complicate your life in the game over trivial matters/issues??There is a fix, its highly recommended that if you have a conflict of ideas with the developer. I recommend using Aslain until your cause is resolved. At this rate, its faster if you DL Aslain mod.

because the flag to turn off content is already in the code.  It's a low hanging fruit for them.  There is no reason other than they are out of touch and stubborn.

^This-

Sorry but some people don't want nor like mods on their games. We should not have to download a mod to "fix" something we never asked for. :Smile_honoring:

Exactly! Why complicate my life by having to download third party software? 

Like I said above, Aslain doesn't turn off MY emblem. I don't like taunting ships I have just killed after a hard fight.

Many people have problems. There were long threads about it when it appeared. 

The issue isn't whether it is a minority of people complaining (have you seen a survey about it? I haven't). The issue is that some substantial portion of the player base does not want an item that is a classless taunt representing them, but can't get rid of them easily, even though it is a trivial issue for programming. 

They dont even have to change things  -- they could just supply a transparent emblem. That would solve half the problem.

I got a survey for Arms Race today. I agree with the OP all we ever asked for was a toggle, the same as many other things in the game.

Like a option to mute the F-keys as well.

It's not a taunt. You're misinterpreting it as one. Relax.

Lol some of the things you guys complain about.  How is an emblem "taunting" you? 

You'll just have to figure it out.

Yes, it is. When your screen fills with another player's hideous representation when you have just been killed, it's a taunt. I know who killed me 100% of the time already, it is listed on the screen and I know who was shooting. Moreover, many people complained that emblems are taunts when they came out. WG decided to deal with it by hoping it would go away. 

Since it isn't a taunt, you won't mind if we can toggle it off, right?

Funny, I don't even notice them anymore. They were a bit silly to spend time developing but I cant say I notice or care about them much

There's no intention on the part of the person who sinks you to taunt you. There's nothing sarcastic or insulting or whatever else. It's only the automatic appearance of a symbol, and the symbol disappears after a few seconds.

"To reproach in a sarcastic, insulting, or jeering manner; mock" is the definition of "taunt."

Where exactly is the taunt? Also, how can there be a taunt if there is no taunter? Again, there is no intention of the part of anyone to taunt you, and thus there is no taunter. How can you be taunted if there is no one taunting you? Misinterpretation.

They're only up for a couple of seconds, unless your in Clan battles or tournaments it shouldn't be a problem.

Yep. It's automated.

And yet, it is there, taunting me. Someone is taunting me, and many other people who are also irritated by seeing that taunt there. Who put it there? 

You're absolutely right, not the player it so hideously represents. So I am asking the people who put that taunt there, and who can get rid of it, to make eliminating it possible.

It has no positive social or game function. Why expend energy and time to make it? Why waste pixels and electricity to keep it there?
