Warning: IF you are butthurt after reading this, you need to take the advice given to heart
Hey Potatots! It’s another serious topic post. The ACG community really needs to chill and stop making themselves look bad. It is really childish and irritating. Most of you know and did stumble upon the recent news regarding Fate Grand Order (FGO) on Facebook or any other place on the internet. The news is about some fans dispute regarding the upcoming event (Next week- 13/6/18) <Guda Guda Teitou Seihai Kitan> would have some ties with the year 1945 of Japan. We all know that 1945 is the last years of World War 2 in factual history. All of you would be wondering why the fricking hell is World War 2 involved with something fictional?! And… Here is the story.
Recently, the FGO team – TypeMoon and Delight Works had announced the upcoming event for the Japanese Server would be having a new event <Guda Guda Teitou Seihai Kitan>* which would be set in the year 1945 with a bit of Meiji era roots; new servants would also be joining. A day after the announcement; few Asian non-FGO players (?) decided to voice their opinion regarding the aftermath of 1945 and Japan back then. Yes, Japan did awful things in the Asian content and majority of the Asians in Asia were affected even MY own family was affected. However, it is the 21st century now we must forgive the past and learn from it. Some may not be able to forget it; we need to forgive. But, FGO is a FICTIONAL story/game THAT HAS NO TIES WITH HISTORICAL FACTS in their story; the whole petty drama came out of nowhere prior to the announcement. IF you are reading this and got butthurt from it, PLEASE take this advice to the heart; THINK before you decided to start an argument and DON’T BE AN IDIOT!
After this, if you still won’t buy this statement; here is a more blunt way of explaining the whole situation. Lets put America into the picture, they are involved with quite a lot of political BS and YOU got offended, would you boycott to watch movies from Hollywood? Or boycott TV Shows and books? Some would; but would it affect the booming industry when in rake in Millions? It is the same concept with TypeMoon and Delight Works, FGO raked in a lot of income, they would disregard this petty thing and proceed with their planning. As a neutral person standing on this, my last advice to you all. Please separate fact with fiction, if you don’t want to play FGO then stay away from it.
