Custom Emblems

In a livestream at Gamescom, Treyarch developer David Vonderhaar confirmed that the emblem editor would be returning in Black Ops 2. The emblem editor allows players to create their own custom emblems using a selection of shapes and letters that they can select, colorize and layer over one another.  While some people are extremely happy about being allowed to express their creativity in-game, others have complained that it will just lead to more pictures of dongs and swastikas. What are your thoughts on custom emblems?

    5. I agree . Its bs they will ban people with nazi stuff but not people having dicks on their emblem I got a permanent emblem ban because I had a nazi emblem but people that have nasty emblem with shit & dicks all over it don't

  3. On an unrelated note to this website's administrator, perhaps moderating comments retrospectively would encourage more activity. It's a bore waiting for comments to appear and makes fluid conversation impossible. I also dislike the immediate assumption that my post will be offensive or otherwise inappropriate.

    1. Hi Tony. Blog owner here. Have to keep comments moderated simply because a lot of people tend to try and spam their Youtube channels and websites. You also get a few people who like to post nonsensical comments that are full of expletives.

    2. Fair point, thanks for the reply. Personally I find spamming the most offensive :P

      Nice blog, got it bookmarked.

    1. They should give a reporting system (after every session you must review 3-5 players embelums if their good bad or innappropriate). This could also stop rage quiters. Treyarch should look at 100-200 of these reported embelums per member of staff and abusers will get banned.

    2. ^ dumb as fuck idea because then people would go on a banning war. Next thing you know peoples xboxs are getting console banned and microsoft is losing customers.

      Delete
    3. I think it really dosent matter what the players do, its up to them on how they make there emblems. "Nasty" emblems have nothing to do with rage quiters, They call them rage quiters because...they Rage Quit and people dont like to lose!

    4. I agree 100% i play this game with my 12 year old son..curses and sexual references should have a harsh penalty

    5. Dude its rated M for a reason...

  5. All they have to do is perma-ban anyone making emblems like that. Make the punishment so sever no one will do anything close to it!

    1. on black ops i knew someone that got banned and couldnt make their own emblem because of what he had his as

  6. its a great idea because its fun to make an emblem plus if you are in a little clan with mates you can make one for your clan!! the best way to stop people from making horrible emblems is by giving everyone a warning system, if you make an offensive emblem and it is spotted by Treyarch they should give you one day warning to remove it or you get a permanent ban!!!

    1. I think the clan emblems will cause a lot of trolls to copy your clan emblems and pretend it's theirs. Which I HATE... Just like people who uses the Optc or Faze clan on their profiles which is annoying... Lastly, the permanent ban is a bit harsh, so maybe about a 1 day ban to offensive emblems...and if they still don't remove it; they will get a 3 days ban, 5 days after that, and so on...

      Delete
    2. That's stupid, it should be a warning to change it. then a temp ban if they do not comply and the emblem is removed automatically. if the emblem bullshit persists from the player, only allow them to use a stock emblem.

      Delete
  7. Honestly, I think it's awesome. I made some really cool emblems in Black Ops 1, like the Incredible Hulk, Pac-Man, etc. But I REALLY didn't like seeing Swastikas and dicks all the time. I agree with the comment above. If a screenshot or proof is shown of the emblem in question, they should get one warning, then a ban.

  8. To be honest I think it's great they are coming back it let's everyone show there creativity and personally I though it was amusing seeing the different pictures people could make with phalluses but swasticas wer just offensive

    1. who are u to say what is offensive be cuz so personwantstohave a dick as there emblem is on them y shouled ppl say what we can or can not have that is what making ur own emblem is about isit not

    2. I dont agree with the offensive emblems, for example on ps3 because there is a lot of young children that play due to the internet being free. I also have xbox and i think its funny to see the creative side in people and to see how well a vagina can be portrayed lol but i think there should be something that allows the creator to check the box if it is offensive to anyone under 18. so anyone under 18 it will not show up. Like if your older than 18 and have an issue with it than look at your self because your prob 40 and and your mom still does your laundry lol

  9. I agree the punishment shld be sever after all the game itself is a rated M for mature not immature if I might state. But not to sideTrack the point of this post... I am excited we get to express our creativity once more :)

  10. people need to grow up and its 2012, if you get offended buy something like that what do you do when they swear in the game, you can always make fun of the person who's emblem you dont like. and i am def excited about the custom emblem

  11. i loved the custom emblems but i got tired of the gorilla with a rocket dong...

  12. I'm EXTREMELY sick of seeing planes hitting the Twin Towers. Genitalia and racist banters are appalling enough, but terrorism?? Come on... I'm with Raven: "Mature, not IMmature."

  14. I honestly love to create emblems i think black ops 2 will be amazing and me and my family already pre ordered 3 copies and i cant wait to play bo2 i hope they allow more layers and more letters and designs and stuff

    ReplyDelete
  15. i really like the customized emblems but what some people put as their emblem is unnecessary

    ReplyDelete
  16. i dont see the big problem in any emblems. just shows the maturity of the player. some are funny but thats it.

    ReplyDelete
  17. i think its funny, who cares what people do, dont be so damn uptight about it. if you dont like it then dont look at there pictures.

    ReplyDelete
  18. just hope they have alot of layers because i used to make alot of layers in black ops

    ReplyDelete
  19. I just hope they give you the Freedom to do whatever you want, with more options to choose from, and more layers. and preferably more letters.... because i want to make My Clan Emblem, and its hard when you dont have S's, n's, Or K's...

  20. i thought this was a good idea the first time around, why not bring it back. they should improve on it though. instead of having to start from scratch to create every emblem, they should have a way to save previous emblems you've created if you want to go back to use them again...just a thought...

    ReplyDelete
  21. Who cares on what these emblems look like. I think it's hilarious when I see these dick, racist, etc emblems. It's just people are so uptight about these things that the "trolling era" trended. They could be joking for all we care just to get a good reaction or because it's their sense of humor. Doesn't mean you're racist at all (you get the idea). But honestly I feel bad for Xbox users because of all the banning lmao

  22. they should moniter ppls emblems so if someone makes an offensive emblem like a swastika then a messege can come on the screen saying that the emblem is innapropriot. love emblem maker and i dont care when i se a swastika or a kkk guy luring a black guy to a trap with a chicken bone (ive seen at least 4 of those)but u know a sensor would be a good idea

    ReplyDelete
  23. i agree with Anonymous September 12, 2012 10:10 AM, that would be pretty cool to have a certain number of slots for saving emblems into. That would benefit the time a player put into creating a bad A emblem. REALLY HOPE they put this in the game!!!

  24. i dont see the big deal with dicks or swasticas, people should learn to take a joke an stop whining about being offensive jeez..

  25. whooooooooooooooo yeah my emblem uh ah

  26. I dont see the big deal with dicks or anything I think its kind of funny personally but racist crap is what I hate. Get a lot of guys getting on just saying racist comments because they get off on it. Im stoked to see the customizable emblems

    ReplyDelete
  27. I like the emblem creator and will be glad to see it back. All racist emblems should be banned and reportable. I could do without the sex emblems and think they are stupid. Also, there's nothing more embarrassing than playing a game and your girlfriend is there, or your grandmother or mother happen to be over and up pops some dick shooting cum all over the back of someone. I realize that most of the creators are underage, puberty-stage rejects, lacking parental guidance, but obviously a Mature rating is hard to enforce when it comes to video games.

  28. Personally I am tired of the dongs. But it gets you thinking do those people really like penis that much. I mean throw a vagina or a breast in there one and while. And racists i usually ignore them cause their always on saying racial explitives.

    ReplyDelete
  29. The emblem is designed for players to show their creativity. people who make inappropriate emblems don't care, so therefore, they should be banned from making emblems in the game. Treyarch is a great game developer company, and they try to ban people that make these inappropriate emblems. You may be tired of seeing these things, so Treyarch is on your side supporting the creativity. They want whats best for the good, respectful player.

  32. i think to many people in this world need to be desensitized if you dont like what someone has as their emblem if it offends you its very simple leave the game and avoid them by submitting a player review its that easy people instead of bickering about miniscule problems i think you are the ones that are immature whinning cuz youve been offended by something in a damn video game grow up

  33. The Swastika is originally a native American symbol, way before Nazis. So banning swastikas is discriminating against native Americans.
    PS dongs are funny

  34. Do they have preset emblems? I do not have the skill to even make anything let alone make something cool lol

    ReplyDelete
  35. What amaze me is; people ragin over a symbol but they have no problem killing and cursing at others in the game, you are all hipocrites, go play something else instead if your feelings are being hurt by an image.

  36. lots of talk about perm banning people over emblems, i wanted to point out as mentiond before banning wars and idk about you but my friends like to change stuff up on my account witch i share with my fam on ps3 so if im not the first person to use it after they mess with it, it will go unnotised so id prob get banned over something stupid...swastikas are actually a symbol of peace so dont hate.. regulateing this emblem stuff would just make it more laggy and i have more than enough of a problem with that as it is. next i have not looked at all on this but i think with cod elite you can bring a emblem from the comp to your game id. what would be really cool is if they made the game more clan friendly, so your emblem can be your armies then no one can copy or indevidual then others can copy, add a whole section to just clan, you cant get a clan tag unless your in that clan, shows a rank granted by clan leader you can view who in the clan is on and offline with a chat forem both mic and text frienly...just an idea

  37. Omg its a fing emblem if u don't like it don't look at it ok

  38. I think that since it is a mature rated game there should not be emblem bans

    ReplyDelete
  39. Putting an emblem creater up does have is great but we will all
    will have to put up with all of the immature poeple. yea they can be banned but what good is that gonna do all it will lead to is creating another profile and doing the same thing and its clearly stared that the game is rated M for mature its also stated the th game is for 17+ years of age but really how many 7 to 16 years olds will play. now if no on likes all of the opinions of self personality that poeple post dont look at there emblem or report them you can even quit the game oh and theres a thing called blocking them dont get me wrong i dont like all of the racist slurs and gang signs and the twin towers being hit but theres nothing i can do about it there are just some very sick poeple out there but we cant judge them based on what they put I just block them and never have to put up with there BS besides emblems isnt our problem its hackers which are unfare cheaters that cant do anything without aim bot or 15 prestige i purchased Black ops 2 when it first came out and one week later ther were already master prestiges

  41. A note to all talking about how we should get over swatstikas: its not the killing that makes me mad, its the fact that people take it as a joke. The nazis killed over 6 million jews! I don't care for the dicks, but when I see a swatstika I report it because I'm really offended by the lack of respect of what happened. Seriously, I don't see what's cool about them. They're just stupid and offensive.
