    Doesn't work. There's a grand total of one person objecting to this, and that's you. Regardless of how many people you believe are offended, there's only one of them who it bothers enough that they're posting.

    This man has it right. This is a personal problem that you should sort out, and valve doesn't need to change the game based on the religious views of one person because they are offended by a video game. Mods should really come in here and lock this I think.

    I've seen this before, it was already discussed and everyone know it will lead to nowwhere. Now stop writing huges walls of biblical-nonsense and play the game like it's supposed to be: like a toy. If you don't like it, don't play it.

    If the game offends you, don't play it. It's that simple.

    However, if you get enough people to sign a petition, maybe Valve would add a downloadable mod that changes the pentagram to a smiley face. I think most people that would be offended by this wouldn't be playing DotA, though. This reminds me of the people screaming about Harry Potter being about devil worship when they had the simple option to not read the book. God help them if they actually find a book about devil worship, and hopefully you stay away from games like Diablo.

    So you believe that a certain group of people should have their feelings considered only because they encompass a significant portion of the population and therefore have power? So the issue is not at all on the issue of being offended? Those few people faithful to the Pagan ways should just, by your logic, have to deal with it because they're not as numerous as you guys. Double standard much, hypocrite? In the context of DOTA, I'm sure you are the only one or of few to complain relative to the number of people who don't give a shit if the hero references the devil. So, I guess we win by your democratic standards, then? gg no re

    Taking the pentagram out offends me as much as having it in offends you. Checkmate Valve.

    The problem is, every time you make this thread (and this is at least the fifth one I've seen), you hear opinions that disagree. Every time. There hasn't been a single person saying that they agree with you in any of these threads. And yet you still carry on posting this and claiming this is offensive. If you really wanted to hear opinions on both sides and have a discussion, you'd have dropped the topic after seeing opinions in the first thread you made.

    To me, hispanics are real. Please remove storm spirit, it is disturbing to even mention in game.

    I'm sure OP can customize his own skill icons and relevant hero files to make Doom into a family-friendly hero for his copy only. No need to ruin the hero for the MAJORITY because you are one of few to take offense.
