A few people took offense to a few of the units in EvH1.
One person didn’t like the Vomiter, because the concept was kind of gross. And another player didn’t like the Token Black Guy because it was an explicit race reference. No one mentioned the Obesity upgrade, but I’m sure someone thought I was making fun of fat people.
The line between offensiveness and fun can be very thin, and everyone’s going to be different. But there is something to keeping things as non-offensive as possible if the audience could be anyone.
That having been said, I planned on replacing the Vomiter anyway. The “napkin plan” has a set of Pirate units for the Eggs; the Vomiter’s replacement is the Rum Drinker.
The Token Black Guy is not set to return (this doesn’t have to do with the complaint)
The Couch Potato’s Obesity upgrade will be renamed to “Beer Belly”.
Now with the references to rum and beer, someone’s going to say “You’re making light of alcoholism!”
You just can’t win.
