While EA's new title Medal of Honor is getting alot of praise, and raised expectations lately, there was still one thing lingering around. The fact that some "fans" were getting upset that the online portion of the game had a team titled Taliban. The debate lasted months, and now we have come to a conclusion.
EA is no longer putting Taliban in the final release of Medal of Honor. Well, the avatars looking like them will still be there, but the team will be called "Opposing Force" instead of Taliban. Which hopefully clears up any nonsense the tear eyed folks brought about to this title. Smart decision on EA's part, not only to please the people, but to keep the controversey away from video games as a whole. Call of Duty had a similar move last year, somewhat censoring (with a warning before hand) about the No Russian level.
From EA: "However, we have also received feedback from friends and families of fallen soldiers who have expressed concern over the inclusion of the Taliban in the multiplayer portion of our game. This is a very important voice to the Medal of Honor team. This is a voice that has earned the right to be listened to. It is a voice that we care deeply about. Because of this, and because the heartbeat of Medal of Honor has always resided in the reverence for American and Allied soldiers, we have decided to rename the opposing team in Medal of Honor multiplayer from Taliban to Opposing Force."
