Can they just increase ignore list size please? Also I would think racist stuff is already in the mature language filter isn't it? I never use it but it would be common sense (then again it's Activision-Blizzard).#1 banned word? Pooh bear.
But are they censoring: ''I fart in your general direction, your mother was a hamster and your father smelt of elderberries.'' ?
Great news. Thanks Blizzard
Wait, so is Blizzard the one that determines reserved words? For a moment I thought this was a feature that let us selectively filter words and that would've been pretty cool.
No, never censor speech! There will always be a new slur anyway...
Isn't there already an optional naughty word filter? Why mandate it for people who are happy to leave that turned off?
Cool to do something about racial slurs. Hopefully it doesn't extend to using the names of people Blizzard doesn't like or meme nicknames for terrible people that give Blizzard money. For instance, hopefully I'll still be able to say Winnie the Pooh a year from now.
How about banning and "boost" from the LFG?
Very unlikely. Blizzard makes a lot of bucks with selling tokens for that.
Can this be turned off at all?I can see a future where swear words in general are censored, they’ve already started purging them from in-game text like with Garrosh.Or maybe they’ll start censoring words like Taiwan or Tiananmen Square.
Long past due
I wonder if you can fool that filter with leet speech. As like "Ch1n4 d3m0cr4cy n0w".
assassination roguewill this then ba a chat ban?Contains 2x a*s lmao
The list had better be miniscule, man. I'm okay with IRL racial slurs being prohibited, because even roleplayers won't use them since they can't canonically exist (racial, religious, homophobic, transphobic, etc.). However, this game is rated T, not E (and IMO, World of Warcraft would be better if it were rated M), so please don't touch honest swear words.
Knowing Blizzard, theyre probably going to block the wrong word in other languages
