Need Option To Disable Language Filter
when did this language filter happen? its obnoxious af. there needs to be a option to disable it. please work on fixing the game's actual problems instead of fixing non problems and making the game worse.

oops gonna have that whole post censored now
ontopic, I agree. let those who get offended by words such as ♥♥♥♥, ♥♥♥♥ etc (in a game depicting human killing) enable it, but I do not think censorship should be applied to those who do not wish it.
whats hilarious i was typing something about my ally's bombard cannons and abbreviated it as BBC. Which got censored. 111111

roflmao. cant abbreviate bombard canon cuz some pearl clutcher cant handle the BBC. would be nice if the game was treated as if the player base is 99% adults.

i dont mind them keeping it as an option, the kyword here is an OPTION. It seems mindless to put censorship on such stuff in a game about killing and war

+1 very annoying.

It doesn't filter out just bad language either, if it catches a smidge of naughty words it'll *********** the entire sentence and any dialogue afterwards for an unknown amount of seconds.

yeah screw it off, you can't even type "damn"

Add an option for the profanity filter
I don't have any issue with profanity filters in games, but this feature wasn't present in the game since it went out, and seems like it was pressed into the latest hotfix without any consideration.
It's extremely harsh, censors the entire phrase, not just the word, and even censors less "vulgar" words like damn or even penis (it's the proper medical terminology, not even a swear word)
I get it that some people don't want to see profanity while commiting war crimes and massacres, but at least let it be optional, like in many other games.

New patch has completely screwed up the chat...
It seems everything I write is censored (wtf for example) and I see no option to turn off the censor. And now chats take 2-3 seconds to show up for some reason. Game is completely unplayable now since I can't even communicate with my teammates given that most of what I write will be censored.

Onager is censored, can't even communicate with team lol

-Unfortunately I didn't see any official comments about it.

-I would recommend to leave your feedback in this thread and/or a thread in the official forums.

well it was most likely introduced because of those racist people with offensive lobby names and chat. There has been requested multiple times since HD to microsoft to do something against that. It's not possible to moderate the game so they need filters.

I understand why slurs would be censored, and they should be censored

But regular swear words like f_u_c_k and s_h_i_t... come on man we're all at least 20
jesus christ i cant say onager. i literally cannot communicate with my team. the verbatim names of units in this game are censored. what a cancerous abortion. this type of crap happens everytime someone and especially some faceless bureaucracy tries to control other people with moral bullcrap..

THE GAME FUNCTIONED PERFECTLY FINE WITHOUT THIS. NO ONE WANTED IT. NO ONE ASKED FOR IT. THERE IS ALREADY A MUTE FUNCTION. MY GOD.

i am frankly getting tired of moral busy bodies ruining things because they are trying to suppress, and control the masculine style of communicating, socializing, and peer bonding. Masculine expression is irreverent, rambunctious, and vulgar. it is outright sexism to try to suppress it.

I was okay with them adding in a filter for common swear/curse words, especially if its optional. I played AOE when I was 5/6 so it would make sense that there's a lot of young children being introduced to it. It's not a graphically violent game so it would make sense why they want to filter out bad language.

But seriously, what is offensive about the word "onager". This is ridiculous. Remove this filter so we can discuss our strategies with team mates again.
