I was on some time later today and was in a battle, there was a Cromwell who died, and started to blam the player next to him, he yells a swear word (you know all to well).and the player next to him in a hellcat, asks, what dose that mean?. The Cromwell answers and says, it means your mama (swear word), and after battle I look at the hellcats stats and his stats are 37.4 Wr and he dose really bad in all the tanks he's went Completed. I a thought this might be a 6 our 7 year  old. but really 

 Wot blitz and all those multiplayer games Are just full of stuff for young children, WG you got to do something about this! This game needs to be a safe environment for kids. Here's how players with IOS device "hack" swear words, thay add a ô our a ú to keep the filter from reading the word.et me list a  some  ôöøõàâãńñćčžę WG has to do something about this.

the game is supposed to be 17+, is it not? if you ask me, swear words shouldn't even be edited.

Ultimately it is up to the parents of any children playing this game to determine whether it is appropriate for them to play Blitz. Blitz is an online multiplayer game, and thus it is expected that there will be vulgar behaviour and swearing. It exists on every multiplayer platform. It is impossible for WG to monitor the hundreds if not thousands of different variations of curse words that people can create - and nor is it their responsibility to.

And why would kids play WoTB? It has a rating for a reason. In my honest opinion, if a kid plays WoT, it's "there own funeral".

 

I admit, I have a 10 year old brother who plays WoTB. He watches me play it and thinks it's so cool. Another thing to note is that if kids do end up playing WoTB, just restrict them to the lower tiers, where raging isn't a common thing. That's what I do to my brother to ensure a safe, clean environment.

I don't care whether it's a kid or not, as long as they are good, and by good, i mean do more than 1000 damage per game and if they see a stronger teammate on low health then they move to take shots.

 

But i agree, swearing shouldn't even be edited out.

Wot blitz is rated 12+ for war violance, but for the language in it why is it not 17+? If WG. Cannot filter them then thay can ban the players that say them, for a week should do it.

it's 10 for a WG account although nobody follows the ESRB rating caus it's proven its [edited]and WG don't care caus it's a player as long as there's not any trouble and if it's through the App Store it doesn't matter caus then they could just use Game Center if they wanted

this just is not right. Sorry about making this out burst, but really, what will happen to the next generation of our life, look at the kids back In the year 1800-1900, kids did not see this typ of stuff that's on the internet , well I tried , but thanks any way.

I agree that it should be banned. Thought some have brought up that it is rated "T" for teen, that is a messed up rating system. It's the same reasoning that allows sexual innuendos on Y7 children's programs or G rated movies, but then turns around and rates something PG because it has a cigarette in it... :ohmy: Unfortunately there is probably nothing the devs can do to fix it other than bans for reported violators of the rules.

 

It is more on the community to clean up their language. No one likes being sworn at, even adults. There is no real cause for it either. Most workplaces will fire employees for foul mouth behavior, especially in the line of customer service. Restaurants and public shopping places also have the right to ask people to leave who are using offensive language. People just need to use common decency that everyone will appreciate. It can make the game better, it can make the forums better...

I do, cause frankly, most of this and last generation has something to be desired. When all the current adults perish, i believe that there will be a revolution of environmental safety, therefor saving the planet and preventing it's destruction which is already happening at a steady rate because of greedy fat pigs running everything.

While the game itself has a rating, all online games have the disclaimer "Online interactions not rated by ESRB." I'm not sure if WoTB has the same disclaimer, but it applies. That being said, we all agree to the EULA when we make our accounts, so....

my bad. i assumed since it's a war game that it would be 17+. but i guess since there is no blood... T for Teen sounds about right.

There's no need for the bad language - it would only make the experience more toxic with trolls, not improve things.  My son plays this game, and if the language wasn't edited I wouldn't let him, plain and simple.  But WG is obviously targeting 8-12 year olds as they are advertising in games for that age demographic.  There are plenty of ways to get your point across without needing to curse IMO...
