I agree with the OP on this one.

 

Some things should just be considered out of bounds. Idiot, noob and moron - who cares? But racism, overt sexually violent language has no place in this game. I will usually stop and take a couple seconds to tell someone who has typed such things to shut it as this is not necessary. If it continues - it's screenshots and reporting. It's worth the time and effort for me to ask WG to tune people like this in to reality.

 

Senator - I like the disable battle chat but with the caveat that we get to mute users on an individual basis. Battle chat can be useful in end game scenarios, the dead can sometimes provide useful advice to the living.

 

And to everyone who says just ignore it. There are some things that are not funny and should not just be brushed off. Sometimes all it takes is bringing it to the offender's attention that language like that is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. Too often people go around thinking they can say whatever they want because it's just a game.

 

This is indeed a game but a game played with other humans. Please battle hard but at least respect each other.

 

See you on the battle field - o7

What they block and what they don't block make me wonder.  The other day I tried to type the name of a tank in the chat (I was dead and I was trying to help my teammates) and it blocked the name of the tank, and it wasn't the SP1c, I forget what tank it was now but that amazed me.  They blocked the name of one of their own tanks...what is up with that?

As far as salty chat, I could care less if someone tells me to drop dead.  Most of the time they only see a small portion of the game you played and don't understand what you did and why you did it.   So the only thing that irritates me is when people use racial or religious taunts.  Call me a moron, that is fine but show a little bit of class and don't show your bigotry.

Alecto

probably a bad word in some other language.

Yes, I think it was the Alecto

But this is what the name comes from: Alecto (Ancient Greek: Ἀληκτώ, English translation: "the implacable or unceasing anger") is one of the Erinyes, or Furies, in Greek mythology.

 

Not sure what it means in Polish but yes that is the one they blocked.

It's a mystery.

There have been a few threads on it.

Search "alecto" in the forum search box if interested.

In the last hour I have been told to commit suicide 1 time, rape referenced 2 times, and asked to walk into traffic.  This is just plain crazy and out of control.  How can WG not have a filter that stops the word rape and suicide?   I think we don't really need those words in the our vocabulary for this game or chat to function correctly.

 

I am almost ready to quit the game just because of the language and more importantly the lack of respect to each other.  Just because you cannot last longer than two minutes in any match doesn't mean it is time to turn on your teammates. 

 

UGH.

 

Mute. The. Dead. Mute them. It would solve so much.
