I can't use the word of "Collector" I have to use "Collecter" instead because it's censored. I am just trying to say "I am a tank collector" and "collector" censored.

Is there a bad meaning behind it?

Does it bring the movie Collector back in mind where psychopath dismantle or tear people's body apart and reassemble as their own arts?

I tested it, it's because the word "e _ cto" is in it, and I do not know what that means. Its just a funny coincidence.

 

Edit: I just tested it, "collector" isn't censored in Player chat anymore.

I don’t get it either. Most people will think of someone who collects things like coins.

the "ecto" censor is one of the weirdest things, and at least used to prevent people from saying "alecto"  or "vector" 

 

also at least at one point you couldn't say "advance"

 

I havent tested em in a while. 

 

This has been mentioned as a bug many many many times.

The censor is just rediculous.This game is rated T+, not E.

What's extremely annoying is the huge range of censoring.

 

Seriously, when you can't say everyday words that can be useful in battle...it's a detriment to the team in some cases.

 

I understamd censoring the curse words...no problem there (though, as the son of a sailor and his nurse wife, as well as  being a future sailor, I struggle to think of curses I haven't heard.

 

But even some of the other words, such as fart...

 

Are you telling me that no child under the age of 13 (the specified minimum age limit for the game that no one cares about) has heard or said that? In fact, I'm sure they're using that sort of 'light cursing' well before they reach 10 years of age.

 

Now, maybe that's just a thing in America...it may be different elsewhere.

(Forgot to reply to this in my above post)

 

Advance has the letters of dance. Dancing and other fun activities are not allowed in Soviet Belarus.

Because "tor" reminds people of Lex Luthor, and he's scary. TRIGGERED.

Unifying TRIARII factors:

1.How much money we've spent on this game (not to mention the new parking garage required for all of our M 60's)

2. The amount of alcohol consumed while playing tanks. 

3. How much fun we have with, and at the expense of, each other

I know "gang bang" isn't censored. I use this line when it's 6-0.

I remember a time when "intelligence" was censored. 

 

Am I overthinking this, or does this symbolize something within WG?

lol


Google "succulent chins" and click on the first result. It will be very much worth your time! Some satisfied customers:

"T'was worth the read, but I shall never read it again. You have amazing writing skills, though. Teach me how to writeeeeee!" -you happy now?!?! HUH!?!?

"lol, googled succulent chins. It was worth it"

"10/10 wouldn't read again"
