maybe it's [content removed] you word? if its only (you) well its a bug

 

Profanity. Post edited, no warning issued.

Please note that you must either fully censor the word or preferably not use the word at all.

Alright, which Dev thought it would be a good idea to ban the word 'you'? Really? One of the most common English words banned? I say it in most of my sentenaces when in-game? "You go right side". "Watch out, torps on your right" etc.
Yet (excuse my violation of the rules) the word 'Shit' can be said in the game chat. Why?
 

Issue: The banning of some... peculiar, words

Screenshots: Erm, well, people have tested it and it has been confirmed.
Ship: N/A
Map: N/A
OccurrencesIn 90%> of the games I play
Tested: Many, MANY times over.
Severity: Very big annoyance
Details:  Random words are being censored as part of an assumed faulty script/ line of code.

chat system in game still need some work to make teamwork more do able

 

i mean... it's PAIN!! to type someone name in chatbox even call out a ship name or ship type can still be misunderstood.

 

it would be good if we just press 'ctl' and click or double click on friendly ship and their name will automatically appear on chat box

Tested & confirmed, You, your & who are all coming up as ***, ***r & ***

who ever did this at WG needs a smack on the knuckles with a metal ruler!

It would be funny if it was April 1st but it's not! it makes communicating even harder!!!!!

As I said earlier - it is being investigated. No idea when it will be fixed, or how/what broke. Please be patient and just use "U" in place of "you"

 

Quick fix for those who are willing.

 

Go to \WoWS_Asia\res and open file messenger_oldictionary.xml I suggest you use notepad++ for this, since it is a xml file, and winpad and notepad fail to open them correctly.

Use the search function and find the word "you", there are a few in there, but you are looking for the line that has the word by itself. One you find the line, delete the entire line and save.

Restart your game.

 

All up, takes a few minutes and the problem is gone.

 

Current random words:-

1. you

2. Bear

3. chair

4. oooo

5. pie

6. your

7. who

 

As more appear, I will add them here. Untill a fix is done, you will have to manually remove them

I think its a Correction GONE BAD....

 

IMHO: They were supposed to Censor the word that came before it....  

EG:

"F.U.%.K You!"...... But....... what came out was...

 

"F.U.%.K ***"......... Lol... im sure you guys get the picture  :P

 

Im just kidding of course.
