Like c'mon now why censor face camping or other stupid words that isn't bad? because people feelings are hurt because the mean person over the internet called them a face camping bubba?

The censoring in game is so bad it reminds me of Roblox censoring and it's really bad too but more understandable because ITS A KIDS GAME

Jeez like it's even bad when I was trying to tell a person good game and somehow some words got censored making it seem like I was being toxic player

    The funniest thing is that names don't get censored so you can call you the most perverted name ever with sexual pratctises and what not but when you try to write that in chat it does not work this is hillarious. But yes the filters suck obviously, but for some reason in an 18+ game you cannot say some words bc some peoples mental state seems to be weak af or something? If you get hurt by words of random guys on the internet you shouldnt be on the internet.

    Sure dude hahaha, but for real this seems to be a problem these days, why do people care at all what gets said in post game chat and forums and whatever? Why would you care what a random person that knows nothing about you says... And if it so much as influences you then you should not be there as it may have a negative impact on you. But sure your point is indeed very true as I am homeless and live under a bridge, my PC with two monitors is also setup under the bridge... You have any more usefull contribution to the argument as to why 18+ year old people that can basically make almost every decision in life on their own are being censored in your 18+ year old murder simulator because words might hurt your feelings?

    A better way than just censoring words randomly would be to at least have an option to disable the filter as well as to just have an option to block people who spout nothing but insults, so you don't this stuff shown anymore, even better if you get an icon on people you already blocked so you can avoid the lobby. Most games have both options and I don't see that those would be hard to implement and they would be way healthier than this god awful filter you cannot turn off.

    no, they're right. it is up to me to not get upset when some random meg calls me a ######### after teabagging me at the exit gate. she is literally nobody, and clearly damaged at that, and i should be able to report her with full clarity for what she said and hold her to the consequences of her words. but instead, she can call me a ######### behind the filter, it gets censored out, i don't know what she called me, and there's no point reporting her because "the filter blocked it so nobody saw what it said and got hurt, technically". i would rather people who call other players slurs get banned rather than sloppily filtered and behaviour would earn a lot of good will from me for banning for that, especially since now we get told when our reports get acted upon.

    Online gaming has basically always had toxic communities, you probably will not find a single game that does not have at least a partially toxic community, the tone is just always a bit rougher, you can like it or not but it is how it is. My point is that it is already a given that you might encounter people that will insult you for whatever reason and that has in fact an impact on you than you need to find a way to avoid that, I think you can disable chat entirely? But then again is it worth the risk? What I meant was not that it is a bad thing that all the insults and other garbage gets censored but more that if you get hurt by words other than that... I mean you can still call people trash and insult their skill and what not and if that already has an impact on you then you should not be on the internet as you are way to easy to influence in your daily life by such things.

    Also overall people don't really complain about a filter as such but about how bad this one is, not only does it censor the most random things but you also cannot turn it off.

    Als your last part seems a bit hyprocritic xD First you tell me to go back to my bridge and then call for people that are unable to behave like mature adults to get off the internet... By that reasoning shouldn't you be off the internet as well pal? ^^

    And as for the whole debate about freedom of speech vs right to develop your personality freely without harmfull influence I would say that there is just a baseline off stuff you need to be able to deal with, not all the racist insults and what not but if somebody calls you trash then you either can handle it or you shouldn't play games with other people that you don't personally know because even the most chill player will call you trash if you really mess it up and that is somewhat fair.

    I want there to be the option for people to do what they feel appropriate, because I don't like to be treated like a child and that should be the same for every adult, it should be our choice to have that option on or off. I don't like being patronized. As adults we should be able to make the choices we feel are being the best or the ones we want and I don't think it is anyones business to interefere there, which is why I would like the option to turn it on or off, the same thing most games have, Mobas, RTS... Even in counterstrike you can mute specific players if you don't want to hear their nonsense anymore, but only in DBD we have a filter that not only does a terrible job, but cannot be turned off and I think this is completely inappropriate for an 18+ game. You could argue when it was for like 12 or 16 year olds that they are not fully able to agree to being exposed to some of the rubbish you hear in post game chats but it is not the case. We are fully grown adults and can make choices of ourselves.

    I don't think it changes anything where the response comes from nor does it apoligize it since I don't think this fits a mature adult neither way or does it?

    Just to make it clear statements need to be short here because no one is reading a one page essay about why it is like that unless especially asked for and it should be fairly clear that in a game for 18+ people it is each and everyones own responsibility to choose whether or not the community and game itself does them harm or good. And like I said if this harms you so bad then you should not be here, your choice after all you're an adult but you cannot complain then that the community is mean to you, that would like going to the chess club and complaining they don't play cardgames at all ^^ (a little bit of exaggeration here, but I guess you know what I want to say).

    All I want is the option to turn this filter off, then I don't care how bad it is anymore since it will not be active.

    Generally speaking yes (context does matter) but you cannot really tell me that insulting a person is ever the correct response ^^

    As for the being an adult part, it however means that there is not that much of a reason for certain measure similar to those for youth protection, it just means that you have to endure more in the sense of tolerate other peoples freedom of speech.

    That part wasn't about (racist)insults but the general trash talking, once again. Like I said at the beginning when the tone is rougher and people tend to trash talk more you already know what might be up there, and therefore you need to decide.

    The part about shifting the blame to victim is were I somewhat disagree and here is why. Generally speaking people build up a certain resistance, especially when they are used to rougher communities, which gaming communities are certainly one of. Most people (I know, no matter what group they are from in terms of gender race religion or whatever) simply don't care about stuff like that and I would say the majority of the population does not care about such trash talks, not the racist insults and stuff here, simply the trash talk. So when a person is overly sensitive to such things that the general public would not really care about then it is not necessarily the fault of the guy doing the trash talk but more the general risk of life of the other guy. It is kind of similar to food allergies or haemophilia where since there is a specific anomalie in play it alters your risk of life (I don't know a better term, but it is what we use in jurisdiction). This means that behaviour that would not be harmfull to a normal person is in fact harmfull to a person with a specific anomalie and now is the question does the offender take blame for it? Because usually people don't care about this sort of trash talk/insults, but this one person did. Which is why I don't necessarily think the offender is at fault.

    Yeah sure, but then again as someone before said that there should be consequences for it and that those consequences can only apply if you can report it, and since you cannot since it is censored I do not think the current system works. But obviously constantly getting called racist names is not something you would want anywhere.

    It censors whenever I say "ilu" as in "i love you". I can't even flirt with the Killer.😭

    Also I was always thinking about trash talk and not racist insults, I mean there is some degree of insults that you need to endure, cannot really give examples since this would probably get censored but ofc not the really hard ones. That was basically what I meant with the "Gaming communities are a bit rougher and you would need to endure some things".

    On that note there are some decisions from courts in my country where they say the same about football fans and them insulting each other :D

    Good to know, but then you basically have to report everything that was censored... And I don't think that is appropriate either, because then again you cannot properly decide if you want to mute that specific person, given such an option to exist in the first place, which is kind of the bare minimum for a game...
