    Also! 

    When the game launches, does everyone start out on the island as a level twenty then convert back to a level one?

     

    I think that's kinda annoying.. People will just do that to check out classes now instead of trying themselves ><

    Yea that's the new intro. Funny, I was thinking the exact opposite, havinng the chance to check a lvl 20 version of a class at the beginning can help people decide what to play. ;)

    OH! LOL.

    I guess the complaints about the channel chats in previous betas were answered in this manner. Zero tolerance, I think.

    OP, do you find it hard to speak or type without using an expletive?  May want to think about that.  If it's in their rules, I have no issues with it and wish other games would do the same.  I actually like to hear the subject of a sentence not the vulgar expletives that tend to drown out the point of a conversation.

    No, I'm just not liking the idea of being limited to what I say, I'm paying for the game, I should be allowed to say what I want.

    This isn't maple story, it shouldn't have word filters. IMO anyways.

    They have been filtering words sense CB1 I believe, so its nothing new.

    Velika: City of Wheels: Among the mortal races, the humans were the only one that never built cities or great empires; a curse laid upon them by their creator, Gidd, forced them to wander as nomads for twenty centuries...

    because it's a free, 2D pay to win kids game.

    Yeah, I guess when a game is 3d and you have to pay for it you shouldn't be able to cuss.

    They have a profanity filter ya know i turned it off every beta. and never once got a warning and i tend to swear like a sailor.

    Edit: it is probably different if you're cussing out another player tho cause that could be considered harassment...and thats in every video games code of conduct.

  • BoatsmateBoatsmate Springfield, MOMember Posts: 208

    I'm retired from the US Navy, and I can carry on a conversation without swearing, and never do around people I don't know or may not want to hear that. I f I can do that, anyone can. Now drop and give me 30 for the Navy.

    Ballerinas are always on their toes. Why don't they just get taller ballerinas?

    I really don't care if you can talk without swearing :P good for you ^^

     

    All I'm saying is that it's annoying that we're being filtered, it'd be nice to be able to say what I want.

    I think people should start watching what they say and how they carry themselves in game.  People nowadays think that just because they are behind a PC that they can act and do whatever they want.  Theres no reason to use foul language....there really isnt.  There are kids and others that do not want to hear that kind of talk in chat and you shouldnt assume that just because its ok with you, everyone should have to deal with it.  

    You dont hear people using foul language elsewhere (for the most part, unless they have no manners)....why should it be any different in game?

    dont swear and you wont get filtered..i have played lotro for 5 yrs on laurelin and the community is the best i have ever seen in an mmo.no swearing at all.anyways,why do you feel the need to swear.other thing is when swearing was it at someone or just in general..would like to know m8..it does seem a tad harsh,but if its their rules then so be it.

  • ToxiaToxia Member Posts: 1,306 Uncommon

    I'm just fine with them blocking cursing from their game. Even though you, OP, might throw one or two around occasionally, you KNOW there are those teenies who are dying to log in and just ramble off every one of them as fast as they can and as much as they can. This improves the community, i feel.

    The Deep Web is sca-ry.

    I'm shocked so many people are into censorship.
