It does seem to have increased in sensativity. I played with the character name "Testy Testerton" thru beta (and many other closed and open beta games), and Foundry is the first to label that name as innapropriate.
While i can understand the importance of keeping this clean given any child can pick up the game and play it, there is a point where the restrictions begin bordering lunacy.
I haven't tried it out yet, but my gut is that the game does not allow certain words from the series (such as Enterprise, Voyager, Defiant). It may be registering these "forbidden words" as profanity since the designers didn't bother listing which words aren't allowed for which reasons.
This isnt true. I was just playing a mission "Worst of All Worlds" and in it, my science officer noted that scanners could locate the "Reliant, Constitution and Enterprise" in the area
Awesome mission as well btw, kudos to Captain Revo
If "t<space>it" registers as profanity, you are going to knock out quite a few English sentences.
And what about "Assault", "Assimilate"....?
Assassination is like saying a naughty word twice....
What are we 12? The game is T for Teen for goodness sake! Have you ever gone to a public school in America? Have you ever spoken to a 16 year old?
Please, any teen who doesn't know and embrace these words is likely so sheltered they won't fit into society anyway, kinda like that odd character Al Franken played on SNL, Stuart Smalley the bright and cheerful self-help guy who had issues coming to terms with the darker parts of reality.
But, I digress. I couldn't name my robotic ninja guy In Champions Arc L.I.T.E. for reasons that were not immediately apparent.
I dont have a problem with them censoring whole profane words, but censoring any combination of words that happen to also form the occasional oddity is going too far. If someone wants to swear in the chat panel they'll find a way regardless
