Are you actually allowed to swear in this game?

I had another chat ban the other week for vulgar language. Been chat banned a few times now so I'm usually cautious about what I say but I do remember getting annoyed at some stupid DD Captain in the dying stages of the game who instead of capping the point and giving us the win decided to attack a AFK player in the enemy spawn area. As he ran off to torp the AFK BB the enemy DD started capping our flag, despite the entire (dead) team telling him to get on the cap as the enemy DD was heading towards ours he paid no attention, we lost because of this but just before it finished I just said (after been very frustrated at this jerk having had a  really good game with 4 kills and lots of awards) something along the lines of 'Nice one you d--khead (edited) you cost us the game'. Ok I swore, hardly a R rated insult but like most of my team I was pretty annoyed at the stupidity of this guy.

 Anyway the next time I logged in I had the ominous message 'you've been chat banned for blah blah blah'. 

 

 I thought this game had a swear filter option? Seen a lot worst language in this game especially if someone says something political, religious or racist. I know some people are easily offended and there are a few token children playing this game but PG rated insults are hardly worth a ban. Hate to see some of the thin skinned members play a game of Counter Strike or Fortnite with the X rated language and insults that plague those games.

Yes, within limits. I've let my share of four letter words slip out in chat, never been banned. 

But if you're cussing people out regularly then you will get noticed and you will get banned. I'm guessing you have a history of less than polite comments about your team.

No you are not allowed to swear but the rules say only excessive swearing is a violation. I have been banned via ticket for a single F bomb not even directed at a player. Yet WG refuses to add a chat filter? Its extremely confusing.

I cuss out a CV at least once a week. Usually just lose a karma point or two, but I’ve yet to be chat banned and I’ve def gone on some rants. 

This isn’t a game that’s popular with the youth, so let em have it. We’re almost all adults. Probably?

If you have seen my posts I am extremely harsh toward unreasonable people

But I have never been chat banned

Why? I pretty much never talk in chat, nor do I ever read it.

You all know the general quality of players in random battles, so why bother talking to them?

Ignore them and focus on your own gameplay.

I doubt it was for that single F-Bomb. How you say things is really more important than what you say.

I’d be banned from game if I was a DD player.

You can doubt all if you want but its true. There is zero profanity allowed if you get reported.

^ This. It's known as The EULA.  You agreed to it when you signed up for WOWs duty.

I don't see the need or point of having to swear in chat in a game? Seems like a lazy way to get a point across. I can swear like a drunken sailor myself but I reserve that for times where I am alone or with close friends/relatives. I don't act like that in public and that includes online.

Well that maybe true but some use it casually without any angry intent. What also lazy is not having a chat filter if its such a problem.

Not using it to begin with, eliminates the problem.

Well, quite a few of us have never been chat banned for related violations of the Rules Of The Game.  So maybe you need to reevaluate your stance and gameplay.

This is the internet and this is also the age of outrage. You ask too much.

The bottom line is that it is against the EULA you agreed to.  If someone reports you in a ticket and WG reads the chat log (everything you say in chat is logged), WG will may ban you for it.  That's the answer to your question.

Funny thing is that games with such filters often still ban you for doing things like that.

Wait...Wut???

Not sure how you can possibly be confused...we all know a filter would be a moot point because you would just b¥¶^$$ any filters they were to install anyway...

...are you really trying to tell us you don't know that & a filter would somehow make a difference?
