This is a joke right EA? you was informed many times over the Alpha and beta that your chat was blocking people because of their names, and you have not only failed to fix it but failed to even acknowledge it. 

Look at mine Comedykev,. it has D Y K E in it so you think it needs blocking, then look at some of the others on this thread, the same issue.

i am unable to type ingame because of your new system, all other BF games its fine. 

 

 

Can you even acknowledge that you are aware of this issue and that you are looking into it to your customers 

 

Edit: ive had to change my name because DICE wont help since the Alpha, and guess what..this name dosent work either!!!

Hey everyone,

 

Our profanity filter has an issue where some names can't be posted within in-game chat. If a word is filtered and it's part of your name that's what's causing the profanity filter to trigger. We are looking into the system but no ETA for a fix.


In the meantime there is a workaround, to change your name/user ID. We're aware this is not an optimal choice, but hopefully it helps some of you. If you check this article it'll detail the steps you need to take.

 

How to change your name/ID:

We'll let you know when we hear anything new around this issue.

 

Thank you for your patience!

same issue here.

also did not experience it during the alpha, but did in the beta and still do now.

similarily, the stuttering double-vision when entering a stationary gun, but surprisingly, this seems to be fixed now for me, but not for others. but this is another topic.

 

really dont wanna suddenly need to change my name ive been using since bfbc2, ie. 8+ (?) years...

 

hope this gets fixed really soon as it is also heavily impacting the game because due to not being able to chat, one neither can issue squad requests alla NEED AMMO & NEED MEDIC - these are posted in the chat as well and due to this issue in our case they are not, hence we cannot request medics and supports. Confused

chat wont work in battlefield 5

★★★★ Novice

The chat isn't working in battlefield 5 for some people, I can type but when I hit enter nothing shows up and no one sees it.  I'm not sure if its because of the chat filter having a problem with my username since it has a problem with almost anything or bugged for some other reason and when I submitted a bug report to EA they just immediately closed the case.
