Re: Gameplay options not working

@EA_Atic I also cannot type in chat, haven't been able to since I installed BF:V. Hard to imagine why my name would be banned considering there's nothing even remotely profane about it.

 

At the same time, it's funny because of the voiceovers and how profane THEY are. Not that I'm complaining, it's just funny to hear someone yell "I'm f-ing dying here!" while knowing my name is banned for being "profane".

I too cant type in chat either, starting to get really frustrated at the moment. Something as simple as a me typing into a chat box and it not displaying is ridiculous. 

 

I could chat in the BETA but since then havent been able to. My friend was the same, but after last patch (prior to todays patch) it started working for his, but no mine. 

 

What is happening to change this the way it should be?

Which game mode(s) are you unable to chat in? Can you chat if you change your name for a game or two?

I changed my nickname from crap_inhuman to weird_inhuman and now i can chat again. Standard smile

 

I understand that using nicknames like Hit*er and Goebb*ls or something similar are forbidden, but blocking the word "crap" ?

 

Anyway, thanks for helping me finding a solution for my problem !

Cant have 'crap' in your name but we can have "I'm f*@king dying over here" in the audio of the game. Great job EA/Dice

@Trapqer36 i can't even type my name here anymore. wow. The last 2 comments I tried to leave came out blank. Then it started to redirect me saying "this page does not exist".

I'm done with EA, 100%. Uninstalling Origin now.

@EA_Blueberry @EA_Atic 

 

I think I have the same problem with the profanity filter in multiplayer chat in BF5. Works in BF1.

 

The EA chat-support couldn't help me. I did all the suggested steps.

 

Please help. I really don't want to change my nick. I doubt anyone is offended by my nick pip-1914.
