Can't use chat in battlefield 5

Re: Chat issues (PC)

★★★★ Novice

this is the topic on the nicknames being considered profane by the chat filter because they were chosen before the filter had been introduced, occuring independently of the platform, hence many people are unable to chat because anything they type is automatically filtered due to their nickname being blocked.

 

the issue is still present, just tried to change my nickname back to necrophyte and i still cannot.

Thank you for the call out @necropxhyte 

 

For PC users this is still being looked into and the current workaround is to change your Origin ID if the current one you have does not allow the chat.

Hi Blueberry, 

I still cant type in the chat at all. Not even orders, requests or anything with the Q button (PC gamer). 

I did not have these issues with BF4, 3 or 1

 

Please fix it because its very annoying..


I cant give you more details because i dont know what specific details other then: 

1. It doesnt work

2. not even after reinstalling the game

3. Requesting orders or such doesnt work as well. 

4. PC game version.

 

With Kind Regards,

Re: Gameplay options not working

Sorry for the long delay! I've been busy playing, but I can see this thread is STILL not dead... Yes, I can now write in the game under then name Rabnozo as the **** Filter implented in BF V thinks my name Rabonzo is split up into Rabon (Which apparently means dong in spanish slang) and zo instead of looking at it as a whole... So, in other news, we have to take into account any common language in the world + slang when making names now. 2½h of support to figure this out, by a random chance I googled when I tried to change my name back to Rabonzo and it kept saying it was a no-no word, untill I figured out it was Rabon that was the issue, Rabo is fine, but then I would have bozo in the end, which is not fine...

All in all, my workaround works with the "wrong name"

I have the same problem. I try to change the key to open the chat window, but when I press enter, only close the windows, but don't send the message. And happens to me in two different computers... :/
