        The chat as a whole is one huge problem, there's very little bugs, aside from whatever people already mentioned above
        However there's plenty of problems:
        The text keeps disappearing after re-login or bad inet connection
        Tiny limit of text it keeps track of (like what, 50 lines of text?)
        It's near to impossible to chat due to filters.

        Here's some questions:
        * How about we start with the definition of "Inappropriate or offensive words"?
        * What languages system tracks to replace the words?
        * What words are "bad"?
        * Why it doesnt replace the word, but kills the whole sentence?


        Can you answer this one?

          Type in kritika the white knights. That is inappropriate according to filter. I guess when I say the NAME OF THE GAME it thinks I'm calling someone k-nig-hts. Then there is the simple sentence... I already hit it. Clearly I'm referring to a tit. Because if you try to really twist it around....if I hi-t it. I must be talking about the tit I hit.

            I still say filter should just be removed.

            If someone wants to say a "bad" word, they'll find a way to say it using hyphens, periods, symbols, etc. to get around the filter.

              Words that are not "foul" language also can get filtered which can be frustrating.

              As I've wrote numerous times before :
              1. Congratulations, congrats - filtered because the word contain "RATS". Making a congratulating response into foul mouthing players who achieved something great.

              Imagine:
              Congrats on level up! -> I will not use inappropriate words (W. T. F!?)

              2.Using symbols, hyphens and even fullstops can also trigger the filter.
              Example : @_@ sometimes get filtered, OK.Let's go! gets filtered because of no spacing.

              Overall,I find the filter on English language (main language in most games) is absurdly broken and worse on other languages except a few like Korean, Japanese and Chinese. The chat is the only part of Kritika that really ruins the whole experience till something is done about it. We've been waiting for a fix since we 1st started playing (for me, a year + now)

                What surprises me the most is how a game as good as this one would suffer from a problem that most multiplayer games can resolve on day one.

                      In guild, its not easy to chat with other members.

                      Once! A new member joined my guild and old members of guild were chatting and some words got blocked by filter. Newbie member said - "wow! Too much vulgar/inappropriate language". Some common words got blocked. And when he tried chatting about not using bad language in some lines came - "I will not use inappropriate or offensive words." And he said - I didn't say anything wrong. Lmao
                      I said - do not worry. I know how you feel . Lol ;P

                        do we actually have to list every single combination of letters and words that are blocked by the chatfilter? the list would be too long for anyone to read in a reasonable amount of time.

                        also like they mentioned "special characters" in a character name makes the chat completely unavailable

                        I'd say, either let us rename the characters or fix the chat for chars using those letters
                        and for the chat, just add in the option to remove "mature language filter"

                          Anyone can get around the worthless filter by using periods or commas. It's nothing more than a burden. The filter only forces people to use third party apps to chat. The whole chat filter is one big bug. No screenshots required.

                            Haha I've encountered the white knights one a long time ago. I was trying to register my guild name and it just wouldn't work. After some experimentation I narrowed it down to that word, which I've never heard of before my entire life. That's the very reason my guild name has an l instead of an I, all caps.

                              I'm going to talk about the whole chat system in general, not just the filters, and not only on bugs. You can do with this what you will. Here's my input:

                              1) Filter should be completely rebuilt. It's extremely sensitive and unhelpful, and here's why. A lot of word combinations in everyday language will form profanity. You want a non-toxic community? Fair enough. But the way it handles the "vulgar sentence" is to tell the world "hey everyone I just used a vulgar word!" (paraphrasing here). It doesn't tell me what I typed, where I typed, and I just lost a very long reply. And everyone knows it's so inconvenient to type on mobile or tablet. If for example I'm really keen on replying to my guildmate, I would literally have to copy the sentence before posting, then scan every alphabet to look for profanity- some of those words I've never heard of my entire life. Take the word 'knight' for example. Innocent enough, it's the title of the game even. But no, that's censored. Took me so long to narrow it down to that word too.

                              It's much better if you would replace a swear word, and only the swear word, with some ****ing asterisks, so people can just fill in the blanks. PS: those are simply asterisks, not some kind of profanity.

                              2) "XXXXX has acquired YYYYYY from ZZZZZ." Nope. Don't want that. Back in the early days, that sort of thing was less common. But now, everyone's getting something from somewhere, or enhancing their legendaries and ethereals to +11, +12, +13 and so on. It serves no practical purpose and nobody can see the things people actually talk about.

                              3) Chat history shouldn't be erased the moment someone has switched character or exit the app (or even app crash). Save it over the course of a day or two. That way, plus suggestion 2, makes it easier for someone to join in the conversation.

                              4) Time stamping. Let everyone know how long it has been since the last person spoke, so we can judge if it's appropriate to reply to a question asked, say, an hour ago. If the chat history is retained throughout the day, when the person logs in again he might see it.

                              5) The option to reply while the game is paused. Yes, I know you can autoplay while replying, but that's about it. You can't reply in the pause menu, and you can't pause the game while replying. If I'm gonna come up against an episode boss, I don't trust my character to autoplay their way in, so I can't respond to someone even if I wanted to.

                              That's about all I have time to type. I hope this doesn't go too much off topic, if it did I'm sorry and could a moderator please move this post to the appropriate thread (if any)?
