    You can't use the words "White man", "Nazi", "dic" as this video shows. What do you guys think of this?
    I think this is bull to be honest. They should change the guns to bubble blowers at this rate.
    Edit: Sorry, the other two censored words were seen in a different video searched in YT.

    So Nazi is censored in a WW2 game. Ok, highly logical behavior.

    I bet it will only encourage the term to become derogatory.

    If there is someone who only writes bullshit you should be able to block him and thats it, nobody needs filter.

    That's just silly and dumb to censor white man, lol. And "Nazi" being censored in a fucking WW2 game is just dumb. Are we going to censor "Soviet" next?

    Soon enough they will censor "anything related to battle or wars because the might think it's offensive for people around it.

    Can't wait for the new iteration of Kaboomfield: Pew Pew Swoosh Battle. I couldn't be more excited.

    I don't care how silly their excuse is, I actually want to know their thought process on this.

    It's almost like EA has always been shit and it took some people buying five or six Battlefield games plus DLC to finally wake up to that fact.

    Looking at other sites, their censorship is about as silly as SMT Dx2's censorship.

    I've been called words from all people, frankly I'd say them but what good or difference does it make and until I jokingly started calling myself those words when I made a mistakes or out of the blue just to get it out that it stopped hurting or being offensive when someone called me one of those words. I am what I choose to call myself. Unless I'm sentenced by a judge- "Well shit, your honor, I'm a pirate. I'm sorry."

    I wonder if "NSDAP", "Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei", or "National Socialist German Workers' Party" is censored. :P

    From what I read, you can't even say "sucks". Sheesh, come on, do they know this game is rated m?
