  • Swearing and Cussing in UT2007

    Hmmm - from what I could hear the bots appear to have an "extended vocabulary" from what they had in UT2004.

    Please Epic, could you ensure that there is a client and a serverside option to remove those phrases.

    If you're running a server with 'no swearing' as one of the rules then having the bots effing and blinding isn't going to help. That rule does appear to help create a nicer atmosphere to play in for many people.

    Yes - I know it's a rated game and blah blah blah not kids blah blah - heard it all before.

    Im sure there will be an option to disable the 'mature taunts'. Isn't there already one in UT2k4?


    • #3
      Yeah there is. And the game is a mature title. i mean the only thing i heard was shit and damn. What i dont get is why would you wanna turn it off? Is it like to strong for people's virgin ears? What i'm trying to say is if people would even buy it for there kid's or what ever they can read the back of the box. If ut2007 has voip like ut2004 the bot's cursing is the least of your worrie's. just my thought's

        I heard, uh, "feck" as the Darkwalkers came by.


        • #5
          I think that only a client side would be the best option. I don't think you should be able to prevent other people from hearing them if they want to (server side option).

            On a server where you have a no-swearing rule and the players hear swearing they're likely to swear. Hense the option of a serverside switch off in the same way you have the option for serverside taunts off in UT2004 (not that it seems to work).

              Server side should be an option. Plus, if the bots are dropping F-bombs (and I hope NOT) it will only encourage those who tend to use in-game text chat and VoIP as their own personal verbal toilet even more.


              • #8
                anti-swearing is a big joke imo, even in UT2004, there are servers with a text chat filter where players can still do voice taunts all the time like "Suck on this" "die bitch" and you know the rest

                What you're saying is that people will be encouraged to swear if they hear it, come on now

                idd I heard it all before
                and yes it's a mature title
                and yes you blow up people, which means you can allow extreme mayhem but swearing is out of the question, this sounds like too much hypocrisy to me, this is not TV

                just my $0.02

                    I love how you think it's perfectly acceptable to blow people to pieces with rockets and riddle their bodies with bullets but God help you if theres SWEARING! HOW VULGAR! BAN THIS FILTH!

                      Yeah thats why I have never understood this censoring language crap.


                      • #12
                        And even more so... by disabling swearing serverside how is that going to stop the player from swearing on 1000+ other servers.
                        This will only make the server admin in question happy so he can say look I have a cussingfree server.

                        Yes for a client option, so you can turn it off for your kids (and let them slaughter cussfree)
                        No for a serverside option which is pointless


                        • #13
                          A serverside option isnt needed. The game is rated M for a reason. If you have to worry azbout johnny 12 year old in your server and the bots are sayying F*CK then that is a problem of his parents buying the game and letting him play it. I personally have all taunts diabled because i find them really annoying and distracting. Serverside controls are nothing more than another way a mserver admin can make the game less fun. For the first few months of 2k7 i will have taunts on and i will be damned if some self righteous server admin will tell me i cant have a bot say F*CK or SH*T or DAMN. It is MY choice to listen to the bots. Not some server admins.

                            Everytime someone appeals to a ban, we get the same question. People clearly dont understand why we enforce these rules untill they have actually played a game at our servers. And since I can fully understand a lot of you wont actually do that to see it with your own eyes, lemme grab a quote from one of those ban appeal threads.

                            I also read the rules and I wonder though why there's non-swearing rule on this server. i've heard about 'family server' but i don't agree with it since it's a violent game in which no children (that can't handle swearing) should be allowed (that's my idea of it).
                            Example (this happens just a few minutes ago):

                              I'm encouraging bots swearing. People will always swear, no matter what. And what'd be cooler than a bot replying to Johnny-12-year-old's 'F*ck you!' with 'Well, f*ck you too!'
