Champions Online: Filters in games

Posted on: October 20, 2009

This article on the champions online filter is a good read.

I usually keep the filter on in most of the games I play as I’m not interested in hearing people curse in games, even if I swear a bit in real life. I generally think its a bad idea in such a mixed environment.

In wizard 101 and free realms where the filter is very very heavy to look out for the many younger players, the filter can not be turned off. Usually when you turn off the filter, you yourself can then hear swears, in games like free realms, they do not want to allow this.

I’m sure with a bit more work, Champions Online will end up with a lotro-type filter.

Rather than when the writer of the article was playing when they filtered across many languages rather than just the one you are currently speaking.
