    Offensive/ Non offensive names.

    Hi guys, anyone else here have the issue where their own name is considered offensive and isn't shown in-game? I'd like to have my own surname in-game but the game considers it offensive, any ideas on where I could create a support thread to get it added into the game? Thanks.

    Do you mean that the name is not shown in the online chat or in the game in general? Is your name shown with asterisks instead?

    At the same time, check whether your problem goes away if you disable the profanity filter for the chat which should be found under "Gameplay" in the options menu. (Other guys, feel free to correct me if this isn't correct)
    There's no "I" in "team", but there's a "we" in "weapon".

    Profanity filters applies to names also to avoid other to use them as... well, profanity

    If your name is legal and detected as such, it worth reporting it. It might be nice to take care of that situation (We have one WMD member with same problem with his last name)

    Nothing you can do about it really. Just turn off the filter.
