Random, innocent words get filtered out, also it sometimes filters more words than the problem one. It actually makes communicating quite hard in this game sometimes. It also isnt consistent where sometimes it will filters out stuff, and other times it doesnt.

We really need an option to turn off the filtering and to be honest, most of us are older players age wise, this is an older community, do we really need this level of filtering?

If you can provide a list of words that are not offensiv, but get filtered, you can report that to the AOE support, and they will make exceptions for them. Sometimes stuff get filtered, that shouldnt, because between the 2 works is a spacer.
For example " Adolfs Hitler " got censored in early, because it contained the word " shyt ". "adolf-s Hyt-ler "
Yes i need to type it with Y´s because the censoring int he forums is the same and outdated.
