Please allow plurals of all of your spells as "white" text rather than yellow text.

Example:
"I'll hit once you've cast your Bladestorms."

Please rename plants or allow verbatim plant names.

Examples:
"Queen Crape Myrtle"
"Purple Grapes of Wrath"

Thanks!

Also add these words to the whitelist:

  • crit (small possibility of abuse, I admit)
  • underpowered
  • irrelevant
  • relatively
  • inks
  • TCs

can you also add the word "Glitched" or "Glictching"

I know glitch is in the filter but it's weird if you say "my game is glitch" instead of "my game is glitching"

I'd also like the word "hilarious" put into the white words.

Adding a few more.

That would make it easier for me to speak with Text Chatters.

I also have a few other requests that I don't see being added in the future, due to this being the U.S. version. Oh well.

Best of luck!

As well as the words "lag", "lagged" and "lagging".

Word filters in games all have inherent problems when trying to filter words within words. Grapes and Glasses are very good examples. They both contain words that should be filtered even though they are completely non-offensive words in themselves.

You're right, however W101 certainly does have the capability to unfilter words containing filtered text. As an example, type "Fire" into a chat window. The singular letter, "F" is filtered (red), but switches to white text when the entire word is entered. Words specifically describing game content, such as cards or plants, should be white-listed. No additional coding seems necessary; just add them to the white list.

Not only do they need to allow more words but they also need to filter more words.
