Default Censorship in China Dota 2 Client


I noticed things like:
RattleSnake
Smoke of Deceit
are written like this in the Chinese Client:
RattleS****
**oke of Deceit
Why so? And I suppose Riki's Smokescreen is written as **okescreen? Are there more censorships like these including the revamped hero Models and Icons?

I didnt know the term "Rattlesnake" appears in dota, I guess its an item.

Umm... maybe they are trying to censor "naked" and "SM" as in Sadomasochism?

... really, its the only explanation I have right now, but trying to find legit reasons for censorship gives me headache.

Reminder:
Please do not use the term "retard", as stated in the sticky.


Anyway, interesting topic. Are there any more censored terms? Is anyone willed to ask in the Chinese section?

Because society's role is to follow the orders of the government. Just like solders - no thinking just do what i told.
And they do not have balls to say no, otherwise panzers will come and **pe them in the ****o***.

It's actually anti-censorship.. They're trying to corrupt the minds of their youth.

Instead of Rattlesnake they make you think of "Rattlefucker"

instead of Batrider they want you to imagine "Batfucker"

That's what all the **** are meant to accomplish

From what I understand, "Bat***er" is written as such due to the Chinese letter 日/"Ri" being a word used online to express anger (think "fuck") despite being a perfectly acceptable word in real life (I believe it means "day")

I assume Nake and SM are in the same boat.

Also I imagine it's broadcasted in English so westerners can watch too, even if they don't understand the commentary.

I am next to sure that the only thing they achieve with this is if there is a person who naturally wouldn't think of RattlesNAKE, now it will. Censorship that keeps the slang active.
