    I noticed things like:
    Smoke of Deceit
    are written like this in the Chinese Client:
    **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.

    Because words like ''smoke'' and ''snake'' are violent and make you do bad stuff

    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***.
