Among Us has received a new, critical update, whose main task was to improve the safety of players. It was about defending against massive spam attacks and cheaters that spoil the gameplay.
Today it is known that the update also affected several other, smaller features and tricks that players used.
What happens when someone sets an invisible nickname?
Players have been setting up invisible names for several weeks. It was not too difficult and required the use of special characters. InnerSloth apparently noticed the problem and added these nicknames to the inappropriate list.
At this point, whenever someone sets a custom character, they’ll see a notification with an inappropriate name. This means, of course, that you cannot play.
It won’t matter to most players. It was always “cool” for a while and did not affect the outcome of the game. However, it was an interesting way to stand out from everyone else, which is why many people used it.
Interestingly, the developers clearly saw more logic in this and it was unofficially announced that one day there will be support for “creating more interesting player names”. So you can expect support for additional dictionaries, characters etc.
Nicki was extremely important in many productions. Especially in mobile games. The “Emojis & amp; Fonts Keyboard” plugin on Android was used most often. It’s hard to say when the developers decide to deal with this issue more, it may be a period of several weeks, but also months.
