Rainbow Six Siege Banning Players Who Use Slurs
Hate speech and trash talk have been apart of online gaming since it was a thing, but since yesterday a dozen players have stated they have received a ban for the use of racist homophobic slurs. The first offense is only 27 minutes but by the second ban, it can reach up to 2 hours. If you still haven’t learned the lesson by then and get the 3rd ban it can potentially be permanent.
Ubisoft has been asked about this on twitter and a response was made earlier ” Our team is working on the creation of an automated system that will censor text chat in the game based on a chat filter list. This will replace words that have been identified as offensive and provide players with a notification that their language was found to be unacceptable. We will also be tracking the number of times players trigger this filter and will take action as necessary for players that are intentionally having a negative impact on other player’s gaming experience,”
Some players have praised Ubisoft for making the online gaming community a much safer and friendlier place while other players seem angered to see their friends being caught in the act and banned.
Either way for a big company like Ubisoft to do this it makes it a big deal for a game such as Rainbow Six Siege. Us as gamers should want the online gaming community to be a safe place for all ages and races no matter what.
