A new system has apparently been implemented in Rainbow Six Siege by Ubisoft that will automatically ban players who use toxic language in the game. According to reports, dozens of players have received automatic instant bans after they used “toxic language” like a homophobic or racist slur in text chat. And indeed, Ubisoft has confirmed that a new auto-banning system has gone live in Rainbox Six Siege.
Ubisoft says that this new system will automatically ban players who use this kind of language in the game. The bans initially last for 27 minutes the first time and players are prevented from playing any part of the game, including custom games.
The duration is increased to two hours for the second and third times. An official investigation is conducted after the third time which could lead to a permanent ban for the account as cited in the game’s Code of Conduct.
Ubisoft had earlier revealed this year that its team was creating an automated system which would censor text chat in the game based on a chat filter list.
“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,” it said back then.
