Ubisoft cracks down on Rainbow Six: Siege vocal abuse

Ubisoft cracks down on Rainbow Six: Siege vocal abuse

Siege will be tracking the frequency with which racial, homophobic and similar derogatory terms are used by individual players, with player bans being issued ranging from two days to life, dependent on the given case. If someone does get banned, everyone else will have the tiny little joy of seeing "Username has been banned for toxicity." pop up in the game's messages.

From this week, Rainbow Six Siege is launching improvements to its chat toxicity ban system, which bans players who use "racial and homophobic slurs, or hate speech" while they're playing the game. The bans for this will fall within the following durations, depending on severity. With it, there will be a slightly updated report system that will reflect these upcoming changes.

The NFL also announced who will be replacing the two long-time refs: Shawn Hochuli (Ed's son) and Alex Kemp . He is an attorney, and between work at his firm and on the field Hochuli put in 100 hours a week on the job.

This is also now implemented in the game's code of conduct, and as such, prohibited language involves remarks that are deemed illegal, dangerous, threatening, abusive, obscene, vulgar, defamatory, hateful, racist, sexist, ethnically offensive or constituting harassment. They will certainly let you know that you have been banned due to toxicity.

The developers behind Rainbow Six Siege have long had prohibitive language against specific kinds of behavior in-game, including a section listing "forbidden conduct". Both of the new operators are biohazards specialists, for which it should be the most effective against the infected packs in the new game mode. The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions are subject to Microsoft's and Sony's online code of conduct, and ban users at their own discretion. How do you feel about Ubisoft's new zero tolerance system?
