Ubisoft are taking a stand with Rainbow Six Siege

Ubisoft is routinely banning individuals who use racist and homophobic slurs in Rainbow Six and a few players are complaining it’s not truthful.

One of the massive issues with any on-line Game just isn’t the problem of studying the ropes and getting adequate to compete however placing up with the usually poisonous attitudes of different players.

Rainbow Six Siege has by no means been famous as being notably dangerous in that respect however Ubisoft has taken the step to create a system that routinely bans anybody using racist or homophobic slurs in textual content chat.

According to PC Gamer the bans started over the weekend and last for 27 minutes on your first offence, increasing to two hours for repeated infractions.

If anyone gets caught for a third time an official investigation into the player’s account is launched by human staff and a permanent ban can result.

Already there are reports of players taunting others into saying something offensive in order to get them banned, with one example tweeted to Ubisoft involving a player supposedly asking another what the British slang for cigarette is.

Other players have complained of being ‘tricked’ into answering a question about the nickname for racoons, but Ubisoft are having none of it.

According to Ubisoft, this is one of several initiatives meant to clean up the community, including muting text chat and enhanced chat monitoring. Although at the time the latter was meant to simply censor offensive words.

Currently the terms are not removed or hidden in text chat, but the offender still receives an automatic ban anyway.

Despite complaints from a vocal minority the new system seems to be going down well with most players, and that means it’s likely to be picked up by other games that use text chat a lot (which is only really a thing with PC games).
