Rainbow Six Siege Hands Out Instant Bans to Players Typing Slurs

Rainbow Six Siege Hands Out Instant Bans to Players Typing Slurs

Toxicity and abusive language is a problem that nearly every large multiplayer game where players communicate with each other faces, and Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege is no exception.

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). If the player is caught using toxic speech a second time, they get a second ban, this one lasting two hours. Three or more offenses and the player will be investigated directly with the possibility of a permanent ban. The game's code of conduct clearly warns players that "any language or content deemed illegal, dangerous, threatening, abusive, obscene, vulgar, defamatory, hateful, racist, sexist, ethically offensive or constituting harassment" will result in "disciplinary action".

One of the big problems with any online game is not the difficulty of learning the ropes and getting good enough to compete but putting up with the often toxic attitudes of other players.

Back in April of this year, Ubisoft made it known that it was well aware of the rampant toxicity that was plaguing Rainbow Six Siege while also vowing that it was implementing measures to curtail it. It stated at the time a desire to cut down on racial and homophobic slurs in the game. "We have been working on some short-term changes that will quickly have an impact, such as chat improvements, and team kill tracking". It now has an estimated 35 million players.
