Rainbow Six Siege Battles Toxic Chat

In a post on reddit, Ubisoft announces plans to detoxify the chat in Rainbow Six Siege with a stronger ban policy (thanks VG247). They call this a "first step" to manage toxic chat, and say they have more plans for this to reveal down the road. Here's word on the type of discipline overactive keyboard warriors can expect:

Starting next week, we will be implementing an improvement on the system we have been using to ban players that use racial and homophobic slurs, or hate speech, in game. The bans for this will fall within the following durations, depending on severity:

  • 2 Days
  • 7 Days
  • 15 Days
  • Permanent

We will be tracking the frequency at which language that violates the Code of Conduct is used by individual players, and will apply the appropriate ban on a case-by-case basis.

The type of language we will be taking action against is outlined in the following section of the Code of Conduct:

“Any language or content deemed illegal, dangerous, threatening, abusive, obscene, vulgar, defamatory, hateful, racist, sexist, ethically offensive or constituting harassment is forbidden.”

Players that receive a ban for toxicity will receive a pop-up that states their ban was the result of toxic behavior. A global message will also be displayed, similar to the current global broadcasts for cheating. It will read:

"Username has been banned for toxicity."

This is our first step towards managing toxicity in Rainbow Six Siege, and we will have more information to share about our other plans at a later date.
