Rocket League Website
shares some statistics after running their language
ban system for a full year. Here's word on how they've been taking the piss out
of potty mouths:
It’s been just over a year
since we first introduced the Language Ban system to Rocket League, which
means: Happy Belated Birthday, ‘Thor.’ (And yes, that IS what we call it
In celebration of that birthday, we thought it useful to share some quick stats
regarding how the system limits toxicity and player harassment on an ongoing
basis. That means that since activating
the system on August 2, 2017, ‘Thor’ has...
- Levied over 520,000 bans on more than
- Of these accounts, 66% were banned once,
and 34% were banned multiple times (including both Game and Chat
- 94.4% of players banned once have returned
to online play after the ban was served
- 66% of all bans are Game Bans; 34%
are Chat Bans, which were introduced earlier this year
- All of the bans back-to-back accumulate to over
2,700 years, 142,000 weeks, or more than 86,210,000,000
We’re still working on evolving this system as we strive to keep Rocket
League a fun, all-ages-friendly environment. That will include adding real-time
language filtering that we believe will make an appearance later this year.
We'll keep you updated when we have more to share!
