In violation of Rainbow Six Siege Code of Conduct, bans will be handed out to the users whomsoever breaches the code. Robinson official statement reads “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.”
How will it work in the system and application of it, Robinson wrote: “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.”
“Any language or content deemed illegal, dangerous, threatening, abusive, obscene, vulgar, defamatory, hateful, racist, sexist, ethically offensive or constituting harassment is forbidden.”
In the competitive era of games, Robinson completely understands the passion of the players where trash talks and abusive language does take place during the game course of time.”We are expecting people not to take it too far with slurs and hate speech,”
Robinson also stated on the upcoming plans and releases that will take place with the course of time, although considers this as a first step towards managing toxicity in Rainbow Six Siege.
