People who can’t play nicely with others in Rainbow Six Siege, your time is up. Developer Ubisoft has confirmed that, starting now, players busted for using “racial and homophobic slurs, or hate speech” will be issued with temporary or even permanent bans for repeat offenders, and so what? It’s just a game, bro. Go find a new one, get banned from that too, and then maybe think about things.
As community manager Craig Robinson explains on Reddit, the new zero-tolerance policy includes real consequences for “any language or content deemed illegal, dangerous, threatening, abusive, obscene, vulgar, defamatory, hateful, racist, sexist, ethically offensive or constituting harassment is forbidden”, so keep that stuff for Tinder. Or, you know, don’t, because this is why nobody wants to date you either. It must seem so obvious now.
“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,” Robinson adds. Oooooh, like maybe one of those special playlists exclusively for edgy teens and other sociopaths so everybody else can have fun without them. Please?
