It looks like Ubisoft has upped the ante on hate speech in Rainbow Six Siege. Toxic text chat involving racial slurs, homophobic comments, and the like will get you an instant ban now. According to PC Gamer, the chat will be seen by all, but you're instantly banned from playing any portion of the game for 27 minutes on the first offense, 2 hours for the 2nd, and an additional 2 hours for the third with a formal investigation into a possible permanent ban. And they mean all portions of the game - not even terrorist hunt is available during a ban, unlike the team kill sit out.

This just went into effect the last week. It shouldn't impact any of us because the guidelines against that kind of speech are the same here.

Yeah I saw a bunch the other night trying to get people to type into chat certain phrases to get players banned. One was "What do the British call cigarettes?" I guess if you type the answer "fag", you get banned.

What is really funny about all of this, the toxic players are the ones complaining.

We actually had guys get banned in our BF4 server for toxic chat and then asked to be unbanned. It was funny back then too!
