Where Rainbow Six Siege code of conduct has been updated
with a new 'Automated Temporary Banning System' - which we're hoping that internally Ubisoft refer to it as the ATBS 5000. The system has been implemented to flag and temporarily ban players using offensive or abusive language.
With the full breakdown as follows:
In the idea to make the Game a welcoming community space for challenges, Ubisoft has decided to launch an automated temporary banning system in respect to Offensive Language or Behavior, Threats and Harassment.
This system will automatically temporary ban players from the Game when they use abusive words in the in-Game chat. These temporary bans will be implemented as follows:
- First offense: 30 minutes temporary ban
- Second offense: 2 hours temporary ban
- Third Offense: 2 hours temporary ban
- After three offenses: an investigation will be conducted and may lead to a permanent ban (maximum penalty)
Which means the ATBS 5000 will defer all major permanent ban decisions to an investigation team - probably made up of humans. Naturally in the year 2018 this system, which makes total sense for a controlled online experience, caused a few people to take offense to not being able to be offensive - as highlighted in this Twitter thread
. With Rainbow Six Siege a major force in the esports scene, Ubisoft has every right to implement measures such as this.
