@mbun said in Rainbow Six Siege players who use slurs are now getting instantly banned:
This feels so far off from the original point of the conversation as it is...
It is way off the point yes but as I said, so is twitch and youtube copyright. These are all automated services. I'm just making sure you're aware of that. The vast majority of things you use every single day is an automated service. So yes, google maps has nothing to do with ban on Rainbow Six Siege, the same way automated copyright services don't either.
Article makes it hard to tell if you're banned during the period of their investigation or not, and if you are then that means you're unable to play until "they get to your case" which could take ages, even if you didn't do anything wrong.
I would say you're absolutely banned.
Heck, I remember recently seeing the thread of someone on this very forum complaining about something on Twitch going wrong recently and their account keeps getting randomly banned. Least that seems very rare now, but the more these systems get used, the more people who will have to deal with that kind of stuff, and it is always the user who gets screwed over and has to work to get their account back. That kind of tedious stuff should always be on the people getting paid to help run and manage the game and it's community as this is their job, so excuse me if I don't sympathize at all with:
You're looking at this constantly as if the vast majority of people are affected. It's a minority of people and yes it's an inconvenience but what you're asking for is essentially impossible. The number of users on twitch must be insane right now. You cannot expect them to actually have so much staff to check on dodgy accounts. On top of that, the actual work would just get worse. Sure you can say don't do it if you don't like it but these are people, you get demotivated by doing the same thing everyday. However with an actual good system in place, they're far more equipped to deal with the number of cases that actually involve a human.
...to maintain a good experience for the user of the product. A user who has already paid to play your game or whatever and shouldn't have to give up their precious free time to deal with the back end of everything themselves just because the people running said product want to save money hiring less real people by automating a large portion of the process.
Sure and as a user I don't want to be in an environment that's hostile, racist and homophobic either, those people have paid for the game too. Why should we have to wait for someone who's clearly like that to get banned. How will we even know if they are. With this system in place, I can see instantly, that person has been removed from the game, making my experience a whole lot better.
Feel free to respond, but starting to feel like we're just not going to agree on this, so maybe the conversation is better not continued. I'm all for bringing down toxicity in games online, but not at the expense of the players. It has always been annoying even just having games that use aggressive chat filters that you have to carefully type around, even when just referring to a weapon in the game like a "bastard sword", but when you open those kinds of filters up to vocal input with bannable consequences behind them, you're really smashing open the can of worms big time.
I can honestly say I've never in my life had to be careful about what I type on a game chat.
