Ubisoft has just upped the ante in their fight against what it labels toxic behavior. Players are now receiving instant, automated bans for using racial slurs and other offensive language. One user took to twitter to complain about his ban for saying the word 'nibba' in text chat: Source: twitter The automated ban kicks in instantly once a forbidden word or phrase is uttered, disconnecting the offending player from their current match and preventing them from playing any game mode, even custom games, for 27 minutes. Second and third offenses increase the banned time to 2 hours. Additional offenses trigger an official investigation into the account and could lead to a permanent ban.

It remains to be seen how much these new bans will actually affect toxic language and behavior on streams, but it should be a clear sign that the platform is not willing to let … [Read more...] about Twitch is cracking down on high-profile streamers using inappropriate language
