Rocket League [official site] players will face automatic bans if they use certain words in chat under new anti-harassment rules introduced this week. Developer Psyonix has come up with a list of 20 words, including racial slurs, that players will be punished for using, and plan to expand the list in future.
Under the ‘Language Ban’ system, each word on the list (which is secret) will have a different threshold for punishment. Some you might get away with using once or twice, but you won’t be so lucky with others. And if you’re a repeat offender you’ll receive a permanent ban from the game. It’s all automated, and based on whether the words in question show up on in-game reports you make about other players (or other players make about you).
