I'm a little unclear about this. Are there going to be actual restrictions on players making new accounts, or will it just be as a result of having access to the normal account and being able to unlock restrictions through playing games?

I'm not sure I like the idea of being in a game with someone who has a cap on the number of messages they send.

Yes, it would reduce their ability to rage, but it seems to me like someone who didn't learn anything from their punishment would hit their cap and then be unable to communicate with the rest of the team for the rest of the game. Yeah, they're being punished, but they say useful things sometimes too. I don't like them raging and making the game no fun for anyone, but I also like winning games, and I'm not sure whether them being utterly silent is actually an improvement in that regard.

(I know this is an experiment and I'm sure you've already thought of that, I just wanted to put my opinion out there).


Isn't the opinions of the players most important? This is definitely something which we/they should be worried about. Maybe they can add a word changer which changes specific words from the original to something like "cupcake". Imagine, someone is raging " PIZZA YOU STUPID COMPUTER SON OF A CUPCAKE" I think it would be funny. Ohhhh, or this could be an April fools thing. I got off track.

I read it as a temporary IP ban on new account creation, but who knows *shrug*

So how do us non-toxic players help you test this?

Report toxic PBE players so as to help Lyte gather data of course!

So...time to start being hyper-toxic on the PBE?

This is a cool approach to player behaviour! Do they get identified as toxic before they get sent to the tribunal or is the restricted chat a punishment from the tribunal?

I will make it my duty to be incredibly toxic and see what happens. For science!

Alright, I've a few questions.

- How do you determine who is toxic and who is not? Is it related to tribunal suspensions? Leaver Buster suspensions? Reports?
- As an average and neutral player, will I be concerned with these chat restrictions in any way?

This sounds like an awesome strategy to retain consistency on testing and still push the "It's just the PBE" mindset out the window.

How easily identifiable will the restriction be for players?

Will they receive an in game announcement similar to when you receive a gift or banner from honor? Or will they only be identified in a match, with a chat box message?

I'm guessing this is something that falls in the "we'll be testing multiple different methods" category, but figured I would ask.
