For some reason the chat's not working for me at all and I can't send messages anymore. This happening to anyone else?

Do you think it's possible you have been banned from chat?

I'm not sure if they even do that, but I wouldn't know why. It seems like the chat's always a warzone. Is this new? Cause 99% of the playerbase is gonna get banned in the next 5 minutes.

I think they added it a couple of months ago and so far everyone that asked why the chat isn't visible was chat-banned.

In this reply in the thread you already discovered Lux said that chat bans were introduced in the then last update. So it's not really new.

And forgive this snide remark please, but after months (which is far more than 5 minutes) still nowhere near 99% of the playerbase are banned. You were either unlucky or in some way exceptional.

So are chat bans actually a thing or is it a bug? Cause every lobby I get into is nothing but hard-R N-words so I don't understand why I would be if they are. Is there a way to check the rules, cause I thought strong language was allowed since the game contains it already. And can I check my ban time if I am banned?

Rules: https://mordhau.com/forum/topic/14506/mordhau-official-server-rules/#c3

As for the duration: Contact a moderator directly (e.g. Discord or PM in this forum, Reddit or Steam). Even if you assume a bug it would be the best course of action to get clarification.

If I was optimistic then I would assume that the countless toxic players you witnessed will be banned later on. But realistically I doubt it. As I said: You were either unlucky or more hostile than your peers.

Ok I'll try and see if I can find a mod. That seems pessimistic though. Global chat annihilation seems like a bad move to me. This is one of the only games I own where people seem to use the chat, which I imagine comes from the freedom, and I've made tons of friends through it, even with the toxicity. It always seems in good fun to me. But yeah it clearly isn't evenly applied at all because I don't go out of my way to be toxic to randos, while it seems like 100% of players do.

Also the rules are closed so I'm not sure how anyone's expected to know what they are lol

My first game back on after my ban lol what a joke. They either need to own it and ban their whole playerbase, or seriously reevaluate this decision. I hope it's the latter.

The rules are closed because they are not up to discussion. They are pinned to the front page in the General Discussions sub-forum. They are not hard to find if someone was really interested in them. And honestly I don't think that I need to see the rules to assume that throwing around insults and slurs is against them.

I hope for the former to be honest. But I know this won't happen. The way it is now is certainly unfair. They only ban people that were snitched on.

I kinda assumed like everyone I know that since everyone was saying this stuff freely with no repercussions it was ok. Again seems sort of silly that M-rated language wouldn't be allowed in an M-rated game that has a chat filter and tips in load screens that tell you to use it if you're offended. Either way thanks for the info, it's been 27 hours since I noticed I was unable to chat and mods aren't getting back to me as I expected, so idk man. Hope it comes back.
