Sure seems like just that was suggested. Anyway, absolutely not, no one should receive a ban for words. Bans should be for cheaters/hackers not people using spicy language that someone might get offended by. Add in a filtering option that lets people create a list of things they don’t want to see so their game will **** any of those words for them, but under no circumstances should anyone receive a ban just for typing in words in the chat others don’t like.
343 completely disagrees with you - since the “Halo Spartan Code” outlines how this is not allowed, but at least you were willing to bite the bullet on that part. Truth is things have changed a lot online since the early 2000s.
I remember the Wild West days of Xbox Live on Halo 2 and Modern Warfare. It could certainly be annoying at times, but for the most part it was a fun environment. No one worried about losing their account or the ability to play a game they paid money for because they were saying spicy things. But now with many companies deciding that using certain words is banworthy is online gaming really better? When is the last time you went into an online match and people actually talked to each other? Everyone just segregates themselves to an Xbox Live Party Chat or uses a 3rd party chat system on PC like Discord or Teamspeak. There’s no more actually meeting new people and making friends which I did all the time on Live for the OG Xbox and the early 360 years.
