Valve will ban Toxic players for abusing Voice/text Chat!

So you come from your work, or after studying to spend a few hours in CSGO to refresh yourself, you go into a competitive match, and you are stuck with toxic players for next 40-50 minutes, just imagine how some toxic players ruined the time you took out to play CSGO and refresh yourself, soon this might not be the case, as Valve has done something.

Many players face the issue of toxicity in CS:GO which ruins the experience of players, we all have faced toxic people in our matches, and community has been demanding for an in-game feature to punish toxic players, and now finally after many years Valve has announced that it will be taking action against such players who misuse voice/text chat.

According to Valve:

SO WE’VE BEEN WORKING ON A NEW SYSTEM THAT WILL WORK MORE PRECISELY. WHEN THE NEW SYSTEM IS FULLY DEPLOYED, PLAYERS WILL RECEIVE A WARNING IF THEY RECEIVE SIGNIFICANTLY MORE ABUSE REPORTS THAN OTHER PLAYERS.IF THEY IGNORE THAT FEEDBACK AND CONTINUE TO RECEIVE ABUSE REPORTS, THEY’LL RECEIVE A PENALTY: THEY WILL BE MUTED BY ALL OTHER PLAYERS BY DEFAULT. THIS ‘DEFAULT MUTE’ STATE WILL REMAIN UNTIL THE PLAYER EARNS ENOUGH XP TO REMOVE THE PENALTY, BUT OTHER PLAYERS CAN CHOOSE TO MANUALLY UNMUTE THE USER (AS THEY WOULD ANY OTHER MUTED PLAYER).BECAUSE THE NEW SYSTEM IS DRIVEN BY REPORTS, IT LETS PLAYERS ESTABLISH THEIR OWN STANDARDS FOR COMMUNICATION AND ENSURE THAT THEIR FELLOW PLAYERS RECEIVE ANONYMOUS FEEDBACK WHEN THEY’RE OUT OF LINE.WE’VE ALREADY STARTED TRACKING PLAYERS’ REPORTS WITH THE NEW SYSTEM, AND YOU CAN HELP US BY GETTING INTO THE HABIT OF REPORTING ABUSIVE PLAYERS FOR ‘ABUSIVE COMMUNICATIONS OR PROFILE’ WHEN YOU COME ACROSS THEM. NOTE THAT REPORTS ARE WEIGHTED HIGHER FOR PLAYERS THAT PLAY MORE AND/OR REPORT LESS FREQUENTLY, SO ACCOUNTS THAT GENERATE NO XP AND/OR SPAM REPORTS WILL HAVE LITTLE TO NO IMPACT.

Although this raises concerns too, for players who might get mass reported and maybe innocent, only time will tell, how this system goes, but its good that Valve has finally taken a step in the right direction.
