Valve upgrade Team Fortress 2 to handle bots and chat abuse
Like Valve did just recently with CS: GO and Dota 2, they’ve presented brand-new alternatives in Team Fortress 2 to assist handle community concerns and bots. TF2 has sadly been left on life support for a long time now, despite the fact that it is among the longest running shooters readily available on PC.
In Team Fortress 2, this wasn’t just the typical issues of having a huge neighborhood and having some toxic behaviours. They have actually been under attack by bots gushing racism, sexist, homophobic and all sorts of diverse hate-speech that made TF2 a pretty dreadful place. It took Valve a while to do anything, as it had been an issue for several months.
Yesterday however, Valve released an update which limits “certain” brand-new accounts from using the chat in main matchmaking and they stated work is ‘ongoing’ to handle new and totally free accounts being utilized for “abusive purposes”. They also included two new options, “Enable text chat” and “Enable voice chat” in Advanced Options to disable them so you can play in peace.
The Report Gamer menu was also expanded to include more information “so players can make informed decisions about who they’re reporting” and they fixed a couple of other concerns.
