Who would have thought when it comes to ‘Party Chat’!!
League of Legends players were ecstatic when Riot Games introduced the new chat feature with Patch 13.4 because they believed that pleasant conversation and trolling would return to the game. Unfortunately, the new chat feature is also subject to all restrictions, as the community had discovered it.
Riot recently began enacting harsher penalties for AfKs and toxic players, limiting their access to messaging and penalizing them more seriously. Players complained about unfair chat limitations as a consequence.
Players believed that party chat, which was added to the game with Patch 13.4, would at least shield them from conversation limitations and similar penalties. However, it turns out that party chat is just as subject to penalties as team and group chat.
Party Chat can still get you banned
According to a recent post on the official League of Legends subreddit, you might receive a chat restriction if you joke around with your friends or teammates in the group chat and a random player in your game reports you.
Because of the case, players have found the most minimum way to avoid getting chat banned is to not chat at all. Players are gradually abandoning chat because they believe it is best to avoid using the party chat because you never know what might get you blocked.
One player even pointed out on how bad the chat system is when it comes to any chat autoban features in the game.
“The entire system sucks to be honest, as most chat autoban features always do. The fact that you’d get chat restricted for saying something to a friend in game like “yeah my mom just got diagnosed with cancer, I’m bummed,” is just asinine.
In a game where an optional mature language feature already exists, there’s really no need to censor the players actively in game. You can already do that as well by muting someone. It’s just such a waste.”
In any case, it’s best to refrain from using strong language in your group chat because you never know what might get you banned. Nobody truly knows whether this was meant or not.
