Abusing on Chat & Voice is perhaps the most toxic thing about playing Online Games. There is so much negativity when teammates or opponents start rubbish talking, which results in a bad temper. Furthermore, this is one major problem for many game developers, because it is not much you can do to avoid it. Players can report others, but this takes time, and the damage to others in-game has already been done.

This also affects communication, which results in bad teamwork. Valve is now working on their upcoming unique system, which will block in-game abuse pretty quickly in CS-GO. This system will be similar to the older ones, but automated actions will be taken in this system. Firstly, players who get more abuse reports than others will be first given a warning. Afterward, if their reports kept increasing, they will be automatically muted by all other players. Furthermore, these punished players will also be muted in all other matches. They can be unmuted by others if they want, however by default they will be muted. Other players in the same team will know that this person is muted, hence punished. Lastly, In order to get unmuted, punished players will have to act normal till they earn enough XP to remove the penalty. This way of getting unmuted will civilize abusive players.

“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,” Valve said.

As I said, this will all be automated, and thus it’ll be accurate and faster. Various Algorithms will be made to implement this idea. Players reported will get a specific muted time depending on the number of reports. Valve also recommends everyone to report abusive players and ignore them.
