I've played this game since closed beta, I use game chat all the time, and I've never once been chat banned.  I can't imagine why we've had different experiences.

CAPTURE A!!!

From a ship sailing the long circle route to C.

That creates a problem as the other teammates collide with each other trying to get out of spawn.

CHAT? HA...

I get banned from time to time. Its not a problem. Club me often enough with bans it does not hurt anymore.

I still reserve the right to exercise my freedom of speech in chat. Its unfortuante that the millenials have actually gotten old enough to be trained on what a Admin Ban server screen function is now and then. Such thin skins. From time to time I have admined online gamers and very carefully banned just the ones that required it while letting alot of the rest go on.

IF they were online 20 years ago with the storm of trash talking, they would have been crying and butthurt so bad....

Nono   YOU get banned from chat. Its not for "no reason" its because you behave poorly.    For everyone else but those who abuse chat  its is a perfectly fine and useful thing.

Gaming used to be fun, now every game has automated right-click reporting.

Now my hobby is full of weak little manbabies. I guess it's just a reflection of the world now. Lots of low-test boys and fragile boomers gaming from their safe spaces.

Don't be an [edited]in chat - all fixed.  I can be salty in chat and have 0 (ZERO, nada, zilch) chat bans so that is ALL on YOU.

That's why it's called banter.

If there were no game chat I'd probably not even play the game anymore as I usually just play it to read the funny things people say in chat.

thank you all for your kind words and support, but i think it has come down to quote by Arclyte  "my hobby is full of weak little manbabies"

none of the language i used was abusive or even swearing, it was simply banter.

I think wsg needs to SHOW you the evidence  e.g screen shot of what you said, which caused the ban for the first place. would save me having to write this entire article.

I think if you ask for that information, WG will give it to you.

freedom of speech does not apply to private medians fyi.

that right protects you from government censorship, on here you agree to abide by the rules as stated in the EULA, I suggest you read it and educate yourself.

"I reserve the right to be horrible to anyone I want to!  Hang on, why are you chat banning me?!  It's totally unacceptable that there are consequences for my actions!  I'm off to the forums to complain about how other people have thin skins..."

Just turn chat off. This is not a community open to gamer talk or amusing conversation. You basically lose nothing from turning chat off. Pretend your teammates are bots. It's not just thin skinned or pretentious people. Reporting to chat ban someone appears to be a mini game within the game. 

If you want social gaming play Squad. 

Chat is just a game of baiting others into replying with something you can report. Unless you can treat it like Sunday school. It is best to just not engage in banter. Save it for ranked when you may actually communicate with someone. When you die go back to Port or step away till it's over and you get your ship back.

A. You were using words that are flagged and you got auto banned by the system (since it's a 2 week ban, unlikely).

B. You got reported by others for XYZ (more likely, as 2 week ban is of higher tier offence than 24 hour ban).

C. Both options above starts with 'You'.

Same here, less interaction between players.

Speaking of educating yourself:

It’s “private media,” or a “private medium.”

FYI.

Come on - you wanna get me a forum ban, don’t you???

The irony of a canadian lecturing others about free speech.

Did you make that post from one of Trudeau's internment camps or did he give you permission to use your PC at home?

we dont  discuss that pariah.

2 weeks means it was a manual ban as in it was chat that a WG employee sat down and read and not an automated ban. It most likely must have been pretty egregious to get 2 weeks applied. It is possible to have in game banter while not getting banned as I'm proof of this. Banter doesn't require breaking the eula.
