    Crashing games through chat spam has landed Rainbow Six Seige players with bans.

    After resolving the Clash over shields, Ubisoft has turned its eye towards more text-based troubles. We’ve all seen chat boxes flood with obscenities and toxic memes. But until recently, an exploit in Rainbow Six Siege meant some players were able to seriously disrupt matches through their keyboard.

    Flooding chat with symbols (dollar signs, punctuation) could cause an opponent’s game to lag or even crash. Needless to say, this wreaked havoc across ranked matchmaking.
