Treyarch is merely asking that everyone play nice together. …but when it comes to Call of Duty , that certainly seems like a tall order, doesn't it?
Well known for generating all sorts of caustic and even downright insulting and disgusting behavior when playing online, the world's biggest video game franchise isn't really about "playing nice together." Hell, the entire premise involves running around shooting each other.
But if you're one of those nasty players and you think you can get away with being a total a-hole, you might be in for a surprise. The developer has detailed the myriad of ways you could get booted from the Black Ops II multiplayer. This involves the obvious (hacking, boosting, etc.) along with a few more ambitious rules, such as- "Any user who is found to use aggressive, offensive, derogatory or racially charged language is subject to penalty."
Temporary bans range from two days to two weeks depending on the severity of the infraction, while permanent bans are possible if you just can't stop yourself from being a colossal prick. You might even get in trouble for creating what is deemed an "offensive, racist or sexually explicit Emblem." I get the feeling some of the casuals who live and breathe CoD and scream at people in forums with bad grammar, a lot of capital letters, and a ton of exclamation points could be in trouble…
