As you may have seen, we have added Mumbility recently to track players who do not join Mumble-required lobbies. We have always had the intention to introduce cool down periods for players who repeatedly do not join Mumble.
 
From today, players who do not join Mumble will have bans applied to their account based on these recently implemented cool downs.

 

Even without these bans, since introducing Mumble tracking, we have noticed more people in Mumble than ever before. Adding these punishments for those who continue to ruin other peoples games by not participating and communicating should further help and improve the quality of these games.

 

Mumble Cooldown

If a player is not in Mumble for the majority of a Mumble-required game, they will enter a cooldown period during which they cannot join Mumble-required lobbies. The punishment levels are tiered so multiple occurrences will result in longer punishment times, but playing multiple (currently 5) consecutive Mumble-required lobbies and joining Mumble in each will lower the punishment level by 1. These bans will only apply to mumble-required lobbies.

Substitutes will also be subject to this new behaviour, although only if they are in the game for at least 5 minutes.

The currently defined punishment periods are as follows, but please note that these are subject to change while we watch and tweak the service (especially in the first few days):

  • Level 0 - 30 minutes
  • Level 1 - 60 minutes
  • Level 2 - 4 hours
  • Level 3 - 12 hours
  • Level 4 - 2 days
  • Level 5+ - 7 days

This may be better explained with an example:

  • Player starts at Mumble punishment level 0
  • Player joins Mumble-required lobby but doesn't join Mumble
  • End of game, player is banned from Mumble-required lobbies for 30 minutes, and Mumble punishment level is increased by 1 (to 1)
  • 30 minutes passes
  • Player joins Mumble-required lobby but doesn't join Mumble
  • End of game, player is banned from Mumble-required lobbies for 1 hour and Mumble punishment level is increased by 1 (to 2)
  • 1 hour passes
  • Player plays 5 Mumble-required lobbies and joins Mumble in each
  • Player punishment level is reduced by 1 (to 1)

The players Mumble cooldown level is present on the Lobby page (for spectators only) and their Profile page.
