L2D has several chat channels to help keep chat organized. Chat Mods are responsible for moderating and enforcing chat rules. If they tell you not to do something, listen to them. They can mute with or without warning. As such, players should read and follow the rules to avoid being muted.
There are also auto-mutes which trigger for certain chat offenses. Automatic mutes are very strict and mute all forms of communication (chat, private messages, signs, books, renaming items, etc). The more auto-mutes a player receives, the longer the mute will last.
WarningChat Mods can mute without warning for breaking chat rules. Some mutes are implemented automatically.
Please keep chat in the relevant channels. Mistakes happen where players accidentally use the wrong channel and we’re fine with that, but stop misusing a channel when asked or you may be hit with a mute. Quick chat commands can be used to talk in a channel without having to switch your primary channel.
