I hadn't played in a while until today. At first I didn't notice anything at all. Played a couple of missions and figured everything was normal. Then, on the third mission, a teammate was running for his life but he was running away from me, so I went to tell him to turn around and I'd cover him.

No chat.

I thought, WTF?! I haven't even played lately. How'd I get a chat ban?

Turns out it wasn't me:

Wow. Just fucking wow.
No other game but Russian based games are doing this shit. They're afraid if they allow anybody to shit talk Russia and support Ukraine the Russian government will shut them down. They would too. That's why only the Russian games are doing this bullshit.
