    Just mute who you don't want to hear. It is that simple. We do not need anyone to be the "thought police". In every online game people talk like that. It's not just limited to games where you can play as antebellum southerners.

    The thought police have been notified of your heresy...

    Muting will help a little, but here's hoping the admin tools being built will also aid us, haven't seen the new kick ban in action yet.

    As someone from the deep south (Southern Louisiana) I can assure you that the idiocy displayed is not usual for the average person encountered down here. Even in the 1860's it was not as common as you'd think. The people in this game you find acting this way are the 12-16yo kids who think this is an outlet for that type of talk or behavior.. can even hear them trying not to laugh as they speak while they do their horrible impression of a southern accent.

    They will grow bored pretty quickly and all you can do is ask politely for them to drop the act and you just mute them when they continue. But this is the internet and if your skin is so thin that you can't ignore some child's horrible attempt at being cool then you probably shouldn't play video games online.

    Those making the racist remarks to be fair do not in many cases even sound american let alone southern, I just think people are using it as an excuse.

    Accent wise I always laugh because any time someone does a bad southern accent I picture Charlie Mccory from "The searchers" (1956) and the infamous "unhaynd mah feeeaaancy!" line.

    You have free rein to mute anyone you dont want to listen to. The devs already did their part.

    Not completely. It’s very difficult to identify the offenders as there’s so many players talking at once and you have to spin around around and press T to see them. It’s very much hit and miss.

    They should make the speaker symbol light up next to players’ names when you press Tab. This would make it easier.
