L2D has several chat channels to help keep chat organized. ChatMod are our chat moderators. 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.


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.
