Chat HTML Code SPAM

Game mode: Online private
Type of issue: Bug
Server type: PvP
Region: Oceanic
Mods?: No
Edition: Steam


Bug Description:

using the internal chat HTML code, players are able to spam large text in chat


Steps to Reproduce:

Please provide a step-by-step process of how the bug can be reproduced. Please be as detailed as possible; the more details, the easier it will be for us to find and fix the bug:

  1. Open Chat
  2. Type the code
    </><span color="#FFF000" size="1000">this is large text
  3. hit enter
  4. copy and paste many times to spam chat

They added a server setting for that. Not at PC to double check the exact syntax. I will post it a bit later if no one does by then.

I still consider it a bug because it can be abused like increasing text size and possibly other things…

Adding DisableChatFormatting=True to the ServerSettings.ini file fixed it.

@Narelle thanks for your quick response.
