  • Overwatch Stepping Up Penalties For Poor Game Behavior

Blizzard has had enough of the air of toxicity that pervades Overwatch, announcing on its blog that it's taking a much more aggressive approach when dishing out punishments. It is presumed that the new penalties will be mostly the same but longer and more immediate than before. This will let players who report abusers know that their reports are being taken seriously. To this end, effective immediately, we will be issuing increased penalties to players in response to verified reports of bad behavior.

Blizzard is clear in its message that being a bit of an asshole is no longer tolerated, saying, "We believe that our in-game reporting and player penalty system is one of our most important features, and it's something we want to invest in significantly over the next year".

"In Overwatch, that means anything from abusive chat, harassment, in-game spam, match inactivity (being intentionally AFK), and grieving". If you see someone engaging in any of these types of behaviors, report them. Players found guilty of the behaviour can be "silenced, suspended, or even banned from the game as a result".

Suite of Integrated Apps to Run Your Business
There are about 2 billion consumer cloud users, compared to 20 million or 30 million enterprise cloud users, said Leary. The strategy behind Zoho's new suite is to make the whole spectrum of Zoho offerings more appealing to businesses.

Notably, Lyrlirra said Blizzard was still in the process of developing a similar system for those playing Overwatch on PS4 and Xbox One, but did not offer any details as to when those tools would be available. In fact, they "have many elements of [the reporting feature] undergoing internal testing right now".

Blizzard is working hard to ensure that playing Overwatch is an inviting and welcoming environment as possible and plans to step up and continue to improve its responses to bad behaviour in the coming months.

"'Play nice; play fair' is one of Blizzard's core values", Overwatch community manager Lylirra writes in a post to the game's forums.
