Overwatch Developer Slams Rude Forum Poster But Apologizes with Year of Free WoW
It’s frustrating when Blizzard nerfs your favorite character in Overwatch, but very few people question Blizzard about ability to design the game. Recently, one Battle.net forum user "SharkyMarky" was clearly upset after a round of Overwatch that probably did not go their way. "Does Blizzard even play their own game? " SharkyMarky exclaimed in the title of the thread. "Nuff said," is all their post contained.
Later in the day, Overwatch game director Jeff Kaplan took it upon himself to respond to the thread.
After Jeff’s reply, SharkyMarky realized his mistake and apologized to Kaplan for his rudeness and explained that he was really just frustrated with Widowmaker's long-standing balance complaints. Kaplan actually responded to SharkyMarky and said Blizzard will keep a close eye on Widowmaker. In addition, Jeff also awards SharkyMarky both a year of World of Warcraft and a Noire Widowmaker skin which could only get from preordering Overwatch.
We play the game a lot. Looking at your profile, I've won approximately 800 more games than you have. That's not counting the daily internal playtests I am in, the time I spent in Alpha and Beta. Did you have a specific question or are you just here trolling?
SharkyMarky has already played Widowmaker for more than 30h, and his highest MMR is 2559. What will you do when you favorite class or character being nerfed? Leave a comment below to tell us.
