Overwatch Will Reveal Details of New Anti-Griefing System Soon, Says Blizzard GM
Unfortunately the practice of griefing in competitive online games is a reality, and in Overwatch this is no different. However, the most popular team-based game is going to have a new anti-griefing system, according to a conversation between a OW player and a Blizzard support. Details will be revealed by lead designer Jeff Kaplan in the coming weeks, says the GM.
The conversation was shared by the user AverageAristocrat on Reddit. The player made a complaint about a player with a high level who was trying to manipulate the rank to reach the lower rank in order to play with his friends.
As the Blizzard GM suggested, the new system will have warnings and even suspensions. This suspension may be for an entire season if the behavior persists.
