Overwatch Update: How Blizzard Handles Trolls In The Game
Just like any other online games out there, Overwatch also has its own story of trolls to share. And since trolls will always be trolls, studios tend to implement penalties or whatsoever so as to limit such nonsensical players. But as for Blizzard, there is a better way to handle them. And yes, it is as funny as hell.
According to Eurogamer, Blizzard has just recently released a new Overwatch patch to the game. It first hit the public test realm, but unlike any other updates, it has a hilarious feature to offer. Basically, it automatically changes the chat of a player who key in certain phrases. The good thing, though, is it only affects those who are fond of trolling other players.
If an Overwatch player types "ez" or "gg ez" (short for "easy win" and "good game, easy win") and presses enter, the text will instead put out a different, random phrase -- one that is specifically designed by the studio. Check out some the lines below:
- "For glory and honor! Huzzah Comrades!
- "Well played. I salute you all."
- "It's past my bedtime. Please don't tell my mommy."
- "I feel very, very small... please hold me..."
- "I'm wrestling with some insecurity issues in my life but thank you for all playing with me.
Obviously, this is not something Overwatch players will expect from a troll. While this is a huge step, there are still phrases ("get rekt" in particular) deemed unpoliced, as reported by PC Gamer. Also, type "ggez" (removing the space) will not do any good, as Blizzard auto-edited it as well.
It remains unclear if this is a new Overwatch feature, though some players agree that it should be. One thing is for sure: the people behind it is certainly having fun. Way to go, Blizzard!
What are your thoughts on the said auto-edit function in Overwatch? Do you think Blizzard should continue developing it for the game? Share this to your troll friends now, and do not forget to update us below in the comment section!
