here's a video of it in practice on the PTR

this is hilarious and probably the best way i've seen to counter this kind of behaviour - though i hope they'll filter ggez, g g e z, gg e z, etc as well. way too common at the end of the game.

lock if superfluous i guess? think this was funny enough for a thread

Love the idea, but those "fake ban messages" are a little cruel.

Are they a typo?

The last couple entries on that list seem out of place.

i think those are all new strings added for text so those will only appear if you've actually been banned.

I'm assuming that and the ban messages were just pulled from a resource file and are unrelated.

But keep the ban ones please.

A welcome addition, that phrase was never used in a light-hearted manner. It's always the abusive players that managed to scrape a win after insulting their team all game long that type it at the end of a match, and every time it sours the mood for everyone.

It always used to piss me off when I was playing league of legends, it could have been a really close, fun match and then you have a dick head saying that the win was "easy". It's really bad sportsmanship and contributes massively to an already toxic community.

I don't play multiplayer games like that any more because of how toxic the people are. Call me a wimp if you want lol

I think people who win a game and decide bring unnecessary toxicity for no reason other than to piss players off are the "kids."

Don't blame you at all. I haven't touched Overwatch since the first two weeks after release. I heard more insults and just straight up harassment during that time then I ever did during the 5.84 days of DOTA, and THAT was a fucking toxic community for a game, but it was more understandable since it ran 45-80 minutes, you were more invested. Overwatch games are over so quick it's hard to understand how people get so worked up.

I am curious to see what they've done for the summer games stuff though, maybe I'll start it up tonight.
