Overwatch 2 like Big Brother

Blizzard recently launched an update that collects some user feedback to improve Overwatch 2 (find the Funko Pops on Amazon). The results obtained by the title, in this new free to play version, are quite remarkable but at the time of release, the game still had too many critical issues. Within the latest update, that of November 17, however, the studio has inserted a feature of which players were notified only after the update.

Overwatch 2 if (jQuery("#crm_srl-th_gamedivision_d_mh2_1").is(":visible")) { //console.log("[ACTIVATION TEST] adding zone: tag crm_srl-th_gamedivision_d_mh2_1 slot id: th_gamedivision_d_mh2"); } if (jQuery("#crm_srl-th_gamedivision_d_bx2_1").is(":visible")) { //console.log("[ACTIVATION TEST] adding zone: tag crm_srl-th_gamedivision_d_bx2_1 slot id: th_gamedivision_d_bx2"); } This is a new security measure, adopted by Blizzard to record players' voice chats on Overwatch 2. This feature will undoubtedly receive mixed opinions but, in the intentions of the developers, it was introduced for a good reason. In fact, many users have complained that the free drift taken from the title has attracted many new players, making game chats full of conflict. The developers, in fact, have received several reports of abusive behavior from players and have decided to remedy this way.

Being able to listen to users' voice chats, in fact, Blizzard will immediately be able to identify behaviors that have actually been abusive and distinguish them from false reports. In doing so, therefore, the developers aim to restore order in the interactions between Overwatch 2 users and prevent the game environment from becoming toxic in any way. At the same time, it will be possible to prevent users from being subjected to false reports en masse, as happened in some cases.

The choice of Blizzard is certainly ambivalent because if it is true that on the one hand Overwatch 2 will become safer for players, it is also true that every word of users will potentially be traceable by developers. Just to reassure on this last point, in fact, the developers have added that the registration will not concern group chats. The team's work will focus on reports received in public chats and will quickly delete all conversations that will not receive reports.

if (jQuery("#crm_srl-th_gamedivision_d_mh3_1").is(":visible") ) { //console.log("[ACTIVATION TEST] adding zone: tag crm_srl-th_gamedivision_d_mh3_1 slot id: th_gamedivision_d_mh3"); }
