15Overwatch Filters Trolls With Bad Sportsmanship
Overwatch is a competitive action game. Gameplay can get heated between players and unkind words are then exchanged. Text chat isn't available on consoles, but currently open to PC players. Blizzard received several complaints on their forum regarding the phrase "gg ez" or "good game, easy win," which
is said after a match is over. Some gamers found that phrase insulting towards less skilled players.
Blizzard implemented new filters on their Overwatch test server to trolls who decide to insult others. Typing "gg ez" will be filtered in several different ways, which are more insulting to the person typing them. Some examples of the twisted filters include: "“I’m wrestling with some insecurity issues in my life but thank you all for playing with me,” “Gee whiz! That was fun. Good playing!” and “For glory and honor! Huzzah comrades!” Those who try to trolls others end up looking ridiculous.
