Blizzard Test New Overwatch Filter on Bad Sportsmanship

I’m sure plenty of us have played an online game and lost; we’ve been mocked, particularly by the phrase “GG EZ”. Although not technically abusive, the call is still rude. To combat this unsportsmanlike conduct, Blizzard have now pushed a fix onto their Overwatch public test server (where patches are tested before being pushed out to the community). Now, if you type “GG EZ” into the chat, you will get some great auto-generated responses. Check out the picture below:

Apart from the hilarity of some of the responses, it’s nice to see Blizzard taking steps to curb unsportsmanlike conduct in the game before it becomes too toxic. Previous patch notes can be found here.

Stay tuned for more Overwatch news as it’s released, GG EZ I’m wrestling with some insecurity issues in my life but thank you for playing with me.
