Overwatch community is on of the most creative and passionate communities. With over 20 million copies sold, there are bound to be some trolls. While watching some is amusing but the actions of some trolls negatively impact the overall experience of the game and to deal with it the developers are working on their Overwatch reporting system.

In a recent post from game director Jeff Kaplan over at Blizzard Forums the developer noted that the development team is currently working to deal with trolls. The developer noted that their first step is reviewing the Overwatch Reporting system.

He further added that once that is done the team will review all of their policies for the game along with the punishments.

Our first step is reviewing our current reporting system. This is well underway and we have some changes to the design that we think will help. Once we can update the reporting design, we are also going to internally review all of our policies, including punishments.

An Overwatch player has reached the max level in the game in six months and did it all by himself. French Overwatch player, TaZzeRK, did this on his own and hit level 1800, which is the highest level Blizzard has actually designed an image border for and is considered max level by players.

He accomplished this max level in six months by playing Overwatch 16-17 hours a day. TaZzeRK does not have a job so obviously he had a lot of time to play Overwatch. He himself said that he has been “rushing” the game since its launch.

Overwatch is a first-person multiplayer shooter developed by Blizzard Entertainment for PC, Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
