Blizzard Working to Stop Rage Quitting in Overwatch Competitive Play
Blizzard Entertainment has been constantly making improvements to Overwatch with new updates and also bringing new content. Now the studio seems to be looking to make improvements to rage quitting for competitive play as it ruins the experience.
Overwatch players have many times complained about the rage quitters as it ruins the entire experience and have also suggested solutions that can pretty much eliminate this problem. Overwatch game director, Jeff Kaplan, appreciated the offer and noted that they are already in process of taking care of this issue.
Our philosophy has been that we would rather not have leavers playing the game at all (especially in Competitive Play). We keep increasing the penalty for leaving and will continue to do so. We’re in the process of implementing a new policy which would take into account how many Competitive Seasons you have been banned from and at a certain point, prevent you from playing Competitive ever again.
In related news, Blizzard has announced that the festive period of the first anniversary of Overwatch is about to come to an end. A double XP weekend is the order for the day, and provides a valuable opportunity for the community to grind some additional loot boxes.
Keep in mind that all of the new loot is locked to the ongoing Anniversary event. This means that the only other time Blizzard will bring it back is next year for the second anniversary of Overwatch.
