    Let's Laugh At How Retarded Blizzard Is



    They are banning FredJ types for picking a non-meta character and getting reported by their team.

    This includes some players who have done this all the way up to top500 on the ladder.

    Imagine if activision banned quickscopers because they weren’t willing to switch classes to “better benefit the team composition”

    Imagine if Valve released patches where one hero was just an indisputably weaker version of another and you picked the weak hero (to have fun in a video game/just because you want to) and I whined about your pick all game and then when we both reported each other after the game Valve decided to ban you for "disruptive gameplay/ignoring teammate requests."

    If u ever wondered how a cartoony arcade shooter game could develop such a mind-bogglingly intolerable community, just look at the attitudes of their leadership.

    This seems like a case of a low level customer service employee trying to reverse engineer a decision for why someone was banned automatically by the report system.

    Valve/Blizzard/most game companies use report systems like this, where (# of people you have played with in game / # of people who report you) and if the rate of reports is too high then you get banned.

    it's kinda interesting to look at this but I think we all know what Blizzard is gonna do which is to reiterate that you can't be banned for your picks. A single GM/customer service rep writing a poorly written and vague response isn't really indicative of the overall company's thoughts on this

    also i think you're missing the part of the story where the people who are receiving these bans are the DotA equivalents of TA pickers from 4 or 5 years ago, where if they aren't getting their hero they are AFKing in base and doing nothing for the rest of the game, abusing disconnect/connect bugs to not get kicked for inactivity. they are griefing bans, not picking bans

    If these people were doing any of that (afking in games/griefing/abusing disconnect or w.e) it would be mentioned in the response. You're making baseless accusations, Max_.

    No, the player who you wrote about (the top 400 torj or whoever) is named XUL and has been banned multiple times for afking through games where people snipe torj from him

    Again, this sounds like a low level cs rep explaining away an auto ban. This kind of stuff happens very often in LoL and DotA as well, but in DotA it's just LP

    I strongly disagree with everyone and the R word shouldn't be used so lightly.

    Im sure alightsoul meant to imply that Blizzard was slow in responding to some bad PR, not that they are developmentally challenged.

    no one thinks the overwatch devs are challenged; it's just that they develop a game for people that are.

    I dont even know anymore max's point is reasonable at the same time Blizzard has said publically they will punish you for your picks and Riot will too what is the world coming to when I cant go mid winter wyvern.

    overwatchs matchmaking system uses ingame statistics/medals in the mmr calculation. that should make it obvious how stupid the people in charge of that game are.

    well first off, fredj types probably won't be banned because tracer is one of the most meta picks and is generally pretty good in every comp possible. i dont think its wrong, he deserves it. ive had a good number of games with shitty one tricks including the said person and none of them have ever been enjoyable win or loss . also one tricking off meta picks tends to give a disproportionately higher skill rating per win because blizz lul. i think the problem is more than him being a one trick, its that he one tricks torb who is incredibly situational and requires the team to play around him while never switching. also overwatch probably has one of the most toxic communities ive ever seen.

    I think if your way is mirroring riot and valve, then you need a reality check. If this gm had to make up an excuse for why the automatic system banned him, then there's a problem,even if the ban is deserved .
