The new Overwatch patch, currently in development and being tested on the game’s Public Test Region, has an interesting new feature added to discourage players from poor sportsmanship and blatant arrogance.
The patch, according to the original report by Eurogamer, filters the phrase “gg ez” (good game, easy – implying that the match was effortless due to poorly skilled opponents), transforming into other, less antagonising and far more humourous phrases such as:
– I feel very, very small… please hold me…
– C’mon, Mom! One more game before you tuck me in. Oops mistell
– I could really use a hug right now.
– It’s past my bedtime. Please don’t tell my mommy.
– I’m wrestling with some insecurity issues in my life but thank you for playing with me.
– I’m trying to be a nicer person. It’s hard, but I’m trying, guys.
While this may not do much for ridding the competitive gaming world of sore losers and boastful winners, it’s certainly an entertaining way to tackle the problem and to that we say, gg Blizzard.
