Overwatch 2 introduces harsher punishments for players who leave mid-match

Blizzard takes mid-game time off Monitoring 2 more seriously and implements tougher penalties when Season 10 arrives. People playing unranked games will not be able to join a queue for five minutes after leaving two of their last 20 matches. And if they leave at least 10 out of the last 20, they will be suspended for 48 hours. Players will likely want to be even more careful when it comes to leaving competitive games, as doing so 10 out of 20 times will result in them being banned for the rest of the season. In its announcement, Blizzard said that while it realizes that not everyone voluntarily abandons a game, these changes “should help curb players who deliberately choose to leave a match.”

The developer is also making it easier for groups of friends to play together in competitive mode, regardless of their rank, by introducing “large groups”. A large group is defined by players from a wide range of ranks, from Diamond to levels up to five skill divisions lower. Blizzard admits that opting for the new queue option will result in longer wait times, as it has to match a large group with another large group with similar ranks to be fair. But it is hoped that the new feature will eliminate the need to use an alt account to play with friends.

The company is also adding new features designed to help prevent abuse and harassment in the game. People will soon be able to add up to 10 players to their “Avoid as a Teammate” list instead of just three. It also makes it easier to report disruptive behavior by updating its reporting interface. Finally, Blizzard blocks a player’s access to text or voice chat during their matches if they are found to have engaged in abusive behavior and violated the company’s code of conduct. They can only regain these privileges if they spend time playing Monitoring 2 on their best behavior.
