Overwatch is available for the PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, but console community management leaves something to be desired. A Blizzard forum poster detailed his frustrating experience with a troll that stated "Send me cash or I'll throw" and the complete lack of systems to report and ban toxic players.
Well, the reporting system blizzard has would eventually weed that asshole out of the system.
They cant stop the idea of trolling happening but if someone constantly does that they will get banned.
Plus, that guy wont be succesful in getting money and would probably stop at one point lol
They have an issue with people grinding for loot boxes or using M&K on console but not this.
If they wanted, they would work something out with the console companies to figure put a report system, but they don't put the same lev od attention to consoles. Also banning a troll from overwatch won't make Sony lose money because he would still keep his PSN account and go somewhere else. The rules are the rules and I'm sure Sony would understand and won't intervene.
To me it is just Blizzard not caring enough about consoles.
Meh, bad journalism. I was in that forum post and I'll state the same thing here. Console report feature is being implemented in the summer. It's been being developed since winter and takes a while to get right before going live on consoles. That's what Jeff Kaplan said, expect it around summer. I have around 700 hours in overwatch and I've never encountered someone trying to extort me. If they tried and threw the match, Meh it's a loss, I'll get a win back right after. After all its a game. You can always get back to where you were, it's not like you'll go on a 10 game losing streak from 1 guy throwing. Even then there's a 10 game Win streak right around the corner after that.
So morons sent the troll money? Lol definitely not blizzards problem
