Overwatch penalties for leaving Competitive Play matches will be steep

Blizzard is packin’ the banhammer…..and you don’t want to see the banhammer. 

Nobody likes quitters, especially in Overwatch. Therefore, much of the Overwatch community has been buzzing in speculation about the punishments that will be dished out for quitting games in Competitive Play mode.

The Competitive Play mode, which is expected to launch sometime later this month, is currently undergoing a beta testing. From this beta testing, many leaks have come.

The latest leak comes from the big ol’ kids over at Reddit, who have divulged the penalties Blizzard will impose on those naughty few who repeatedly leave games in Competitive Play.


A season in Overwatch lasts two and half months, so repeat offenders will be looking at a lengthy timeout if they don’t heed Blizzard’s warning.

Overwatch released on May 23rd for PC, PS4, and Xbox One, garnering great critical acclaim. Check out our review of it here.

My Opinion:

There is nothing worse than smoking out a couple of nesting Torbjorns all match, just for them to quit right as their team is about to lose. Consequently, this news excites me very much.
