Der har været en del snak angående snydere i Overwatch betaen, og vi kan nu meddele at Blizzard har udtalt sig om hvad konsekvensen er hvis nogen snyder i Overwatch når det udgives.

Blizzard har meldt ud at der er ingen tolerance over for snyd, og man bliver permanent bannet fra deres servere med det samme hvis man bliver taget i snyd:

We’ve always taken cheating in Blizzard games very seriously, and that stance is no different for Overwatch. “Play nice; play fair” is one of our core values as a company, and it’s something we’ve taken to heart not only when designing the game, but also as we’ve developed our plans to support it and our players after launch.

What does this mean for Overwatch? If a player is found to be cheating—or using hacks, bots, or third-party software that provides any sort of unfair advantage—that player will be permanently banned from the game. Full stop. Not only does cheating undermine the spirit of fair play that all of our products are based on, but it works to diminish the fun and enjoyment of others. While we are unlikely to publicly acknowledge when accounts are closed as a result of cheating or using unauthorized programs, we have and will continue to monitor Overwatch for exploitative behavior, as well as take action as needed to preserve the integrity of game.

Overwatch udgives til Playstation 4, Xbox One og PC den 24. Maj.
