"Overwatch" is Blizzard's newest colourful shooter title. Blizzard

The Competitive Mode for “Overwatch” has been the highlight of the much-awaited update. However, it seems like the penalties are not doled out in the fairest of conditions or situations.

Leavers, also known as rage quitters in online games, are those who leave a match before it ends because they may already be losing against an opponent. The easiest way would be to disconnect from the match, which would not render the match as a loss in their records.

Before Competitive Play was rolled out in the update, Blizzard already enumerated the rules when it comes to leavers in the “Overwatch.” But there is such a thing as mid-game disconnection, and players who aren’t leavers will still try to get back to the game.

GameSpot reported that players have been frustrated by the penalty that they incur when they try to reconnect. As per the report, successful reconnection will not incur a penalty. But from players’ experiences, there is still a penalty counted against their Skill Rating or end in a loss. This is sometimes the case even when the player wins the match.

The good news is that Blizzard is already taking action and exploring a fix for the issue. No specific details were revealed as to how they will do this.

Speaking of cheaters, it seems that Blizzard is really taking it up a notch when it comes to people who help cheaters in “Overwatch.” Blizzard is reportedly suing a German creator of the Watchover Tyrant cheat tool, which has been used by several “Overwatch” players to gain unfair advantage over others.

According to TorrentFreak, Bossland GMBH, the creator of the cheat tool, will have to face the lawsuit from Blizzard in a federal court in California. The lawsuit accuses the German cheat creator of copyright infringement, violation of the DMCA’s anti-circumvention provision and unfair competition, among others.

Rightly put, the developer also stated that the cheat tool had caused a loss of sales in millions of dollars, considering how they ruin the game for “Overwatch” players who go by the rules.

“Moreover, by releasing Overwatch Cheat just days after the release of ‘Overwatch,’ Defendants are attempting to destroy or irreparably harm that game before it even has had a chance to fully flourish,” said one of the statements in the lawsuit as quoted by TorrenttFreak.

It doesn’t help that Bossland GMBH apparently already has a record of creating cheats for other Blizzard titles. Renowned “World of Warcraft” and “Diablo 3” are among the games that it has created a cheat tool for.
