Cheating players can sometimes harm others. Therefore, Blizzard took decisive steps to avoid Overwatch cheaters damaging other players’ matches.
As part of the developer update, Game Director Jeff Kaplan revealed, Blizzard will automatically turn off matches when it detects fraud. It is not known exactly how this game studio caught cheating.
But, Blizzard promises that fraudsters will face very hard action. Luckily, players will not lose SR points from competitive matches just because players who are not good join your team.
Kaplan noted, this feature is active on the Public Test Realm (PTR) server. Unfortunately, he does not say when players will see features released in general.
Blizzard new cheating detection system
Launching Engadget on Monday (7/15/2019), the success of Blizzard’s new approach to players who cheat depends on its effectiveness. The approach might not be of much help if only marking a few players is not clear or the charters are one step ahead of the bot.
However, if the approach can function properly as promised, the perpetrators of fraud should not be happy with it.
