Can we remove the endorsement system?

For breathing you are awarded with being able to live life


#12

The OP right now


#13

Getting experience for giving endorsements is a mistake.

It should be the other way around.


#14

Picks healer > is always endorsed. Isn’t that a win/win?


#15

why thank you, i needed that


#16

#17

I- Is this a humble brag?


#18

“Here’s a gift for you for being a good team mate.”

“Are you calling me entitled?”

“=|”


#19

There aren’t any tangible rewards for receiving endorsements, so yeah, I don’t really care whether or not endorsements exist


#20

Are you playing in qp or comp?

Cuz in an organized team in comp I feel everyone gets the endorsements they deserve, but in quick play it’s just random endorsements but I really don’t see much of a problem. And at least me personally i tend to endorse the players that are well…well behaved and have good team play

Every time someone gives me shot caller, I type out “Whyd you give me shot caller, people are going to think I’m a tank main with a mic” and they go 'who cares its free exp for me and free endoresment for you" and that’s the core problem with this system. Remove the xp bonus for endorsing someone


#22

In QP I get sportsmanship endorsements for being the only healer on the team lol.


#23

Yeah I usually get sportsmanship in qp too but I think its just random :joy:


#24

I am saving this link, thanks

That hecckkin scarred me for life


#26

they exist to make people act nicer, not make them feel like they accomplished something. That’s what the achievements and SR ratings are for.


#27

It will die down eventually, don’t worry.

Similar to when these new forums were up, everyone got and received a bunch of likes, after 50+ days when people got their Trusted Level 3 there was a lot of spamming with images, videos and url’s.

Same thing with this, there will be a lot of endorsements now, but eventually it will be less common and through that I guess you can say it will be more “accurate”.


#28

Walk it off buddy. Overwatch has worse things than that.


#29

Or is it because they get additional exp for nothing?

Beyond it’s phychological aspect it’s functionally meaningless.


#30

It’s not for free though? You’re getting it by a vote?

It’s reduced toxicity by a lot according to the devs.
