Our progress so far

(Jeff Kaplan) #1

Our Global Insights group just finished parsing some stats as it relates to LFG and Endorsements.

Post release of Endorsements and LFG:

The % of Competitive Matches that Contain Abusive Chat is down:

26.4% in the Americas
16.4% in KR

The % of Daily Players being Abusive is down:

28.8% in the Americas
21.6% in KR

We’re really pleased with the community’s efforts to make OW a better place! Thank you all!

And we’ll keep working on iterating on these features to make them better as well as exploring other systems to improve the gameplay environment.

Please remove Endorsements
Lucio emote is unfair for EU players
Can we remove the endorsement system?
Private profiles are ruining ranked
The Healing Overwatch Needs :sunny:
So... Was role queue supposed to be a joke?
Private Profiles are the worst thing to happen to the game
Throwing is at an all time high

thanks for the update

Nice to see that players are being nice to each other


Nice, keep up the great work!


EU is so toxic that the results aren’t even shown to us


Thank you for the update!


Very impressed that, though toxic at times, this community isn’t all that bad! This is great!


What about EU?

Korea is there but an entire continent is not?


We are a true no mans land


Interesting to see the stats! Also funny considering people have thought me crazy for thinking the community isn’t so toxic haha!

Thanks for the info, Jeff.

We don’t have all the stats reported yet… sorry… I was just sharing what progress we had…

What about the Symmetra insights group :o


Thank you, Mr. Kaplan, and thank your team for your efforts in giving us the tools to improve this community that we share and care for. Overwatch is the only “shooter” style game that I have played since the Goldeneye for the Nintendo 64, and my love for it is a testament to the strength of your team’s vision. Thank you.


Always getting the hearthstone expansions a day late and now this, disgraceful stuff.


They are talkin about improvements, EU will never improve.


Going to have to second this. Normally not into shooters, but you and your team, Jeff, have made one that I really love and that I’ve been playing daily for two years now.


Hope this trend continues with toxicity going down.


Thank you for this update. I REALLY love the endorsement system for this reason, but also because it takes the sting out of losing a bad game or a close game just a little bit.

I’m someone who’s always tried to be positive and it makes me really happy to know that that actually means something now; even if its just an icon over my name.



I guess you were too excited to share the little information that you already have.

Thanks anyway Jeff.


Since when have they putting out the expansions a day late?

(Well, it might as well be a day late because of how almost impossible it is to get onto servers lol)


Thanks for the update, this is great news.
