What is the Overwatch Team going to do about Smurfs (players deliberately playing below their true skill rating)?
Jeff Kaplan answered during an interview with Seagull that there will be more enforcement to identify and remove smurfs from the game and there is a dedicated team at Blizzard working to accomplish this.
