I joined yesterday.
While making a bug report (a category I can make threads in), the forum prevented me from adding more than 2 helpful links, making my bug report worse.
Today I try and reply to a thread, only there’s no reply button. I try to make a thread in the competitive category–I can’t.
Since I deal with poorly designed things all the time, I assume it’s some stupid design decision resulting in this, rather than a bug or me not me missing the reply button. After a quick Google search, I find there’s some hidden trust system, though the forums have no clear explanation of what it is or how to move past it.
Is there a clear criteria somewhere that I’m missing?
Is there a way to view your trust level, or whatever, and see where I am compared to where I want to be?
“Just use the forums” doesn’t help me. I’ve already done that and don’t have time to waste doing things aimlessly, hoping it might move up an invisible trust level.
Update: I found this:
Key point: you need an Overwatch license linked to your account.
I’m yet to test it, but I assume that’s the answer to my issue.
I tried to post in the bottom of the thread, but the thread won’t let me.
