Will OW2 just be a continuation of this smurf and cheater fest?

With $20 smurf sales weekends every month?

Yep, the game is trash idk what anyone else expects. Get ready for some weird new monetization scheme - I’m betting they try and copy some kind of ‘Season Pass’ nonsense, that seems to be where most triple A games are going. I’ve never liked it as a model, but then again I was too old to be convinced to rent rather than own my games experiences.

Jeff recently admitted smurfing is a problem and said they’re working on a solution but not to expect anything til Overwatch 2 or later as they need to factor in how account creation works on consoles which makes it not an easy fix, apparently.

IMO for PvP yes, for PvE I doubt it. But I’m only buying OW2 for PvE. I’ll stick to OW1 for PvP.

I think the problem of the game is complete balancing stupidity and tonns of cheaters, not smurfing
