Overwatch Auto-replaces Mean Comments into Hilarious Ones

Video Games can get competitive, real competitive (admit it, you’ve dished out your fair share of chat thrashing). Developers always try to keep the peace, and Blizzard Entertainment is one of those devs that like to really reign down on some gamer jerks, and apparently, they’re getting quite creative.


Reports on NeoGAF tells that this douche-y little phrase “gg ez” is being automatically replaced with self-burning phrases and bans scares. Here, check out these confirmed phrases:

  • Wishing you all the best.
  • Your Overwatch account has been suspended. Please consult your registered email for details.
  • Your battle.net account has been banned.
  • Custome Game Members Can Invite
  • Mommy says people my age shouldn’t suck their thumbs.
  • I’m trying to be a nicer person. It’s hard, but I am trying, guys.
  • For glory and honor! Huzzah comrades!
  • I could really use a hug right now.
  • Well played. I salute you all.
  • Gee whiz! That was fun. Good playing!
  • Ah shucks… you guys are the best!It’s past my bedtime. Please don’t tell my mommy.
  • I’m wrestling with some insecurity issues in my life but thank you all for playing with me.
  • C’mon, Mom! One more game before you tuck me in. Oops mistell.

Here it is in action:

So far, this hilarious take on censorship is only live on Overwatch’s “PTR” test servers, where players can test out upcoming content before it’s official release. Only time will tell if this “feature” ever goes live on the main game. Here’s to hoping it does.
