On the PTR, if you type "gg ez" in chat, this is what will show up on the enemy's screen instead.

Then I type 'GG Easy', simple.

Because "GG EZ" players are toxic. And it is hilarious.

Lol why not?
i wonder. if i do ggez instead of gg at the end of the game. ppl will know i'm trying to say ggez. but i like some of the new responses from ggez. so it seems sensible to just say ggez now to shorthand a lot of those neat responses. would this be considered bm or not?
While I support this change, Blizzard is not really in any position to criticize other people's use of words.
Feeeeeelings
It's hilarious that they imply that the insecurity issue lies with the typer of ggez rather that the reader who gets offended by it.
Is this how they're combating "toxicity" in Overwatch?
Like, you can't handle four letters being used sarcastically so you need to filter it to phrases that are insulting to the user? I feel like taking these jabs are more childish and "toxic" than "good game, easy."

Hey, maybe we should get rid of D.Va's Easy Mode voice clip, can't have someone take offense to that.

Get real, Blizzard.
About time! I can rest easy now, my feelings are no longer in danger anymore.
Blizzard may be incompetent and talentless in general but I always give credit where credit is due. This.. is amazing.
Not a solution. Wasn't a problem to begin with.

One step closer to Overwatch getting its own "kek"-type of memes.

I feel like they are just going to add these now, you secretly working to help increase amount of words or combinations blocked?:P
Amazing!
Whelp guess I'll have to throw down the gg_ez (or whatever iteration is safe) every game from now on.

Before I only did it when opponents flamed in all chat (which was pretty rare) but there were so many tears that Blizzard is trying to filter it?

People, it's four letters, relax.
