Why does reporting someone for throwing silence them?

General Discussion
Why don't we punish them in a way that will hurt them? They don't give a crap if they're silenced, they just keep throwing.
It doesn't anymore. It hasn't done this for some time.

There is a post coming about updates to the punishment system coming soon.

So when are you going to address the defense hero problems that you have been ignoring for months then?

I reallllly can't wait. Throwing is the reason why I'm put off from playing Competitive.

Good to hear Jeff. Overwatch is a steller game in itself, but the leavers/throwers are ruining it for people like me who actually care about it enough to play properly :-)

A topic for another time in this distant future I imagine. The report system is the focus for now.

I hope there's some good news on that front for console players too.

Finally, thanks! I haven't been able to actually have fun with this game since summer started which sucks because this is the time that I can actually play it consistently.

Thank you.

Do you guys record gameplay?

I was playing with one of my friends on my other account the other day, and we had a torbjorn jumping off the map. Is this something your system can calculate?

A system like the other Overwatch (from csgo) would be ideal. It's hard to hide griefing/botting when 50 people are shown a replay of the match and asked to decide on it.

Making the punishment harsher won't do a thing.
Ppl thrown cuz the matchmaking is bad and the game does nothing to encourage them playing since you get sr for winning or losing, not for what you do in the match.

im so screwed as a symmetra main, i win over 60% but get reported over even more i think.
I hope so, I keep getting a lot of throwers and it really makes me think I would be better off playing qp (at least they have backfill there) and give up comp altogether, cause what's the point of winning one game just to have a thrower on the next one and get a loss... Even though I prefer competitive since a team's comp doesn't consist of 4 dps and 2 snipers like qp seems to, but even last game we lost the 2nd and 3rd points, so on 4th they all left and it was just me :(

Of course it was a loss by then...
