UPDATE TO WHATS HAPPENING!

I've been suspended a 6th time on my main account for a total of 8 days. I've currently taken my newest account from plat to gm (currently 4200 something) in just 2 days. If blizzard won't allow me to play where I belong I will begin to do unranked to GM streams for as long as I can.

During my climb to GM someone who was in a game with me was suspended for playing sym/torb/moira on his/her way up the ranks. They came into my stream and told me what happened. This person went to live chat to try and get unsuspended, eventually on the fourth ticket they unsuspended this person.

This GM told them that : " GM's are told to be very hands off on these reports as the devs want the reporting system to be community driven."

More Symmetra main bans : https://www.reddit.com/r/Overwatch/comments/7j1way/symmetra_main_several_bans_i_dont_know_what_more/?utm_content=title&utm_medium=hot&utm_source=reddit&utm_name=Overwatch

Blizzard openly admits here that they are allowing the community to decide who to get rid of WHICH IS ABSOLUTELY INSANE. How does the community get to decide who they don't like and therefore abuse the reporting system until that player is suspended?

Let me know your thoughts and concerns about this please!

I've been suspended 5 times for disruptive game play and only one of those times has it been overturned due to inconsistencies. I can guarantee that those same inconsistencies in my overturned suspension appear in every suspension since then.

My accounts are Stevooo#1352 and PostBaloney#1457

29hrs or so in total, I removed push to talk and had no way other than text chat to communicate with my team. Not switching heroes and not communicating in voice chat is not a bannable offense.

Griefing is :
Actively harassing or disrupting your own team through the use of GAME MECHANICS or player actions. This includes placing a Symmetra teleporter exit at a cliff edge, or intentionally allowing yourself to be eliminated by the enemy team (I.E feeding).

Griefing is NOT:
Simply making a mistake or playing poorly.

Poor teamwork is:
Not trying to complete map objectives or constantly communicating in a negative fashion (I.E. "this team is horrible.").

Poor teamwork is NOT:
Playing a hero that is NOT considered optimal by the community or staying silent in team voice chat.

Openly encouraging people to report me at the START of the game and admitting here https://us.battle.net/forums/en/overwatch/topic/20759617517?page=17#post-339 that hes just going to report me no matter what I play.

And this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Communication can only be a good thing, and is deserved for paying customers. Good luck.

I’m glad you finally made a post here. You’ve already served your ban (or bans) for doing the bronze to GM streams and haven’t done one since, people need to stop using those as an excuse for current or future suspensions because you already had your punishment.
Oh man, i hope Jeff comes in here and roasts you into oblivion, showing how toxic you are like that one dude. Always the same with you one trick people.

Oh, and it starts with the thread title. All caps is against forum rules and will get your thread deleted. if youre like this ingame no wonder youre suspended.
Use customer support. Get a ticket and profit.

Wait a minute. So when I get caught out of position (legitimate, though perhaps bad play), when I say "Hello!" to the enemy, that's feeding?

RIP my account 2004-2017

There not gonna respond, I've been suspended for the stupidest thing and all they've done is given me a copy pasted reason why I "Threw" a game. I'm a hog main, I play hog, and really well. But when some idiot thinks that I'm a one-trick, I get reported. I'd be surprised if blizzard answers, no one actually reads the reports. It's just a lazy cycle machine with copy pasted reasons for suspension. For a fantastic and Breath taking game with fun mechanics, this really pulls it down.

You're not the only one, there's multiple Symmetra mains on the Sym main reddit who have gotten suspended unfairly as well. Blizzard has done an awful job at addressing what is and isn't a reportable offense. Even their own GM's contradict them. Hope your issue gets resolved soon, you're a Sym god.

What does this have to do with the OP? You deserved to be banned for abusive chat, and you were. Seems to make sense.
Trolling.

Toxic.

Poor Team Coordination.

I don't feel the need to go on.

How about these people get banned, eh Blizz?

It's scary knowing the report system is automated, and you have people in the community like chubz and chipsaow taking advantage of this system.

Because this toxic behavior of insta reporting at the start of the game or reporting someone because they play a hero that isn't considered optimal to the reporter.

At times, I have been reported because I was told to play soldier, despite having 0 hours on him in all seasons. It's gotten to the point that I no longer want to play your game, at all.

Until something major is done, I can see a lot of people leaving the game and not returning because the toxicity is becoming unbearable.

Yeah, automation will NEVER be as accurate as people. If it were accurate, he would have been banned sooner.

All jokes aside, if they seriously can't handle the work load of people getting, lets say, 25 reports in a season, HIRE MORE PEOPLE.

We ALL know you can afford it.
