For finally responding to one tricks that throw and not suspending people that report them ❤
Let's be clear here and not confuse policy:

One Tricking is not bannable and should not be reported (it even says so in the text)

Throwing is bannable and should be reported. We appreciate your help here.

False reporting is bannable. Don't misuse the report system.

It is inconceivable to me how you can intertwine unrelated subjects like OTP and throwing. It is not related according to the rules.

Finally you have said it. Maybe this will stop the OTP wars on the forum.
Why does it say it in text at all?

Are we allowed or suppose to report people if they false report others for one tricking?

What about off meta heros?
How do you prove someone is throwing, you have no proof is the excuse they come up with all the time, or are they just going to ban because they mentioned it doing it but still play legitimately.

Why wasn't this said in the developer update though? More people look at that than the forums and a majority of the community thinks it's still bannable.

Just report what you see. And don't check their career profile before you do because it's irrelevant.
Jeff is on fire today with all his posting. I love it!

they can't, that's why customer support takes reports at face value and say they have to trust the community's judgement when the system automatically suspends someone without due process.

What's the stance if a person is effectively throwing with their hero pick in that situation and refuses to make changes to increase the chances of winning? e.g running Pharah into Cree/Soldier/Zen, attack Sym into Moira/Winston...
Situations where you can and most likely will be shut down every time, no matter what else your team picks to play around you, especially at higher levels.

basically can only be reported if the individual is literally trolling and if your report is wrong the one who will be banned will be you? A.K.A: guys competitive will suck forever deal with it

Is there any mention on the report system being abused to auto-ban one tricks tho?

There's various players who have came on the forums showing proof that they've had 4+ suspensions over turned because they keep getting auto-suspended for one tricking.

Sticky this or something Jeff, otherwise this will just continue. The answer needs to be right in front of everyone's faces if you ever want to dissuade this behaviour.
