Overwatch cheaters deserve the ban hammer but some of them clearly also deserve some love for their user names.
Overwatch is intended as an eSport so Blizzard has to take a pretty hard stance against cheating. The latest ban wave has knocked 1,700 Overwatch cheaters off the Chinese servers.
Thanks to Redditor _CRISPR, a Chinese native speaker, we have translations for some of these names – and they’re great.
Accordingly, let the Overwatch community rejoice in the fall of these former comrades:
- If I don’t get POTG I’ll stream me eating shit
- The world could always use more butts
- SOOO MUCH LAG
- Justice Rains F-ughhhh
- It’s High N-ughhhh
- I hope there’s no Reaper in Heaven
- Aimbot and Wallkack, deal with me
- Sounds like someone’s sayin’ that I’m handsome
- GF that leaks air
- Can’t think of a name
There are several more quality examples in the post linked above.
Look, these people are not on my Christmas card list: cheating is pointless, boring and pathetic. But at least they have a sense of humour, a quality that I often feel is missing from gaming in general – especially the competitive scenes. A game like Overwatch, which is so joyous, deserves a bit of levity. I can’t stay mad.
