"Overwatch Arrives in Dota," meaning the MOBA is
getting the same community self-regulation tools as Counter-Strike: Global
. Out hopes that this means Genji or Winston from Blizzard's game
of the same name would strike down miscreants are dashed by the explanation of
what this means:
Much like in CS:GO, Overwatch for Dota 2 provides a
system that allows good-standing members of the community to verify the validity
of reports flagging disruptive actions within games.
If a player chooses to review a case, they’ll watch a replay with pre-marked
sections indicating possible negative behavior by a specific player. After
reviewing the replay, they can choose: guilty, not guilty, or insufficient
evidence for either.
Eligible players will occasionally be notified below their profile pictures that
they have the option to review a case. Reviewers will earn an accuracy score for
their efforts, and those who falsely convict will receive a lower score,
eventually losing the ability to participate in Overwatch at all. To gather a
pool of reliable reviewers, we’ll be enabling a growing number of accounts for
participation over the next week or so.
