'Overwatch' test patch turns troll talk into funny lines

Engadget Engadget 19/08/2016 Mariella Moon

Blizzard has rolled out an Overwatch test patch that could make playing on the game's Public Test Realm (PTR) either hilarious or infuriating, depending on which camp you're in. A bunch of Reddit and NeoGAF users have noticed that when you type in "gg ez" in chat, the game automatically changes it into either very polite messages or hilarious ones that insult the user. The term "gg ez," as you might know, means "good game, easy win" that's meant to insult the losing party in an online match. Well, Blizzard isn't having any of that behavior.

Instead of "gg ez," other players see various messages, including:

  • It was an honor to play with you all. Thank you.
  • Good game! Best of luck to you all!
  • Well played. I salute you all.

But they could also see any of these:

  • I feel very, very small... please hold me...
  • Mommy says people my age shouldn't suck their thumbs.
  • I'm wrestling with some insecurity issues in my life but thank you all for playing with me.

Blizzard uses the beta server to test out new features before public release, so this might or might not make it to the rest of the Overwatch universe. Ana the healing sniper eventually got a wider release after spending time in PTR, though, so keep your fingers cross if you want to see more players get rekt.
