Overwatch 2 Aims to Penalize Players Who Are Friends with Cheaters, Increased Voice Comms Monitoring



Overwatch 2

Blizzard is leveling up their efforts to thwart cheaters and misconduct within Overwatch 2, as the company aims to penalize players who are friends with cheaters and will amp up their monitoring of voice communications.

The company detailed this in the brand new update for its Defense Matrix Initiative, which is focused on curbing “gameplay sabotage, abusive chat, and cheating” stating their plan to come down on players who team up with cheaters, and more.

Blizzard admitted that cheating in Overwatch 2 is a problem and has “actioned over 50,000 accounts” since the game launched and starting in Season 3 they will be actively identifying players that purposely team up with players who are regularly flagged as cheaters, and will also face potential discipline.

Overwatch 2 will also have improved protection for streamers, as the issue of Stream sniping continues to be a problem, and in Season 3 they will be “introducing new streaming protection features that should be a huge step toward enabling content creators to share Overwatch 2 with their fans safely.”

Blizzard is encouraging players to report any disruptive or problematic behaviour in their matches.

New Xbox Update Helps Reduce Environmental Impact



Xbox Scarlett

Microsoft’s goal to be a carbon-negative, water-positive, and zero-waste company by 2030 is a celebrated one, and plans are already underway with a new Xbox update that will make sure the console can use the most renewable energy, according to Xbox Wire.

According to Microsoft, the update will help by optimizing updates and downloads to run at a time when the console can use the most renewable energy, meaning your Xbox will schedule a game, app, or OS update at specific times during the a maintenance window, with those times aimed at when higher proportions of electricity are at lower-carbon sources on the electric grid.

Thus, instead of your Xbox console waking up between the nightly maintenance window hours of 2am-6am, it will instead wake up at a time when it can use the most renewable energy through your local energy grid. Also, the update reduces power consumption while the Xbox console is off and will not affect the performance, gameplay, or the console’s ability to receive an overnight update.

With the setting, it decreases fossil fuel dependency and CO2 emissions and could also save a few bucks for gamers.

There is also an “Active hours” setting.

Read more about the update, the benefits, and get additional details at the Xbox Wire website.
