I’m very distressed right now and I feel the need to talk and get this out there. Telling people to go “Kill themselves” is NEVER ok.
In this day of age, when so many people have mental health problems, and day to day issues, they find a escape and a solution in Overwatch. Some people it gives them a release from it all, they can go home, forget about everything and just chill by having fun with the game. Some kids who are still learning the world around them love playing Overwatch with the families, with their friends etc.
So today, on a game I played, I had a guy who was the only guy voicing his opinion in team chat. Telling us how he was carrying us, trying to direct us etc. Now, we didn’t do badly, in fact we were pretty close to winning, but the second we lost the game he told everyone “Go kill yourselves, all of you, go kill yourselves”.
This is shocking. This guy, seemed pretty mature in his voice literally said the next best thing to wishing someone had cancer in my opinion. I messaged him, and told him by no means necessary should he EVER say that. He messaged back saying he “understood” but “if people take it to heart than that’s their problem”, and “people shouldn’t throw the game then”. As far as I’m concerned, if someone throws the game, then I’ll report and move on. Never would I wish someone dead, let alone tell them to suicide.
Now I know, maybe I’m blowing it all out of proportion, but it’s a issue which should be addressed by devs and taken care of somehow. I did send a “report”, but is that really enough?
People are literally talking about how hot she is and how they want to fuck her in game etc. She’s,....a character in a video game !
