Overwatch adds positive player endorsements and the looking for group tool
Who’s a good-tempered Overwatch player? You! Yes, you are! And you know this because you just got an endorsement from some other player in the game.
Wait, what are endorsements? These come from a new system that Blizzard introduced with yesterday’s patch to encourage gamers to play nice with each other. Now players can wing endorsements at each other as “a way to acknowledge a positive impact on your gaming experience.” The endorsement rating is available to view on any player’s career screen or the group menu, offering a quick way to tell who’s on the up-and-up.
Another much-anticipated feature that came with the patch is the new looking for group tool: “Looking for group allows you to find like-minded players before you queue to make sure you have the kind of Overwatch experience you want! Things like specifying what game mode want to play, preferring voice chat, and knowing that a player wants to play a certain role before you go into battle together goes a long way toward solid hero compositions and team work.”
