‘Overwatch’ Players Are Crashing Servers to Avoid Losses in New Competitive Mode

Overwatch is, without a doubt, the spiritual successor to Team Fortress 2. And part of what makes the new game so much fun is how aggressive Blizzard is toward cheating: if you’re caught you’re banned for life.

Apparently a glitch has been found that lets players crash servers, and they are crashing them when they or their team are losing badly. Blizzard’s response has been to identify the persons responsible and ban their accounts, thus meaning that the rest of us can happily play to win or lose without worrying that the session is going to drop because of some hyper-competitive spoilsport.
