    Just came back to the game and was wondering what this was all about. Sadly I don't play quickplay or competitive, only vs AI. So I don't think I'll ever get an endorsement. Oh well I guess that's what I get for having anxiety. I'll forever be known as that person with 0 endorsements 🙁

  2. I now this video and update was made years ago,but.I just want to say great job on the game,it's very awesome

  3. mr kaplan im doing a biography in school on you so can i ask you what inspierd you to make overwatch thanx

  4. Recognize

  5. Guys if you will agree to this one and from any Mercy fan 1 like=1Mini Short for Mercy

    i was Endorsement level 2 and wanted to play comp. i lost connection so i went to lvl 1, so endorsement can be unfair with connection problems.

  7. 5macgames says:

    the group option is bad on xbox because everyone puts something like 18+ mic needed in quick play or AI, so i just say that mic is optional for my groups

  8. 5macgames says:

    new hero select zuccs, you jumbled the heroes together, making it difficult to see who is where like putting the 2 worst Offense and Defense heroes together

  9. OverReach "Toxicity" the language of sad safe space kids. Press mute end of don't be a soft coward.

  10. Story: I was playing Ana. There was a Genji on my team. Both of out ults were ready. I used it on him. What did he do? He teabagged doing nothing. I messaged him, and then I got suspended from communication for a week. And this is my first day. I don't like genji.

    So you can make your gameplay stats private in-game, but you can be banned for something unrelated to the game you said on social media.

    Um bruh that’s stupid

  14. Symettra’s turrets are still OP
    I also want the old teleporter back
    I didn’t get a chance to put it at a cliff and watch my team fall to their death..

  15. Andre Maguet says:

    When will summer games coming

  16. The endorsement system changes nothing about the gameplay, they need to work on something that helps out the players like stop nerfing and buffing characters that dont need it(mercy, moira, symmetra)

  17. Tom Meyers says:

    so basically they introduced something that console already has since years.

  18. Smoose says:

    My Endorsement Level went down from 2 to 1 and I didn't get silenced or suspended. HELP!

  19. Overwatch team: Ok guys lets give these ppl long awaited things its time for a new defense hero

    Random worker:what if we just remove the defense category

    Jeff kaplan:Ok guys we reworked the categories

  20. since this update, my endorsment level was 4 since im honestly a really kind and fun person, but when i started getting good at widowmaker, ppl were accusing me of aimbot and reporting me for it, i am now endorsment level 2.. im not at all blaming you for putting this feature in, i enjoy it! its just ppl dont beleive me. is there anything i can do about this?

    Endorsements are a gimmick, in the video, they say you are going to reward those who have high endorsements but you have a Endorsement Decay function going on. Despite getting Endorsements and winning games, I still bounce backwards from 3 to 2. I got an endorsement, and at the same time I got my Endorsement level reduced. Kind of counter productive. What is the deal with that?

  24. If my eyes rolled any harder, they would have fallen out of my head and onto my keyboard. Okay folks, I'm about to burst somebody's fragile bubble. The toxic players didn't clean up, they didn't start playing better or start behaving because of new social tools. They simply aren't there anymore. Where did they go? PlayerUknown Battlegrounds and Fortnite. When they come back, you'll notice, I promise.

  25. Renzy Rob says:

    Symmetra is broken af,her turrets have more hp and hard to shoot.

  26. kingpinlaker says:

    private profile is the worst idea ever

  27. Wow symmetra??? Attack?? i might just come back to the game

  28. Wow symmetra??? Attack?? i might just come back to the game

  29. Super Fly says:

  31. Daniel says:

    thanks for buffing symmetra and ruining the whole game

  32. Brook Poppe says:

    I love the new update

  33. OruenMercury says:

    Yo yo. I liked the way you killed me. Ya ya.

  34. The Darkness says:

    Quick question: How will your example for sportsmanship correlate to console players as they don't have a global text?

  35. Can I not have 220 ping Pretty pls Jeff.

  36. Make Symmetra great again please her aim is now so bad pleeeeaaaase ?

  37. The slow on syms turrets are a bit op

  38. Pers Godiva says:

    I love the endorsement feature 🙂 It feels like giving your teammates an added pat on the back.
    Just as an idea though (and I know ppl have mentioned that a lot before): could you maybe add certain social features, for people who play on European and Asian servers? Almost nobody uses mics there, probably because the different languages just make it sort of hard to coordinate. Some easy ways to say "come with me" or "stop" or similar easy phrases would be highly appreciated.

  39. Ben Dean says:

    please stop reworking symmetra over and over and fix mccree

  40. The lfg thing made my games worse as an introverted non mic user

  41. Nerf symetra or I am uninstalling the game Jeff NERF HER!!!?????
