Blizzard Issues First Permanent Ban In Competitive Overwatch

Posted on by Ryan

Australia wasn’t the only region to have an entire team be disqualified from Overwatch Contenders Trials. China has now been hit with a huge scandal involving account boosting which has been a long-standing problem in the region.

According to OW Beacon (translated from Weibo) Team Stop Feeding, who went undefeated during OWCT, has been disqualified for numerous players account boosting. The player “tudouxi” also received a permanent ban while the other 5 players on the team received a year-long ban.

While this is good news for Alter-Ego, who finished in third place before being promoted to the top two, also had one of their players receive a one-year ban. A player from Team for Victory also received a one-year ban.
