Just beat Halo 2. I enjoyed how it opened up the story and kinda' talked more about what's going with the Halos and it was nice to see some relatable Covenant stuff with the Arbiter.

I think Chief and Cortana have a funny back and forth and I like seeing the antics Chief comes up with to solve situations. Looking forward to playing Halo 3.

Almost at my 4th banned Overwatch account. The last one was perma-banned when Mauga was released in competitive - I won 21 games in a row, and then right after that I was forever banned for "playing outside of my skill range." Because they decided to put this new account in silver instead of low-mid Masters to start - and this comes after the previous account was told "You will need to make a new account to continue playing Overwatch" after it was banned from people endlessly false reporting it when they lost.

This time it's people false reporting for 'abusive language' and when asked Blizzard what was said (I don't even use the chat, it's muted 99% of the time, with the voice channel blocked as well) they have no reply and say "We will not discuss this".


God, I ****ing hate Blizzard. I was right to call them out back in 2018, and now I'm glad the entire internet is on my side saying how shite they have become.


I should mention, my original account - which I had played since BETA, that had every single cosmetic unlocked - was silenced for 360 days, and then with around 20 days left in the silence, was permanently banned for, once again, abusive chat...despite not being able to use ANY communication channels. When I brought this up, with proof, support ignored it and said they no longer wish to communicate over this issue and will not reply further and that the ban is being upheld. Literally had sent them my drivers license, phone number, multiple screenshots proving the account couldn't even use chat when it was banned (and not that I used it before, aside from playing with friends). I should note, I have a folder with hundreds of screenshots of me with 4-5 gold medals every single game, and yet they had demoted me from low GM to silver over a single season, then matched me with people leaving every 3/4 games, or straight up griefing and walling in spawn. These people, of course, were never banned.

/rant. **** Blizzard. My account now is called "BoyCottBlizz" because the last account was "FECKBlizz" which they of course reverted to "player" despite people constantly giving me endorsements and praising it.


Oh, I forgot a good one. I stomped a 4-stack of players years ago with Junkrat... and they reported me for aimbotting. Told them I have thousands of hours playing TF2, and Junkrat's projectiles are literally the easiest thing to aim, and, surprise surprise, the account was suspended a day later. This was only in Diamond too, and it was because I hit a /two/ airshots on a Pharah. I guess **** me for being even remotely skilled at the game, haha. Blizzard made sure the suspension lasted a few days past the expiration date of the replay, so I couldn't even save it to show how BS it was.

I actually understand where they're coming from. When Overwatch was good, it was gooooooooooooooood.

It's hard to let a good thing go, even if it sucks now.

I love playing the actual game, and I'm really good at it /humblebrag/. It's everything I love about a FPS, especially the teamwork aspect - however, the company sucks ass, and they make baffling balance changes or completely disrespect their player base because of greed. Thankfully it doesn't cost anything to make a new account, so I've done so a few times because I'd still like to play. It's just incredulous to me that I can play TF2 since 2007, never receive any warnings or bans and never once had an issue playing in servers, but in Overwatch you get banned for being 'too good for the arbitrary rank' they decide to stick you in. I've seen plenty of players in plat/diamond that absolutely should not be, and plenty that should be in high GM (and they aren't smurfs).

A company as massive as Blizzard shouldn't be ruining their own game as they have been since the announcement of OW2, which, ended up being literally the first game repackaged in order to force players to purchase things they had previously unlocked for free, with the most greedy battle-pass of any live service game running currently.


I'm almost certain Blizzard has my address/ip/name in the system to monitor and then subsequently ban ever since I called them out on Twitter YEARS ago and got quite a significant amount of replies. Call me paranoid, but I wouldn't put it past them to blacklist players who point out their racism/sexism to the masses.



EDIT: My account was un-suspended today - and it immediately was given two warnings before I even played a single match. Meaning someone, or a group of people, have been mass reporting me while I couldn't even login or play for the past 3 weeks. Great that Blizzard does nothing to prevent people abusing their report system.


EDIT 2: Playing after my account was unsuspended - my endorsement level was reset to 0, which means you cannot communicate in chat at all/. I just got a WARNING once again for "abusive chat" which is...literally, physically impossible because I CAN'T EVEN SAY A SINGLE WORD. This company is a ****ing joke that they allow these dumbass reports to go unfiltered and then perma-ban accounts for it.

Since my post on the 20th - I am now suspended - the reason they list 'abusive chat.'

I have literal video and photo proof that the account cannot physically chat, because they lowered the endorsement level to 0, removing the ability to communicate in ANY channel - as well as I left both the team chat/all chat channels as soon as I logged in every single game (to not hear the literal shit-stained whining that happens every match), saying not a single word, not even a "GG" or "Thanks" in chat (because once again, the account was BARRED FROM ANY AND ALL COMMUNICATIONS...). I was among the top 2 scorers in every single game I played - and I have never left a single match early, despite because matched with full blown bots sitting afk in spawn. Blizzard are absolutely ****ing scumbags who are tracking anything I say negative about them outside of the game, lmfao. What a sad ****ing husk of a company.

Is there literally any recourse I can legally take /s I know there's not, but it's so ****ing scummy that they can do things like this legally, abusing their players and taking away their accounts for absolutely no reason. I had over 300 gigs of videos from my previous account recording every single match, but they refuse to review any of it.


Also had them straight up lie to me in a human response I had gotten to a previous ticket I sent months ago, so that's another L for them.

It's not like it would make them remove a permanent ban anyways though - I did go through and lower the quality of some of the matches to upload to Youtube, but in the end it takes waaaaay too long, and only maybe 1/10 matches is even worth watching again - even for improving my own gameplay. The rest are literally I/my team completely stomping on wood rank players who somehow got matched against me, or my team losing in minutes with maybe 2-3 kills being a completely unwinnable shitshow no matter how good I do, or could even do now.

Their garbage balance system matches better players consistently with worse, in order to make a more 'balanced' game. So you're really only rewarded with decent team mates if you are less than what they determine average to be, which is probably one of the worst feeling matchmaking systems you could implement in a game like this. At least in something like Halo, you can absolutely carry your team if you have someone majo0rly slacking. In this, you're playing 4 VS 5, and essentially losing any one of your team mates means you will almost NEVER win the uphill battle if they decide "hey, I'm going to sit in spawn or just run out solo and feed the entire match now!". Was less egregious in 6 v 6, unless it was your tanks throwing.

Also, hilariously, at the exact minute they sent the suspension email, they sent me another begging me to purchase the battle pass, and then ANOTHER telling me I've played for 5 hours 40 minutes this season. That's how long it takes to get suspended twice I guess.


EDIT: And now, with 20 days remaining in the suspension, they permanently banned my battle.net account. **** Blizzard .

I've been addicted to Metroid Dread for the last few months. I wasn't a big fan of it when it came out, but something changed in my brain and now I can't put it down and I absolutely love it.
