Ever found yourself at the end of a round in Overwatch to have someone hit you with “gg ez” in chat? Well now Blizzard is trying out a new method of encouraging Overwatch sportsmanship by replacing the put down with something more humorous instead.
When typing “gg ez” in the PTR, Overwatch players found that the message was instead returning something entirely different.
