Everything About Overwatch's Terms of Service

Overwatch is a multi-player game in which each side has six heroes. Although these types of games are very popular, they can also create issues when players don't follow the rules of the game, something which has happened with Overwatch. If this has happened to you (or if you have any other issue with Overwatch), it may be a good idea to analyze  to figure out what your rights are.

However, looking through all the legalese on the Overwatch TOS page, and the various pages it links to, can be daunting. This is where DoNotPay can step in and help you figure out all the legal violations in . DoNotPay can also help you to get compensation for any complaints you may have as a user of Overwatch.

Complaints People Have Had Against Overwatch

It may be helpful to know what kinds of complaints other people have had with  so that you know that you are not the only one who is raising a certain issue.

  1. Lack of body positivity: Nearly all the female heroes on Overwatch are slim, with just one muscular female hero added after the complaints rolling in.
  2. Oversexualized female poses: This objection has also been raised to Overwatch's female heroes. Some changes were made by the parent company, but the over-sexualization still continues.
  3. Cultural stereotypes: Some of the characters' outfits in Overwatch seem to be taken from specific cultures such as Native American/Egyptian cultures. However, they are inappropriately combined with other cultural depictions.
  4. Toxic community: Given that this game requires players to work as a team, it is possible for some players to become "griefers" who harass other players by working against their own teammates or using the game in unintended ways. Players may also behave in racist/discriminating/threatening/obscene ways.

Analyzing Overwatch’s Terms of Service

Apart from knowing what complaints others have had against Overwatch, it may also be useful to you to analyze Overwatch's terms of service and see if there are any violations there. Do these TOS deprive you of any of your basic rights? Did you unknowingly sign away your rights merely by installing the game? Here are some of the clauses in Overwatch's terms of service that you should know about:

Disputes Between Users

Overwatch's TOS links to their code of conduct which indicates what action Overwatch will take with users who do the following:

  • Behave in a racist manner.
  • Try to trade accounts.
  • Behave in an inappropriately sexual/violent way.
  • Threaten other users.
  • Give out the personal information of other users/employees.
  • Behave in a discriminatory manner towards others due to their sexual orientation or gender identity.
  • Post cheats/hacks.
  • Impersonate Blizzard employees (Blizzard is the company that makes Overwatch.)
  • Post unreleased content.
  • Behave in an obscene manner.
  • Use inappropriate language.
  • Attack specific religions.

In most of these cases, the person doing the above things is only temporarily banned from the system and will be able to log on again after some time. However, in some cases, Overwatch does permanently ban them.

If you have had a negative experience with a user on Overwatch and you feel that Overwatch could have done more, such as permanently banning them, you can file a complaint and ask for compensation.

Intellectual Property

Let's say you come up with a great idea for some changes to Overwatch and then you upload them when you are playing the game. Overwatch can use your ideas without paying you. If this has happened to you, you can write a complaint and demand compensation.

Dispute Resolution

Overwatch's TOS contain a link to their dispute resolution policy which states the following:

  • Any dispute should be negotiated between the user and Overwatch for at least 30 days before segueing into binding arbitration.
  • You can't take Overwatch to court, and you give up the right to a jury trial.
  • If you have any issue with Overwatch, it has to be resolved via arbitration in which you sit down with Overwatch representatives in the presence of an arbitrator who, in this case, will be JAMS—judicial arbitration and mediation services.
  • Although arbitration does not take place in a court of law, it is legally binding, and you have to abide by the decision of the arbitrator.

These and many other clauses are included in the Overwatch TOS agreement. It's a good idea to examine these and know what you're going up against when you file a complaint against Overwatch.

However, as it turns out, you don't have to go through the entire process on your own. You can use DoNotPay's Analyze Terms and Services product to make sense of Overwatch's TOS.
