How Dota 2’s New Overwatch System will help the Community?
Last year, Valve announced that the organization will be bringing the Overwatch system to Dota 2 to minimize toxicity to a maximum level. However, it did not come out until a few days ago. With the recent update in the game, Valve introduced the Overwatch system. The system has previously been working in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive and Valve decided to implement it in Dota 2 as well.
The Overwatch system actually lets a player report a specific part or play of the game to the judges, which makes decision making easier. Also, it includes the community itself to pass out the decisions. Just like in CSGO, higher-ranked members of Dota 2 will get a chance to moderate the reports submitted by players through the Overwatch system. It is then in their control to pass a verdict at the end. In this way, Valve reduces its workload and the community stays toxicity free as well.
There are plenty of ways through which the new Overwatch System will help the community of Dota 2. In the following article, we will discuss how Valve is trying to improve the community of Dota 2 and how the new system is going to help.
