Overwatch Pros Fined $1000 Over Inappropriate Chat Behavior


The Overwatch League, the face of professional gaming in Overwatch, has issued fines to 2 gamers for writing inappropriate messages throughout a match, unaware that the staff chat was seen to match viewers. Los Angeles Valiant member Jung-won “Lastro” Mun and San Francisco Shock’s Dong-jun “Rascal” Kim have been the recipients of $1000 fines, as reported by The Loadout.

Both fines are listed on the Overwatch League Player Discipline Tracker as instances of “inappropriate chat” throughout a match over a number of immature messages. Lastro typed “sex” and “big dick”, which Rascal adopted with “big dick” and characters that (very loosely) approximate the form of a penis.

You can see their chat, together with the second the place their teammates allow them to know that the chat is seen on stream, within the tweet beneath.

Lastro has since apologized for the incident on Twitter, explaining that he didn’t understand that the chat might be seen by viewers.

For what its value, plainly LA Valiant teammate McGravy is taking it in his stride.

Overwatch not too long ago added a brand new hero called Echo. They would be the last new character added earlier than the upcoming Overwatch 2, which doesn’t have a set launch date but.
