Hello heroes. In our most recent update, we made a change to how you can use unlockable voice lines during a match.
Unlockable voice lines can be used freely during the pre-game setup phase of the match. Setup is intended to be a playful phase of the game, so we wanted to give you the opportunity to enjoy your favorite unlockable voice lines without restrictions.
During the match, you always hear your own voice lines, but if you spam a significant amount of voice lines, you might sometimes be the only player hearing them. When this happens, a message will appear in the text chat field when the restriction is taking place and includes the time remaining in seconds before other players will hear your unlockable voice lines again.
Other comms like “Need Healing,” “Group Up,” and all Ping Voice Lines aren’t considered unlockable voice lines and will be controlled by the pre-existing spam protection rules.
We want to keep you up to date on some of the bugs and issues we’re aware of that are affecting the game. This is not a complete list of all currently tracked issues affecting Overwatch 2, rather this is a targeted list of some known specific issues with this release.
We’re sorry for any inconvenience, and we appreciate y’all’s understanding. Our team is working to resolve these issues, and we will provide more information as soon as we have updates!
