I just don't know what rises to the level of reportable chat.

I've wondered this myself. I know there's some jerkwards that I feel like reporting, but I end up not doing so since "harassment" doesn't really cover it. I guess it's worthwhile just in case they act like bigger asshats later.

That said, I've found, so far, that people haven't been that bad overall (though I've only done Quick Play). I've only seen a few bouts of true douchebaggery. It seems less than what I encountered in LFG/R, but that might be memory fuzzing things up.

competitive mode went live last night.   It's not as enjoyable as quick play for a few reasons.   They say they're going to work on the sudden death issues.  But also just things like having to re-queue or taking a loss because someone on our team left is annoying.

I don't play Overwatch but a lot of the let's players I follow do. It does seem like a fun game (though not for me). I am convinced competitive mode is a mistake, though. Competitive online team games always create weird, toxic subcultures. I can't see how Overwatch will be able to break that trend.

There's a new Overwatch video out. This one teaches us about Bastion:

https://youtu.be/to8yh83jlXg

When I compare the two, I prefer the story videos behind Overwatch to be superior to the WoW cinematics and story. Blizzard still has what it takes to tell a good story, they're just not putting that level of effort into WoW. On the other hand, I can't/won't play Overwatch, and plan to continue to play WoW for a while. There's game and there's story, and their quality isn't always correlated.

I have answered the all important question.  Can you make a basket with a pachimari plush?   Short answer? no.
