'Avoid as Teammate' Feature Coming in a Future Patch -

Blizzard is testing a new Overwatch feature on the PTR. Called "Avoid as Teammate", players will be able to choose this option from a drop down menu in their Career Profile. According to developers, this "option gives players the ability to craft their online gameplay experience. Up to two players can be selected with this feature. If you use the "Avoid as Teammate option on a player, the matchmaker will no longer place you on a team with the avoided player for one week". 

In addition, "poor teamwork" has been removed from the Report Menu and "Griefing" has been renamed "Gameplay Sabotage".

Other changes currently being tested include:

  • updates to Blizzard World
  • minor Hero updates to Sombra, Mercy and Brigitte
  • Hero tweaks to D.Va, Mei, Reaper, Moira, Zenyatta
  • UI updates
  • bug fixes

You can check out the full PTR update notes on the Overwatch forum.
