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 crew chat was seen to match viewers.

Each 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 “intercourse” and “massive dick”, which Rascal adopted with “massive dick” and characters that (very loosely) approximate the form of a penis.

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