The Overwatch League aspires to be the pinnacle of global and professional esports competition. As such, it is imperative that the league’s rules be clear, comprehensive, and accessible. Since the league’s inception, teams and players have been provided with the Overwatch League Official Rules and are always expected to be aware of and adhere to them.
The Overwatch League’s Official Rules include a detailed Code of Conduct, which all players, team managers, and owners must follow. The Code of Conduct is designed to ensure the integrity of the game; to safeguard the public image of the league, its players, teams, and owners; and to provide a competitive game environment that is free from harassment and discrimination.
When the league office becomes aware of any alleged violations of the Official Rules or Code of Conduct, we investigate and share our findings with the individuals and teams involved. Those individuals have the opportunity to present evidence and contextualize their actions, which the league office takes into account when determining any disciplinary rulings.
We appreciate the support of our team members, owners, and Overwatch League fans as we continue to build a truly global, professional, and inclusive league.
