New Forum Platform And Features Coming Soon

General Discussion
Hello everyone,

Some time ago, we announced that the Overwatch forums would be transitioned over a to brand-new platform, which will allow us to implement several new features like real-time notifications, a new flagging feature, trust levels, and more. We rolled out these forums in North America a while ago and since then, we have been hard at work to get them ready for an international and multilingual release in Europe. Today, we’re pleased to share that the new forums will go live for all European language communities very soon.

Many of the aforementioned features will be available when you log in for the first time, while others will be earned as your trust levels increase. Players who contribute, rather than trolling or spamming, will be granted additional features and permissions. This may include the ability to share link previews, images, gifs, embedded video posting, and even create wiki posts. Maintaining an increased trust level requires that players remain active and respectful.

Also, it’s important to keep in mind that older posts and threads will not be migrated over to the new forums. However, these will still be readable for a short period of time after the transition. If you have favorite conversations, please be sure to save them if you wish to revisit those old memories.

Thank you for your passion and commitment to the Overwatch community and for your patience as we find new ways to build a positive, welcoming experience for all of our players. Keep an eye on the forums for more information about the rollout, and stay dialed in on PlayOverwatch.com, and our Twitter and Facebook profiles for more news and information!
