Just under a week ago, Overwatch analyst Yiska noted that suspensions were incoming soon. Sure enough, Blizzard has delivered and provided a Discipline Tracker that lists which OWL players have infractions and what actions have been taken on them.
However, there is skepticism on whether the punishments are severe enough. The Bench Mob has reported that the company responsible for investigating the infractions is the same used back in June when Lee “Happy” Jung-woo was found to have boosted for 3 days and made $80 USD.
While there may be disgreement on whether the punishments are appropriate, Blizzard has taken a public stance on the matter.
Overwatch League's official Discipline Tracker notes are listed below and can be found here:
Throughout the 2019 season we will maintain a list of players who are disciplined for infractions of the Overwatch League rules of competition and code of conduct.
As players join the Overwatch League, the league office conducts a full review of their conduct and, where appropriate, takes disciplinary action. While the league reviews each case on its own, key factors informing the level of discipline include both the severity and recency of the actions under review. During the season, the league office will continue to evaluate infractions and take action as needed.
The following list does not include players who are not currently under contract with an Overwatch League team but might face suspension or fines should they return to league play. In addition, players who have previously served penalties while playing in Contenders are generally not subject to further discipline upon joining the Overwatch League.
