I know it was so that people would stop after 100 levels until event, but disable it only then...i dont wanna level up that much'

Overall, the EXP change should be a benefit to the player base. Had this change been in effect for the Halloween Terror event we would have given out MORE loot boxes. More players would have gotten more stuff...

This change has nothing to do with a desire on our part to drive more or less interest in loot box sales. This change is to prevent players from binge behavior or halting play... and to prevent players who are not close to prestiging from feeling like they somehow missed out on "bonus" items. This change exists to add levity to the leveling experience.

We want you playing Overwatch or not playing Overwatch when you want/don't want to. That's the entire reason for this change... nothing else.
