Hello i was wondering about the bans and since i never got banned i have some questions. What happens when you got reported and banned in arcade? Also how does the moderators know if you are a aimbot or not?
Getting reported in the Arcade is no different than getting reported in any other part of Overwatch. Reports of hacking (like the aimbot you mention) are handled by a different group than reports of bad behavior (griefing, throwing, harassment, abusive chat, bad battletag).
We don't provide details about what we look for or what we're doing to detect hacking and cheating as it provides the people who are trying to create those hacks and cheats information that can be used against fair players.
The penalties for using hacks and cheats is extremely severe and usually results in a lifetime ban.
