Aim-Botting Is Rampant in Overwatch and is Silently Killing the Game

Turns out Sombra isn't the only one hacking In Overwatch. Aim-botting, sometimes referred to as 'hacking' by frustrated players is something that any skilled player has been accused of. Akin to the aim assist of consoles, it is difficult to detect and often based on overlay rather than any sort of code insertion.
But one thing's for sure. It's a plague. Hop onto any older PC shooter and it will be rampant.
Apparently that plague is a bigger problem in Overwatch than we'd thought.

Can we actually get a Jon Snow character in Overwatch that yells 'Winter is Coming!' just like McCree does with, 'It's High Noon!'?



Please?

These are the following phrases you might encounter if you're one of those players that types "GG EZ" after taking home the win.
-Great game, everyone!
-It was an honor to play with you all. Thank you.
-Good game! Best of luck to you all!
-I'm wrestling with some insecurity issues in my life but thank you all for playing with me.
-C'mon, Mom! One more game before you tuck me in. Oops mistell.
-Gee whiz! That was fun. Good playing!
-Well played. I salute you all.
-I could really use a hug right now.
-It's past my bedtime. Please don't tell my mommy.
-Ah shucks... you guys are the best!
-I feel very, very small... please hold me...
-For glory and honor! Huzzah comrades!
-Mommy says people my age shouldn't suck their thumbs.
-I'm trying to be a nicer person. It's hard, but I am trying, guys. Wishing you all the best.

You died? Ah, that's sh*tty man. Best of luck making a mad dash back to defend the first point on Anubis without her.

This is kind of awesome. Redditor Calycae says that two pros bet their very professional careers on the firmly held, and shared belief that 17-year-old Geguri is a plain old cheater in Overwatch. Blizzard reportedly confirmed that Geguri wasn't cheating, and now those two dudes are fresh out of the game..

They just couldn't believe that she's really this good. The young lady's stats are truly astounding. She boasts an 80% win rate, and a KDA of 6.31. 

Korean site, Inven, says that much of the suspicion players hold stems from Geguri's ridiculous accuracy. You can watch her in action, in the clip below:
