Players are taking advantages of the Skirmish mode by being in active (AFK) to farm for XP Points. These XP points will then be used to buy Loot Crates for skins and Rare items. But Blizzard are taking at a stance on people using this exploit and warns players from doing this type of behaviour on their official Overwatch forum.

Is it OK To Farm XP Points in Custom Game?

Initially, players were confused if it was OK to go on Custom Game and gain lots of Experience Points. But Blizzard has finally confirms that it isn’t OK and if players are exploiting the Custom Game mode to farm for XP, they will be severely punished.

If you create a Custom Game that in any way encourages players to gain experience while inactive, you risk having your account banned.

It seems Jeff is very disappointed in players using this exploit and knew from the start that players will take an advantage of the XP farming.

They encourages players to report other players who are inactive trying to farm XP for the benefit of loot crates.

Finally, the more players that will exploit the Skirmish Game mode by farming for XP (Experience Points), Blizzard will have no choice by turning off the experience gains in Custom Game.

To fast forward a bit, the end of the escalation plan will result in experience gain being turned off in Custom Game.
