The community manager Blizzard’s “AndyB” enters the official Blizzard Forums to defend the team’s decision Monitor 2 to make it big Changes to tanks from the shooter.
The basis of the dispute in this case is the fact that in the sequel the teams will consist of 5 heroes instead of 6, and therefore the developers have to force the use of single tankOverwatch currently includes two characters from this class per team. A novelty that radically changes the game experience and especially for tanks, which will inevitably undergo changes in their skills. Thus, discussions among players in recent months have become very heated, especially among those who use this special class of heroes and those who do not look positively at the upcoming changes.
In a long post, AndyB explains that this is actually a forever change. For example, with only one tank per team, no double-barrier teams would be so hated, i Versions will get a prominent place All in all, on paper, it should benefit the pace of play, with faster clashes, without sacrificing team play, positioning and strategy.
However, it’s also true that it’s hard to get an idea of the “benefits” of the new Overwatch 2 PvP formula without actually seeing it, and in that sense AndyB asks fans to be patient and experience the changes firsthand. Imbalance in expressing an opinion.
“I understand that some of us may have mixed feelings that there will only be one tank on the team, and it would take more than an answer like this to fully convince you that this is a welcome change.Says Community Manager AndyB sui Blizzard Forum.
“To be honest: I understand that you have to play the game and experience it for yourself to be able to give an opinion. As someone who was a fan and player prior to joining the team, I have a lot of sympathy for people who are frustrated with the anticipation of Overwatch 2. I play competitive games regularly and do play tests almost every day, and it’s hard to imagine what it looked like. The experience has changed so you can play many games. “
Fortunately, we won’t have to wait long to find out more. In fact, next week Blizzard will be showing an Overwatch 2 demo match during the Overwatch League major finals. Additionally, starting next year, Overwatch World League will be using the sequel, which means the game could actually hit store shelves during the spring of next year.
