I really love the update! It's awesome that you only stick to one category and the roles are fair(2 healers, 2 tanks and 2 dps). I also like that you got stricter with the consequences. It's awesome really however I've been facing some problems lately and I would appreciate it that you could change it. A lot of players leave the match in tge middle of a comp play and in the end there's 6 players against 3 and this isn't fair at all because when we lose our rank still gets lower. And guess what this happened to me over 4 times and my rank got drastically lower. It's not a fair match. Okay the player who left need to face some consequences. But why do the player who played fair and stayed until the match ended get lower? (I am not english so I hope ya'll understand what I mean)

Thanks papa Jeff, for not giving up on the game. I haven’t placed in comp in a few seasons (I placed every season since the first until like 13) because it’s just not worth it anymore. After this update idk maybe I’ll like it better? (Still haven’t tried it yet lol)

Sorry but i think this adds more pressure to the player? If i choose tank and am not doing the best, i can't switch with a dps teammate. I am now locked in and will be shamed by my entire team lmfao.
Mytherthunder 10 horas atrás
Then try to be good at the game? practice thats why you start at bronze and dont focus on the rest of the team focus on yourself and how you can develop as a better tank/dps/healer

Role queue is AWFUL. It’s way too restricting. Let’s say I’m not doing great as a tank and I would feel more comfortable playing a healer... Well, too bad, I’m screwed and so is my team because we can’t swap mid-game. Or DPS isn’t getting kills or playing the proper heroes to counter the opposing team. No one else can switch to DPS and help put out damage. There have been many games where I’ve swapped off a tank or healer, to another DPS and it helped to have extra damage to push through the choke or cap the point. I also like to play different heroes depending on the map. That is out the window now. I get it that team comp is important and 2-2-2 can be a good strategy, but being forced into it and having no way out is an awful idea. I don’t understand who the target audience is for this...?The cons outweigh the pros by a lot. I’m really not a fan.

Honestly think the role que is so dumb, I have to load in a game for so long. And the tier list is also really dumb. Add back the normal comp que, it was better that way.

THIS IS HORRIBLE! Get rid of role queue and let us pick the character we want like it used to be! I mainly play competitive but play the other modes as well and have NEVER felt pressure to pick a character! Overwatch is/was my favorite game but if you don't get rid of role queue I WON'T be playing this game as much! ROLE QUEUE is not as fun do away with it!

last season I ended up 2226 highest sr 2689 and this season I I had 5/5 as a DPS at 2090 WTF? Tank 4/5 win placed at 2108 again wtf? And support my main role 4/5 placed at 2200 seriously what is this? Winning most of the games and again I gad lower rank than previous season overall and in each role. I really want to buy a new account in order to have my MMR and SR reset for REAL. Right now there is no reason for placements every season because they are not placement matches. Blizzard you really need to fix this, because it destroys the game experience. I won’t buy a new account because I have all the skins and levels, but I am not even trying to win for real, competitive is QP with a badge so I will just have fun.

I think if I make it 4-2 class optional 4 between damage and tank. class 2 support. Even the search will be faster.

I don’t like this. The main problem is that you are not aware of the map that you are queuing for. For example, I do really well as widowmaker on Hanamura. However, if I’m playing on Ilios, I do really well as Orisa. If I could see the map I was queuing for, it would be more beneficial for my team. Oh, and before someone says “just play quickplay classic lmao”, arcade sucks. You get less exp (which is good for blizzard cause you get less lootboxes) and you can’t earn trophies/achievements. And arcade is a bigger sweat fest than comp when an event is going on.

@JP MUSIK I hope that it isn't limited, for competitive this is brilliant I just don't know how I feel about quickplay but we'll see. I just hope you can play classic quickplay whenever, if not then it might ruin it for me 😕

@Bethany Edwards To me it sounds like its permanent and I hope its the case. I don't see how classic overwatch in the arcade would be limited

Can you guys please nerf Baptiste immortality field? It's like another man on the field. It's op when there's so many shielded tanks. Esp with the ult nerf, Baptiste needs to be looked at. Some DPS players waste their ults going against Baptiste. It's really not fair.

I really hate the fact that I can’t change my hero I main tank and heals so I like to alternate especially if I know I could be a better tank than someone else or maybe better heals and we could switch. Personally I don’t like the update. It makes me want to delete the game because it’s not fun anymore.

@Anthony Millan Jr That's the bug I'm talking about. It happened to me in QP with characters being grayed out Its not intended and blizzard is working on fixing the problem
Anthony Millan Jr
Anthony Millan Jr 3 dias atrás
@JP MUSIK First of all let's establish that I'm playing on PS4. Not sure if this is native to that or if it's across all platforms. Second, 2 2 2 for AI is not like the comp one. Test it for yourself. Load into a game, and the minute any 2 characters from a select role get picked, the rest of the characters get greyed out. If they were gonna do this they may as well have let us pick our role before the match starts instead of having to insta lock a role not knowing or being considerate to what others actually want to play. The thing that made AI fun before was the flexibility with picks, as the bots are already broken as it stands. I just want them to change this and i don't know where to voice my concern other than their video here. It's very frustrating and honestly kills 80 percent of this game for me overnight.

Quit playing because the comp balance was always 20/80 just like at 8:08 and I do like to win every once in awhile. Sad that it took how many years to implement a feature that should have been with launch? I am downloading right now to see if it has any improvement, keeping my fingers crossed.

U still can. I believe ur misunderstanding role lock and role queue. Role lock is the quick play bug that happened when the game updated where after 2 of one role was picked, it became disabled. Role queue allows u to pick the role you want to play and pick only the heroes in that role

"There's a lot going on here". No there isn't. You're just forcing the meta on everyone who doesn't play arcade. And comparing Shakespearean sonnets with creativity within a video game team composition? You're literally dumbing the game down and forcing characters further into their "designated roles". How is this comparable to Shakespear? Your argument is detrimental.

There's to much pressure for your dumb brains to choose from the selection of characters. So instead of multiple characters we've narrowed it down to 3 choices!

i've had a few too many games where i've had to switch up mid match and take over someone else's role while leaving us without a tank or support because people simply cannot do their job the way they THINK they can and then allowing us to advance or defend better and then getting bashed on while everyone else thinks "it was me that won it for us"...
