Overwatch 2 will change the game and will face teams of 5 against 5.
In the last hours, Blizzard has turned the Overwatch gaming community upside down. The new video game in the series, Overwatch 2, will change its competitive approach and the games will be carried out in team matches of 5 against 5. This change is very important on many levels, since until now the title was played 6v6. The first reactions to these changes they have not been long in coming.
Beyond the good reception from the community In general, there is a very specific sector of users who it is not calm at all: the professional players. These esports workers, especially those who handle characters with the tank role (now only one can be chosen), have publicly shown their concern about these changes. “Any fellow tank player scared by his job? “asked Poko.
Poko, Frdwnr, Gator, Hadi and others have shown your dissatisfaction with this decision. The problem is not only that the game removes one of the characters that they control the best and have to learn to dominate others, but that the teams they will need one less player to compete. What’s more, professional gamers are very angry because they claim that Blizzard he has not contacted them in any moment.
“It is incredibly disrespectful to make this decision and completely eliminate a role for which people gave years of their lives to achieve it; Not all of your favorite tank players will disappear, but many will. And pro players were not warned of this nor were they asked for their postureFrdwnr explained. Disappointment has been the most repeated sentiment among players.
“Imagine spending 5 years perfecting your role … Just to have it removed knowing that your role does not translate into another, and you are expected to give it your all until the end, “reflected Gator. What’s more, Hadi commented that it makes no sense that the decision is not tested with professional players:” Really frustrating that these things can be decided simply with a normal player trying it out, without asking to high-ranking or professional players. “
Some players have reacted to complaints from these professionals saying that the vast majority of the community it is not professional and these changes were necessary. Be that as it may, a few weeks ago we learned that the Overwatch saga was losing Jeff Kaplan and Aaron Keller is now the director of Overwatch 2. By the way, keep in mind that Overwatch is celebrating: offer and rewards in the game.
