Could We See 2-3-2 In The Future

In an interview with pc games in March, Jeff Kaplan says that he liked 3-2-1. And also says they have experimented with 7v7 etc. Could they be holding this back also with overwatch 2?

P.S I mean 2 tanks, 3 dps and 2 healers


No, Jeff has already said here on the forums that it’s too much work and financial cost to change the game to 232 at this point.

I just don’t wanna search and quote, but if someone feels like it, it would be cool for you to read.


I think in this kind of set up the support role would be pressured or overwhelmed by any diving compositions and their damage would all need to be toned down to some extent.

here ya go!


Thank you.

7v7 players is something you decide in the early stages of game development, they already chose 6v6 and are way down the road to change it back I guess.

That’s the point they are way down the road on ow1 but since a new game is coming out. It’s there chance

7 Players??? WTF
You really want to make the game worse…


It’s for q issues plus they are pretty much revamping every hero in some way in overwatch 2

Maybe remove RQ then.

No 2-2-2 is good it’s just that everyone wants to play dps and there R a ton of dps and they are pretty much revamping the whole system anyway

We have an LFG system for people wanting balanced compositions, we still went with forced RQ resulting in various of issues that were way harder to find a solution for than for Open Queue.

Some people dont like talking to random strangers


Well, they could make it so people can switch freely between 222 and 132.

âś… Modified 1-3-2 that can be 1-1-2-2

I know why you want that but it wouldn’t be enogugh. Consider >75% want dps.

132 is the way go. increasing to 7 players will only cause more hussle. 6 players is already quite too much.

Open Queue nor Role Queue has anything to do with this?

Even in a Role Queue match you get put with strangers.

With Open Queue LFG it’s exactly the same.

role queue doesn’t require you to talk to anyone at all ever

lfg often does but not always

Would be nice to see it on experimental, but as was already mentioned…


LFG doesn’t require it either, it’s practically an empty argument saying that you have to talk in LFG.

Yeah not always, sure sometimes it does.

Though you can create your own group, and perfectly get it without talking to strangers.

Why are people trying to go against the LFG system whilst it is a great fix already for the 2-2-2 balance that people want.

We can fix the issues that Open Queue brings more easily than those from Role Queue.

But not everyone talks do they?
