Blizzard balances OW with ONLY the Pros in mind. That top to bottom way of balancing is why OW1 isnt fun for the majority anymore. Hell, wasnt the Pros involved in making a patch that made it to Live?
If the Pros werent the cause, then the game would be still old OW, all 3 roles would still matter instead of DPS reigning supreme, QP & Arcade wouldnt be plagued with Comp tryhards, or better yet, all the Pro-intended patches wouldve been exclusive to Comp, be completely separate from QP & Arcade. That wouldve been a nice balance.
Name one other game that abandons 99% of its playerbase. EVO is huge, yet every fighting game franchise thats apart of it arent outright unplayable for everyone except the minority that knows every single combo.
Alot of the game’s problems right now are the Pros’ fault. I long since had enough of playing as a real Tank or Healer & anticipate Blizzard’s FPS direction being fully realized. That “can’t beat them, join them” expression hasnt been so on-point.
OW2 caters to the Pros more, but the rest of us arent abandoned this time. So these Pros are hypocrites.
