Happy Friday to the OW forums

I tried, but the other team ganked me twenty times and rode all the fun to the end of the map. I’m walking a pinata around the water fountain atm.

Not to be found in OW, except in the minds of the smurfs who gank me in every match.


“Say bacon one more time…”

Surely with this mindset you are gonna suffer in any game u play

I wouldn’t conflate understanding with ability. There are plenty of people out there who have a deep understanding of their game of choice, but are not competitive participants themselves.


You yourself must be owl player then . Elitist mind at its best .


They’re just living up to their name.


Well goodluck on your climbing then. Maybe one day when youll be in the higher ranks the balance is gonna start to improve. But then again, no hopes of that when you guys play favorites with heroes.

I don’t think Andy balances the game… They’re just communicating with us.


From what I know CMs relay info from the devs to the community and also the opposite, take feedback from the community and give it to the devs.

Unless blizz does it a little differently.

Of course if anything was a problem, would a person that isnt as good at the game even be qualified to determine what is genuine stuff that Should be relayed - and what is just some low rank complaining about a literal troll pick character thats easy to deal with if someone just told them how? I dont think so.

Dude you kinda just ruined this positive thread with your arrogant complaining, hope you’re proud


Yeah, that is kinda sad. But I wasnt going to make a whole new thread to ask him that.

I just want the game to be in good hands and when I hear they got bronzes doing the stuff I am not surprised why its in the state its in. No hate to the guy himself, he might not just have enough free time to climb higher like most adults.

But it is strange to hear that they just freely hire people who arent pros.

Given that Andy isn’t Geoff Goodman, since their jobs are simply not that same, obviously he’s not making balance changes.
This much should be obvious even to you.
You’ve proven with what you said that you neither understand nor deserve any conversation about balance. All this does is make you look like a negative person.

Andy has been great recently on these forums and I would hate if people like you drive him away from communication. This kind of speak doesn’t help anything.


Trust me, if they only hired pros the game would be even worse. If anything, you should be happy that there’s a bronze/silver player on the team, since it’s important to have a variety of skill levels within the team so they can provide accurate feedback for all ranks. IIRC Jeff Kaplan was a diamond tank player, and there was at least a few in masters and above so it’s not like the whole team is made of gold and below.


Careful, you might get false flagged and the moderators delete your post, inept as they are.

Based andyb this is what we like to see


Unfortunately higher rank does not automatically mean more superior understanding in game development and all that surrounds it. Plenty of high skill players can have genuinely terrible feedback and ideas.

The OWL Experimental earlier in the year in March that consisted of player suggested changes from the pros and “influencers” that were largely received to be a joke from the community should prove that. They had a chance to really make some big and impactful changes and what did they do? A whole lot of nothing. A clear missed opportunity. Made a lot of very small adjustments, along with biased tweaks towards favored skill heroes and a lack of attention towards the unfavored.

The point is that you need a mix from all perspectives, because the vast majority of the playerbase is not high skill at all. And not being good or great at a game doesn’t mean you can’t comprehend and understand ideas.

Also, just as a side note, the reason why across the industry less and less developers interact with the community is due to the attitude that some players have. A lot of “feedback” ends up being non-constructive, vague, full of emotion, and at times too personal.


He could at least tell us more about the Sombra rework. He mustve seen everyone being so worried on here.

Why doesnt he come in and say “Dont worry guys, shes still good - I tried her myself!” ?

It just makes you think that its because they know she will be awful. As we all know aswell. Since she is not one of blizzards favorites. Been least picked for ages and no cares given. Ana always #1 most picked on all ranks, no cares given. Just favoritism is all.

Its about time some official has actually answered on that. But you know they wont.

Thats because they brought in streamers who were in Bronze and Gold who did majority of the awful takes. Shouldve just brought in the OWL gamers alone. “Mercys GA resets when she gets a kill in Valkyrie” what? Those streamers were clueless lol. Dont bring in a bronze when you want to balance the game. Simple as that.

You are actually proving my point with that…
