It’s still being discussed because recently there have been several interviews with Jeff about Role queue. And in those interviews Jeff confirmed that he is a big fan of role queue with separate SR, there are some problems that need to be addressed, and that they have people working on it right now.
What you may be thinking about is that he doesn’t want just 2/2/2 select or 411 forced metas. But they are seriously considering a role queue.
Because 2 flex - 2- 2 just = More GOATS. and Goats-like comps.
If the option is there then it will be picked, if its an easy way to win games. Why play something creative or fun that will get you more losses than wins, if you have the option of a cheese comp that will get you a much much higher win rate. No matter if un-fun.
Why would the 2 flex players pick any of the DPS heroes, that most are trash or un-viable, if they can pick a Tank or Support that does their job better and synergise better with the team. Masking each other weaknesses.
Also the fact that we are back to square 1, of not being able to balance certain heroes correctly because of stacking abuse.
Why? It’s not going to make the Hero balancing more homogenized. On the contrary, they can do the complete opposite. They can have each Hero within their respective role be a more specialized version of themselves, knowing there will only ever be 1 other Hero of the same role in a party.
This will encourage players to expand their Hero pool within their chosen Role and encourage actual countering in Comp Mode that currently does not happen, by swapping to another Hero within the same role that better suits the situation/team Comp. Even mid-match.
Also, they can make each Healer/Tank an actual Healer or a Tank…rather than some amalgamation of every role under the sun.
