Overall, RQ was a major change to the game. Just like how invoking no duplicate heroes early in OW’s history changed up how things were balanced. No longer did you have to worry about people coming up with 6 torbjorns or something.
2/2/2 we knew was going to change things and would have impacts. The question has always been is it a better change than it used to be?
In my experience playing quick play I want to say I have continually seen <2min tank, <5min support and DPS fluctuate from like <5min to <10min. ON occasion I see Support <9min.
I am disgruntled over people picking stuff that is not ideal, but as a tank player I never have ever ever have to deal with the situation of being the only tank or having only one support. Two tanks, and the one support pick you have is a Zenyatta. That type of change alone improved the quality of my enjoyment of playing tank so much.
It also fixed stuff I had issues with which was the idea of triple flanker. 2 flankers is a pain in the butt, but 2 flankers and 2 tanks always gives me the option to just fall back on shoot and bully the tanks. They an live through it where it would KO anyone else. It also made the idea of playing support far more fun because evading tanks is easier than evading DPS and being the only support with 3 DPS around always felt awful.
So, for me, tanking/support satisfaction went way up. Now, with the whoel priority pass thing my flexing on tank/support has lead to guaranteeing <5min DPS queue as well.
Overall, I have been a happy custom of the whole ordeal. I’d probably be more upset if I was actually the DPS person in like 4000 rank. But, I am not. I’m the flex player who largely plays everything including tank/support most, but in quick play. Supports are in a great spot to me due to the variety of characters now that brig exists and tank would feel much better if they gave them a pinpoint hitscan tank to be able to deal with flying characters more reliably in the case no one ever picks it from dps/support.
Which means to me this only gets better the more tank/support that come out.
