I’ll admit that I don’t know how hard this would be implement but it seems obvious to me that 7v7 is the way to go with a 2-3-2 format.
There is clearly a high demand to play dps. The only way to meet this demand is to increase the supply of dps slots, but most players would prefer at least two tanks and two healers per team; So the obvious solution, in my mind, is to just add a dps slot per team. Tanks & supports might even get some needed buffs to balance out the extra damage that they’ll have to fight against.
They said that it’s not impossible, but would be “extremely” costly because of the technological restraints…The way he worded it made it sound like it’d be a herculean effort on their part.
As much as I’d love to see 2-3-2 happen (because I personally don’t like the idea of trading a tank slot for a dps slot, myself), I’m just going to assume that its something that we should never expect to see, or at the very least not anything we can expect within the near future.
Though I’m still going to hope it’s able to get implemented anyway.
7v7 and even many more players in one map has been done in custom games with little to no issues.
The only issue I see is consoles, which shouldn’t even dictate the PC side of things, which is the focal point.
