I disagree with this being the case of OW2. Yes you have to adjust positioning more moment to moment but the macro of positioning and pathing requires more thought now because you have less easy ways of gettting it. In live OW you can create cover more often while it’s less frequent in OW2, that’s something you need to think about and also gameplan for.
I feel like you are confusing strategy with team reliance with your Sombra example but I understand the point you are making.
An example of the opposite is Tracer being more team reliant now compared to before of how impactful the damage nerf is coupled with support buffs.
Yes there’s a difference between the strategy and tactics but your example about how it’s weighted in tac shooters I heavily disagree with. The macro play matters a lot in every round, it’s the gameplay that you start off with, yes you have to adjust according to how the round plays out but that doesn’t make the macro play irrelevant. You always need to have a game plan.
I see OW2 being the same way, you need good fundamentals and good macro plans but you need to adjust to the micro based on how the teamfights progress.
Otherwise what you get is just flowchart gaming where you can you can preplan everything and execute it exactly just like that or keep trying until you succeed which is essentially how a lot of high level Live OW played out.
Your example was simply wrong, it’s kinda the point of the thread.
Tracer is a top pick in OWL because the literal best players in the world are unsurprisingly to no one still insanely good at her but there’s no denying that if she wasn’t nerfed, she’d be solo carrying.
Again, solo carrying being a thing is not something that detracts from strategy or tactics, if anything it adds more because you have more to prepare for and and if you can see someone is popping off you can adjust by making that person the main focus.
You simply cannot expect to walk into a game without any strategy or tactic and simply rely on that someone on the team is going to pop off and carry team fights.
Is it not clear that I’m talking about those people? The people who make that blatant statement and are willing to die on that hill making post after post about a falsehood.
I’m not GM, never have been and no one has to be. All you have to do to actually understand the game is think and a lot of people are failing to do that.
