Quality of life ideas


#1

These are just a couple of ideas I’ve had to make the cosmetic side of overwatch a little better, maybe idk.

  1. In ‘Highlight Intros’ players should be able to pick which intros they want to use, a ‘select all that apply’ if you will, rather than just picking 1 or random between 4+ intros hoping you get one of your favourites, since i believe most people wouldn’t just have 1 favourite intro for some characters.
  2. Since the game was released, there have been 100’s of cosmetics created, and while adding the 4 options made it better, now there’s too much to choose from; i suggest allowing 6 or 8 slots for sprays, emotes and voice lines.
    Idk just some thoughts ¯_(ツ)_/¯

Ok seems good. No argument here.

Good suggestions. We’ve talked about more of a “playlist” format for random skins, intros, etc… If we get some time to focus on Quality of Life changes, we’ll discuss adding these to that list.


Nano event is 10/10
Want to know Dev’s current priorities, since Jeff mentioned a list

:eyes: Hey Jeff, my boy. Can we finally get some progress on the game? Just a tad. Maybe some lore, or more attention to the game’s problems. Thanks a bunch. Waiting to hop back on the high horse

Hey… Good to see you still have a forum account.

Could we get an update on Bastion?

It’s only Been two years is all… Just still waiting.

Our patience grew thin long ago.


#7

Glad to know you are reading our suggestions!

Hate to be that guy, but have you read our Bastion suggestions?


#8

When we get some time.

Oh well, that’s never in Blizzard wording.


#9

Thank you Jeff. We cannot wait to see what you guys have in mind.

Edit: If you have time or want to, could you please take a look at the hero concept part of the community? Here is a link to one of the showcases: Hero Concept Showcase #2: Talon Tank


#10

Can you add some things like selecting multiple names at once in custom games so its easier to move people, etc?


#11

Any plans to allow us to select the maps we wanna play on in QP?


#12

Can I suggest one make McCree’s role be able to be used while jumping? It’ll help him a lot in my opinion.


#13

Where have you been?


#14

I never even thought of that second idea! That would be really nifty! Also changing your skin while your dead. Would that hurt the game to allow mid game changes?


#15

Can i suggest we address the largest thread on this forum still without an official response?

Here’s a link so you don’t have trouble finding it at the top of the list:

All we want is an open debate.


#16

I like both ideas there. A grid layout could work if Blizzard wants to have more than 8 and would work well for sprays, or a list for voice lines

To add another QOL idea, when opening lootboxes, for the skins or highlight intros have a compare button.


#17

Yes please! i love the idea since i like 2-3 intros for each here and want those only.

and can we please see what we got from the previous loot box? i sometimes open a lootbox but the match starts so i didnt have a chance to see what i got.


#18

Hey Jeff can we get a dev update in the near future about upcoming new content? The nano cola challenge helped, but regardless the game feels really stale right now overall. I know Busan is coming, but i feel thats not enough.


#19

I was just thinking simular thoughts about the sprays. There are way to many sprays for 4 slots to ever be enough, even 8 might not be enough imo.

A quick fix I was thinking was a “random Option”. That way it would put down any random spray you have available to that character. I know there are a lot of “kind of neat” sprays I never touch just because there are better ones for the limited slots. But if it was a random option it would be nice to see what could turn up.


#20

Speaking of cosmetics… Any chance we’re getting our hands on the World Cup skins?


#21

An idea I had was a feature that allows you to pin 5-10 highlights to your career profile and other people can view them.
