He admitted the negativity seemed anecdotal. Then he lauded on the improved queue times. He summarized that it MIGHT not go live due to negativity (which is anecdotal). And finished with “we’ll see”.
To me the game is such a mess like this, just like trudging through the old days.
My personal view is that I’ve had the most fun in 2-2-2 while also understanding that DPS queue times were not fun at all.
If this is the solution though…yeah I know I’ll probably end up playing way less often unless me a and a few friends want to run around on dps again.
Playing solo tank and getting hard focused with very little back up or an off tank to assist sucks.
Playing support and getting flanked constantly and getting complains of lack of healing when everyone is spread out on the map isn’t fun.
Playing dps though, sure it makes the game more like a “fps”, allowing maps to be opened up to multiple routes.
But it’s rather like death match on a larger map. I like OW because it’s not just another FPS. There are literally so many of those games I could Pooh the randomly at a shelf in a game store and with my eyes closed and will be more likely to land on one than not.
I don’t have high hopes for 2-2-2 staying and expect that this will happen if nothing else because of queue times. The devs just don’t have any other viable solution to reducing them for DPS.
