We have all heard that dps are least impactful through the echo chamber over and over, but is it really true?
In games there are tanks and supports that that can do a lot of damage, sure. But tanks and supports have more responsibilities than just killing the enemy team, dva for example has to be ready to eat tracer’s pulse bomb while also using dm to eat barrage and don’t forget grav…also be ready to maybe boop away anyone with boosters. In super’s words “guess I’ll just do everything”.
This goes the same for the support role as well, they have several other things to do. While yes dps role does have other things to do it’s nowhere near in comparison to the other roles.
Dps role mostly has the job of killing the other team, and before you say “but roadhog” hog is a big dps in disguise with no real tanking ability, mostly feeds ult charge, and he doesn’t have any way to protect his team, this is why he is mostly trash in high level play and unliked by a lot of the community.
In conclusion dps can shoot and focus on killing the enemy while not thinking about not much else, which is why they can have the highest kill potential and the most fun…hence whe queue times are so long
