Anyone else miss when Overwatch was genuinely fun? And just, not really fxcking frustrating to play? The balancing with the game seems to get worse and worse with each unnecessary buff, nerf, and reworks to heros, the game events are stale, the majority of game modes (aside from maybe no limits and total mayhem) are boring, and the only way blizzard seems to think they can spruce up the game a bit is just by continuously adding heros that get worse and worse with each release or by just over-hyping/investing way too much into OWL.
Competitive, which was something that I honestly felt was rewarding, just is extremely frustrating now as well. The reasons for this vary, from the one or two “op” heros each season, to the tiring and/or annoying comps to play/play against, to the increase of toxicity in the community (I’ve gotten more throwers and just generally shxtty girls and guys in my games the past 3 seasons more then any other point in my comp experience), and the huge increase in smurf accounts. (Want to note that I don’t mind smurfs that much if you’re using them to practice a hero, or to play with lower ranked friends, I just find them to be an issue when people 1. have multiple ones, 2. are pretty toxic people, and 3. they’re using them just to shxt on players who are ranked lower then them.) Either way, makes the game less fun for newer players, lower ranks players, and jut people trying to have a fun time.
I have more issues with things that I’m not sure how to put into words, but Overwatch in 2018 is so different from the release, and I’m not even sure if that’s a good thing or not in any way. I guess here’s to hoping that 2019 is better.
Anyway though, whats your views on Overwatch’s current state? Any ideas or suggestions for how Blizzard could make the game more fun again, even if not competitively and just casually? And when did it first become frustrating/unfun to play for you personally?
