From our Global Insights group:

"In NA, someone has managed to recreate UNO, the card game. Surprisingly, it has the most hours played out of any link. This may be a result of consolidation; there is only 1 version of UNO floating around, but hundreds of accuracy trainer variations.

Workshop has been extremely well received in KR; the most popular game mode in KR has a total of 5667 hours played so far, more than 4x the top link in NA. It is called “High Blood Pressure Marathon” (혈압마라톤) which is a mode with no cooldowns, infinite ultimates, and some other crazy things mixed in."

And here are the KR top charts (forgive any localization issues or typos here):

TOP 10 Workshop Modes May 2019!
[Article] Can we make with Blizzard Workshop modes more popular?
(Jeff Kaplan) pinned #2


Any chance we can vote for these workshop to be in the arcade rotation?


Hope there is a possible chance that we can get a code for temporary shields/armor.

But workshop is a good addition from the dev team, it definitely gives some more creativity in OW.


What’s with the average players is korea being approximately twice as large. Do you count spectators and queue as well?

Also surprised i don’t see any pokemon game. I have been working on my improved version because the two other ones are either really badly done (150 rules where 100 can be solved with 3 loops) or too lackluster/simple.
Pokemon would be a great addition to the arcade.

It’s one of the few arcade modes that forces communication and critical thinking.
In the version i am making at least. Trainer can apart from usual healing and recall also recover ultimate, clear statuses, give a special power like speed. These are all limited use and both trainers have the same options.
Making it actually properly like hero gauntlet would be twice as fun.


Wait… why are there 12+ avg. players in all of these matches? Does it count spectators?


Huh i’m surprised more people don’t play murder mystery, it’s pretty fun.


Or more than 2 custom games are available with the same code at the same time.


People leave custom games lobbies open and lots of players jump in and out


Well, what’s puzzling is that there are no modes in NA with more than 12 players, and there are no modes in KR with less than 12 players.


I wish lobbies were persistent. I wish that if I wanted to play X game mode, the lobby for it would always be available. Basically how actual servers worked of old.

It’s a bit sucky that I have to wait around for a lobby with players in it (for more niche modes), or wait for my own to populate.

I just wanna play “QP but no snipers” man.


Can we please have experience points added to workshop modes? I think a lot more people would play if that happened, especially due to the event going on currently.


I’m surprised to see there are no Murder Mystery in here. Or is it only in sea region?


why are those numbers so low though is my question. I would have thought they would have been much higher like 10’s of thousands… of matches of each. These numbers just show how little activity there actually is in overwatch… especially NA no wonder they moving to mobile and GCHHINNAAAA


I feel like these numbers would rise gradually if you allowed us to gain XP again from custom games again. At the moment it’s just to have some fun but there’s no reward or incentive apart from that.


Kinda surprised I don’t see infection on here, as there are always several games running. I guess it’s because there are so many variations?


Thats just because there are several lobbies I would think


Same, tbh the numbers are a bit random so they might have simply left it out.


how…how does uno work in OW ._.?

also KR must be crazy…unlimited ults?

Zarya would be so godly.


I’d love to play uno against people

Draw four
