The game is a mess. Balance is awful. Character design really sucks. Why include so many unfun moves? Pick Wrecking Ball and you will be hacked every time you spawn. Great!

What a mess


Balance isn't awful. People that say this didn't play Overwatch the entire 3 years. No character is unplayable. Yes Goats sucks and needs to be fixed but don't talk out your ass. Also... your example of you getting mad you are getting hacked all the time as wrecking ball... Well... Sombra is a COUNTER to you! Stop playing Hammond into Sombra and you'll have a better time. Don't expect the Des to balance the game where you can play into counters without having problems. That's a you problem.

It's sad that I have to keep explaining this.

I start with WB, the enemy then changes during play to Sombra. This renders WB completely useless.

This is good game design, how? A character that is utterly pointless.

BUt I dn't expect online gamers to ever think about things. Far too stupid

It's counters. You literally explained it the exact same way. Want to deal with Sombra and make Wrecking ball more playable. Counter Sombra. Hanzo is a great character for this. Zarya can support Hammond with bubbles. There are ways to get it done. Sombra isn't an auto win character against Hammond when you have teammates and your own personal positioning. Stop looking at it as a 1v1 in the middle of a parking lot.

Now why would he do that? If he complains enough, Blizzard will nerf Sombra. It worked for Brigitte and Mercy.

Isn't this for the best considering 75 percent of the roster is dps. Maybe once they add more tanks and healers so your not trapped playing the same 4 characters all the time if ur a tank or healer main(which is usually just flex players). I hated 2 2 2 so very much because i'm literally always tank or healer

The game is stagnant and poorly balanced. The counter system just penalises you for picking a hero you might want to play which, in a game like this, has to be the dumbest design choice. You want to penalise me because I picked WB and they picked Sombra? Well done, you've just told me not to play your game.

And sniping just doesn't fit at all into OW.

How is it bad game designed? Blizzard intentionally designed it like that. Jeff said do yourself. Not being able to one trick your favorite hero is a good design choice. Not a bad one
