    I dunno dude, that's kind of like making fun of someone for buying drinks at a bar that's gonna go out of business. People buy this shit for the same reason hoarders pile up products they're never going to use: satisfaction in the immediate now. A week later, they're just looking forward to the next acquisition, and the next, etc.

    I personally bought all kinds of shit in Warframe, but was fully aware that this was technically a waste of money and degenerate behavior, and had no issue walking away from the game (and my accumulated digital hats, scarves, magic medallions, and paint jobs) forever once it wore out its welcome.

    Loot boxes are a bit of a different animal than just buying shit from a cash shop, though. They're gambling of the worst kind, and very addictive to people who are prone to gambling (AKA terrible at mathematics).

    I might see it that way if Valve decided to push out Team Fortress 3 after a decade of TF2, but Overwatch was only released three years ago and it was promoted as a 'sustainable' e-sports game. Maybe Overwatch 2 will be designed in such a way as to allow for the continuation of Overwatch but... who knows.

    I'm not sure what to think anymore as someone who plays a gacha game but has never spent a cent on it. I guess some games are just less abusive about it.

    On both the mental and emotional levels, three years feels like about half a lifetime to Millennials.

    Blizzard is done for. They can't create anything anymore, only milk the existing franchises for a little longer.

    Overwatch is a disappointment for e sports though. Cannot tell what the fuck is going on. Is worse than watching a Michael Bay movie. Maybe they will redesign the game to make it better for e sports.

    RIP Overwatch:

    INTRODUCING ROLE QUEUE

    I sort of understand this for competitive mode, even though I believe it is retarded and it will break some creative team compositions like GOATS.

    However, Blizzard plans to enforce role queues for quick play as well. This will only drive away the remaining casuals to other games where they can shoot stuff. Casuals will not settle for enforced team roles. Even TF2 never attempted something like that, and I recall the few servers that did, ended up rolling back or closing up shop because people just went someplace else.

    :prosper:

    Eh, there will definitely be a shift in the playerbase but I don't see it as a death knell. Sure, all the FOREVER HANZO idiots will bail. I can easily see newer players queuing in and seeing the screen saying "keep waiting to play DPS or play as tank right now" ... and then more people start trying tank or support. In that light, this will be better for QP than for comp. And of course most veterans I've seen are fine covering any role anyway.

    Never would have thought I'd live the times where you need a fucking dungeon-finder mechanism for an FPS game.
    This game is a joke.

    The fuck? Every single team fps game has roles. You think tfc or quake ctf didn't have positions and characters assigned to people in competitive? Nice "fps pro" larp. This just makes it easier to explicitly state what you play in que for better matchmaking.

    Yeah because forcing people into 2-2-2 because you can't balance the game around 3-2-1 meta for a year is a pinnacle of game design.
    Blizzcucks at it again, forcing the metagame was the nail in the coffin of SC2

    You wouldn't play those games competitive with automatic matchmaking. That's a hell of a difference.

    And the tards that kept asking for this change never stop to think on the negative aspects. You won't be able to make up for a shit player. And no, the different ranks won't always help. It will be very common for someone to rank high on a different hero than the one is forced to play even in the same role. The only result, people that like to complain about shit will move to another "GAMEBREAKING ISSUE" that completely and utterly destroys their fun and ability to be brilliant.
    Blizzard need to learn to stop knee jerk reactions to "first world issues" that put reddit/twitter/whatever the fuck social media platform on fire.

    Whatever changes they feel are needed for OWL shouldn't always reflect on comp and especially not QP. It's definitely NOT the same game.

    You don't need to fix ALL problems with it - you just have to make it better, which it does. This does fix unwinnable throw and cheese goat comps. Yea you can still have suboptimal tanks like zarya/roadhog but it is still better then 4 dps. This isn't knee-jerk patch. Pro /serious comp players have been asking for this since release. The fuck are you on about.

    Also can we stop with the myth that OWL strats only work in OWL? That is plain bullshit propagated by people that don't play comp or play below diamond or something. Every single meta like dive, beyblade, bunker, and goats has been the go to comp to switch when losing a game for easy win. Literally every gm game - lose one round, switch to goats, profit. Yea to utilise those comps to full advantage - you need a pro team, but you can yield benefits from it even with a bunch of randos qing in between faps.

    Yea putting constraints on complexity such as possible team comps is done to make balance possible. This is a very standard technique to limit complexity by reducing permutations. The fuck do you know about game design or programming.

    Goats works cause it's easy, same with most tank heavy comps. Yeah when fizzled people in comp switch to whatever meta pros play, except it fails most of the time said meta requires actual mechanics or coordination. It's the same in every team game with an actual pro scene.

    Forcing 2-2-2 because of goats (outside owl) is simply retarded. And in owl it should be only temporary until they find a way to fix it. (I didn't use retarded as a hyperbole, that's how it gets when devs are lazy and too dumb to think ahead on the consequences of their actions ).
