Overwatch Competitive Mode to limit multiple characters


In an interview with GameSpot,¬†Blizzard’s Scott Mercer discussed balance changes to Overwatch, confirming that there will be changes coming to the game’s competitive mode. One of the biggest will be that Blizzard is going to be placing a limit on hero selection.

“The big thing for Competitive Play is we’re going to turn on one-hero limit, so players will not be able to stack more than one of the same hero within a Competitive match. It’s not going to affect Quick Play at all, but it is something we’re going to turn on for Competitive.”

Other facets of competitive mode were also touched on, such as how Blizzard plans to resolve tied games:

“We definitely want players to feel like if they had a tie, their time wasn’t completely wasted,” Mercer said. “So we’re trying to find the sweet spot of a lot of players feel like, ‘Oh, well, we got something out of it,’ but at the same time not create situations where players might collude and create some nasty situations there. We’re still discussing that.”

This all comes ahead of new hero, Ana‘s launch later this month as well as a new patch that will be released for the game. What other changes would you like to see made to the game? Let us know in the comments below.
