    Honestly, I main support but occasionally like to switch to other roles, depending on how the group is feeling. Since this role queue was introduced, games are feeling stale, communication is dead, and it feels like i'm playing an FPS League of Legends. Can this not be an opt in system?

    And......I hate it. Drop so much rank because of this. Just because I can't switch roles mid match. 2+2+2 system lock is doesn't work in some maps. It sucks. Also the long wait for dps is ridiculous.

    Why not have matchmaking/skill rating for each character, rather than role? I'm great with S76, but give me Genji and I might as well take a seat and smell the flowers. Also, why not let me specify the char I want to play before queuing? It shouldn't increase wait times and I can always change within the same role to suit the team comp if I need to.

    I really love the update! It's awesome that you only stick to one category and the roles are fair(2 healers, 2 tanks and 2 dps). I also like that you got stricter with the consequences. It's awesome really however I've been facing some problems lately and I would appreciate it that you could change it. A lot of players leave the match in tge middle of a comp play and in the end there's 6 players against 3 and this isn't fair at all because when we lose our rank still gets lower. And guess what this happened to me over 4 times and my rank got drastically lower. It's not a fair match. Okay the player who left need to face some consequences. But why do the player who played fair and stayed until the match ended get lower? (I am not english so I hope ya'll understand what I mean)

    Thanks papa Jeff, for not giving up on the game. I haven’t placed in comp in a few seasons (I placed every season since the first until like 13) because it’s just not worth it anymore. After this update idk maybe I’ll like it better? (Still haven’t tried it yet lol)

    Then try to be good at the game? practice thats why you start at bronze and dont focus on the rest of the team focus on yourself and how you can develop as a better tank/dps/healer

    Role queue is AWFUL. It’s way too restricting. Let’s say I’m not doing great as a tank and I would feel more comfortable playing a healer... Well, too bad, I’m screwed and so is my team because we can’t swap mid-game. Or DPS isn’t getting kills or playing the proper heroes to counter the opposing team. No one else can switch to DPS and help put out damage. There have been many games where I’ve swapped off a tank or healer, to another DPS and it helped to have extra damage to push through the choke or cap the point. I also like to play different heroes depending on the map. That is out the window now. I get it that team comp is important and 2-2-2 can be a good strategy, but being forced into it and having no way out is an awful idea. I don’t understand who the target audience is for this...?The cons outweigh the pros by a lot. I’m really not a fan.

    Honestly think the role que is so dumb, I have to load in a game for so long. And the tier list is also really dumb. Add back the normal comp que, it was better that way.

    THIS IS HORRIBLE! Get rid of role queue and let us pick the character we want like it used to be! I mainly play competitive but play the other modes as well and have NEVER felt pressure to pick a character! Overwatch is/was my favorite game but if you don't get rid of role queue I WON'T be playing this game as much! ROLE QUEUE is not as fun do away with it!

    last season I ended up 2226 highest sr 2689 and this season I I had 5/5 as a DPS at 2090 WTF? Tank 4/5 win placed at 2108 again wtf? And support my main role 4/5 placed at 2200 seriously what is this? Winning most of the games and again I gad lower rank than previous season overall and in each role. I really want to buy a new account in order to have my MMR and SR reset for REAL. Right now there is no reason for placements every season because they are not placement matches. Blizzard you really need to fix this, because it destroys the game experience. I won’t buy a new account because I have all the skins and levels, but I am not even trying to win for real, competitive is QP with a badge so I will just have fun.

  39. Tony .D

    Tony .D7 hari yang lalu

    I don’t like this. The main problem is that you are not aware of the map that you are queuing for. For example, I do really well as widowmaker on Hanamura. However, if I’m playing on Ilios, I do really well as Orisa. If I could see the map I was queuing for, it would be more beneficial for my team. Oh, and before someone says “just play quickplay classic lmao”, arcade sucks. You get less exp (which is good for blizzard cause you get less lootboxes) and you can’t earn trophies/achievements. And arcade is a bigger sweat fest than comp when an event is going on.

    @Anthony Millan Jr That's the bug I'm talking about. It happened to me in QP with characters being grayed out Its not intended and blizzard is working on fixing the problem

  58. Anthony Millan Jr

    Anthony Millan Jr7 hari yang lalu

    @JP MUSIK First of all let's establish that I'm playing on PS4. Not sure if this is native to that or if it's across all platforms. Second, 2 2 2 for AI is not like the comp one. Test it for yourself. Load into a game, and the minute any 2 characters from a select role get picked, the rest of the characters get greyed out. If they were gonna do this they may as well have let us pick our role before the match starts instead of having to insta lock a role not knowing or being considerate to what others actually want to play. The thing that made AI fun before was the flexibility with picks, as the bots are already broken as it stands. I just want them to change this and i don't know where to voice my concern other than their video here. It's very frustrating and honestly kills 80 percent of this game for me overnight.

    U still can. I believe ur misunderstanding role lock and role queue. Role lock is the quick play bug that happened when the game updated where after 2 of one role was picked, it became disabled. Role queue allows u to pick the role you want to play and pick only the heroes in that role
