Finally, Overwatch 2 is listening to its player community and addressing two major complaints – the progression system and the Play of the Game (POTG) system.
These issues have been haunting the hero shooter since its release less than a year ago, and players have been eagerly waiting for Blizzard to take action.
Overwatch 2 Complaints
As the game enters its third season, Blizzard has recently made a “major change” to improve matchmaking quality, which has been a recurring criticism from players. However, matchmaking is not the only problem with Overwatch 2, and the community has been clamoring for more changes.
But now, the game director Aaron Keller has come forward with some exciting news in a blog post – the On Fire feature will be tweaked, and the progression system and POTG will be revamped.
Inconsistencies with the Play of the Game (POTG) system
The POTG system has been criticized for being inconsistent, but the new version promises to showcase a wider range of game-making plays.
While Keller didn’t reveal specific details, the community can expect to see more variety and fairer recognition of impactful plays in the future.
Issues with the progression system
The progression system in Overwatch 2 has been frustrating players for a long time, hence the complaints. Keller has promised that the devs are working on a much larger hero and player progression system that will replace the current one. This new system will offer a variety of categories for players to level up and show their progress.
Although there is no release date yet, Keller expects it to launch later this year.
Blizzard is finally addressing complaints
The competitive scene in Overwatch 2 is also undergoing some tweaks, with the effectiveness of these changes being debated in the community. However, the fact that Blizzard has finally acknowledged the POTG and progression complaints in Overwatch 2 is excellent news for players.
With a new season coming up and more updates in the pipeline, Overwatch 2 players can hope for a more stable and enjoyable game experience, especially since this hero’s ultimate is still broken up to this day.
