Blizzard said that the changes to 5v5 will update the classic role of Overwatch. From the beginning of the sequel, “Chariot” will undergo major changes than the fixed shield and become more frontline fighters.
In addition, each character will receive passive character rewards, which will complement the unique abilities of each hero.When the enemy is hurt, the tank’s knockback ability will be reduced, and will reduce the income of the final charge. Damaged heroes will get a bonus to movement speed, and if supporting heroes are not damaged for a long time, they will have an automatic self-repair function.
This is one of the biggest reorganizations of Overwatch and may reshape the competitive landscape. By reducing the number of teams to 5, it will no longer be possible to cause controversial 2-2-2 Meta (2 tanks, 2 damage, 2 healers), which will allow Tanks players to have greater action in action Advantage.
It remains to be seen how the number of this new team will move, and today’s “Overwatch 2” briefing will leave more news, which remains to be seen.
