Snowstorm needs to ‘reset assumptions’ for its hardest saints.
Snowstorm is evaluating some significant changes to tanks in Overwatch 2. During an in the background take a gander at the continuation during BlizzCon 2021, game chief Jeff Kaplan uncovered that the group isn’t content with tanks as they are in Overwatch now. As indicated by Kaplan, the objective is to cause each tank to feel more like a “head to head brawler.”
With that impact, Blizzard is in any event, considering changing the name of the job altogether. In a meeting with IGN, Kaplan said tanks may some time or another be known as “brawlers” so the group can “reset assumptions” for how the job is intended to be played.
“At this moment, it’s normal in a round of Overwatch 1 to sign in and have someone simply say like, ‘We need a shield, you need to play a shield. Try not to bring the shield down’,” Kaplan said. “Also, you’re similar to, ‘All things considered, I didn’t feel like simply holding left trigger or right mouse conservative throughout the evening. That wasn’t my concept of how I needed to play Overwatch around evening time however I’m being compelled to’.”
What’s the significance here in real life? Snowstorm utilized Reinhardt to act as an illustration for this test redo in the present video. With ‘brawler’ upgrades, Reinhardt will have two employments of Firestrike per cooldown, greater mobility during his Charge capacity, and the choice to counteract of it. You can see this all in real life beneath.
To be reasonable, “tank” as of now depicts the job’s situation in a group quite well. They’re intended to hold up a shield (in a few cases), aggro harm by being a bigger objective, and set up partners for murders with clearing harm. Reinhardt’s separating hammer swings and problematic Firestrikes are an exemplary model. Kaplan’s remarks today didn’t seem like any of that will change in Overwatch 2. I’m keen on what this forceful activity could mean for different tanks, however. Perhaps I’ll at long last have the option to invest more energy tossing rocks as Sigma and less time dealing with a hindrance.
BlizzCon 2021 is proceeding through today and into the end of the week. To keep awake to date, here’s beginning and end we’ve gained from BlizzCon 2021 up until this point.
