I can’t understand why blizzard would remove a feature that gives you more control of the way you play the game. Unfortunately now I cannot make a team that I can communicate with appropriately, thus making a competitive game mode nigh-on impossible and furthermore the option to stay as a group after a game has a drastically reduced timer compared to OW1. Having a microphone is critical when you’re competing and group finder would allow you to make it a prerequisite before even starting a game.
Now that everyone has been forced into a ‘general population’ queue you find throwers and just down right stupid players, ruining the experience of those who enjoy competition.
Im nothing special, my peak in OW1 was only diamond, but I felt like I could control my progression, whereas now it’s anyone’s guess how the game will play out.
Fine, make Quickplay random groups, but if you want to compete, give us back the tools we require to do so.
To me it feels like a little bit of a flex from the developers, they assume they can change a game so much and still keep the same fan base. While I can’t personally monitor the OW population I am very confident this feature removal among many, many other issues with the game will reduce that population even more than it already was.
It’s my understanding that later into a game franchise or any franchise for that matter, you improve it by adding more features and then perfecting existing ones… The opposite has happened.
I have never contributed to a forum in my life until this one, please guys open my eyes… Am I wrong to think this way? Or is there some grand scheme I’m unaware of? Because from my perspective, this is franchise suicide in the making.
