Overwatch 2 players face mass queues because no one wants to play support.
Most Overwatch2players don’t want to swap to a support role in their games. They have good reasons. It is causing the terrible queue times you see on the new hero shooter.
There’s only one minute left on the clock, and the payload hasn’t moved an inch toward the end of the line. As your pitch will likely cause torrential abuse or total refusal to speak to you, you’re not allowed to be in your team’s voice chat. To track your team’s progress, the enemy, where they are, who has their ultimate, who is about to respawn, and so forth, you need to turn on every brain cell.
Zenyatta allows you to stay away from the action and send out healing orbs and discord, but your team’s refusal to counter the Sombra makes you a robot duck who prioritizes its killstreaks. The screen will flash with defeat. “LOL,” sounds in Soldier 76. Your calendar is checked, and you are greeted by a kitten looking at you with big blue eyes. It is 2022. It’s not 2017.
The community’s insistence on not swapping support makes Overwatch2 queue times exceptionally long. The matches can’t start quickly because everyone is clogging the Tank and DPS queues. The new 5V5 structure is also a hindrance for support heroes, who are readily obtainable for characters such as Genji and Sombra.
one player said, “Being sh*ty to support is starting to be a bad habit both tanks who can’t properly initiate and DPS that don’t know how to use cover.” This is combined with the fact that support roles received the most changes of any group. It’s been open to overturned flankers such as Sombra.
Someone on the Blizzard forum stated that “This game isn’t fun for support.” “The transition was a disaster because of the overemphasis on damage players and the curtailing of the ‘Tank” role to be ‘Bigger DPS.’
Kiriko is a new support character with instrumental abilities. It cannot be accessed without the battle pass. To grant access to the character, you will need to spend approximately 50 hours. This is a problem for casual players. Blizzard has all this feedback to draw from, so we are hopeful that there will be some improvements for the support mains.
