[PVPL] Your Favorite Overwatch Hero Could Be Retired - Page 3

post #21 of 38
Blizz can 'retire' a character in one patch and in the same breath have them come out of retirement with another patch. A roster removal isnt necessary. The game is a constant swing of nerfs & buffs.

I agree, especially since it seems they are wanting to go that "competitive esports" route with this game. I can see total re-vamp of early heroes if they start to release a bunch of heroes (similar to what Riot does in League of Legends) but I honestly dont see this happening for quiet a while. I doubt they would ever actually "retire" a hero all together also and will just nerf & buff.

Blizzard doesn't remove stuff, they redesign or "balance" into uselessness.

As a Genji main, I know these feels.

I think more maps would be more important to stay relevant

This is such a click bait-y headline. But it raises an interesting point. Online games like this live or die based on their player base, and it's up to the developers to keep introducing new features- in this case, characters- to keep the game fresh and the player base active. Should these features be expected after the release as part of the price of the game to keep players active? Are the developers justified in charging for DLC at some point? And if so, when?

This is exactly how media and journalism works! The more stressful title is the more clicks you get.

"We don't have any plans to retire any heroes. The interviewer asked if there was a possibility that this could ever happen and I "left the door open". The original poster in this thread did not even link to the original article but rather to an article quoting the article in question.

We're not even remotely thinking about retiring heroes right now or anytime in the foreseeable future.

I think this thread is making a mountain out of a molehill."

There are people who see this game and say why can't we make it more like League and suppress the experience of the general populous so their forced to experience it less. I'm really really sick of extreme league fans trying to manipulate other games to conform to their ideal play experience.
