Heroes may drive a lot of buzz but I want to see another game mode. I feel like Capture the Flag is salvageable but I don't think they have the will. I am not sure what other kind of concepts they could try beyond capture the point, king of the king, or escorting the payload.

Several versions of content like Junkenstein's revenge would be nice!

I'm sure they will start another 7 month long ARG that keeps ending in count down timers where nothing happens and people eventually get tired and pissed off soon.

They came out and said they won't be doing that any more due to the feedback from the sombra arg

Good thing he said that. There's so much hype with Terry showing up at the campus and the datamined shattered Numbani payload that there'd be a massive amount of disappointment if the next hero that was announced was some rando.

That's pretty much what they did for Ana.

I'm trying to decide which Twin Peaks character would be best-suited for Overwatch.

I'm leaning toward Deputy Hawk, but I think you could also make a good case for Special Agent Dale Cooper. One of his abilities would involve Diane.

This game needs PvE content, and a party mode where you can do dumb stuff. Could need a map editor for that, though.

Do you mean custom games/servers for dumb stuff? Because they have those

Custom games as in custom maps. Think of minigame party maps from Warcraft 3 and such, where the gameplay itself is stupid, but very fun, and good to disconnect from the shooter gameplay for a while without logging off. Cooperative PvE modes are also good, like killing waves of rabid robots, or a short story mission where the characters are fixed, and you see them interact with each other. Think of the comics made gameplay.

Overwatch is where it is because of very basic premises, being the large Blizzard fanbase and the good aesthetics. However the game itself has barely any content, and you won't have people playing forever if there isn't something more to it.

It shouldn't be hard for the competition to just make a better title. You only need more customization and more modes. If you go as far as to add a map editor, then money will just rain.

Right now Overwatch is a wasted opportunity for the genre, just like Diablo III and StarCraft II before it. They promote staleness and are counter-innovative, in way too many ways.

Winston needs a charge-able alt-fire like Mei has.

Hopefully Doomfist can pick heroes up and throw them. That would be the coolest move ever.

They need to start putting out more heroes at a faster pace.

I sort of agree and then don't.

I agree the time between new Heroes is too long but then part of me asks "Is it Heroes you mean or just content in general?" Because frankly this game isn't HotS and it can't afford new Heroes as often due to the balancing nature of an FPS like this.

This game's content, overall, is painfully lacking and the time between new content is just laughable. Especially when you consider how much money it's made (and continues to make).

We should have at least 2 more maps at this point, and another permanent Game-Mode. Probably one more Hero than we currently have too.

The asshole side of me says we don't need more heroes now since people suck and don't know how to play the current ones. However I think its more of a content thing. If we got more consistent events or even a once a month event would add more to the game. More maps would be a start for me

See I think the events are solid so far but a couple of things on that note:

1/ The events need to last another couple of weeks longer per event, given how shitty RNG can be for people and not everything is viable to buy with Credits.

2/ They seriously need to get more Skins/Emotes/fluff added BETWEEN events, not just during them to sell boxes, it's incredibly shitty the way things are currently running.

I would like to see an In-Dev video like HotS for the whats upcoming, of course without giving away certain things they want to keep hush hush.
The events do need more breathing time and maybe add a variation to the event. Also events like Junkenstein should be around every month or another way to add it in. It doesnt need the Halloween theme to be viable

We're still only at what 27 or 28 heroes with 25 being the launch number? Their goal should be to fit 50 heroes. Now, as for balance, the game is closer to HotS (or League of Legends or Dota) than they or a lot of other people would care to admit and the audiences certainly overlap. They need to hit 50 or so heroes, doubling the original roster, to be going at the pace they are. If Valve and Riot (and even Blizzard) can balance 100+ heroes in their games then Blizzard can do it in Overwatch too.
