    its December 2019 and i used to play and when i came back role queue has made this game terrible in my opinion because unless you want to wait 20 minutes to get into a game you HAVE to play as a tank or healer

      There is a feature on the ptr called "while you wait" which allows you to access the training room as a group, a deathmatch mode, or custom games while you are in queue to help with dealing with the wait times. Also the queues are that long because everyone wants to play dps. Which isnt something Blizzard can readily fix. The patch will be coming next tuesday along w the winter wonderland event

    Role queue sucks. 12 minutes to find a game and half the time it doesn’t even fill the lobby so then you have to sit there and queue again. Ruined the game

      There is a new feature called "while you wait" which allows you to gain access to the training room as a group, a deathmatch mode, or custom games on the ptr to help with the long queue times. The patch will go live next week

    About the queue system ... I think it’s OKAY to choose your role at start for a game because of the 2-2-2 but... In game you should have an option to choose (unlock roles or not) because it sucks getting stuck with roles that ppl don’t rly know how to play with you could at least make a swap and change the gameplay.

  • zanvoy
    zanvoy Місяць тому +1

    this change is so stupid. I regularly play all the roles. but now I can't play half the heroes I like because of obscene wait times. this game is suddenly a lot less interesting when I only bounce between 2-3 different heroes do to the new restrictions. I hate feeling like I'm being punished because I want to play pharah or ashe every now and then.
    and no, quickplay in the arcade is not a solution. because it takes all the problems of the old system and amplify them. because it's full of all the dps mains who just want to play, quality of the match be damned.

  • Fred Smith

    Can you update role que with 6 roles
    1. Main tank
    2. Off tank
    3. Main heal
    4. Off heal
    5. Low damage
    6. High damage
    I still get matches with no main tank player in role que and no off healer for defensive ult, this would balance the game no more 2 main tank or 2 high damage.
    I have some que times being 30 minutes for us to have no main tank and get role in a 5 minute match.
    Maybe forced team chat they had It in call of duty on last gen

    I dislike this greatly. Not to the point of quitting the game or anything, but it is a constant annoyance. It forces team comp in an unnatural way and takes away the ability to quickly swap into roles that arise situationally. There have been countless times when I or a friend realize a tank isn't needed, but an additional DPS or healer is. The ability to help compensate were your team is lacking is a natural part of any team base meta and this system ignores that altogether. Also, the queue times are extremely long and it's lubricous that I would need the whole party to back out of the queue just so I could switch to another role. I am all for better player interaction, but why do it like this? Why not incentives team builds by making exclusive skins that you can only get by playing certain roles. Or set a cap so that there can't be more than three of the same role on any team. That would help structure team builds but would limit adaptability in matches. This method just doesn't make sense to me.

    Okay, so i played Role queue for a while... and IT IS A DISASTER!
    let me explain... (Note; Please don't have negative comments. I just want everyone to know my experience in this...)
    In role queue, you CANNOT switch off your role, meaning you cannot play DPS as Healer. Meaning it disables you from a variety of heroes and combos you could come up with with your team.
    Second, TOO MANY DPSING!
    I am a DPS main, and in the morning when I really want to play Reaper, I have to wait 10 minutes for a match to start. ITS INSANE! Healer and tank doesn't take as long...
    Before this, you found a match, and boom! No need to wait 10 minutes. Sure, you can avoid this by grouping in a 6 stack and pray you don't wait more than 6 minutes for a match.
    Anyways, it also deprives you of hero selection as said earlier. If there's a throwing healer on the team, you can't do ANYTHING about it! You just have to struggle through the match with a DPS Moria on your team.
    Plus, I haven't even gotten to mention that people just leave the match.
    One time, I played a Overwatch match, I waited 10 minutes, and guess what? Someone leaves because of the hero selection...
    Then I had to wait ANOTHER 10 minutes.
    The role queue also doesn't let you play with anyone from previous matches, so if someone leaves, too bad. Your waiting again.
    Jeff, please take this as a sign that something needs to change.
    Even in quick play, I can't even barely find matches.
    Sure, u can play QP classic, but... Noone really plays that on my servers, and yes, more match waiting...
    Honestly, I'd rather have Goats back than to bear with the leavers, throwers, and just feeling powerless over my hero selection... Both QP AND comp mode!

      @JP MUSIK well, people are just retarded people. No matter the wait time, they play JUST to be trash. Jeff ruined Overwatch for me, and possibly the community as well!
      Not only that, he took away the core method of the game: Switching upon the situation. I CANT PLAY LIKE THIS! I feel very limited to my heroes, and I cannot bear this any longer.

    • JP MUSIK
      JP MUSIK 2 місяці тому

      Queue times are a problem that cant be easily fixed. DPS is a popular role that everyone wants to play. It shows in the qp classic. I believe wait times would be less annoying if you could access the custom game modes or practice range while you wait.
      The only issue i mainly have w role queue is just the current meta which is attempting to be nerfed

    This has literally ruined the game for me... I played for the first time since this Roll Que was added, and it's a nightmare. It literally took me 7 minutes to get a match in Quickplay. Are you insanse?! This literally quadruple and sextuples wait times. Good job guys, way to fix what wasn't broken.

    • JP MUSIK
      JP MUSIK 2 місяці тому

      @Thomas Pollock Their working on the issue but for now i guess just play around in qp classic or i believe if u queue with a friend on dps, time should go quicker

    • Thomas Pollock
      Thomas Pollock 2 місяці тому

      @JP MUSIK I understand that, but we just want to play the game... not sitting at loading screens. Quick play should be quick, first available games. Make a new "balanced" mode for role que.

    • JP MUSIK
      JP MUSIK 2 місяці тому

      Queue times arent nessisarily long because of role queue. DPS is just a really popular role that everyone queues for tbh

  • FrankieA
    FrankieA 2 місяці тому

    please for the love of god, take role queue out of quick play. It makes sense in comp, to some extent, but when you're playing qp, the point is that you can be flexible and learn new characters etc. and locking us into a role when you just want to play a game and chill out is so goddamn frustrating

    • JP MUSIK
      JP MUSIK 2 місяці тому

      Tbh i honestly think this made qp better because you don't have do deal with frustrating 5 dps games and the team comps are super laid back and you can play who you want without having to worry about losing sr.
      If u not a fan of it u could just do qp classic

    I believe that they should change role queue and add a feature that allows two people to swap roles, I main at least one of each role, so if a tank or a healer isn’t doing too well we can switch. I was thinking like a request system you can send to someone that allows them to swap

    If role queue is being implemented can we get some buffs for tanks (like Winston, dva) and healers (like brig). 222 totally makes the readjustments useless.

    • Logan Toft
      Logan Toft 2 місяці тому

      that is kinda the whole point to it being implemented. everyone used damage, so obviously if you use damage, it's gonna take you longer to find a match (think when I play, tank and support are normally around 1-2 minutes while damage is around 10). if you don't want to wait, though, just play the classic one in arcade
