Die hinter der Overwatch Legue steckenden Mitarbeiter von Blizzard Entertainment versammelten vor Kurzem wohl eine Gruppe von ausgewählten Mitgliedern der Liga und bekannten Mitgliedern der Community und sprachen zusammen mit diesen Personen über mögliche Änderungen an den Helden von Overwatch. Zusammen mit diesen Spielern erarbeiteten die Verantwortlichen insgesamt 45 unterschiedliche Spielbalanceänderungen für Overwatch, die einen Großteil der Helden des Spiels betreffen und erfahrenen Spielern eine neue Spielerfahrung bieten sollten. Diese 45 Anpassungen möchte das Team vom 22. bis zum 29. März 2021 in das Testlabor einbauen, sodass alle daran interessierten Personen ausprobieren können, wie sich das Spiel mit diesen Veränderungen anfühlen würde.

Zusätzlich dazu haben die Mitarbeiter von Blizzard Entertainment auch noch das neue Flash Ops Experimental Card Tournament rund um diese Balanceänderungen entworfen. Dieses Turnier soll vom 26. bis zum 28. März 2021 online stattfinden, einen Preispool von $40,000 besitzen und sowohl Profis als auch Neulingen offen stehen. Wer ein Turnier mit diesen Balanceänderungen austragen möchte, der kann sich hier mit seinem Team anmelden. Ansonsten werden einige Runden aus diesem Turnier direkt live auf dem Overwatch League YouTube Channel ausgestrahlt, weshalb selbst die nicht an der Teilnahme interessierten Personen einen recht guten Blick auf die Auswirkungen der Balanceänderungen und den Ablauf des Turniers werfen können.

Folgend findet ihr weitere Informationen zu den Anpassungen an den Helden, dem Turnier und den Livestreams.


Experimental Card Tournament: Hero Changes, How to Play, and Where to Watch

We gathered an experienced (and opinionated!) group of pro players and influencers—Seoul Dynasty damage-dealer Jong-Ryeol „Saebyeolbe“ Park, Chinese Overwatch League caster Alan Gai, Korean content creator Jaewon Kim, Toronto Defiant streamer Francine „Fran“ Vo, Boston Uprising damage-dealer Terence „Soon“ Tarlier, and Los Angeles Gladiators tank Indy “Space” Halpern—to discuss which hero changes they’d like to see in Overwatch.

But this wasn’t just a fun get-together; the assembled panel was also figuring out hero tweaks for all of us to play and enjoy.

After hours of spit-balling and deliberation and some additional back-and-forth after the panel to confirm a few final specifics, the team has settled on a collection of more than 45 hero balance changes that will be implemented in an Experimental Card for everyone to play in-game from March 22-29. This set of experimental balance changes will also be used for a special public Flash Ops Experimental Card Tournament from March 26-28.
