Overwatch Not Ready for Player Role Queues Yet, Says Jeff Kaplan
Overwatch players might be clamoring for role queues and it might solve a lot of problems in an ideal world, but game director Jeff Kaplan says the game’s just not ready for it yet.
“There’s two versions the community has proposed, and neither is fully satisfactory to me,” said Kaplan in an interview with Kotaku. “One is the honor system version where I queue up as a tank, but actually I want to play McCree, and the game lets me do that since Overwatch is very much about fluidly responding to the enemy team’s composition. The other version is that it locks you in. I think that also hurts the spirit of the game.”
