For some time now, the GOAT has been very popular with Overwatch. For the uninitiated, this is one of the most widespread strategies in the current game META, which involves the use of 3 tanks and 3 healers. It is definitely effective but at the same time not much fun for the Overwatch League spectators.
Apparently, Blizzard Entertainment would be thinking of putting a brake on GOAT ahead of the start of Phase 4 of the Overwatch League scheduled for Friday, July 26th, introducing the block of roles. In essence, the teams would be forced to deploy 2 attackers, 2 tanks and 2 healers. Currently, there are no obligations of any kind in the selection of heroes, therefore it would be a rather important change.
To put these rumors into circulation was the Upcomer portal, which claims to be in contact with some sources within the Overwatch League organization. The report, in any case, was soon considered true by Baek “Fissure” Chan-Hyung, who played in the role of the tank for the Seoul Dinasty before announcing his withdrawal early this week: “I retired, so I’ll say it. In the next phase, the fourth, there will be a 2-2-2 block, it has already been decided, “he said during one of his transmissions. Despite this, at the moment we cannot consider it reliable information. In April last year, director Jeff Kaplan has already categorically ruled out an imposition of this kind in the past, stating that it could “damage the heart of Overwatch”. What do you think? Do you think the Overwatch League would benefit in terms of spectacularity?
