Overwatch is a shooter MOBA title that has you take control of a menagerie of heroes. These heroes are all unique, and as such, developer Blizzard has to constantly update and tweak the characters in order to ensure that everything is balanced.
However, new changes to the hero known as Bastion has gotten the ire of the Overwatch community very quickly, so much so that Blizzard’s Jeff Kaplan went to Battle.net to assure fans that fixes are being made right now:
“Thanks for the thoughtful feedback here, everyone. We know Bastion is a big focus for everyone right now. I’ve been playing online games since they existed and now working on them for almost 15 years. One of the things I’ve learned about online communities is that change — any change — can cause a lot of anxiety. Back when I was working on World of Warcraft, I used to say that if we mailed 500 gold to every player, the community would find some way to be upset about it… because change is bad.
With that said, we’ll make some changes to Bastion and put them up on the PTR this morning. We’d love to hear your feedback about those changes when they go up. I don’t have details right now because we’re still making the changes!”
When these changes could be implemented is anyones guess.
