Overwatch developer Blizzard Entertainment has announced in a developer update video that a new experimental game mode called “Triple Damage” is slated to arrive on February 25, 2020 for players on all platforms. This mode replaces the traditional two Damage, two Support, and two Tank team composition with a three Damage, two Support, and one Tank structure. The goal of this experimental mode will be to see if it helps to improve Damage hero queue times in the role queue matchmaking system, while also testing how fun it feels to play.
What do you think of the idea behind this new mode? I can see how it may be incredibly frustrating for Tank players, but hopefully the balance changes Blizzard makes to compensate for the limited Tank positions help even things out.
Overwatch is available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
