  • There have been instances where balance changes didn't feel effective
  • Specific examples of balance changes should be provided rather than making blanket statements about the game being terrible
  • Pro players and content creators should be involved in giving feedback on upcoming patch notes
  • Pro players have a different perspective as they focus on the competitive scrim environment, while content creators approach the game from a ladder perspective
  • The question arises whether the game should be balanced based on how the ladder plays or how pro teams play, considering stacking is not allowed at the highest level of play in Overwatch.
