With the recent release of Overwatch’s Competitive mode, it should come as no surprise that there are some grumblings about certain features that are proving to be less than ideal.

From Bastion to Zenyatta, each of Overwatch’s heroes have at least one hero that is a direct counter to them.

Overwatch will not feature a single-player campaign, but there will be a plot according to Blizzard
This year’s edition of Blizzcon was a very special one because after nearly two decades Blizzard finally announced a new IP. Overwatch has been the subject of speculation for many months after it was revealed back in April that the company trademarked that name.
