So in all seriousness, I understand that the que times may be longer in certain regards but on the IP side, this may in turn give us better que partners. Me personally, I don't play OW much these days but the story events and seasonals do bring me back for a time and I do dedicate the purchase of loot boxes every time. Despite what is faulty and how toxic the community can be, I appreciate the work that Jeff and his team puts in. This game got me wanting to play PvP and this is a rare thing for me, granted its for the golden guns but sometimes, I do derive a Wii little fun from it. I sincerely thank you Jeff and your team and I am interested in checking out this role que.

I hate this. Destroys creative composition shifting throughout the match. I just got back to the game and I'm on my way back out.

i hate role queue

Петър Петров he’s saying it gives more options and control, forcing you to select what role you’re gonna play until you leave and re queue is literally removing player choice, it forces you to select what your gonna do with no choice to change it

Please remove this 222. It is not fun and wasting everyone’s time. If people need 222 , why not form their own team?
If 222 is so great, why do you need to FORCE people with this?
If 222 is so great, show the number of player increase or decrease. I bet it has been decreased. Then, is it great? Open the vote and stop your subjective.

its December 2019 and i used to play and when i came back role queue has made this game terrible in my opinion because unless you want to wait 20 minutes to get into a game you HAVE to play as a tank or healer

@JP MUSIK aight thanks
JP MUSIK - 8 days ago
@khan omair just play qp classic lol. Theres nothing wrong with it. I actually like role queue for qp. Because it is more casual than comp actually. Nobody really follows any meta and its much less frustrating than comp
khan omair
khan omair - 8 days ago
@JP MUSIK Yeah I get that but who cares about team composition and chemistry when its casual, sure in ranked this would be really helpful but in casual its casual for a reason its made so people can fool around and play casually. I understand this can cause toxicity though so...
JP MUSIK - 8 days ago
@khan omair i honestly don't think Blizzard can fix queue times easily. Its more of a player based issue. But they did find a way on how to deal with it. There's also still QP classic in the arcade which allows you to queue up normally
khan omair
khan omair - 8 days ago
Even it did mean having garbage teams as long as its casual they should add this in ranked only.

Role queue sucks. 12 minutes to find a game and half the time it doesn’t even fill the lobby so then you have to sit there and queue again. Ruined the game
JP MUSIK - 9 days ago
There is a new feature called "while you wait" which allows you to gain access to the training room as a group, a deathmatch mode, or custom games on the ptr to help with the long queue times. The patch will go live next week

About the queue system ... I think it’s OKAY to choose your role at start for a game because of the 2-2-2 but... In game you should have an option to choose (unlock roles or not) because it sucks getting stuck with roles that ppl don’t rly know how to play with you could at least make a swap and change the gameplay.

Sacha Turkot role queue should never have been implemented, what’s the point of having so many characters if to have to axe a third of them before queueing, I’m wondering if they’re trying to ruin the game so people buy Overwatch 2

Blizzard: Adds Role Queue
Elder Rusty
Elder Rusty - 6 days ago
JP MUSIK because maybe it looks good on paper, but in its execution, it sucks, it axes off either a third, or two thirds of the playable heroes depending on your role before queueing up, especially when having a bunch of heroes is good in the first place for switching roles when the tides of a match shift, it was a stupid addition that’s done nothing but ruined the game

zanvoy - 2 months ago
can I get priority in the dps queue after playing several games as other roles?
zanvoy - 2 months ago
this change is so stupid. I regularly play all the roles. but now I can't play half the heroes I like because of obscene wait times. this game is suddenly a lot less interesting when I only bounce between 2-3 different heroes do to the new restrictions. I hate feeling like I'm being punished because I want to play pharah or ashe every now and then.
and no, quickplay in the arcade is not a solution. because it takes all the problems of the old system and amplify them. because it's full of all the dps mains who just want to play, quality of the match be damned.
