This New Overwatch Feature Will Make Solo Players Happy
Playing Overwatch can be fun. Actually, it always is. However, when you're playing with people who are born losers and trolls, it's a different kind of thing. And this is what most solo players usually experience, though there's really nothing they can do about it. But hey, Blizzard is up to something that will benefit these kind of gamers.
According to GamesRadar, the studio is set to release a feature that'll give solo players leverage in matchmaking. Specifically, a particular button will be added to the title's post-game screen. It's going to be called "Stay With Group."
Blizzard's very own Jeff Kaplan proposed the idea of having such Overwatch feature. This was discussed in a video (embedded below) released by the video game company on YouTube. The footage was merely a Developer Update for Symmetra's forthcoming redesign, but part of it discusses the supposed button.
As the name suggests, the "Stay With Group" feature allows players to stay with their current party. For instance, they grouped up in the game and they clicked. If a player wishes to stay with them, he can do so by clicking the button that can be found in the post-game screen. Any players who clicks it will automatically group up and battle alongside once again.
This Overwatch feature automates the process of looking for the other players to team up again. And since the latter proves to be time consuming, the button is just really ideal and timely. So for anyone who's tired of solo queueing, this should lift their spirits.
As of this writing, the feature will be scheduled for deployment in the game's PTR (Public Test Realm). There's no exact date, though, as to when. But hopefully, it'll arrive soon so it can be unleashed to the official servers.
