"Sometimes, it's hard to track what 11 other players are doing on the battlefield," Keller said. "Removing two of those simplifies everything. It allows players to understand everything around them and make better choices." He was also quick to point out that "Overwatch has changed over time." It might be hard to remember a time before Blizzard introduced role queue, but when the game came out it was possible for more than one person on your team to play the same hero. "We feel like this is the next step in the way Overwatch ought to be played," Keller said.
