Hela 22 karaktärer består Overwatch av och samtliga måste skötas för att balansen mellan spelarna ska fungera. Nu överväger Blizzard att ge lite mer kraft åt Symmetra, med motivationen att hon är den minst spelade karaktären.

I en intervju med Business Insider berättar Jeff Kaplan - spelregissören bakom Overwatch - att spelarna inte ska behöva vänta länge på att detta ska hända, om det nu sker.

"Changes to Symmetra are "definitely on our list, but I don't think we'll see a change go live until probably some time in November," säger han.

"You know, Symmetra's a really interesting hero to talk about. She's one of our least-played heroes, [but] you have to read the stats with a little grain of salt there: She's a hero who's very situational and she actually gets played a fair bit, but she gets switched off of. What happens commonly is players will play her on defense on the first part of a point, and then when they've lost that point, then they'll switch off of Symmetra. So, that definitely impacts her play time when you're looking at the stats."


Vad som specifikt ska ändras går Kaplan inte in på, men kallar det för en "safe change".

"I don't have anything really specific to talk about right now, other than she is kind of an internal project right now," säger Kaplan. "She is a hero we'd like to make some changes to. I think those changes wouldn't see the light of day until November, though, because we want to do a bunch of internal testing. It's one thing when we do something [minor] - like, we have a change to Junkrat on the [Public Test Realm] where his Ultimate activates faster, but it's a very incremental, safe change - whereas the type of changes we think need to happen to Symmetra require a lot more internal testing and discussion."
