Experimental mode allows the team responsible for Overwatch to test changes outside the scheduled update cycle. Such a solution is becoming more and more popular in network games because it actually allows you to go beyond your schemas and go. Blizzard decided to do something unusual this time — give power to YouTubers and streamer.
From November 30, experimental mode for creators were made available in Overwatch. You will find amazing ideas related to the Balance, created in the heads of the creators of Overwatch content. Each of the creators listed will propose wild, extravagant and heavily twisted changes for heroes in individual roles:
Violet — Support
FLATS — Tank
Some — attack
Blizzard together with these creators also wants to present a new social tournament — Overwatch Flash Ops: Experimental Card Creator Cup. These competitions will be played in a special version of the game from experimental mode for creators. All maps outside of Paris will be available in the tournament. Formula 9 rounds for one loser applies.
Everyone can get acquainted with the regulations or subscribe to the Overwatch Flash Ops: Experimental Card Creator Cup. Records are already on, and they will be closed on December 11 at 1:55 Polish time, five minutes before the first round of the tournament. The tournament schedule is as follows:
December 11, 2:00 – 3:00 Polish time
December 11, at 22:00 – December 12, at 1:00 Polish time
December 12, at 22:00 – 0:00 Polish time
Blizzard marks that the balance changes introduced in this update do not reach the full version of the game, so there is nothing to fear. Description of changes in the experiment can be found here.
