Blizzard Seeks to Reduce Overwatch Draws

Responding to a post on the Overwatch Forums, Blizzard's Jeff Kaplan agrees with the sentiment of the post complaining about draws in Overwatch. He says testing of changes meant to reduce their frequency will begin soon in the multiplayer shooter: "We have changes coming to the PTR very soon. These changes will greatly diminish the number of draws. More details inc. extremely soon." In a later post he makes a finer distinction about what game modes he's discussing: "We're also working on reducing Capture the Flag draws and elimination draws but those changes are further out."

It's called removing the drm and giving dedicated servers. Not like that's going to happen though with the fucking loot boxes.

I feel like there's something they could do to help match making. Last weekend I dropped ~400 points after getting team after team that seemed to have zero idea of how to play the game. Also I feel like you're punished for healing, how many points you get in comp seems to be weighted heavily on eliminations. As a healer you're not getting many of those. Not a huge difference in points, but it adds up when you're trying to rank, and seeing as you're playing a class everyone is apparently allergic to (at least in gold and below), you'd think you'd get more, or at least equal points. Anyways, salt I guess...
