Brigitte ruined, thanks I hate it :)
It feels like very early days for Overwatch 2. The tank reworks and 5v5 are causing a substantial change in playstyle. DPS feel more dangerous and supports more vulnerable than before. The game feels faster and more deathmatchy now and some characters don't really have tools to handle that (yet?) but it's the first beta, I'm sure lots of things will change still.

I really like almost all of the changes. My only complaint is that as a healer, a good widowmaker completely changes the game for me, in a not so fun way. Healers don't really have the tools to deal with one so you have to rely on your one tank to shield you, or your DPS has to deal with her. You have to change your playstyle to less brawly and more hide and heal, which I personally do not enjoy. To be fair, she already did this in OW1, but now you have less tools to deal with it.
Not nerfing Genji/Tracer when Cree lost flash bang to be replaced with some bs grenade, lol okay.
Overwatch characters aren't called "classes"...smh
overwatch 1 = 2
Still not a fan of the removal of one tank per team, now there's too much strain on the single tank.If there was a role they were planning to trim down, I would've expected one of the healers to go - and I say that as a healer main. they're WAY fewer than any other option. They still might - 1 tank, 2 dps 1 healer sounds more reasonable in this case, but I still think the 6v6 model was better. Games feel too one sided now. Oh, your tank is a bit better at their job, or they get ahead first and kill the enemy tank? Now you win practically in one big push, game's over in 5 minutes.
This will surely disappoint the dozen of fans
