Over the four years of Overwatch being out, Blizzard has struggled to add new heroes without utterly breaking the skillful base gameplay and much of the game's life has been plagued by chasing their own tales as they attempt to fix what they break as they change and add things. With the final hero for Overwatch 1 being released way back in April, Blizzard has had MANY months to finalize the balance of the game without the chaotic elements of new designs breaking the balance of the game. In this time, Blizzard has done many things to shape the gameplay, but none bigger than the mass nerfs to power down the game into a balance state that is very reminiscent of launch-era Overwatch before hero power or simple synergies got too crazy. The game is arguably the best balanced it's ever been, with various playstyles viable, map-depending and perhaps most importantly the reward structure of the game makes sense again, rewarding competency at the GAME of Overwatch rather than simply picking the right hero. Power creep Overwatch had serious rock, paper, scissors Overwatch, "Classic" Overwatch meta instead rewards either mechanical or Overwatch teamwork skill, bringing the game back to the rewarding gameplay we remember when we first bought the game. Now hopefully they keep this momentum into Overwatch 2...
