Moira has undergone a controversial change in Overwatch 2
Blizzard’s new Overwatch 2 patch includes a contentious tweak to Moira, which has some players questioning balancing priorities. With the release of Overwatch 2 and the transition to 5v5 team engagements, the gameplay balance altered heavily in favour of Support characters. As a consequence, Overwatch 2 players are leery of alterations that enhance Support or encourage them to deal more damage. But that’s precisely what Blizzard looks to have done to Moira.
Overwatch 2’s supports are more adept than ever at enduring damage on their own. Because of how Overwatch 2 queues function, some DPS players are even queuing as Support and concentrating only on dealing damage. It’s sparked some debate, with some Overwatch 2 players claiming that Supports are the strongest characters in the game when they should be the most susceptible. Blizzard, on the other hand, has shown no signs of a problem.
