You know what would fix all of this? More characters. Seriously, there’s no reason that they shouldn’t be able to drop at least one a month or even two. Paragon heroes are wayyyyyy more detailed, and wayyyyyy harder to balance, but we get a new one every three weeks. Gigantic, which granted, their heroes aren’t as detailed as Overwatch heroes (but still definitely seem harder to balance), drops a new one once a month.
Unlike those two games, Overwatch heroes don’t take as much to balance them. They don’t have the scaling MOBA factor that the other two games have. It’s not hard. They’ve literally layed the ground for four potential heroes in the future (Sven, Hammond, Maximillean, The Queen). All they have to do is apply themselves. It’s not that difficult.
Just to add, before I post this, that Paragon started with less heroes than Overwatch, and started AFTER Overwatch, but has way more heroes than Overwatch does. Paragon, at the time of writing this, has 36 heroes. Paragon started with 13 heroes. Over the course of a year and a half or so, they have dropped 23 new heroes.
Gigantic doesn’t have as many heroes as Overwatch, but is gaining new ones at a muchhhh faster rate. At the time of writing this, Gigantic has 22 heroes. Gigantic started with 16 heroes. They have since gained 6. Overwatch has only gained 4. Overwatch drops heroes at an average rate of 3 months, with Gigantic dropping heroes at an average of 1 month.
By this logic, for every 1 hero Overwatch drops, Gigantic will gain 3. Overwatch will likely drop their newest hero next month. Therefore, if we look at the release rate, Overwatch will have 26 heroes next month, and Gigantic will have 23. Within the timespan of this, by the time Overwatch has 27 heroes, Gigantic will have 26, and by the time Overwatch has 28 heroes, Gigantic will have 29, surpassing Overwatch in hero count.
- Overwatch has 25 heroes.
- Gigantic has 22
- Paragon has 36.
- Overwatch started with 21.
- Gigantic started with 16.
- Paragon started with 13.
- Overwatch releases heroes once every 3 months.
- Gigantic releases heroes once every month.
- Paragon releases heroes once every 3 weeks.
- Gigantic will have more heroes than Overwatch in (around) 6 months time.
Seriously, guys. This is a big issue.
