Overwatch’s approach to scoring to be different.


Speaking with Rock, Paper, Shotgun, Overwatch’s game designer Geoff Goodman revealed that there will not be a scoring system in the traditional fashion of assessing who is a better player. Rather, players will be shown their stats such as the amount of damage they have given. Although a player will not be able to clearly see their ‘place’ in a match, Geoff states that, “it gives you a good understanding of how well you’re doing and streamlines the whole thing and cleans everything up.” Geoff states that a scoring system has its “problems” and hopes that this different approach will be for the better.
