Hero Select Make the dream come true

General Discussion
show the system what heroes or roles you can fill and the system tries to match you with people who can also play more than one role/hero
Furthermore you could set what role you prefer, so that people play an actual 6v6.

This doesnt mean that you are forced to stick to a hero the entire game.
Hero switching can be very important, but keep in mind that the game is about skill. This game is no scissors stone paper.
you can still play your 3 tanks strategy etc. or can still the switch to winston to hold a point longer.
OW is kinda a rock/paper/scissors thing to a certain extent, keeping individual skill out of the equation.

Despite that, I'd kinda second this... Role preference or locking would be what some of these games need to pull people out of onetricking or not communicating, as well as improve matchmaking, although it'd be a bummer to see such a feature lock out or totally prevent creative strategies from taking games by surprise.

Like a stalemate between two very balanced and durable teams that you cannot break by going 5 DPS and a healer because the "role locking system" prevents players from going more than 3 DPS and requires at least X tanks/supports or something stupid.

Worth discussing, but in practice, probably far too limiting.

This is why you are barely gold . If you really think that this game is "kinda a rock/paper/scissors you will stuck low elo forever.
Someone mildly disagrees? Pull out the rank card. It will surely present your argument in a better light if you dismiss and ignore different opinions based on unrelated points.
