Overwatch’s Controversial Tie Break Rule Changing Again

As part of a recent update, developer Blizzard changed how Overwatch ties are resolved in competitive Assault games. After “a tremendous amount of feedback,” the developer has decided to tweak the system again.
Before the patch, draws were decided by racing to capture a tie-breaker point. The update changed that to a progress-based system: “If neither team successfully captures the objective, a winner can be determined based on which team captured the largest portion,” Blizzard said at the time.
This created a problem, however. As Blizzard explains in a new blog post, it meant that teams only needed to reach 1% capture to potentially win a match.

Whedon is no stranger to star-studded superhero movies, having helmed The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron for Marvel. He i..
