Overwatch: Blizzard is working on a better spectator mode


Stupid colours.

Blizzard is committed to creating easier ways for spectators to enjoy Overwatch eSports events, the developer recently confirmed.

The biggest problem with Overwatch at the moment is team colours will change from blue to red depending on the perspective of the player being watched. For each player, blue will always represent their team, while red, the enemy.

“We’re working on a better team coloring system right now,” Blizzard’s Jeff Kaplan said on the game’s forums.

“We’ve put significant efforts against this issue. We agree, it’s a top issue and there are a lot of areas for improvement. Our results and progress has been really good and I have faith the team will deliver something that raises the quality of the experience significantly.”

Overwatch is currently available on Windows PC, Xbox One and PS4.
