I was gonna post this on reddit but all i see are highlight videos so im just gonna post this here,

Minimap in Overwatch would it be good or bad?


We deliberately avoided adding a minimap. In games like CoD, HotS and LoL the minimap becomes an absolutely crucial, strategic advantage for those who divide their time looking at it. We also wanted to reserve "enemy awareness" moments for certain hero abilities like Widowmaker's ultimate or Hanzo's Sonar Arrow.

We do plan to add a spectator map for a better esports viewing experience. But philosophically we were opposed to adding a minimap to the HUD for gameplay reasons.


The spectator map feature is now live in Overwatch specator tools including Custom Game, the Replay Tool and the Overwatch League & World Cup Replay Viewers.
