Overwatch 2 Players Want Blizzard to Add Lucioball During FIFA World Cup
A sizable amount of Overwatch 2 players want Blizzard to bring back an old game mode in celebration of the ongoing FIFA World Cup.
In celebration of the ongoing FIFA World Cup, many Overwatch 2 players are asking Blizzard to bring back the Lucioball game mode. Though it was added to the original game in 2016, Lucioball is yet to make its first appearance in Overwatch 2, though fans remain hopeful.
Lucioball, originally an alternate game mode for Overwatch, pits two teams of three players, all of which are playing Lucio, against each other. Players must score in the opposing team’s goal as much as possible before time runs out in order to win. Overwatch‘s original Lucioball had a steady stream of players & even received a ranked mode during the height of its popularity, which inspired players to truly master a minigame many had deemed to simply be a gimmick. Though a 2020 Overwatch event introduced Lucioball Remix, which tried to make things more chaotic through the use of two balls & several key map changes, Lucioball did not make a return for 2022’s Overwatch 2 title.
However, if there was ever a time to bring back a game mode such as Lucioball, which is obviously inspired by English football, it would be during the FIFA World Cup, which is held every four years. The 2022 tournament is currently ongoing, with games such as Minecraft adding content to celebrate the World Cup, but there is no sign of Lucioball on the Overwatch 2 servers. Takings matters into their own h&s, Reddit user Xevengar took to the platform in order to beg Blizzard to add the once-loved game mode to Overwatch 2, at least for the remaining duration of the tournament.
The post has gained a lot of traction, receiving thous&s of upvotes that propelled it toward the top of the Overwatch subreddit, though Blizzard is yet to make a formal response or hint at the possibility of a Lucioball return. Alongside Lucioball, many players are also requesting that Blizzard add the ability to cycle between custom menus in Overwatch 2.
When factoring in the time it would take to develop, design, & test a new Lucioball for Overwatch 2, it is looking increasingly unlikely for the fan-favorite game mode to make an appearance during this year’s FIFA World Cup, though one can hope that Blizzard will see the support for Xevengar’s post & make plans to reintroduce Lucioball to the franchise in the not-so-distant future. Players not so familiar with the support might want to learn how to master Lucio in Overwatch 2 to gain the competitive edge in case Lucioball does one day return.
Overwatch 2 is available now on PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, & Xbox Series X/S.
