Overwatch 2 beta player redesigns ‘immersive’ scoreboard and fans love it

An Overwatch 2 beta player created an elegant redesign of the game’s updated scoreboard, and fans will want it implemented in FPS.

The long-awaited Overwatch 2 beta finally fell on April 26, when players got their hands on the sequel for the very first time.

The shooter features a handful of gameplay and visual changes, including reworkings for the heroes Bastion and Sombra.

Another big change for the team-based shooter came to the scoreboard, which has been completely reworked. Although fans have expressed that the change is a step in the right direction, a fan-mock-up of a new design makes players run in the mouth.

Overwatch 2 scoreboard concept art goes viral

Reddit user tomas1352 sent out their bids on what the OW2 scoreboard should look like, to great applause.

Tomas’ scoreboard takes the new “KDA” style screen and makes it transparent so that playback is not completely interrupted if it is pulled up.

On top of that, it is more compact and has character portraits in the middle of the screen instead of at the outer edge, making it easier to navigate on the go. Teammates’ ultimate icons also light up when ready.

In the comments section, Tomas explained their thought process behind the concept art, “I felt that the current scoreboard is too big and solid, which takes you out of the game. So I made a rough idea of ​​how I would like it to look. Took some inspiration from the latest concepts and took the important information into the center of the screen. “

The post instantly rose to the top of Overwatch Reddit with over 3,500 votes in under one day.

Users in the comments section expressed how much they loved the redesign. One said, “Now this is exactly what we need. Having it transparent means it does not block the screen (of course), and with this layout setup, your eye is immediately drawn to the important things. Absolutely perfect!”

In just the early days of the beta, it is possible that OW2 will get changes to the new scoreboard as well as a host of other features.

And if they change the scoreboard, fans hope Blizzard takes a note from Tomas.
