The Overwatch 2 Beta has wrapped up, and we would love to share and update on the Mercy and Moira changes!
Another simple way to see the distinction is, strategy is what you want to do, tactics are the way(s) you get there.
I usually frame it as
Goals = Why
Strategy = How
Tactics = What
but I can see your take as well
Tactics are not the same thing as strategy, although they are related.
Strategy describes a macro plan of action
Tactics describe the moment to moment choices made to achieve a strategic end.
If I could frame this statement, I would.
This distinction between tactics and strategy (goals, strategy, tactics) is a commonly understood paradigm in the business world, and it definitely can also apply to your gaming experiences.
It’s fair to say that 5v5 is more tactical, with the ability to individually carry being more prevalent. In a competitive setting tactical excellence is important, but the team with the better overall strategy will win when tactical excellence (individual game sense/skill) is relatively even
Hey everyone, sorry if any of you having issues with earning Overwatch League tokens.

Yes, any of the premiere encores do work. I will note they are doing things a little differently this week by showing it as a series of scheduled premieres so everyone can catch their favorite teams before the next set of live matches begins. I do recommend keeping an eye on it and making sure that after each premiere broadcast you are tuned in to the next one.
