Recently Blizzard allowed users to keep their profile private. This basically stopped players from being sidelined into one character or role simply because they have played it a lot. However, it also causes some problems in setting up the proper team composition in a game of Overwatch. Here is what Houston Outlaws’ Bani had to say about the advent of private profiles.
I think private profiles for Overwatch might be better for the game than people currently believe. A lot of people who might normally have been flexible often found themselves locked into a hero because people look at their career profiles and assumed they were a one trick.
