It seems like a new composition has been receiving a lot of attention, also seen in the Overwatch League after the 2-2-2 role queue. The team composition consists of Orisa and Dva as tanks, Mei and Reaper as damage dealers and Moira and Lucio as the team’s healers.

The composition is being referred to as Goats 2.0. 

Goats is a composition that consists of three healers and three tanks. D.va, Reinhardt, and Zarya as tanks and Lucio, Zenyatta and Moira or Ana as healers, Goats has been the dominating composition in higher ranks and professional gameplay.

Now that the Overwatch developers have forced a 2-2-2 role queue for competitive and quick play mode, the traditional Goats no longer exists.

Stylosa talked more briefly about the new composition and explained how the game play essentially works with the such heroes.

Jeff Kaplan stated that he believes this change won’t limit the community’s creativity to create new compositions and the community did deliver.

The new composition somewhat has the same objective as the old Goats, rushing on to the point and over sustaining the other team. What’s important to note is that Roadhog, Orisa’s best off-tank she synergizes with doesn’t exist in this composition, simply because there’s no easy target to hook and take out.

Reaper, Mei, and Moira are all capable of surviving a Roadhog, along with Dva using her matrix to eat his shot after a successful hook.

It is also important to note that the new composition is strong against Dive composition.

It’s really interesting how the competitive gameplay will change up after role queue, and definitely, this will not be the only new composition we’ll have.
