Get In The Zone
Get in the Zone!
A Zone will appear at a random location, and you need to quickly get inside The Zone, because the last player outside The Zone will be eliminated. A new Zone will appear until only one player remains.
If you are eliminated, don't worry! You can spectate the other players while waiting for the next round, where everyone will get a new chance.
You get a point each time you safely get in The Zone.
Shoot your opponents to knock them towards you, giving you a chance to get ahead!
You don't need to be the first to enter The Zone. You just have to make sure you're not the last!
There is also a time limit, simply to avoid problems with multiple people going AFK or for other reasons taking too long to get in The Zone.
You can play as either Pharah, Lúcio or Wrecking Ball. Those are the only ones I could think of with interesting movement mechanics suitable for this type of game.
Supports most maps, but not all. Zones are placed at specific locations for each map. Any unsupported map will use the default spawn points, so all maps are at least playable.
Notes about Overwatch 2
This game mode works fine in Overwatch 2, with a few things to note:
- HUD is not aligned properly.
- Some maps cannot be detected properly for specific Zone location setup. A workaround is in place, but that only works if the host's game client is in English. There are other workarounds that could be applied but I won't bother with those, and Blizzard might fix it soon anyway, who knows.
- Timer warning is sometimes not shown. it is supposed to trigger when the current Zone has 10 seconds left, but conditions on chased variables doesn't work yet.
Here are a few things I'd like to add/change for future versions:
- Support for more maps.
Let me know if you have any suggestions on how to improve this game mode!
