Jeff Kaplan is the face of the Overwatch development team and does an amazing job of communicating with the Overwatch community about everything the game entails.
One topic that often comes up is the issue of character balancing and how it affects the ever shifting meta of Overwatch.
Deciding to give the community his own thoughts on the current state of character balance, Jeff Kaplan wrote a very lengthy post on a forum thread talking about how Overwatch's update and balancing cycle is very slow and that the dive meta needs to go.
Huge post from Jeff Kaplan about his opinion on balance, the dive meta, and heroes in general. https://t.co/45xq7YADZJ - Top post!— r/Overwatch (@overwachreddit) July 8, 2017
One big takeaway from Kaplan's post is that he believes that Overwatch is currently balanced.
