Overwatch 2 has been out for a while now and players are wondering why the iconic post-game stat cards and votes from the first game were ever removed.

In the original Overwatch, players were greeted at the end of each match with a series of stat cards that documented the game’s top players and certain stats they had.

For example, a skilled Junkrat player can have a card that says “8 Riptire kills” and anyone still in the lobby can vote for him as player of the match.

Amazingly, this feature was pulled from Overwatch 2 post-match, despite the game giving players more tools than ever to see how others are performing in the game with the introduction of the leaderboard.

That said, players are urging Blizzard to bring the feature back in a future update.

Overwatch 2 players want stat cards and votes to return post-game

In a series of posts on Reddit, Overwatch 2 players reminisced about the old stat cards and hoped Blizzard could bring them back.

“It seems to me they put more emphasis on the Endorse Players thing and that’s why they removed the endgame cards,” one player theorized. “They don’t want you to use the old end cards, just the useless approval system. How stupid, I loved the old end cards.

“I miss cards, medals for statistics and being ‘on fire’. I see absolutely no reason why any of those features needed to be removed,” said another.

In another thread, users joked that the current post-match screen doesn’t give them enough time to talk, but some users continued to comment on why they want votes to return.

“There’s no point in hanging around anymore, I find during the POTG I just leave when my team has lost,” explained one player.

There’s no telling if Blizzard will add the feature back, but hopefully it will return sooner rather than later. Season 2 kicks off on December 6, and it would be a big surprise if the developers revealed that cards and votes would pay off in a big way.
