Playing solo in Overwatch is a mixed bag. On one hand, you could get teamed-up with great players who know the ins and outs of the game the way you do. But on the other hand, you could get teamed-up with players who spend more time whining than actually playing. Unfortunately, you don't really have a choice on the matter. Until now.

Blizzard has just released a new update, which is marked by the huge changes to the character Symmetra. Overshadowed by the assortment of changes on Symmetra is a new feature called "Stay as Team." This feature allows you to stick with your current teammates after a match. The exact mechanics of the feature isn't known yet. But according to GameSpot, if players want to stick together, they can vote on it, although not everyone is required to press the Stay as Team button.

However, the update that contains the Stay as Team feature is not yet fully implemented in the game. As of the moment, the update is currently in testing phase in the Overwatch Public Test Region (PTR). If you want to participate, simply follow the instructions here.

The Stay as Team feature is definitely good news if you're looking for more continuity in the game. It allows you to sort of form a bond with like-minded players, which should prove advantageous in the long haul. Like in all other team-based games, communication and cooperation are very important in Overwatch. Which should prove easier if you and your teammates are all on the same page.

Noobs will likely cry foul over the feature as it will potentially keep them together with other noobs. And you know how things would turn out in that kind of setup. This is because if good players are all grouped together, then there would be nobody else for noobs to end up with other than their kin. But veterans certainly won't mind that.

Currently, the Stay as Team feature is only available to PC players, with no official word yet if the same feature will be available to PS4 and Xbox One players.
