Blizzard have revealed the most popular modes that have been created by players in the Overwatch Workshop.
The Workshop has proven to be an enormously popular feature, giving players the power to create a huge variety of custom game modes and share them with others.
Now that it’s been more than a month since the feature went live on May 21, Overwatch developer Keith Miron revealed on the Overwatch forums which modes have been the most popular since it hit the live servers.
Miron also offered some more general stats regarding the Workshop, revealing that roughly 290,000 unique game codes have been generated in the Workshop by 152,000 players, with 4.64 million players having played Workshop games.
Blizzard previously revealed the most popular Workshop modes from when the feature was on the PTR, but now that the full player base has had over a month to both create and participate in custom modes, the rankings have shifted significantly.
While many of the most popular PTR modes have now been displaced from this list, a version of card game UNO that was the number one mode during testing remains within the top 10.
Prolific Workshop creator DarwinStreams is responsible for the new most popular custom mode in the world, with his “OverFighter” mode that turns Overwatch into a full-blown fighting game, complete with side-on perspective, health bars, and even special “fatality” finishing moves.
The fighting game genre seems to be a popular one, with a Super Smash Bros-style mode also making it into the top 10. Unfortunately, Miron didn’t reveal the codes for the most popular global modes, but they’ve been added where known.
- 1. OverFighter - Z5XK2
- 2. Aim Training
- 3. 源氏练刀 (Genji Sword)
- 4. RPG
- 5. 혈압마라톤 (Blood pressure marathon)
- 6. Super Smash Bros - V24YG
- 7. Parkour - TC88S
- 8. UNO - WMVZC
- 9. 表白房 (White room)
- 10. Genji Heaven - BE8VH
Miron did, however, also reveal the most popular modes in Europe, in this case with codes included. There is quite a bit of crossover between the two lists, although in Europe it seems Darwin is even more popular, with his Sprint Racing mode also coming up third.
