  • Change the rate of health regeneration from health packs and abilities
  • Disable abilities and ultimate’s entirely
  • Change movement speeds
  • Limit team sizes
  • Limit map rotation

This can lead to a lot of interesting custom game variations, some of which have already hit YouTube. Here are some of these inventive modes include “Juggernaut” – a single team of one super health / damage boosted Roadhog or “tower defense” offensive attack heroes against a team of six Torb / Symetra defenders on a payload map.
