Between rumors of secret heroes at launch and its May 24 release just around the corner, Overwatch is on the tip of every tongue. How many tongues? At least 9.7 million, the amount of players who partook in the game's open beta.
Blizzard's provided statistics on those players. For example, they represent over 190 countries, and played a grand total of 37,623,607 matches in 4.9 billion minutes—or 9,380 years.
Out of 21 heroes available at launch, four stood out from the crowd in the Overwatch open beta: Soldier 76, Reinhardt, Mercy, and Widowmaker. Love is fleeting, though, as 271 million hero swaps took place mid-match.
The number of thank-yous from Blizzard? Infinite. Dawwww.
