Possible Vanilla Overwatch Game Mode in Arcade?

General Discussion
Hello,
This post will be about something that I believe would be good for the Arcade. And that is a Vanilla gamemode.

For those who aren't aware about the word "Vanilla" it means an unchanged/original version of a game. Overwatch could use this type of Arcade Mode to give newcomers and returning players the experience of what it was like playing back in May 2016.

I believe that everything should be returned to it's previous self. All the buffs and nerfs restored. All abilities that were removed... restored.

Use only the original 21 Heroes:
Tracer
Winston
Törbjorn
Widowmaker
Reinhardt
Lúcio
Mercy
D.Va
Zarya
Zenyatta
Hanzo
Genji
Reaper
McCree
Pharah
Junkrat
Mei
Symmetra
Roadhog
Soldier:76

Use the original 12 maps:
Hollywood
Volskaya Industries
Dorado
Route 66
Numbani
Lijang Tower
Watchpoint: Gibraltar
Temple of Anubis
Nepal
Kings Row
Hanamura

I even recommend changing the HUD to it's original release form (maybe even use the Closed Beta HUD).

I believe that this would not only bring back nostalgia in the future,it would also help in getting new people used to the basic mechanics in Overwatch.

I hope you (and blizzard) will think about this and leave your opinion in the comments. Thank You.
