  • H9Kil Kil_h9 (@H9Kil) reported

    @BlizzardCS Hello, I have a problem, and my things in Overwatch 1 do not come back to me, and I called technical support, and two weeks ago, my problem was not resolved. ):

  • twicecultist abby 🧸 diluc lap sitter (@twicecultist) reported

    the problem with the $20 overwatch 2 skins isn’t just is or is it too much— it’s the fact that it’s just unattainable to a large part of the population (esp as general goods skyrocket in price) and those people have a right to enjoy cosmetics & nice things in game too

  • Xecxciic The Hammer (@Xecxciic) reported

    @_Dogscraps I seem to remember Overwatch loot-boxes triggering a huge anti-gambling wave, so I think it's fair to say most people had an issue with them.

  • malu7v7 Malu7v7 (@malu7v7) reported

    @PaladinsGame Can y'all listen to the community and remove Kasumi until you fix it? Or nerf her as soon as possible? You are losing players thanks to Overwatch 2 and now you are annoying everybody with a broken no skill character. YOU ARE MAKING MY FAVORITE GAME NOT FUN!

  • Izzy32351725 Noze (@Izzy32351725) reported

    my current biggest problem is the people who call heroes in overwatch 2 "champs"

  • Nofaced_ Amezz (@Nofaced_) reported

    Finding it hard to enjoy any games especially with the state of overwatch @PlayOverwatch @OverwatchEU fix your ****** game pls

  • V3rtikalFrown (@V3rtikalFrown) reported

    Anyone know if they’re gonna fix the xbox profile statistics page for Overwatch? It doesn’t update ever @PlayOverwatch @BlizzardCS

  • beastmode2rwc beast (@beastmode2rwc) reported

    @PlayApex You can do this but not fix skill based matchmaking this is why Overwatch is better ******* goofy

  • itiskurtis butthead (@itiskurtis) reported

    so i can’t play overwatch 2 because i don’t have a “real phone number” (i don’t have phone service, i use google voice). just another reason to hate blizzard i guess lmao.

  • Vomit_Dragon Forklift Operator (@Vomit_Dragon) reported

    @LavarizStreams First the audio starts buzzing really loudly and then games freeze and crash to desktop. Not on Overwatch though.

  • Ghosts_twitch Ghosts*(TwitchAffliated)* (@Ghosts_twitch) reported

    @MstrkaozTTV Lol I had a bad time playing overwatch last night but na that **** broke, at least in OW1 he could die cause he couldn't move much, but now he can drive around n shoot his big gun.....he'll na fix that **** lol

  • FacePunchThor Discount Thor (@FacePunchThor) reported

    I think Overwatch 2 has broken support players. It seems like no one is playing support anymore. If you solo queue flex you’ll pretty much only get support. And all these new DPS players have no idea how to play but boy howdy do they know how to spam “I need healing”

  • OwReise Reise_OW (@OwReise) reported

    its so cool how blizzard promised to nerf the most broken heroes in the game on a specific date and then said "what if you had to deal with it for another 3 weeks wouldnt that be funny haha" @PlayOverwatch is literally already lying to their player base just like overwatch 1...

  • KusukusuMon Kusu | Hyena Comedian (Big booba/pec arc?) (@KusukusuMon) reported

    So apparently, overwatch 2 has broken laws in some of the countries it's available in due to Witch Kiriko. Because she is only purchasable in a bundle, Blizzard has broken a law in which you can not sell something as "discounted" without having a price for the standalone.

  • philipgame485 Philip R (@philipgame485) reported

    @Ms5000Watts You can’t expect that in a game like overwatch your dps could be a 7 year old kid the other might be a new player that’s why I’m saying if your in a team you wouldn’t have this trouble, anyway venting on Twitter comes with crap as I’m sure your aware

  • LemoneLil Yellowroom🍵- Funny Lemon man (@LemoneLil) reported

    If you are someone that's very self-critical please don't play Overwatch 2. It's not worth playing something in the hopes of feeling satisfied. Some might not have this Issue but I do and It's not worth the trouble, you'll just put yourself down. Also it's ******* blizzard.

  • R4ptor2125 R4ptor_2125 (@R4ptor2125) reported

    @lolokelmer @Vifer_ Marketing ain't overwatch's problem rn It's weird balancing decisons and the awful monetization

  • AshurPonline Ashur🤎Djinn VTuber🤎 (@AshurPonline) reported

    spending my night using one of those Overwatch aim trainers and i finally found out what my problem is with my aim and the only way to fix it is to get a new desk. literally throwing up

  • A_DerangedApe ethan (@A_DerangedApe) reported

    @Shrimpathiser Had an issue with Overwatch 2 as well, took me 4 days to fix it lol. Good luck

    @PlayOverwatch @Blizzard_Ent fix overwatch please ffs i just got disconnected for no reason while i had internet access talking with my teammates in discord call. got an hour ban for this bullshit and will prob get a season ban next if it happens agian

  • OctolingYellow Nucula Wolf (18+) read bio (@OctolingYellow) reported

    @Albinorhino_467 ya i agree all things aside from the broken characters, and other things i liked it better when i could play arcade and quick play games to get loot boxes and get skins rather than having to pay for it, free skins and loot boxes was the center of why i liked overwatch & etc.

  • Hidden_war X Æ A-12 (@Hidden_war) reported

    @FroggerOW I agree that some Moiras think that they are top dmg. But the main problem in Overwatch 2 is that everyone thinks that they are "let me solo her" and pro-tip: You're not, also we don't need 4 dps or a 100 dmg Reaper.

  • NillaLiddell Vanilla Liddell ENvtuber (@NillaLiddell) reported

    So has Overwatch 2 fixed the issue where when people moved accounts their gold guns and ALL of their skins would be back? Im still missing TONS of emotes and skins. Not to mention a goldgun being missing Like are they working on it or is it a lost cause? #Overwatch #overwatch2

  • Ani_Kad K (@Ani_Kad) reported

  • Waifvss Nathan (@Waifvss) reported

    @kotives Overwatch already knows Asians are the best but they are already squinting, so I don’t no problem here.
