    everytime i try to play overwatch i lag out im TIRED

  • mrbiack92 Glenn (@mrbiack92) reported

    @tripleWRECK @Ramblinnn Like overwatch system would be good. Player performance determine their own skill rating and use it to match players similar/within that skill gap. But first they got to fix solo vs solo/stack vs stack matchmaking in order for it to work effectively.

  • sketchiedetails Plastron (@sketchiedetails) reported

    @The_X_Button >playing overwatch there's your problem right there

  • Carlo_Maximus Carlo UltimusMaximus (@Carlo_Maximus) reported

    @BlizzardCS victory poses in overwatch PS4 not working properly, only a handful of hero poses shows up and the rest are not even a glimpse since the last 3 patches. Fix it please.

  • Rena_456 Rena (@Rena_456) reported

    Been back to playing overwatch these last days... but today is just not working out lol

  • JeSuisSnowflake Alexander Sipp (@JeSuisSnowflake) reported

    @UnsubRedun They need to fix her chestplate & helmet Aside from that she definitely looks like the Amazon knockoff of the chick from #Overwatch

  • sparkwuff dumbass walf (@sparkwuff) reported from Laguna Hills, California

    If Hanzo’s skin seems to be a problem, wait until you actually play Overwatch. Hanzo is a playable character.

  • LoveableNagato dont know who the fuck im maining (@LoveableNagato) reported

    @weebuwobble @WiFi_Waifu Hell yeah. I'm already there since I have an e-girl account for league and overwatch. Soon my money problems will be solved

  • sotnsot Sot (@sotnsot) reported

    It's pretty clear to me that if I'm playing Overwatch in a duo with someone, 8 out of 10 times we always seem to lose. The matchmaking service just doesn't seem to get duo-queues for some reason.

  • massQraid mass🙃raid (@massQraid) reported

    Problem: I wanna post as many clips as possible without seeming repetitive. I play almost all the heroes in the game yet I only get play with the same heroes. The way that #Overwatch saves highlights is extremely odd. Usually, it would take the worst best thing I did in a match🤨

  • RetroHurricane 80 dolls yelling "small girl after all" (@RetroHurricane) reported

    @Loudwindow man i would love if Overwatch acknowledged some of those issues but at the same time i like that it takes place in the brighter future where PoCs wouldn't have to put up with shit like that, or at least not as much as we do today

  • thecatsred big gay (@thecatsred) reported

    @Loudwindow Overwatch also suffers from the Bioware issue of painting a type of people as marginalized (omnics, mages) and then makes them Dangerous to give people in their worlds 'reason' to be cruel. Marginalized people irl aren't dangerous, they are typically /in danger/ from others.

  • Loudwindow Chwistopher (@Loudwindow) reported

    It just makes the world seem more alive, and even if those issues aren't the forefront of a character it's still there and gives them a lot of depth. The devs behind ***** Bomb deserve more credit tbh, and I wish Overwatch wasn't scared of talking about it like ***** Bomb does.

  • AksyonovaGalin Aksyonova (@AksyonovaGalin) reported

    @theboopinghack //I like the Story of Overwatch. But the game itself is plagued with issues.

  • tatitreasure tatianna (@tatitreasure) reported

    @moonspacia okay but u see the problem is i don’t have one and i need more people to play overwatch with me

  • euanwarframe euan johnson (@euanwarframe) reported

    @PlayOverwatch anyone having connection problems on Overwatch #overwatch

  • LeonScottKenny Gabriel (@LeonScottKenny) reported

    @WolfBodark95 @Ubisoft Overwatch Doesn't fix shit with Mouse+Keyboard users on consoles.

  • cadofett1 cadofett (@cadofett1) reported

    @Chixih Most guys don't have a problem with girl gamers, in fact most encourage them or are thirsty for them as mentioned. The main problem is that in competitive games like league or overwatch, it isn't very inspiring to win when someone says "I'm bad at the game, please don't flame"

  • watchyurionice thinkin bout kingdom hearts (@watchyurionice) reported

    overwatch problems are so dumb but being a "girl" on voice chat is haRD ENOGUH WITHOUT ME ACTUALLY HURTING PEOPLE'S SR

  • ShoujoWitch uwu (@ShoujoWitch) reported

    @TerraLu_ @Chixih Neither overwatch, fornite, nor league of legends have "scores". You're the problem.

  • OfficialKyanto Doghouse Gaming (Official Kyanto) (@OfficialKyanto) reported

    I've updated my Twitch channel for a cleaner look. Due to some recent anti-consumer issues I've been made aware (and some personal concerns in-game), I will no longer be active on Overwatch. Despite this, I will still host the Overwatch League (and rooting for @VancouverTitans)

  • Charismabonus94 Werewolf in Training 🌙 (@Charismabonus94) reported

    I’ve been having such terrible lag problems with overwatch the last couple days

  • JoseStitch1123 jose pichardo (@JoseStitch1123) reported


  • Charismabonus94 Werewolf in Training 🌙 (@Charismabonus94) reported

    Overwatch stop lagging challenge please I’m begging you

  • neosiuss 𝓃𝑒𝑜𝓈𝒾𝓊𝓈 @ RDR2 AND DA4 (@neosiuss) reported

    and you spent the whole game bitching about how overwatch is broken. just get over it

  • From972 Obliterated Preexisting Sexy Character⭐⭐ (@From972) reported

    I like how people are like "fix overwatch" how tf do you fix the godawful movement, gunplay that feels even more random than ******* Borderlands and mind-numbing map design

  • HobisRoseGold 💜💜💜HO[XIX]EOK ^♡^💜💜💜 (@HobisRoseGold) reported

    @LunaGoreTV I think you are confused. The meme format isn’t the problem. I’m talking about the “meme” of “fake gamer girl who really wants you to notice her”. Your perspective defends people taking everyday things wearing skirts and playing overwatch and making it about attention seeking.

  • orvynn ⋆ 𝓮𝓵𝓲𝓳𝓪𝓱 ⋆ (@orvynn) reported

    hmm my game keeps lagging to the point that i can't play overwatch tonight, guess i'll die

  • VXL200 Velocity (@VXL200) reported

    Overwatch is in a terrible state. I don't think you can fix it either. Too many heroes in the game anymore.

  • gyeonbin moon hyuna & lime's day。🌙 (@gyeonbin) reported

    @cyndatrill i was actually going to ask if you wanted to play overwatch but... lag... 🙃🙃🙃🙃🙃

  • PotterzillaS ᑭ໐††єᖇℤᓰᒪᒪᗩ (@PotterzillaS) reported

    To elaborate more. My biggest problem is that they don't want to take risks and be experimental anymore. Look at stuff like the K/DA music video, or the Overwatch animations, or even (Again) Into the Spider Verse. There's nothing out there like these, and I love it !

  • JosefMarthe Josef Marthé 🇺🇸 (@JosefMarthe) reported

    Never playing @overwatch again until they fix the ****** up balancing

  • KennieOmega ᴷᵉⁿⁿᶦᵉ 🇨🇦 (@KennieOmega) reported

    @unitlostgaming Overwatch has a, 4 people wanna be DPS Problem....

  • cronofeathers Mae (@cronofeathers) reported

    Overwatch is being so janky rn. The lag is so bad that I'm flying all over the screen or it keeps shoving me into walls

  • mazzaful ⭐MΛZ⭐ (@mazzaful) reported

    There's always that one Overwatch player that thinks that their definition of constructive criticism is throwing in the towel going "lmao my team is sucks, they're r*tarded!!" when they're the issue being loud to overcompensate for their small SR count (and **** size.)

  • littlevakarian dalish shepard. (@littlevakarian) reported

    i swear to god overwatch has got to be kidding me. I got a disconnect like 2 times today, another time the game just randomly stopped working. And i basically lost all the sr that i won through disconnects - and i was so ******* close to plat.

  • LordsReaper ReaperOfLords (@LordsReaper) reported

    @nerd_off_nerd @who_lols @Aidz_s @lporiginalg Because they NEVER purchase these games. They have no problem Latching on to a fandom. Like with every game before. There is a reason why there is something called "Fandoms ruined by Tumblr". Undertale, Overwatch, Fnaf, Cuphead. The list goes on and on.


    i deadass streamed overwatch for 13 hours might have a problem...

  • BlissTheCreator Dana White (@BlissTheCreator) reported

    Everyone complaining about GOATS, complained about DIVE and complained about the META before that. I don't think the issue is the actual comps being played. I think it's that we're forced to see them all the time. But a competitive ban system could help fight that. #overwatch

  • Marc7l Marcel ⚔️ (@Marc7l) reported

    @MKWiiBynt @Rheileyy Minecraft is a gay game anyways. When we have a 49 year old man raging and screaming over a children’s block game like a kids who’s parents who buy them a candy bar at the ****** grocery store, then we have an issue. @loolitsalex stop playing mc and play Overwatch 😂

  • FallenJoran Joran, the FallenTitan (@FallenJoran) reported

    I've canceled streaming today. I thought that BO4 was the reason I was having internet issues, but its the weather that is affecting my streams for BO4 and Overwatch. I do apologize for the inconvenience. :(

  • kuiperbole Kuiperbole (@kuiperbole) reported

    Accidentally stayed up till 3 playing Overwatch again. Nothing an energy drink before work tomorrow morning can't fix 😵

  • _iwatooshi_ Mathias🏳️‍🌈🇳🇴 the ocean burned (@_iwatooshi_) reported

    @taimatsuru It also seems like the December patch was a huge problem for a lot of people with performance, FPS and crashes, possibly because of the event being added that patch.. I know you've had problems before because of the w10 updates but maybe this time it was overwatch itself

  • _Goan__ Galast (@_Goan__) reported

    Playing ranked in #Overwatch is the most frustrated thing I've ever done in my life, please fix the game.

  • Liquidspell Liquidspell (@Liquidspell) reported

    @AskPlayStation I have a problem with my library,Overwatch doesnt load in at the library,i can't download it it stucked i tried everything.I have the origin version but i can only find goty edition in the store help me!!

  • boomerbkYT boomerbk [YouTuber] (@boomerbkYT) reported

    @PlayOverwatch @Blizzard_Ent @BlizzardCS I think there's a problem with Overwatch launching on high-end computers. It's starts to launch at a black screen then closes.

  • Gloriousdownfal piri piri sauce lesbian 🐝 @ RWBY Spoilers (@Gloriousdownfal) reported

    Played some overwatch with @Vaswanii_ yesterday and this ***** even tho she was lagging like my brain in the morning, she was carrying me tf up 👀👀👀

  • _tessg tess (@_tessg) reported

    I'm finally getting around to overwatch. I've been having internet issues lately. I couldn't connect earlier. It even tried while I was in skirmish. So I'm not sure if comp is safe to play.

  • NJVJoker VirtualJoker (@NJVJoker) reported

    Regarding today’s streaming issues. I am working to figure out new streaming settings to get back up and able to stream overwatch. I’m having really weird issues with obs and will try to fix but can’t guarantee anything. It would be nice if obs didn’t pull from the frame buffer

  • FurukawaXIV Manny (@FurukawaXIV) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent @BlizzardCS @ATVI_AB @ATVIAssist @PlayOverwatch @KelloggsUS Can the Overwatch dev team over at Blizzard please fix whatever the system in place for these “Loot Boosts” from the Kellogg’s promotion is because the system is clearly not working or even implemented.

  • maturemanv98 Seth (@maturemanv98) reported

    Overwatch crash making me lose 80 sr 😃👍

  • DARK82515547 Dark (@DARK82515547) reported

    @KalebPrime @SmugJakuReturns Because blizzard isn’t worried about balancing anything look at overwatch and WOW’s state they don’t fix shit they release “content” to hide the problem and keep people distracted from major problems with new characters and maps in overwatch’s case and new areas in WOW’s

  • ryleewutt rad ry (@ryleewutt) reported

    I just met the most interesting guys on overwatch the lagged out of the game. screw you @WWUResTek fix the WiFi.

  • rvmin_club r v m n (@rvmin_club) reported

    @comcastcares needs to make a new years resolution in the improvement of both service and internet quality. Instead investing into an Overwatch team.
