Overwatch Issues ReportsLatest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
@t8styham Everything is better than OverWatch at this point hopefully they can finally fix it
@falsettoxiv @Falcon87456 @BumbDastard the spectator client is top down, which avoids the Overwatch problem and honestly looks pretty good (though it ******* breaks all the time because Hirez doesn't give a shit about their game having bugs since it doesn't effect skin sales)
@BlizzardCS I like the update in Overwatch to balance it out when selecting heroes but I'm having problems finding a match. I tried yesterday for over an hour and couldn't find a single match amd same thing today. I only found a match when I chose tank but I don't play tank
I don’t care if this ruins any possible chance of having a career in Overwatch but **** Falcon Movers. Dogshit trash ass scamming company ran by complete retards who somehow have worse communication issues than bronze players.
@FPScarol QC as itself is no a problem, game itself is quite fun, but I can't get behing Overwatch type ultimates on my Quake game. Granted they are not insta win button as in OW, but still seems out of place and makes all characters unnecessarily uneven.
automatic fix for overwatch. players with high endorsement levels get priority when it comes to getting games.
Mfw when I want to play overwatch for bit I forgot I didn't take off auth thing on my phone (that's not working right now) so I guess no overwatch for bit OH WELL Sent them request to get it removed, but dunno how long that'll take.
Overwatch ruined itself for me I can’t stand the game even casually I just lose my mind **** Overwatch stupid broken ass useless game. **** Overwatch 2 too not even wasting my money AHDJAHSJA
I’m sad Overwatch is a dead game 😵 I’ll still follow OWL, but hopefully they can fix the shield meta. Kind of defeats the purpose of a FPS when you can’t click foreheads through 2400hp damage shields
@avizenith ok yea i got no clue whats going on with it ik fort had that gpu issue, but in terms of overwatch idk why thats happening
I have a computer to fix but **** today idk what to do I'm gonna drink and play overwatch and then hug my handsome man when he comes home
@zMCRK @TierMaker Please be joking. Fortnite is awful compared to Overwatch. Sure, constantly updated. But also constantly broken. I think this is satire but if it isn't then there you go.
for real, if i could actually shoot the stuff i aim at in this first person shooter, i probably never woulda switched to overwatch in 2016 the shooting is a legitimate problem in tf2 and it ruins the game
I'll stream Overwatch too if they ever get their problems fixed. Mostly the cheaters and the shitty double shield/bunker meta.
@FionnOnFire what about riots culturing NA players specifically to act like little babies🙊 it's not quite overwatch level, but CS:GO and Dota don't have same "anti-competition" problem to the same extent if u wanna "invest" u need to take on shitty "culture", just American dolla' wont halp
@JOHNofWAR Overwatch not working on the Switch. Next you'll be saying Blizzard doesn't actually care about every voice matters.
Whatever happens at BlizzCon is really going to make or break Overwatch. I went from playing hours on end everyday, to not even really caring to get on anymore. Fix your shit, Blizzard. Also make OG dive come back.

@AirJapes @EASPORTSFIFA @eMLS Comp scene is a mess. LoL, Overwatch, csgo, Halo, no other game has pay to win mechanics in their comp scene, broken servers, bad prizes, and a weekend game mode. I actually feel bad for players that are in comp fifa. But not if they’re blatantly cheating
@CptnInappropri8 I have the same problem when I go from overwatch to Destiny....lol
sometimes you're on an awful team but one thing redeems the round, like a super aggro Soldier 76 named 'TheMcChicken' every time his name popped up in the kill feed I lol'ed ty for your service, 👑 #Overwatch
Sadly I have not been active I have been fixing a few recording problems I will start working on a overwatch or fortnite montage later this week
I find it crazy how even major Overwatch streamers are voicing about how bad of a state Overwatch is in but nothing has been done about it. Blizzcon is probably going to be the final straw for almost everyone so it better fix everything and more or this game is done for.
@PapaVey I did try tackling the issue by playing Overwatch and other similar games with a mic some years ago, but I just never got comfortable doing so. It just feels physically impossible to get the voice out if I'm all by myself 💦💦
@Nattadash Yep, done all that. I did have some ad glitch, Overwatch was lit up like it had a notification but there was nothing there, switching to another server let me clear that, but the rest of the client is still stuffed.
@samuraiturtle31 your issue was locking moira instead of lucio overwatch......
i don’t want to sit here & talk shit about overwatch but how can you nerf doom & yet he’s still the most op hero in overwatch. I don’t know man if it’s not the meta, it’s aimbotters, if it’s not that it’s people leaving your game from disconnect. Plz overwatch gods. PLZ!
@TryHardTwitch @TwitchSupport @Twitch LOL IM GLAD YOU GOT IT BROTHER! you one of the ones that actually ******* deserved it man , and i dont get salty about seeing my friend and fellow content creators get it , the system is just broken man as you know and its a shame ! p.s guys tryhard is a great #overwatch streamer
@KinneyLoggins Yeah and I'm just spitballing. I have my doubts that Overwatch 2 is even a thing. Blizzard loves games as a service, and if you look at Hearthstone or World Of Warcraft they seemingly would rather add to the existing game then sell a new one. Maybe they just update the base game
@FUCKTHElNDUSTRY @nsayoo if u login and go to cs it will say "banned by overwatch"
@heavnIyy no problem emma overwatch
@TLDoublelift Yea it's not cool cause it implies luck is what could of gotten you the win. I got to semi finals in alaskas overwatch comp and everyone "better luck next time" ... these people normally dont understand working mechanics of games.. (my "luck" was three steps with a 5 sec lag)
@SpooksR6 The Mian problem I see is todo a accurate replay system that would be needed for an accurate overwatch. I think this would be very hard in a dynamical game like r6s.
@Nayef_Khalid40 he literally stole pharaoh’s tweet, just rewording it a bit to make it seem new. I have no problem with taking a tweet or video and making it into an overwatch meme, that’s all good, but stealing tweets is not good
If you're having issues with overwatch for the switch it's probably because you got it for the switch
I LOVE #Overwatch but I cant deal with the level of toxicity in the game, even in casuals. I appreciate #Blizzard ‘s effort to fix it with endorsements and role queue, but honestly too many “kids” play it. So hence ive been taking longer breaks from OW and onto other games
@b2j135 Yeah, I'm sorry bro. I don't think I'll be joining you on Switch. I rebought it PS4 for cheap JUST to see if anything changed, and problems within the community and playerbase itself have only become worse. I wish you all the best. But I think I'm done with Overwatch. Period.
So i was planning on enjoying the night while playing Overwatch and livestreaming until one minor issue of my mic not working turned into my PC entering an endless restart loop with a corrupted restore point which then led to a factory reset so expect to see me tomorrow and ready
Fix lah ntar malem overwatch
@Gale_Adelade Theres no problem with that! Overwatch isnt fun anymore
Theoretically this fix means I can stream ANY PC game, but I don't have many. Overwatch might honestly be the one I care about the most, and I DO want to stream that more...
I think I just figured out how to stream Overwatch on PC! ...of course, now my problem is, I have Overwatch for Switch, and I need to stream THAT...
Haven't turned my PS4 on in over a week, hoping leaving it would help it recover. Nope, tried Overwatch, which I've never had any kinds of issue with with, and it instantly crashes. Even the splash screen when starting is totally corrupted...
the state of overwatch is so shit right now. the only fun i get is by smurfing in silver and gold now because high masters and gm is just either cheater, shit double shield, paris, or worse yet leavers every game. it's just not fun at all playing. fix the ******* game holy shit
@NinjaWulv @AskFareeha That's the problem that comes when your job is playing overwatch. Even for the average player that loves the game it's hard to quit the game, it took me a whole year to do so. In 2016-2017, it was my dream to become a professional overwatch player. Now I don't even play overwatch
@xFREEEDO you're 100% right, no one i know has an issue with legalization, the 70:30 split sounds about right. but as we know all that matters is who actually votes. And millenials are too busy playing Overwatch and puffing the magic dragon🐉 to vote lolol
Powercreep is a huge problem in Overwatch rn
Overwatch Hot Take: double shield isn’t the problem, it’s the fact that dps are absurdly overpowered to the point that teams feel like they *need* shields to keep themselves from getting one shot that’s the problem
//If you only play DPS in Overwatch, you are part of the problem.
@BlizzardCS I know, I’ve been playing overwatch for years. it literally won’t let me cycle through them to see regular loot boxes, it just does this weird glitch where it says/shows I have them, but doesn’t let me switch.
Also, I know I've been beating that drum a lot recently, but God does game streaming work well. I am continuously impressed. (For those who missed it I'm playing Overwatch via a ShadowPC. I'm on a Mac on fiber using wifi. Lag is not noticeable)
Casually browsing through twitter and just today along I saw 5+ semi-professional players quit pursuing OWL and two of them quitting Overwatch entirely. This is an issue and Blizzard doesn’t care.
@VultureX1998 Problem is that I already own Overwatch on a different console the Xbox One to be exact, I wanted to be on the Switch way in advance but couldn't wait that long until I heard the news about it back in September.
I wonder if Overwatch 2 is going to fix all the problems the first one had and if it even has a comp mode
fix overwatch mmr loss 2k17
So #Warmongers I potentially have a hybrid game system at my disposal and by rolling the clock back I avoid the massive stat creeps/overwatch wutuf issues of the current version. Granted in PA we now have everyone being brought into line with teh spaces but I digress.
@littlelisala @diana_west_ @MikeE5037 Check this out. The problem is whether or not Crowdstrike's Falcon Overwatch can detect exfiltration of emails. Either there was a Stand Down Order as Donna Brazile was told (See HACKS), or Falcon Overwatch does not work.
Overwatch switch is good so far only thing they need to fix is a couple of bugs but it feels so good on handheld and on the go. Was playing in bed all night trying to get to level 25 😂
@CthulhuDisciple I mean it's not the Overwatch Devs that are the issue, most of them are working class people. It's the corporate heads who make terrible decisions.
Yeah, 2-2-2 forced teamcomp definitely killed the game. Instead of dealing with the real problem, @PlayOverwatch allows #trolls, #onetricks and #smurfs. No point in playing this game anymore with a 1/10 wr ratio thanks to mentioned problems. Good bye #Overwatch, hello #Paladins
@EvilMojoMartini please please please fix ******* fps drops, this game runs like shit since the start of the year, even overwatch gives me better fps than this. You know people wont hold it much longer. Everyone is getting fps drops and will quit your game none wants to play30fps
