    How do you know the Overwatch is broken? Because smurfs are running rampant, bypassing matchmaking. Want to reset your exp lvl so the game doesn't know what your skill level is? Buy a new account and the game will think you are new and match you with new players. @PlayOverwatch

    @NyykaVevo @cronieees @IGN I agree. I dont see Xboz buying this studios and making all the games exclusive. Skyrim, COD, Overwatch, Diablo. I dont see any of these games being exclusives ever. Deathloop, Spyro, Dishonored, Crash Bandicoot on the other hand are a different story.

  • BlondiiSwag Blondii (@BlondiiSwag) reported

    yo @CORSAIR your ICUE program gives driver errors to overwatch, wanna talk about it? Took me a few days to figure out crashes, but its all youuuuuu

  • Rumotu Gotta go fat (@Rumotu) reported

    @AutoDraws Imagine all the FF 7R sales spike on pc right now. If overwatch taught me something, that's it. And to think that people was not liking the pc price for the game. Problem solved.

  • aqshamuhammad muhammad aqsha (@aqshamuhammad) reported

    @rechzyfirmnsyah fix overwatch

  • SatayPollo_EXE Dolores Madrigal superfan (@SatayPollo_EXE) reported

    Anyway **** take and I'm sure there's other series that have the same problem but I really only hear this said about overwatch (RWBY apparently???? ) I hate overwatch btw

  • OrigiGreatness OddAIs #HokagoPlushClub🐰 (@OrigiGreatness) reported

    @Dal_ayy @shadow_griever @theDualSense Cod, wow, overwatch, diablo, crash, spyro, etc

  • AsheMercymaker Amélie Lacroix (Multi muse) (@AsheMercymaker) reported

    @WhorishTracer “Chérie I haven’t had a reason to kill you for nearly three years. In fact the only reason I’ve not tried to form any sort of alliance with my organization and Overwatch is due to those broken relationships and trust issues.. Maybe you’ll tell them of my friendly hello?”

  • juan_kruh Juan Kruh (@juan_kruh) reported

    @Darccage Ips that Xbox stole from Playstation Users -Elder Scrolls -Fallout -Doom -Wolfenstein -Overwatch -Call of Duty -Tony Hawk -Crash -Spyro -Diablo -Starcraft -Warcraft Ips that Sony stole from Xbox Users -Sunset Overdrive

  • BFCommPolls BF:2042 Community Polls (@BFCommPolls) reported

    Sorry for redoing the tweet, had an issue with poll attaching to it. As a reference, overwatch typically is patched every two, sometimes 3 weeks.

  • Shokio_YT TLOC | Shokio (@Shokio_YT) reported

    With their acquisitions, Microsoft could actually do a crossover fighter now that wouldn't have a completely laughable roster. Between Banjo, Halo, Gears, Spyro, Crash, Overwatch, WoW, Starcraft, and Bethesda's IP's, they could have a pretty solid roster.

  • catboy_rei Catboy Rei ( ENDWALKER SPOILERS ⚠️ ) ⚧ ♡ Ⓐ 🔞 (@catboy_rei) reported

    overwatch community now being split apart by streamers having hot takes about nft stuff guess i can check that one off my 2022 bingo, if you are for nfts and or just say "OH i DonT hAve A poSiTion oN the TopIc" you are the problem please see yourself out /s

  • PolarIntersect Bailey 💜 (@PolarIntersect) reported

    @cednati0n If you think it's an issue in Destiny, try playing Overwatch. I literally got banned from Overwatch because a bunch of people started reporting me for being trans as "abusive chat".

  • aerinie rin 🏳️‍⚧️ (@aerinie) reported

    even taking the entire body of hadm that nfts cause to both the art community at large and the environment AND how crypto capitalism poses a massive threat to poor people, do you not think overwatch "fans" will have a problem with the gpu bubble driving consumers out the market

  • SandyK1LL SΛNDY (@SandyK1LL) reported

    massive lag spikes in Overwatch tonight

  • Josh2747919 Josh (@Josh2747919) reported

    it takes a special kind of incompetence to actively **** up a live service game that started that well but that team managed it so not really sure I would be proud of calling myself "ex-Overwatch"

  • BaeroRemedy Remedy (@BaeroRemedy) reported

    @FRANA_OW Overwatch is bad and so are NFTs. There. Problem solved.

  • TheSchutter Ernie Schutt (@TheSchutter) reported

    @JeremyPenter It would've been crazy if Nintendo could've done it imagine Crash and Spyro as Nintendo characters and overwatch 2 being a huge switch exclusive

  • zackarya9272 Zakaria Hamidi | زكرياء حميدي 🇩🇿 (@zackarya9272) reported

    @hard8_times Sekiro - crash and spyro triloy - overwatch from Activision blizzard Doom / Wolfenstein / the evil within 2 from Bethesda


    @RogueCreed @Invader13285292 @BrokenGamezHDR_ Overwatch is already on PS, will continue to be Supported just like Elderscrolls online and Warzone will, Diablo has already being announce for PS4, that won't change, none of the Studio's are working on Crash or Tony Hawk, and weren't getting new versions because of COD.

  • CressOfLight David Dunlop (@CressOfLight) reported

    @TheRealGoomi @Canadianguyehh Exactly how i feel lol, Crash & Spyro being Xbox exclusives was the only thing that bumped me, it didn't even bother me they have COD, Overwatch & others.

  • catpawhss adelaide (unavailable) (@catpawhss) reported

    was having trouble joining voice chat for overwatch and gf left the room then came back going “BLGBLGBLGLBLGB” and didn’t realize i had figured it out when she was gone LMAO 😭

  • BPAxrom BP🕹Axrom ||| @HaloInfinite @ItTakesTwo (@BPAxrom) reported

    @MethodicalMemes Honestly, the only Activision games i would buy are Tony Hawk and maybe Crash cuz im not a fan. Overwatch 2 maybe but that's on the PC list.

  • JoeBoyrmd Joeb (@JoeBoyrmd) reported

    @AndreaPichinini I'm honestly sick of this **** from these butthurt ps fanboys, this will make an unbelievable difference to the devs working there, it will mean that games like crash, spyro, overwatch, diabo and other ip's will finally get made, but yea let's feel sorry for these *******

  • Webhead_91 Webhead (@Webhead_91) reported

    @D27ShGu @nib95_ @JustAnLED Imagine if Sony for example bought Activision and made the following franchises exclusive. COD Spyro Crash Overwatch Diablo Tony Hawk People would lose their mind and call Sony anti-consumer because it would be. Those are long standing multi-platform franchises. It's wrong.

  • BiggHungryPhill Phill Moxley (@BiggHungryPhill) reported

    If you ever thought that PC overwatch has a smurfing problem, I'm here to remind you that PS4 accounts cost exactly one email address.

  • Aethel12_ Connor Haynes (@Aethel12_) reported

    @Scott_YNWA @TeaGuvnor I guess the fix for this would be to make some way for previous patches to be playable in custom lobbies, so that pro matches can continue to play on the old patch while the new patch is released for the public. Believe that's how it's done for overwatch.

  • OphoisSon karim nawar (@OphoisSon) reported

    @Qwik @Asmongold @WatcherDev 3rd another line of commutation to answer for overwatch ,starcraft ,warcraft reforged (we still didn't get what we payed for heroes of the storm . all these games have a lot of streamers and content creators have been addressing issues and problems with no single answer .

  • RoiDesVoleurs Legion (@RoiDesVoleurs) reported

    @Radgamer420 @ReactsRenegade @ModernWarzone So they can do more with other games from Activision/Blizzard? It isn't all COD. Now they can actually fix Overwatch, they can do stuff with Starcraft, they can make a new Crash, and, yeah, they can make COD better. But they don't have any reason to make COD exclusive.

  • eldrexe01 eldrexe? (@eldrexe01) reported

    @aizyesque I'd rather they not add something that ruins the game/meta like blizzard did with overwatch and refuse to fix it
