Overwatch Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • InmanAlex Alex Inman (@InmanAlex) reported

    @Geek_Buddies Got a problem with Episode 19 on Overwatch. At 36:07, the audio drops out and comes back in at 38:02 with the main topic.

  • AmberLynneGirl AmberCutie 💙 (@AmberLynneGirl) reported

    @Eldiablo00MFC @PlayOverwatch @Blizzard_Ent I honestly would be FINE with them putting cosmetic stuff up for sale. I've never had an issue with that. But Quick Play is supposed to be the casual gamer's way of playing Overwatch and a place to enjoy trying whatever character you want to play. Being locked into a role sucks.


    I want to stream #DeadbyDaylight but the servers are all messed up. I keep getting disconnected from games and lobbies as well. I hope they fix this soon :/ in the mean time Ill do some #overwatch and grind the bastion skin and then try DBD again after.

  • ContestCharlie Char 💛🦌 @ Bobasaurs (@ContestCharlie) reported

    @SEchouafni reminds me how SCAD somehow blocked Voice Chat in overwatch... and it wasn't til i got my own place i realized that it was probably for the best 🙃 But damn that brutal these laws are meant the be broken rebel watch all the netflix

  • angelyntjf Angie (@angelyntjf) reported

    Just bought a new laptop. Waiting for it to arrive. This also means I can now play P.C. games and I’m very tempted to get Overwatch. This will be a problem

  • AVerySoftRat God is real and he is a golden retriver (@AVerySoftRat) reported

    @Gemini_Husko @Bryce_XXXL Overwatch specifically is such a neat concept and I want it to be good so bad. that's my issue. I know it's a general statement but it fits pretty well here.

  • McGelfling_ meg (@McGelfling_) reported

    @BlizzardCS says problem while trying to authenticate with Xbox live. All other games are working except for overwatch.

  • rExxonZ kat (@rExxonZ) reported

    why is my overwatch suddenly getting big lag spikes it's annoying 😭

  • krystira alex (@krystira) reported

    i know we all want blizzard to fix overwatch but unfortunately much of the playerbase is infected with dumb ***** disease and there’s no cure😔😔

  • Zacflame Zach (@Zacflame) reported

    overwatch: overloads the game with a bunch of bullshit shields overwatch people on twitter: ah yes doomfist is the problem

  • ConsolesSixSage Aiden (@ConsolesSixSage) reported

    @missavagee The problem is that with so many shields he's one of the only dps that can consistently do enough damage to be meaningful, if a character is genuinely op they then get abused in overwatch league like mercy was last season.

  • NatalyMMUA Nataly (@NatalyMMUA) reported

    @BlizzardCS Thanks I was experiencing “ Login error “ but my console didn’t auto update overwatch , so I had to update the patch manually “ . Works fine now 😅

  • insanepanicx • Panic • (@insanepanicx) reported

    @YourDripping @GearsofWar It has to be an xbox issue. Getting same thing on overwatch and black ops

  • witchjail evan @ 🦄 Shaun Gilmore Respect Zone🦄 (@witchjail) reported

    i’ve been pretty down on overwatch lately bc instead of fixing their enormous toxicity problem or releasing new lore they decided to port the game to the switch but let me say i played last night and moira is still so ******* hot

  • 420hobi j-hope nutella ☆★ (@420hobi) reported

    noooo overwatch is so ****** laggy n idk how 2 #fix#

  • DavidVeh David Viramontes (@DavidVeh) reported

    @BlizzardCS Having issues staying connected to team chat on overwatch for xboxone. I keep getting kicked and I’ve tried everything on the forums to try and fix it.

  • Linlia7 toelasagne (@Linlia7) reported

    @BlizzardCS I’m trying to login into overwatch (Xbox) and it says that there was an error logging in. This also happened to my friend at the same time

  • TheDanaAddams 🦋 Dana Addams 🦋 (@TheDanaAddams) reported

    @Pancake_Time Borderlands has the same problem as Overwatch - all these great, interesting characters, but they're stuck in a shooter.

  • NapsPartTime impeach the oompa loompa (@NapsPartTime) reported

    Nothing a little Overwatch can’t fix

  • Firetracc chi's #1 fan (@Firetracc) reported

    overwatch seriously have to fix their queue times its TERRIBLE

  • Ian___Moone Anomaly (@Ian___Moone) reported

    Something's wrong with this laptop, framerate dropping like shit for no ******* reason in the middle of a game, be it dotka or overwatch, before this there was no problem, must be the recent windows 10 updates ******* it up

  • WilliamHimmelb1 Disgusting Ron Howard (@WilliamHimmelb1) reported

    Honestly how had Blizzard not patched the beam heroes yet they’re so broken and it’s making the game unfun #Overwatch

  • FarNorthViking Erik Golia (@FarNorthViking) reported

    @kenkukun @Bungie Also the problem is that the server tickrate it's extremely low, if you think of CS GO, it has a 100hz server tickrate, Overwatch has 60hz, Destiny has 15, and the games runs at 30fps, that means the server and the game doesn't refresh at the same time, causing this issue.

  • iainlobb Iain Lobb (@iainlobb) reported

    OMG I've just realised my mouse is broken and sometimes doesn't register clicks! Maybe this is why I've been losing at Overwatch the last 2 years!

  • FemaleLeads Joni Aficionado🧛‍♀️ (@FemaleLeads) reported

    @Lilah217 Practice mentally controlling and loosening your grip on your controller. I had that same problem, worst even when I played Overwatch and Fighting games. It helps alot, ever since I've never had that problem. Grips aren't the solution, they just help with aim.

  • Alonso287 Alonso (@Alonso287) reported

    Suspended and deranked for not even getting in a game Fuckyou overwatch my computer disconnect before even getting into a match

  • ruby_ebook faker ruby (@ruby_ebook) reported

  • lilmixedjade JADE (@lilmixedjade) reported

  • KawaiiSenpaiRay Raymond M. Kasper (@KawaiiSenpaiRay) reported

    @Ask_Spectrum Was in the middle of a Overwatch game and your service decided to take a crash and cost me a win. Fix your issues asap. NOW!!!

  • TyygerStyle Tyyger.Style (@TyygerStyle) reported

    @BlizzardCS I’m still having issues with connectivity on #PS4 with #Overwatch. Please message me with help! #blizzard

  • missavagee Allana (@missavagee) reported

    im about to delete the game im getting so tilted bc of doomfists and no one kills them i was on baptise i killed him on like 4 times and he still kills me we somehow won a game where i had 17 deaths 75% to a doomfist this is how broken overwatch is rn

  • Zaf_OW Zaffy-Poo 🍙 (@Zaf_OW) reported

    @ofwz The problem right now with overwatch, from what I've heard, is that this meta sucks. A lot of people aren't playing as much as they used to, which was already happening. After the beta for role queue, they left the mmr the way it was, so we had diamonds in GM. Only made it worse.

  • Hanners_K Hannah Keller (@Hanners_K) reported

    @sydwizz I’m gonna cry if they don’t fix it before October 😭 I NEED spooky overwatch season 😭

  • Timezxne_ Time (@Timezxne_) reported

    @Xeno_Parker @ConsoleOWNews Problem is... Console overwatch has only a certain amount of players atm

  • EElsenbroek2021 Eddy Elsenbroek (@EElsenbroek2021) reported

    @heisenberdy @qtQotez @SamMY49576932 @ExoticstrikeYt @UbisoftSupport @Rainbow6Game Alright fair enough. I didn’t think of that. But this has been a problem for other games (overwatch) and they fixed it

  • BunkerHillBust omar (@BunkerHillBust) reported

    This overwatch news is not surprising at all, if youve ever went to the matches live you could tell what there was a problem

  • FlynnWurm Katherine (@FlynnWurm) reported

    Proposed change to Orisa in #Overwatch If her barrier has taken damage but wasn’t broken, she can deploy it again, but it stays damaged. This has no cooldown. If her barrier is broken, it triggers a short cooldown before she can deploy it again at full health.

  • InvictusFrags Invictus (@InvictusFrags) reported

    Jake: Trust me Jeff is going to fix overwatch and make it playable Spree: I'm just here so I don't get fined

  • JustKryptic Justin Kryptic (@JustKryptic) reported

    @Dysmo @ashtonisVULCAN Overwatch has the same type of name system and even then it hasnt been an issue at all. Would be sick to see verifed people tho

  • Vuswo Jacob Tenney (@Vuswo) reported

    @wahkka @SirSaladOf @Shahbaz28149872 @Rainbow6Game Blizzard has had people arrested for it for Ddossing in Overwatch, now they dont have a ddoss issue lmao

  • Darxlings (@Darxlings) reported

    They need to fix overwatch. Top 500 should be grandmaster not 3600 or even 3000 on combined. I enjoy the grind of climbing accs from masters to gm to secure that t500 spot, I don't wanna finish placements on a 35 account and already be in range of t500 just only needing 25 games

  • tennant_louis Louis Tennant (@tennant_louis) reported

    @BryanSalter @sonisis_ The issue is, nobody sees it ass adult content unless it's the really crude stuff I see you listed castlevania and overwatch as examples of good adult oriented animated things, but I swear to God nobody else sees them that way, and it sucks that to be "adult" you need to be gross

  • OWLCommenter OWLCommenter (@OWLCommenter) reported

    A lot of people complaining about doomfist right now but I actually think sym is the biggest problem in comp right now. All of the brig takes no skill complainers are silent when it’s a DPS character... #overwatch

  • ruby_ebook faker ruby (@ruby_ebook) reported

    fix overwatch mmr loss 2k17

  • CriptanOG CriptanOG (@CriptanOG) reported

    I miss Overwatch... been close to 2 weeks since I played. Maybe I should fix that this week...

  • JellyOW_ Jelly (@JellyOW_) reported

    i am sorry to the overwatch community for playing this shit broken hero, moira. i have climbed over 500 sr in a couple days just by throwing healing orbs.

  • cjohnstonau Chris Johnston (@cjohnstonau) reported

    @BlizzardCS fix your ******* shit overwatch servers

  • isaidicanshout Will Geddes (@isaidicanshout) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent @PlayOverwatch I have the same skins on fortnite whether I login with a pc, PS4, or even on my phone... yet on overwatch i’m starting from square one on pc... that’s insane to me.

  • LadyShardust LadyShardust ☕️ (@LadyShardust) reported

    Good Morning. Trying to fix my sleep schedule so everything's wonky right now. Gonna try streaming Overwatch this afternoon. Thank you so much for your patience. 🙏

  • joomla69 joomla (@joomla69) reported

    It's surprising to me that people think I hate OW cause i post edgy tweets satirically criticizing some aspects of overwatch with a heavy dose of hyperbole. If I hated the game, I wouldn't have 3-4 thousand hours played. but let's not lie to ourselves, game does have some issues

  • SuzakuR6 jacob (@SuzakuR6) reported

    As far as DDoSing goes idk what to say because I'm not educated on the subject, all I know is that other major games do not have this problem as much as we have right now, I watch countless hours of overwatch, csgo, Fortnite and I don't think I've ever seen it happen, as opposed

  • mercyspeach Mercy🎃 [TG] (@mercyspeach) reported

    Hey overwatch can we maybe fix 10 minute queue times thanks

  • RogueWunWun RogueWunWun (@RogueWunWun) reported

    @Lady_Arsenic_ Havent played the beta but I've played a ton of other online shooters, Overwatch, Blops4, Division, Battlefront 1/2 etc and no issues. Even no issue on Hardline. Just 1 and 5. And even on 1 it hasn't been til this past month or so. 5 has always been ****** for me hit reg-wise

  • mykagggggg Myka (@mykagggggg) reported

    The problem is that I am also kind of Over overwatch by now. Ironic,

  • MrDik16 Mr.Dik (@MrDik16) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent I was just kicked from a match in Overwatch because of a bug that wouldn't allow my mouse or keyboard to be used. I literally could not select a character. I clawed my way to the rank I'm at and I want my SR back. Servers have been buggy and unstable lately. FIX!

  • FACIALHAIRBROS Eddie Brock's Beard. (@FACIALHAIRBROS) reported

    Shes exactly the problem with overwatch. When the tanks and dps are so bad the healer has to kill but you get shitted on for doing anything other than healing.

  • TyygerStyle Tyyger.Style (@TyygerStyle) reported

    Haven’t been able to play #Overwatch for 4 days due to connectivity issues.

  • Cruxieee Tyler (@Cruxieee) reported

    @BlizzardCS Overwatch application is "Launching" but never appears on any monitors. I was just playing a couple hours ago with no issues.

  • mordhona daniel « ffxiv & fe3h » (@mordhona) reported

    if you were ever told that being on the computer tempts people to do bad things as a child, they were right here are some examples: - overwatch players - customer service chat - the notification that tells you your roomie is streaming netflix and you can override their broadcast
