  • WhybrowEyebrow Whybrow (@WhybrowEyebrow) reported

    New character is dropping in overwatch 2 and I can’t play him for another few months can’t wait to see all the clips of him being broken though lmao

  • dennysaurusexe dennysaurus 🦕🐧 (@dennysaurusexe) reported

    @SumpfVirus (Right. Right. But you know what happened to my last stream, so I gotta check first if Overwatch 2 will also crash my stream)

  • buttermymatthew Buttermymatthew (@buttermymatthew) reported

    @CyberneticBliss @Jackithink @JakeSucky That’s how it’s different. Cod is never balanced around competitive, which means there will never be nerfs and fixes to things that help competitive play, unlike in overwatch where nerfs and changes come in to things that are broken. GAs need to exist.

    @TheCriticalDri2 Yes, out of Overwatch 2's problems, this is the one that needs addressing. It's not the unbalanced gameplay, the removal of the second tank, the way it tried to squeeze money out of players, etc. It's the fact they represent law enforcement and first responders.

  • Lewis64370145 Lewis (@Lewis64370145) reported

    Blizzard fix your game, I just had a DPS who had never played Sombra before and had 600 damage by the end, in a platinum game. Your matchmaking is making me and others I know wanna uninstall. @Blizzard_Ent #Overwatch

    Me: I wanna play Zelda today. 😎 Also Me: But you haven’t hit Lv200 on Fortnite yet and CH3 ends soon. 😬 Me Again: Once CH4 starts I definitely won’t play Zelda. 🤬 Also Me Again: And what about Fall Guys, Overwatch and Rocket League? 😵‍💫 [Variety streamer problems.]

  • OFC8_UK ollie (@OFC8_UK) reported

    @BlizzardCS i’ve been unable to play with my friends on overwatch since the last patch update 10 DAYS AGO. I cannot join my friends on Ps4 when playing on Ps5. Therefore I haven’t really played the game in 10 days. This is a new game, how is this still an issue.

  • BipolarVix GamerMom ♀️ Vix (@BipolarVix) reported

    @TexasDrax77 @Respawn Last night I realized that Arena has the same feel as Overwatch but rather than 5v5 it's 3v3 & you get to select your LO. If matchmaking wasn't so horrific & was more transparent & ranked wasn't solely based on some invisible system (hidden cuz they know it's broken) it'd be 🔥

  • Gregotto33 Gregory Butner (@Gregotto33) reported

    @TheCriticalDri2 Clearly the problem isn't Overwatch, it's @Kotaku .

  • CyberneticBliss ItMe (@CyberneticBliss) reported

    @JakeSucky You don't see pro Overwatch players GA'ing Sojourn and she's been broken since the game launched. They just adapt to it.

  • jalenjoneshere Jalen Jones (@jalenjoneshere) reported

    @BlizzardCS How about fixing the PlayStation invite glitch on Overwatch? Y’all should do something about that considering the fact that it’s been well over A WEEK!!!!!!!!!! Truthfully, are y’all even looking into a solution or just telling people that y’all are? It’s ridiculous

  • maddyafk Maddy (@maddyafk) reported

    Lagging out of Overwatch and still getting a penalty for it is insane

  • shiori_p0n ShioriPon Vtuber🩺 (@shiori_p0n) reported

    🎮 ShioriPon is LIVE! My right Oculus Quest 2 controller is broken so I can't play VRChat. D: I wanted to show off my 3D model too. So I'll just be playing Overwatch 2! #shioLIVE

  • mmykyro kyro (@mmykyro) reported

    me opening valo and getting an error twice after opening overwatch - dustin: the game said welcome back home cheater

  • DF1Mustang Gilbee (@DF1Mustang) reported

    Overwatch 2 comp is such a massive **** hole since they made the game free nobody gives a **** anymore. I've lost 3 comp games as DPS cause my tank left you'd think its lag but no one said they got hungry, one just said lol the other said nothing.

  • broyeanice 📙 women enthusiast 📙 (@broyeanice) reported

    @minorbone SERIOUSLY. SERIOUSLY i think they’re having a similar issue as overwatch where they don’t want to establish anything as “happening” in the present of the game, because that somehow invalidates the game itself. or maybe they’re scared fans will get mad their fanfic isn’t canon?

  • hampus_wennberg Thrilmang (@hampus_wennberg) reported

    I told them that I have claimed Overwatch drops without any problems so I know that the right account is connected and it should work. But no they still told me I have done something wrong and that they cant do anything.

  • WrathFuix Wrath (@WrathFuix) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent @BlizzardCS @battlenet Since the patch, I can no longer join my friends on Overwatch 2. I have to spectate their game, wait for someone to leave, then continue as team to squad up. Will this be fixed soon, or am I the only one having this problem?

  • Masked_Arsonist Freddy not Fazbear (@Masked_Arsonist) reported

    So i cannot save my highlights in #Overwatch2 It no longer gives me that option, anyone else struggling with this? Did they remove it?- And if they did why? I now have to use xbox capture to save my highlights, Am i the only one with this issue? #Overwatch

  • Spot64979218 Spot (@Spot64979218) reported

    @BlizzardCS still can’t hop in a group with my ps5 friend on overwatch I bet if this issue was happening on pc y’all would fix it by now y’all don’t treat console players equal to pc players

  • Pat_rick117 Patrick Guadalupe (@Pat_rick117) reported

    Bro ranked is broken in Overwatch. I’ve been in plat 3 the last 4 times

  • Sp3ctralFossa 🔞𝕾𝖕𝖊𝖈𝖙𝖗𝖆𝖑 𝕱𝖔𝖘𝖘𝖆 🗡️🪦 (@Sp3ctralFossa) reported

    @sneddy__ The only problem I have with overwatch right now is how expensive it is, 20-30$ for one skin that isn't even worthy of gold status is a joke and they would benefit from bringing back loot boxes.

  • Amoux__ Amoux (@Amoux__) reported

    Overwatch 2 as a live service game ******* sucks. The post battlepass rewards are garbage. The amount of weekly coins you get to buy cosmetics is beyond ludicrous. The amount of money they charge people for cosmetics is insane. There's no real content in the game. 1/

  • FoxyGamerGirl07 FoxyGamerGirl07🎄 (@FoxyGamerGirl07) reported

    im lagging so bad on overwatch rn

  • GhostFavaz 𝙁𝙖𝙫𝙖 🌟 (@GhostFavaz) reported

    The issues I’m seeing currently with Overwatch 2 is the DPS. Simply just not doing a good job, not getting kills, and then the supports who heal them and then for the DPS to continue to not do anything. While the tank has to solo 3 enemies alone. It’s a huge struggle.
