  • TwistdAddicted Isaiah Torres (@TwistdAddicted) reported

    @muselk I'm gonna be honest. I hate that Muselk is still playing fortnite. I would've gone back to him to watch again if he played literally anything else after TF2, but no. He went Overwatch, and then Fortnite. Two children's games back to back. ******' hell man, Fix yourself.

  • GeneralGuardian Kiryu Kazuma (@GeneralGuardian) reported

    Snipers are broken in Overwatch. hanzos arrows can curve and hit you ion a zero turn radius and widow can shoot through some walls ashe is just rediculous.

  • KaticMakenna what is even going on here... (@KaticMakenna) reported

    @OwDoopie sorry you're lonely, but overwatch is NOT a dating service, it's a game. look for love in the wrong places, and you will end up empty handed every time.

  • BotWithOpinions Video Game Opinion Bot (@BotWithOpinions) reported

    There need to be more Overwatch Standard Issue Pulse Rifles in video games

  • OSpartan123 OfficialSpartan123 (@OSpartan123) reported

    Shoutout to the time I slid into an overwatch girl dms and said “I heard ur a support player could u heal my broken heart” and she went haha... still hurts

  • baddreemurr Ariel 🏳️‍⚧️ (@baddreemurr) reported

    I should probably stream again at some point. It was a chill thing and people seemed to enjoy it. The trouble is that my popular games were Sekiro and Overwatch, so that's a no right there. I might enjoy doing some Doom Eternal, if people are up for that.

  • JakeHelios JakeHelios (@JakeHelios) reported

    Tomorrow's Overwatch League Stream is Cancelled. We have had a major Internet issue. I'm so deflated.

  • mothyttv Rose H. (@mothyttv) reported

    @holobasilisk @PlayApex @Respawn Nope this was suppose to be the fix patch and it's more broken the before for me...I had a good cry about it this morning and went to kill my soul on more overwatch.

  • ToKal64 Tomeus Kalle (@ToKal64) reported

    Nah, Crash is too tamed. Asking for an Overwatch character is a bigger poor taste.

  • Itz_Chop Daniel McIntyre (@Itz_Chop) reported

    @PlayOverwatch fix Doomfist please! It is the only it is abused so much in mid level overwatch by smurf accounts it makes me want to quit the game. Used to be Widow, but that was corrected. Please help us.

  • Red_Queen_Rebel ⚔️Rebellion⚔️ (@Red_Queen_Rebel) reported

    @Respawn @PlayApex Put the game in a complete maintenance mode like Overwatch and Destiny for one day. Fix everything you need to fix. For once, just listen to the actual community. This has been the worst event update ever since launch.

  • mossmozzy mozzy 🜨 (@mossmozzy) reported

    i’m cackling at how such a ****** older game such as overwatch manages to have less server connectivity issues than a newer polished game such as apex. sure, OW is dry as hell and sucks *** rn but at least i dont have to read “failed to connect” 200 times.

  • tweet_Oreoo Oreo (@tweet_Oreoo) reported

    @fr0stygirl @BlazinAzn7 @G2Dezignful I just stopped playing the game till they decide to finally fix it 💀 overwatch seems fun for now

  • DiamonInTheSoft DanIsThicc (@DiamonInTheSoft) reported

    @ReflashProd Double shield. A tank rebalance would fix so many issues. That's what Overwatch 2 claims to fix. Brigitte,immo and hack would be way more tolerable without shield stacking

  • chaseruni Chaseruni (@chaseruni) reported

    But then I think about what would be totally awesome world-shaking bookends (Crash, Kingdom Hearts), and then selfish picks that'd make me really happy (another Mega Man or Sonic rep, anything from Resident Evil, Overwatch)...

  • DigitalKronks A Digital Copy of Kronks New Groove (@DigitalKronks) reported

    @jasonschreier Crazy to read these comments and see people concerned about the state of the game when personally I’d rather just see Blizzard crash and burn with all the **** they’ve been pulling. **** Overwatch 2, hope it either flops or gets cancelled so Blizzard can face its consequences

  • LatelyCS LatelyZA (@LatelyCS) reported

    This update is making we want to switch to the love child of CS and Overwatch. Pls volvo, fix before the infection takes me.

  • NeroX320 Nelson🎮Life is Arise❎ (@NeroX320) reported

    @bandicootpage @NintendoAmerica Oh believe me same here! I love crash bandicoot. I just thinking from all the hate I been seeing the past month or 2. I've even been blocked for still play games like overwatch and preordering Diablo 2 🙄

  • McGenjiStark Yacky (@McGenjiStark) reported

    I saved 33k for the Halloween event. Overwatch better announce **** already or we're gonna have issues.

  • DanielJuel Yeetboi (@DanielJuel) reported

    @timthetatman I've played with both - I've played dva in overwatch with controller and miss 1 out 60 shots because aim-assist just stick onto them - aim-assist is just broken. it's fine to have for casual play but competitive it's gonna be a no

  • funkymonkey5001 me (@funkymonkey5001) reported

    Ez solution to fix overwatch 2 1. Don’t drop it.

  • cerebellumstuff San (@cerebellumstuff) reported

    I gave up on Blizzard before all the labor and harassment issues. StarCraft 2 is old. HoTS was under supported and died. Diablo was ruined then forgotten. Warcraft was abandoned then brought back like trash. WoW was driven into the dirt by laziness. Overwatch got stale.

  • BotWithOpinions Video Game Opinion Bot (@BotWithOpinions) reported

    fighting games about running away from Overwatch Standard Issue Pulse Rifles are often horrendous

  • Alecker7 Alecker EN (Vtuber/Vstreamer) (@Alecker7) reported

    @CouRageJD No they will stall that game into oblivion, because they know that if they don't solve the issues that Overwatch had nobody will stay.

  • Mattness8 Mattness (@Mattness8) reported

    @Carrier1011 @MarkPlays4602 @CouRageJD Why does that matter for the development of overwatch 2 as a whole? None of the overwatch team has been affected by that whole deal, nor are they part of the problem either. development has been going well, it is in its final stages of production and OWL 2022 will use OW2

  • morithebliss SmokeNScorch (@morithebliss) reported

    @SenorNopales @Trblmaka @Lemon_Here Not everyone can put the thousands of hours in required to be decent what you’re describing isn’t an Overwatch problem a competitive game problem in general. It’s fine though because if people don’t want to commit then it’s not for them it’s worth it tho

  • purisunah casca (@purisunah) reported

    I just want Overwatch to stay as it is with 6v6 and all it's current aspects the sequel seeks to fix, 2 can get canceled and I'll breathe a sigh of relief. The other side of this must be angry and exhausted with the delays. Just go on as is with new heroes and maps.

  • _Aimaki Aimaki (@_Aimaki) reported

    Overwatch isn't working out for me to well right now. Was streaming Apex for a bit but stream was choppy. Will be back in maybe an hour or so to resume it. Got some stuff to do and fix.

  • OwToshy Toshy (@OwToshy) reported

    overwatch should make the minimum requirement for comp up to lvl 100 instead of 25. would fix the smurf problem and no more new players ruining games cause they dunno whats going on.

  • huntthesnark bob (@huntthesnark) reported

    Well here's hoping Hunters find a way to stay in the tournament long enough for Shu to show MVP voters the error of their ways. #Overwatch
