    orisa was already broken in overwatch 1 bro

  • OW_ICED ICED (@OW_ICED) reported

    bored of pointing out obvious problems with overwatch on the business / management side so I will no longer complain about obvious things like ranked needing to be in the beta. still love the game but at this point idrc if blizzard kills it they will do what the want to anyways.

  • NamedHaines haines 🍇 (not like the ketchup) (@NamedHaines) reported

    working in the service sector in 2022's deserves a chapter in the history books. i had a dozen uni boys show up and spend 3 hours discussing overwatch lobbies and this week my friend who works at the cinema's had hordes of them showing up to minions in full suits and ties

  • GabeTheDeadFish Gabriel Pescado (@GabeTheDeadFish) reported

    @kukuruyo I wish I had the Overwatch player base's problems.

  • dawnthehorizon sarah (@dawnthehorizon) reported

    okay so I just proved how broken Torb is on Overwatch. I never played him before, went 15-1 and got play of the game. Mans turret is scum

  • theorie_gg 《theorie》 (@theorie_gg) reported

    Overwatch 2 is almost unbearable for me to play, it's triggering some serious sensory issues that I didn't realize I had. There's too much noise to process through. Everything that was unique about Overwatch they removed. It's not fun. It's not unique. It's a bandaid.

  • theorie_gg 《theorie》 (@theorie_gg) reported

    Hot take: Overwatch 2 is what happens when the game devs focus more on giving a niche group of players what they want, rather than addressing the inherent issues that exist within Overwatch 1.

  • Birdman_0328 Obi-Wan Jabroni (@Birdman_0328) reported

    ps. My connection still isn’t great (upload speed problems on my ISP’s side) and I’ve had zero problems with Warzone and Overwatch, no lag, no stutter, no packet loss. It’d be hilarious if bungie banned me because they have dog **** servers and p2p connections LOL

  • variboy22 David Stephenson (@variboy22) reported

    @AskPlayStation Hey have you guys been able to solve the problem regarding the duplicate purchase of overwatch 2 watch point pack and not being able to play the beta

  • VyCade VyCade (@VyCade) reported

    My biggest problem with Overwatch 2 going to 5v5 is that if I want to play tank, I now have to wait just as long, if not longer, as I would have to wait if I wanted to play damage. I'm literally tweeting this as I enter my tenth minute of waiting for role queue.

  • MissVioletWolf 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 ⭐MissVioletWolf⭐ 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 (@MissVioletWolf) reported

    Time to refund @PlayOverwatch as much as i love Junker Queen she is so broken that she has NO OPPENENT to counter her, No tank can out her or have a chance to beat her. Beta 1 of Overwatch 2 was so balanced but now it's all over the place. I'll stick with Apex thanks

  • Mandycakes06 Amanda (@Mandycakes06) reported

    @BlizzardCS I am having an issue with my Overwatch and my Overwatch 2 beta where the game locks up my pc completely. I have redownloaded both but it keeps doing it, help please! Thanks! :D

  • meteotrix Azu. ! :3 (@meteotrix) reported

    thing is, I know how to fix my performance hehe, it's just science. climbed to top 20% in overwatch, then stopped climbing. I average at top 16% in wow classic without trying too hard hehe. I was top 5% in computer science school °w°

  • PlayerTakes ****** Player™ Takes (@PlayerTakes) reported

    @trooperxx1 @SophiaNarwitz Dear Player™, you're literally missing the forest for the trees. Overwatch 2 has been heavily criticised by the community and people into gaming for how little it seems to have really evolved, how long it took and the whole abuse scandal. But bench complaints they'll fix??

  • Ammytersau Ammy (@Ammytersau) reported

    @pcgamer overwatch 2 is the opposite of hostile architecture cause i have no trouble sleeping on it 😴

  • DerinAHalil Derin (@DerinAHalil) reported

    Really upsetting that I can't seem to update my PS4 version of Overwatch on my PS5. Just receiving an error each time I try. Any idea what might be causing this @AskPS_UK @BlizzardCSEU_EN ?

  • CherioHarajuku harajuku cherio (@CherioHarajuku) reported

    @RobIsHere94 Yeah I feel like it needs to be a mix bag, a huge issue with Overwatch 1 was there was too much healing and shields which made it less of a shooter and more of a shoot the shield and repeat . Now we have a lack of variety where I feel like we need less healing and more utility

  • helpkpopidols Helpkpopidols (@helpkpopidols) reported

    If you're having trouble believing this, they'd lie about the images they flash to my brain like "oh he was just playing overwatch tonight so he just imagined seeing it" the men, especially the white women, lie saying this needs to be done to me just to get away with torturing me

  • FlawSocial SocialDesignFlaw (@FlawSocial) reported

    Moira (Overwatch 2): Her kit plays like she's handing out Extra Strength Tylenol for every single problem. Incredibly flat, with zero choice beyond DPS'ing. She's got potential to do significantly more, but that kit 🤢

  • LuckyChappyFB Lucky Chappy  (@LuckyChappyFB) reported

    Overwatch 2 is sadly going to be a flop, one of the biggest issues being the shift from 2 tanks to 1, the game has now turned into a highest dps wins game. Sucks man, waiting for that “next big thing” and nothings coming!

  • alienh1414 alienh1414 (@alienh1414) reported

    @BlizzardCS I have had an issue on PS5 where I have purchased the Overwatch watchpoint pack granting immediate access yet I still haven't been able to play since the beta launched.

  • alienh1414 alienh1414 (@alienh1414) reported

    @BlizzardCS @ChartyBoy I have had an issue on PS5 where I have purchased the Overwatch watchpoint pack granting immediate access yet I still haven't been able to play since the beta launched.

  • YoshStudio Yosh Studio (@YoshStudio) reported

    Playing overwatch 1 because ow2 beta is broken haha

  • synthandlasers Argon Dreamcast Evangelion (@synthandlasers) reported

    My real issue with multiplayer FPS games is that I use respawn times as a break to grab a sip of my drink. But the problem is, I suck; and that's the story of how Overwatch disintegrated my liver

  • Gaynerdman w (@Gaynerdman) reported

    I hate the fact that these live service games (overwatch and apex) are promoted for a casual fan base but only listen to pro league players

  • Adi89736381 Adi (@Adi89736381) reported

    @owgwadael Man, someone at Blizzard really hates Soldier76... this line makes no sense. After the Blackwatch became public he took Genji under his wing in Overwatch. I mean, whatever issues they may have had, they probably talked it over before the new ID and new suit...

  • EskayOW eskay (@EskayOW) reported

    @melanji @Immortals in overwatch contenders teams waited 4+ hours for the enemy team to get their tech issues fixed it was just a matter of respect thats absolutely ridiculous from the admins part wtf.

  • ShutUpPabs Pablo (@ShutUpPabs) reported

    Overwatch 2 is good because it’s a lot like overwatch. Let’s not pretend the core gameplay of OW was a problem. OW fans were upset because they felt abandoned by the dev team. But to be clear the game has gone through some reworking and it’s better for it.

  • hun____ter hunter 🎗 (@hun____ter) reported

    internet's broken for a bit and it's honestly kinda freeing. no more overwatch. only writing and editing.

  • WearBunn Jack (@WearBunn) reported

    Why does the overwatch 2 beta crash my internet
