    @saveodaatplease I mean, if the idea is "you could just take her head and stick it on the others bodies interchangeably," then no, that's incorrect. Overwatch, Sword Art Online, they actually do have that problem. Yes I get what you mean tho. 1/

  • LiIanei ⊹.˚ ฅ♡ฅ ‧₊ 🍥 (@LiIanei) reported

    @Sprinkled i’m on overwatch at the moment but how long are you going to be on? maybe i’ll hop on before bed or tomorrow since i’m not working ♡

  • Skybuster83 Red Pill (@Skybuster83) reported

    @R3volutionDaddy @defendpdx It's called overwatch. Happy to be of service

  • aSkiBum21 L (@aSkiBum21) reported

    @PlayOverwatch your ranking system is seriously hot garbage... Hopefully you fix this by overwatch 2

  • thicks1995 WindScar (@thicks1995) reported

    @DravienDrako Overwatch and Mortal Kombat 11 and Killer Instinct I also have modern warfare but the problem is updating with no internet

  • Bhixu_ Bhixu (@Bhixu_) reported

    @LoganIsntHere mental issues w/Overwatch 2.0

  • DanaRook_YT DanaRook (@DanaRook_YT) reported

    @GotchaR6 overwatch has had a growth in viewership, siege has major issues that are not being solved from the servers being complete dogshit to the worst meta the game has ever had to the most cheaters its nearly unplayable

  • vlynx23723 a (@vlynx23723) reported

    @ForHonorGame There’s a glitch where if you get the treat bringer outfit, the yellow indicator that shows you have new items for the character doesn’t go away. You need to add a button that removes the yellow indicator like overwatch does

  • Kianfox Kian on the internet (@Kianfox) reported

    @Bizarre_Jelly I think its mostly just valorant and overwatch that still has these issues. Valorant cause its filled with hyper-competitive zoomers, and overwatch cause its filled with human scum.

  • ryanrossokay Ryan (@ryanrossokay) reported

    @RogueCompany I never have problems like this, with the same exact connection, with other online shooters like Overwatch, and it makes me pick up rogue company less and less. Which is a bummer, because I feel like it’s a great game that’s becoming increasingly unplayable

  • sunnygirlxx117 sunnygirl~ (@sunnygirlxx117) reported

    @PlayOverwatch Fix this smurf problem.. it makes overwatch completely broken. No wonder you lose people.

  • Aildaris 💀 Skeledaris 💀 (@Aildaris) reported

    I'm so sorry for the short stream, so many tech issues. So I'm gonna spend the rest of the day resetting my scenes and switching to standard OBS. We sent the love to @brofishTV who's cosplaying as sombra and playing overwatch See you tomorrow

  • KaiserBeamz Dead Mall Marsupial (@KaiserBeamz) reported

    @TheZeroVirus I miss 2016 Overwatch where it felt like nearly every character could be broken if you knew how to use them right

  • jessejames142 Jessyleejames (@jessejames142) reported

    Sorry everyone I overslept. I must have really needed the sleep. Give me a chance to get woken up and I think I'll stream a little bit of OverWatch instead of broken porcelain. Sadly the camera in broken porcelain made me really sick and I'm not quite ready to jump back in

  • H0NEY_BOi LRRR, Ruler of Omicron Persei 8 (@H0NEY_BOi) reported

    OW Players: Brig is broken and always has been, permanently nerf her! Blizzard: Buff her to 175 hp, oh and make Mcree thicc #Overwatch

  • Keoni2440 🦦 |Keoni| 🦦 (@Keoni2440) reported

    ******* be like OVERWATCH IS MADE BY A MAD COMPANY DONT SUPPORT THEM!!! then goes and plays crash 4

  • TreckenS Trecken Shill (@TreckenS) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent I finished my Overwatch placements but my rank is not showing up under my boarder. Is this a glitch?

  • Wim_Zttv Wim_Zttv (@Wim_Zttv) reported

    So lemme fix random matchmaking in squad games real fast... you choose to queue with or without a mic and implement the #Overwatch endorsement system on top to balance...

  • Terra431101 Terra4311 (@Terra431101) reported

    @G2Pengu @tuxbird I feel like sieges problem right now is that you cant really have fun with it without thinking. Csgo. Death match. Overwatch. Casual. Siege just isnt a casual friendly game. I would say that a fix would be to make golden gun and death match regular modes. Sorry if its off topic

  • YozzoyYGO Yozzoy (@YozzoyYGO) reported

    @StarlightAurora I think the bigger issue is people are still trying to play overwatch as if it had a competent dev team and thats just an easy way to have a bad time. Or play overwatch in general, thats also a bad time.

  • furrygahbidge Franken Fran's #1 Franken Stan (@furrygahbidge) reported

    DBD really has the same problem Overwatch has where they just keep releasing admittedly neat skins and cosmetics but not like...fixing the problems with the game itself.

  • MissScarletTana Miss Scarlet Tanager (@MissScarletTana) reported

    I don't want to jinx it, but I *may* be able to stream Overwatch without the lag now. I've been messing with OBS settings while sick, and realized that OBS was still set up for my OLD GPU, not the new one.

  • Not_Aloiki Rev (@Not_Aloiki) reported

    @MajinBanzai1 Its more of just an overwatch/competitive team game problem. It why i only play non competitive games now bc people dont know how to act.

  • Goldhound7 Goldhound (@Goldhound7) reported

    @Amazon10896131 @Axreiii Yea and the game against us I’m assuming u went to work right after map 2, quit ow on ur Xbox, then restarted it without signing in ur account, worked for an hour, got home exactly 1 minute after the game ended, hit the sign in button, and kept playing overwatch?

  • Mewsitive Mew @ ACNH (@Mewsitive) reported

    @Sinister_rblx Trust me when I say I'll be disaspointed. When I say that, I meant as I won't be happy but at least some people will be. The problem with fortnite/overwatch rep in general though is that there's a large amount of people who just hates both franchises(even more than FE swordmen).

  • Ninja305011 Ninja3050 (@Ninja305011) reported

    @OWAnonymous_ The problem is a map with more natural cover is better for reaper Taller building so widow can’t jump shot as much? Pharah. Tighter chokes. Junk rat The beauty of overwatch is that almost every map has its own meta currently but one hero being to dominate on all of them has

  • walmarteyedrops shizaru (@walmarteyedrops) reported

    @TheRapAgenda i think the issue comes when people somehow think that the shittiness of an artist’s fanbase somehow lessens the quality of their music. it’s the same way everyone started calling overwatch a bad game because the community is full of degenerates

  • Rabbitlnbound RabbitInbound (@Rabbitlnbound) reported

    Are overwatch QUES broken rn or something?

  • CaptainDashMatt Matthew Dunphy (@CaptainDashMatt) reported

    @PlagueOfGripes That implies that they survive the shadowlands launch to make it to Overwatch 2. Considering that we're still unsure the month they delayed the game is enough time to fix two out of three of the expansions big features. more likely than you think
