Overwatch Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • TheWubbers ElliotTheFox (@TheWubbers) reported

    Why is it that there are no left handed characters in Overwatch? Let's fix that @PlayOverwatch

  • merylls4 merylls (@merylls4) reported

    @OWAnonymous_ doomfist would have design problems if Overwatch had a clear vision for what it actually wanted to be.

  • ZawaTheBrave BBAD | Zawa The Brave (@ZawaTheBrave) reported

    See ya over at @PlayOverwatch until this "can't ever connect" nonsense is fixed. I have ZERO issues connecting to their servers, zero dropped matches, no big lag. I don't even like Overwatch anymore but ****, at least I can play it. Please sort the DCs/NCs

  • ZawaTheBrave BBAD | Zawa The Brave (@ZawaTheBrave) reported

    Also I know all my bullshit inability to connect to matches **** is an Apex problem because I've yet to have one Overwatch this game I couldn't play. Spots of lag maybe. But nothing unplayable. I wish Apex had a little bit more Blizzard level polish on it.

  • luigi_3k Luigi_3k (@luigi_3k) reported

    @Sp1ritB0x i have only seen it once outside of 3.5k+ and it was low diamond. that is insane ppl ddos and are that awful at overwatch

  • Codex_Jinora CodexJinora / BLM / (@Codex_Jinora) reported

    @Lillohen @OWAnonymous_ ....Can we also note that Overwatch was based off TF2 and mercy is almost a CARBON COPY of TF2's MEDIC??? And nobody has a problem with medic, tyvm! (Guess what, he gets rez too in MvM)

  • Dutchmassive Dutchyyy (@Dutchmassive) reported

    @slump_gawd I thought this was in reference to my overwatch post haha. I have the og xbox. Not even the Xbox s. So I did start new genesis. But ima wait til braver/bouncer arrive and a few patches come for all the server issues. Cus I was just freezing mid air haha

  • Laftoro Laf (@Laftoro) reported

    please drop overwatch character + skin requests I have a broken toe and no will to do anything but cry, pwease D,:

  • alpha_sheek Alpha Sheek (@alpha_sheek) reported

    Thinking about the time I finally made it to Plat in Overwatch and my ex-husband texted me saying "congrats on Plat, maybe you should have put that much effort into our marriage." Trust me when I say, that wasn't the problem in the relationship lol.

  • FireWavePhantom FireWavePhantom (@FireWavePhantom) reported

    @bondeyeboiz I can just imagine Custard teaching Bazza how to play Siege and fix that Overwatch aim LMAO

  • MichelleOkyo Yennefer of Vengerberg (@MichelleOkyo) reported

    wtf is going on with duplicates in overwatch? three chests in a row of all dupes? i don’t even have everything in the game not even close ?? FIX THIS AGAIN PLS

  • sleepyboiMoosh 𝑺𝒍𝒆𝒆𝒑𝒚𝒃𝒐𝒊 𝑴𝒐𝒐𝒔𝒉🌙 (@sleepyboiMoosh) reported

    damn lol I try booting up overwatch for the first time in MONTHS and this **** not working

  • Veilynne Veilynne (@Veilynne) reported

    Activision has no idea how live service games work. All you have to do is look at the state of Overwatch and the very existence of Overwatch 2 for proof.

  • riskyendless riskyendless (@riskyendless) reported

    @benmcguc @itsashadowops @FortniteStatus competitive should keep new things, but make them fair. See: every new overwatch hero was at one point broken, now nobody is, and the meta changes every few months

  • DerpyBay DerpyBay (@DerpyBay) reported

    @NoodlesWChicken I wouldn't say its because its Britain. I mean kings row in overwatch is fantastic and they based that of london. I'd say it has to do more with level design overall that is the issue.

  • Wilberstien Wilberstien (@Wilberstien) reported

    So I really like Larcenauts so far! It absolutely has some problems on launch that need to be addressed but I've been wanting a Hero shooter in VR for years now and the whole time I was playing I was having flashbacks to my time spent in Overwatch. That's a really good sign.

  • Nopperabouko 【Kiko】 (@Nopperabouko) reported

    So, day what feels like 3489573498753489 of trying to get Overwatch to work without issue. I'm going to throw my PC out a window.

  • ainaraV7 victor lésbico (@ainaraV7) reported

    i actually dont think the biggest issue with the voice chat would be the separate languages but maybe thats because i used to play overwatch so im used to people yelling at me in french

  • swoocegenius Morgan (@swoocegenius) reported

    The real problem being that the only thing I want to play is Overwatch

  • slackerson Slackerson (@slackerson) reported

    @AlphaOmegaSin I picked up Super Metroid from Walmart on launch day for 75$ in 1994. We've had it pretty good on game prices for the most part. Live service games should be free or have a low cost of entry though (The Division, Ghost Recon, BLOPS IV, Overwatch, etc...)

  • ARomanCauti Alonso Roman (@ARomanCauti) reported

    @CSGO REMOVE OVERWATCH BANS, GOT BANNED WITHOUT HACKING 2 YEARS AGO. The existence of OW proves that VAC doesn't work unless you are full charged, and the arbitrary criteria of OW investigators (which can fail in their verdict), just hides the real problem of actual cheaters.

  • Harley43033 Rooster_Senpai (aka Harley_Gibson) (@Harley43033) reported

    Let's say you're playing overwatch and you consistently hit 3200. You're good enough to do that without much issue. So you make 10 more accounts and level them to 3200 where you proved you can be consistently already. That's all yznsa is. Amazing, but wasting time with alts

  • neluGLHF OhBearNelu.ツ (@neluGLHF) reported

    @anomalyxd csgo wants us to use overwatch and solve our own problems in cheater like wtf what if they give drops in every overwatch case so everyone will be inspired to do that for them

  • tittytwistr rhi (@tittytwistr) reported

    @PlayOverwatch fix ur ******* matchmaking for comp, if its this bad in overwatch 2 then yikes.

  • StephanieGiesb1 Stephanie Giesbrecht (@StephanieGiesb1) reported

    @PlayingOnBacon @DeadByBHVR Oh wow DBD really need to sort out their priorities and actually fix their game because like an example if there’s a bug/glitch reported in overwatch the blizzard staff is quick to fix it.

  • S0UL0FCINDER chihiro (@S0UL0FCINDER) reported

    im so tempted to mute everything related to overwatch i like the game and im gonna play two but i have not seen anything about it that isnt complaining over non issues

  • mindofshinzu shinzu (@mindofshinzu) reported

    @McNeilColin He looks a lot like project yi or maybe some of the other project skins. I feel like them pumping out more champs instead of focusing on other aspects on the game is probably gonna be a problem in the long run. Hope it doesnt see the same fate as overwatch.

  • Anderhan14 Anderhan (@Anderhan14) reported

    @sabu__x @wolfenanos @DomTheBombYT I also play Overwatch and Sims 4 and also don't like the direction they're going towards. I stay hoping it will get better. LIS 1 was good until ep 2/3. I keep hoping in a new release they will fix things but if they eventually don't I will just not come back to the games again

  • kingzlucky03 Lucky (@kingzlucky03) reported

    @launders havent had a cheater in a while but all of my mates have been doing at least 1 overwatch case before we q in a 5 stack in supreme. premier mm is broken in solo q i was matched with 4 mg1 s in my team (EU btw)
