    So, Blizzard, When you're done shoving the blessed ****** of activition up your asses, fix the game, fix what overwatch 2 is adding because it ******* isn't alot "oh wow, pve mode with new abilties and such" that doesn't make a game

  • anyssa_field anyssa field (@anyssa_field) reported

    @ChopsticksEnby when people complain enough and enough big streamers “quit overwatch” they have to fix it

  • NewtonSmithPost NewtonSmith (@NewtonSmithPost) reported

    I hope overwatch 2 fixes some problems with the original, having new heroes and maps is cook and all, but I want heroes to get buffs and nerfs they need, and a bastion rework would he nice too, I doubt we'll see much for any of that soon but I can dream.

  • itsArlowe Ivy (@itsArlowe) reported

    overwatch has actually broken me and i don't care if i lose anymore

  • Moodyy_Mara mara^ (@Moodyy_Mara) reported

    the problem with overwatch's psychics is there are no psychics lol

  • Bobby_LightPR Robert (@Bobby_LightPR) reported

    @macawcaw123 It's more an Overwatch killer than it is a CSGO killer. There are a ton of things to fix and change but it could be pretty great.

  • HoodieFern i miss you @nba (@HoodieFern) reported

    @PlayOverwatch FIX TIER 2 OF OVERWATCH

  • QuanFromCT Ace Trainer Quan (@QuanFromCT) reported

    Man all I wanted to do was play Overwatch and that shit not working

  • itsGGood Punisher (@itsGGood) reported

    Saying overwatch 2 is gonna fix everything is like flightreacts saying wait till June and he’ll become a 98 overall

  • LorekeeprDesert {LoReKeePer} DeSerT StReaM (@LorekeeprDesert) reported

    This is actually the second time it's happened although the first was years ago, back when I still played Overwatch But yeah my pc has tons of issues now and I haven't even had it that long :/ Kinda sad

  • ScuffyOW Scuffy📈 (@ScuffyOW) reported

    I have big brain idea let's all play wow so blizzard can get some money and finally fix overwatch and not destroy the ow esports scene. Nah jk they arent gonna fix it gr

  • SammichMakr Jess (@SammichMakr) reported

    I think I have a problem because overwatch is such dogshit but I can’t stop playing it.

  • JMiguelGMatos João Miguel Matos (@JMiguelGMatos) reported

    @EliavGz @SkyWilliams @summit1g Overwatch is a bad example, since there are a lot of broken heroes. R6 has abilities and besides one or two that are indeed annoying, none of them is broken, much less OP.

  • Vip3rOW Vip3r (@Vip3rOW) reported

    I still have a goal for overwatch and that is to play for contenders or play for world cup!! But if overwatch doesnt fix their shit i might switch to valorant

  • weetabeckss becksy (@weetabeckss) reported

    Someone called me a dumb **** on Overwatch; dont do it when I'm 3 wine glasses down!! They got absolutely ripped into bc they asked for heals when we were dead, charged in alone, ran off from heals as we tried to heal, but i was the problem bc

  • MAVwarrior2 Yami | Maverick Warrior (@MAVwarrior2) reported

    Yea, time to play paladins and Overwatch till they fix

  • red_scott red "THIS SPACE FOR SALE" scott (@red_scott) reported

    @dane is there an outage in the mission, I want to play Overwatch with @JesseFernandez and he doesn’t want to say anything but you’re letting us down!!!

  • apoIIoloko apollowo (@apoIIoloko) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent FIX YOUR SHITTY ASS SERVERS.. holy shit it won’t even let me get into overwatch

  • deobist lisa 🍓 (@deobist) reported

    um why is overwatch not working i’m gonna cry

  • Inner____Space Tucker (@Inner____Space) reported

    @ggukachuu Overwatch. Let us know if u can login. Ps4 is ****** up rn

  • xlolalilux Shiro ʕ•ﻌ•ʔ (@xlolalilux) reported

    @BlizzardCS hi I was in a Overwatch comp game on ps4 when I suddenly get disconnected and can’t log back in on any account. I know for a fact that it’s not my wifi bc I wasn’t even lagging and can use everything else just fine

  • FriendlySaijin Dekku (@FriendlySaijin) reported

    @Altrexy_ Its not just overwatch dude, its also some internet providers. Theres a lot of strain going on due to quarantine and people being at home over using the speeds. The unprecedented traffic surge will def make some people lag on certain times/days or even consistently

  • SpaceManSpince SpaceManSpince (@SpaceManSpince) reported

    @hinapriv i think you have to seperate yourself from what ever is actually causing the issues. If it's overwatch IMO i think you should hop on this Valorant bandwagon while you're still warm. I feel like you'd be pretty poggers

  • Austin40674475 Aussy (@Austin40674475) reported

    @natsuxerza22 Again, that doesn't guarantee anything in my book. From what I've seen from watching 12hrs worth of streams (Give me a key already, please.), it looks visually cluttered, which is a problem in other games, Overwatch is getting bad at that as well.

  • AlJPalchick Deck the H-Al-ls Palchick 🎄🎅🏼☃️ (@AlJPalchick) reported

    Valorant is gonna have a very similar issue to Overwatch. Too many dualists and not enough of the other roles

  • z3thon Rosson Long (@z3thon) reported

    @FreshNuts_OW I know that you recently took down all of your old content which was really sad because I had a whole favorites list of your videos that is now just broken links but it would be absolutely amazing to at least have the Best of 2019 Overwatch montage video you made back!

  • YeahImReflex Reflex (@YeahImReflex) reported

    I only play fortnite cause I enjoy what the building adds to fight, I don't play in the br basically ever and I only play creative. Fortnites audio is broken and I can't stand it anymore. So, anyone wanna hop on Overwatch or csgo and do some 1v1s and talk, hmu.

  • jessiegames95 just a forest hag (@jessiegames95) reported

    So I was getting a bit of connection issues while playing Overwatch tonight so I’m thinking of doing the Animal Crossing stream tomorrow. I don’t want to be dropping frames which I already worry about streaming switch games

  • darwin_barrera Nomicon (@darwin_barrera) reported

    @AidanBreshers There's a huge problem: during the Blizzard controversy, Nintendo THEMSELVES put a refund option for people that pre-ordered the Switch version of Overwatch, THEY NEVER DONE THAT, it also doesn't help that the port sold horribly.

  • Xylloz Xylloz (@Xylloz) reported

    @vootmoot yeah i just don’t get how people can still say aim assist is not broken. Imagine having aim assist in a multiple input game like overwatch. Overwatch has a huge following on console, but no one buys a pc and plugs in their controller like they do with fortnite.

  • notplacebo placebo (@notplacebo) reported

    @BlizzardCS this is happening on the switch version of overwatch as well from what ive heard so it couldnt be an issue on just ps4s part

  • iamchewb m.r.m.b ⁶𓅓 (@iamchewb) reported

    Overwatch get's way too much hate. It's a great game and I love to play it. So much love in it and never had a problem with cheaters, bugs or too broken gameplay.

  • Gamingwiz135 Attoram (@Gamingwiz135) reported

    @Slasher I feel Overwatch's problems came from trying to make a game designed for more casual play into something more hardcore/competitive focus. Plus the content drip being painfully slow.

  • dontkysily 𝔂𝓾𝓴𝓲 (@dontkysily) reported

    if the maintenance of league is any indication of valorant this game is going to crash & burn. i’m not interested in a rerun of overwatch dog metas & shit balance but riot :)

  • 43R_Glitch Glitch (@43R_Glitch) reported

    It’s possible that this is a problem on fortnite, but in my experience with Overwatch and Apex I think people need to suck it up and deal with it. Without aim assist most controller players wouldn’t be able to play the ******* game. And also mad cuz bad

  • kodealamode Kodealamode (@kodealamode) reported

    @PlayStation I was playing Modern Warfare and it froze, then other games such as Overwatch and Apex legends also froze. At the same time the system XMB and all things out of game were slow and filled with lag. That was yesterday, and today the whole system freezes.

  • teethfreaks teff (@teethfreaks) reported

    is overwatch down or smth i was on destiny zero problems but i tried to log into ovw and it wont let me in

  • spyder_byte ❄️Winter Widow🕸 (@spyder_byte) reported

    Can’t even okay overwatch because lag is so terrible ;u; what did I do to deserve this

  • ThatRandomTrex John (@ThatRandomTrex) reported

    The biggest problem I have with Valorant from all the gameplay I’ve seen is it looks really, really slow. Now that could be because I’m more accustomed to Overwatch and Paladins but Jesus Christ every character moves at the speed of a snail

  • haIIIwachi " (@haIIIwachi) reported

    @Indi9o_ @BlizzardCS I've had issues for weeks with my Blizzard Agent 'going to sleep' and having to uninstall Battlenet many times using Revo Uninstaller and deleting %appdata% and %programdata% cache just to update Overwatch or Warzone. It couldn't detect an update earlier but did it while I slept.

  • TitosDotCom Tito (@TitosDotCom) reported

    @bigstupid_idiot All jokes aside that shit will be broken as **** at first but they’ll balance it out I’m sure, but just like Overwatch it’ll have a niche group of people who play, not like League with millions of people playing. More than 30 million people play League everyday, hard to match.

  • tylerandrews08 Alpha (@tylerandrews08) reported

    @TheMasterKrook maybe thats not an overwatch problem but your lack of creative thinking lmao

  • MaxBakerTV Max (@MaxBakerTV) reported

    @AoretSC2 I have a gtx 980 so not necessarily modern anymore but it used to just crash Starcraft during crazy big fights, now it happens just whenever and I can’t play Apex or Overwatch without a crash lol

  • Dop3manYT DФPEMAN (@Dop3manYT) reported

    @_moyparra There in lies the problem, 99% of the hype driven around @PlayApex is the content creators and dataminers providing information about upcoming content. It's no surprise when a new character comes to LoL, it's not a MYSTERY in Overwatch, this idea is antiquated.

  • MansourKhalil87 JoJoFan87 (@MansourKhalil87) reported

    Legit sucks that events in Apex Legends have to lock the really good outfits behind a paywall, I look at Overwatch and I see this type of thing done right, Respawn need to work on this problem:

  • protecdaniel Mac10. (@protecdaniel) reported

    @Jaomock shit seems like a solution for a problem that don’t exist cs n overwatch r fine jus seems fun bc it’s new

  • pandoras_foxo communist-hacker-witch fox 🏳️‍⚧️🌹 (@pandoras_foxo) reported

    @KaraFlops it's like csgo but way less stale like, csgo blows because it's been effectively the same game for god knows how many years, but with new skins every so often overwatch is toxic & has team comp issues + high ttk (also the graphics are b/c it's beta aiui)

  • ARROWPAWS 💉 arrow 💉 (@ARROWPAWS) reported

    Overwatch is lagging so bad and for WHAT

  • ekelhaftes_holz Leo (@ekelhaftes_holz) reported

    @SUNSfanTV @syndereNDota @Slasher Honestly I feel like the CS playerbase is so stuck that #VALORANTbeta could never kill the game. Cs has so many issues and is doing better than ever. People don't want to switch. Overwatch feels like people look for excuses to finally stop playing it

  • XenoCrystsOW Yuuki Hayashi (@XenoCrystsOW) reported

    Also known as "We are a dead game but hope the Overwatch plane crash is ignored and that the dead passengers can come back to live"

  • Perplexer_OCE (@Perplexer_OCE) reported

    @coachginseng They've said on record that they want to let the community handle the early stages of the competitive scene, eg. Community tournaments and the like So I don't expect those issues to be a big thing like overwatch

  • ethilios23 ☀️William (Ethilios) Makins☀️ (@ethilios23) reported

    @PatchworkFennec The problem with this is to many people try and compare the game @PlayVALORANT with games like cs and Overwatch, when it seems similar it wont pose any challenge as people play their respective titles just coz of how they are. If they play valorant, its because they like it.

  • TTVtoothpaste toothpaste (crelm) (@TTVtoothpaste) reported

    @Julia_CaSsian i mean honestly for fans of tactical shooters there hasn't been a release like this in ages. it IS a pretty blatant rip off of CS but with a twist. looks to me like a skill shooter with abilities tacked on that aren't as ridiculous and broken as something like Overwatch

  • Klauz_Kreutzer Larkeicus (@Klauz_Kreutzer) reported

    @BlizzardCS @Ali_Boraby The problem is that Overwatch matches closes "unexpectedly" due to server error, it's been happening for at least 3 hours now and I can't even finish a single match, fix it.

  • dekuislife 𝔄𝔫𝔤𝔢𝔩𝔦𝔠 𝔚𝔞𝔦𝔣𝔲♋👑🌻 (@dekuislife) reported

  • UsagePower Power (@UsagePower) reported

    @cloudseaqueen i even installed overwatch to have something else to do in case this whole issue never got fixed

  • HentaiRose Inhaler Tayler ツ (@HentaiRose) reported

    Overwatch has been lagging for me really bad lately

  • Ali_Boraby Ali Boraby (@Ali_Boraby) reported

    @BlizzardCS there is a problem with Overwatch on PS4 servers right now and most of your social media person Myth’s tweets regarding this are riddled with spelling errors.

  • Juceten Justin (@Juceten) reported

    Idk why people try to act like they are still legit even with bans on record lol scream all you want that it's a false overwatch ban but that doesn't explain the other banned accounts and I've never had an issue on any of my accounts with false overwatch bans. 🍵🕙
