    I was salty when it happened but I can't get mad. I've seen that person on Overwatch before and I have no problems with them. Oh, and I use spawn room heals like a little *****, too. 😂

  • oagjest oagjest (@oagjest) reported

    @BlizzardCSEU_EN Got DCed from my last 7 games due to "unexpected server error" in Overwatch. Both from comp and QP games. Happened to bot me and everyone in the game. A statement would be appriciated

  • WilliamTri6 William Tri (@WilliamTri6) reported

    @PlayOverwatch can you help me fix this problem when I launch overwatch It turns into a black screen and i get kicked out of overwatch

  • bamckl bamcki (@bamckl) reported

    @rgreentext Overwatch is the shittiest game out there. But the problem I have with the game is that I can't stop playing it

  • jinxowo jinxuwu (@jinxowo) reported

    Realistically I'd love to streams scrimms or even just Overwatch , but there's no consistent bitrate I can stream. Hopefully @Suddenlink will have this upload outage fixed soon. Going into our second day for this particular outage and month 3 for issues in general.

  • BarbaraSuckya Barbara SuckYa**** (@BarbaraSuckya) reported

    @HoshizoraOCE Omg looks like the devs reading the comments about broken things in overwatch

  • DeerlyBLoved Trash Cat Mk. II (@DeerlyBLoved) reported

    Also worth noting this is an issue with Overwatch and ONLY Overwatch. Even BNet's voice chat detects my shit no problem

  • OtterTem ❄️ Temmerz ❄️ (@OtterTem) reported

    The balance patch for Overwatch can't come soon enough. The current state of GM ladder is: if the enemy runs goats, and you don't, you're basically throwing. I don't know why Blizzard takes 6 months to fix broken balance.

  • HunterBres Hunter Breslin (@HunterBres) reported

    No clue why, but recently overwatch has had bad lag spikes, where my audio is completely raspy and I drop 20 frames 😫

  • _hugzxz "/ (@_hugzxz) reported

    if you report msgs and complain about how toxic the overwatch community you most likely have daddy issues

  • YaAuntie4 Ya Auntie (@YaAuntie4) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent Overwatch is so ******* garbage it’s so bad right now I can barely play the game for 30 min without me getting mad I don’t have fun anymore fix your trash game it’s so unplayable the matching is ******* trash fix it I want to be able to have fun again.

  • NotDracon Dracon (@NotDracon) reported

    which brings me to my final point: overwatch's biggest problem is that it's an FPS being balanced by a company who's ONLY made RTS* games, and it really shows in their design decisions (*I'm condensing their MMOs and MOBAs here, implicitly)

  • hpheisler hans / peter (@hpheisler) reported

    i am just so fascinated by the older league characters because they're not Offensively Bad by any stretch, they're just from a game that doesn't exist anymore. we can already see that visual disconnect happening in overwatch.

  • MorganRPark Morgan Park, Boi (@MorganRPark) reported

    @ZwiezenZ i noticed! as someone also covering a service game that ISNT fortnite, overwatch, or apex legends, i know there aren't many of us!

  • Granthn60sean Grant H (@Granthn60sean) reported

    @mfdamo Exactly, overwatch is a pretty old game, and not until recently was soldier 76 stayed as gay, again I have no problems with gay people, but seriously this late in the games life

  • batwiccan ⭐️ (@batwiccan) reported

    I know this is old news but **** Overwatch SUCKS please fix this game

  • spankminister Roommate with Different Values (@spankminister) reported

    @Kinowolf @WoolieWoolz For a while when my tendinitis flared up in my left hand I did this on PC with a Wii nunchuck+mouse. It’s really comfortable but my issue with Overwatch was it only has two buttons.

  • Greyhound227 Tyler (@Greyhound227) reported

    @TheMrVon We just have to wait a little bit longer. I trust that blizzard recognizes what's wrong with the game currently and are taking the appropriate steps to fix them. Overwatch 2 is just beyond the horizon

  • r8clickbait238 R8clickbait238 (@r8clickbait238) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent fix your ******* shitty ass overwatch, it's not fun anymore it's just shit

  • ruby_ebook faker ruby (@ruby_ebook) reported

    fix overwatch mmr loss 2k17

  • pyrrhaqua Pyrrha (@pyrrhaqua) reported

    It's really shitty for OWL to encourage trash talk when Overwatch has a huge problem with toxic players.

  • CamscamIsHere Camscam (@CamscamIsHere) reported

    The problem is is that in Overwatch you go from “feeling you’re actually worth something and you might actually be as good as the top players (or at least getting there)” to “I’m hard-stuck diamond just like everyone keeps telling me”. To me that’s a HUGE problem. The game...

  • Jonin_OW Jonin (@Jonin_OW) reported

    @PlayOverwatch So I put on my SMS protect on for my overwatch account and have played over 50 games and not once I got into the leaderboards in NA. I don't know what is the problem.

  • knks220 ...effervescent (@knks220) reported

    overwatch is lagging so hard for me omg im over it

  • FionaNova Fiona Nova (@FionaNova) reported

    @Kinowolf The entire game needs a patch, but they don’t wanna fix it cause it goes against “overwatch morals”

  • ChaseKolozsi Chase Kolozsi (@ChaseKolozsi) reported from Los Angeles, California

    *Plays #Overwatch for the 1st time in months* Match: 1: win, no problems 2: leaver, lose 3: leaver, lose 4: someone calls me a *** in voice for no reason, we lose 5: teammate says he 1-tricks Lucio, we lose. 6: 1-trick Lucio leaves, we lose The community ruins this #videogame.

  • Chalklate_Rain TJ (@Chalklate_Rain) reported

    I'm starting to think a lot of the #overwatch balance issues are coming from the fact that they won't balance Tracer properly. A player on Tracer is factually better than her peers of the same skill level because of her overloaded kit...

  • Osakaxo Osaka 🐝 (@Osakaxo) reported

    @its_a_kris @MitchTeep this is the overwatch community puppy. Respect him and we won’t have problems

  • soospire mari (@soospire) reported

    spotify web app crashed right when i was in a ranked overwatch match and made my whole game lag like crazy (obviously we got defeated) @Spotify get it together or i might delete that sh*t

  • batwiccan ⭐️ (@batwiccan) reported

    Reaper is so ******* broken oh my GOD @ Overwatch fix this shit

  • JoshSnipesR6 JoshSnipes (@JoshSnipesR6) reported

    @InterroTalks @MortenRyberg @G2Pengu To add to this if you play Overwatch, teams that run GOATS will generally do better than a team that is not running a proper comp. The problem in Siege is a lot of players do not want to run proper comps and end up with no hard breach or thatcher which is dumb for most sites.

  • vanillamarble_ Marble 🧣 (@vanillamarble_) reported

    I mean I still love overwatch but....come on this is the most BORING meta the game has ever had. Their balance patches are too slow and they never fix the issue. I don’t want to watch a 6v6 with the exact same comp 😔🤙

  • LeLordSandwich Whisk'man (@LeLordSandwich) reported

    @OverwatchFR fix Insurgency and nerf Paradin please

  • myrima4 myrima🏳️‍🌈⃠ (@myrima4) reported

    @reqwza @hopes_is_a_god u ddos and mnk in season 15 console overwatch and think there is any possible way to justify being good

  • PinkBorussia Pink (@PinkBorussia) reported

    Why is overwatch so shit rn fix the metaaaa we ve playing this for almost a year

  • jayplaysthings Jay Castello 🌻 (@jayplaysthings) reported

    Oh god adding an ad banner to every fan sign in the Overwatch League stadium is horrible

  • Sharayah1992 Sharayah Davis (@Sharayah1992) reported

    I love how Overwatch will randomly kick people from a sever and then suspend you. Lol! Will be uninstalling until they fix that little issue, as well as the one where they decide to put you with crap teams for your placements if they feel you did too well the previous season.

  • ruby_ebook faker ruby (@ruby_ebook) reported

    @sycamore_goat Don’t sit on the internet dude put your enormous ass somewhere that won’t give me lag in Overwatch

  • NoJustBilly Big Egg_ (@NoJustBilly) reported

    If you were to ask me what my problem with entertainment media it would be that I mistake the Infinity War theme and the Overwatch theme for each other constantly.

  • angexboo ange 🧸 (@angexboo) reported

    hello 911 how 2 fix my declining sr in overwatch

  • xOnlyAshesx Actual (Debatably) Human Disaster™️ (@xOnlyAshesx) reported

    @EffYouHuffer I'm so sick of having to pay almost 5x the price of a pop to import it because I have a problem and need the entire overwatch pop collection

  • armanddc Armand (@armanddc) reported

    @exgangleader @PaladinsGame PC -_- this game would be 2x better than what Overwatch could be if it had less bugs and if it was less broken

  • Shinx85 DESTROYER OF THE ELDERLY (@Shinx85) reported

    Only wanting to play overwatch at 4am but realize only try Hards like me play at this hour is a problem

  • horatio_sanchez Talking Sloth (@horatio_sanchez) reported

    @cherrydew no but seriously I think it would legitimately do a lot to curb the issue because it *does* affect perception of the game. if overwatch was rated M a lot of parents would be less willing to get it for their kid

  • Zarachiel_Rhys Zack (@Zarachiel_Rhys) reported

    @kjo_mino Yeah that's the biggest issue when it comes to PVP. And it's a shame. Honestly I would take anything even remotely close to what you described. Apex Legends feels good at least. The character abilities give a solid Overwatch feel while in an FPS battle royale.

  • zxid94 Johnny but pronounced with J like in Jose (@zxid94) reported

    Remember that Overwatch patch update that was basically fix a bug that made Roadhog boob smaller when he sit and now we can appreciate Hog tits in its round glory.

  • drea01455 zakir (@drea01455) reported

    @XboxSupport I refused overwatch and it said refund failed and now it will not let me play the game it says either your purchase was refund or your preorder was canceled. If you didn't cancel it, make sure your payment is current my xbox name is darksoul8523 please fix it. :)

  • SethTheHuman Seth Johnston (@SethTheHuman) reported

    okay, so I've decided I'm not gonna keep going with this Overwatch thing, the game has way too many issues regarding balancing and at this point it's just straight up not fun for me anymore. So, I'm thinking it's time for me to start taking Apex Ledgends seriously

  • Paradigm_True 💡Paradigm💡 🔜 Battlefield 9 (@Paradigm_True) reported

    Due to CPU issues with our broadcasting setup, Friday Night Fights nor Overwatch Lighthouse 3 will be streamed. We apologize for the inconvenience and we will have it operational as soon as possible!

  • BeefStrips jen (@BeefStrips) reported

    i just wanna play overwatch without it lagging or shitty wifi

  • IcyMermaid_Krys Krystal (@IcyMermaid_Krys) reported

    @ChazzS14 Fortnite didnt do anything to Overwatch, Overwatch killed it self with broken characters, boring events and a god awful development team

  • PotaDlayer 🐞 DYED™ 🇮🇹 (@PotaDlayer) reported

    @lucysaries Overwatch's main problem with balance lies in the fact that they listen too much to the player's feedback, whether they point out legit flaws in the game or just cry about some characters being too powerful, or not powerful enough.

  • uzairezidy Jai👑 (@uzairezidy) reported

    @PlayApex I thought it was a good game to switch from @FortniteGame or @OverwatchLatAm but now since they are doing nothing about hackers, bugs and etc. Im just going back to better developed games. I hope they fix it in a short time before permanently losing their fans.

  • MonteCristo MonteCristo (@MonteCristo) reported

    @RubberWu @RatchetCow You can say the same thing about CSGO and it is a perfectly viable esport. My job relies on people watching esports, and that is not a problem with Overwatch currently.
