Overwatch Issues Reports

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

    @fur_yiff @egglikesbaal @OWAnonymous_ The problem with Overwatch is just that. Widow players play the character as if they played games like CoD or CSGO. This is another big reason why her character just doesn't work in OW. I know guys who came straight from CSGO to Widowmaker before double shield 1/?

  • ShinyWallBrick The R. (@ShinyWallBrick) reported

    @JulesSimioni @Mattwo7 @TF2OutofContext No, Overwatch died because it had issues with balance, which got brought up by strange changes, and new characters that were unbalanced to the point of breaking the game or be useless. Also the toxicity of the players that leaded bad publicity for an artificial eSports game.

  • Loki_del_sol Loki del sol (@Loki_del_sol) reported

    @CrownCosmo ...gonna be honest, Cosmo, from someone who complained about people calling overwatch "dead" because it was less popular, this is kinda hypocritical. Especially since this has nothing to do with the problem?

  • GhostyGump GhostyGump (@GhostyGump) reported

    If you want Valve to update TF2 here's what you can do: >Stop Playing the game >Stop buying from the mann co store >Play Overwatch >Email valve about the problem Instead you guys would rather self promote yourself through a tweet campaign.

  • The_Wild_Wang Wild **** (@The_Wild_Wang) reported

    @BlizzardCS “failed to connect to server” for the last couple hours on Overwatch. Says I’ve joined a game then I get the error.

  • mochii_tokyo Vtuber | Tokyo Mochii (@mochii_tokyo) reported

    Seems like it was a overwatch issue didn’t see the C key being spammed.

  • mik_sharov Mikhail Sharov (@mik_sharov) reported

    @OniiKamii Have you tried updating your GPU drivers? I ran into a similar problem in Overwatch a long time ago

  • hoesthetix օɨ (@hoesthetix) reported

    Overwatch has a nice system where you can ban people you don’t wanna meet again. MK should have the same thing. Lag switchers , Mashers should all be thrown in a bin somewhere.

  • EsperSKS esper 「エスパ-」 (@EsperSKS) reported

    The biggest problem with Overwatch is it can be lost by one player but it can't be won by a singer player. In games like CSGO, Valorant, and even Apex to an extent you can at the very least "carry". Smart plays and aim will take you far. Overwatch is just unsatisfying to play.

  • ravencrestskull folie à deux (@ravencrestskull) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent Fix your ******* game you worthless excuse of a development company. Overwatch is unplayable, and it takes 6 years for bullshit ow2. Useless.

  • SonyaLynn SonyaInTheBin (@SonyaLynn) reported

    @joshhaber @Julius_Kim Yeah, the FPS comment is pretty off the mark, unlike the rest. The FPSs that glorify realistic guns, combat, and killing are a problem, IMHO, but there are also FPSs with a far more cartoonish and harmless quality, like Fortnite and Overwatch. As always, YMMV.

  • DasRuedi DasRüdi (@DasRuedi) reported

    @arkclaimer Why would we need a sequel for a live service game? Did overwatch 2 really make people believe that games as such profit from sequels?

  • DreadpirateRomy Romolus (Vaxxed and still wearing a mask, fools.) (@DreadpirateRomy) reported

    @MrsP123 -WoW off and on -76 off and on -Overwatch until I get too annoyed at folks I'm forced to group with. -Fortnight solos, just enough to scratch the Nuclear Winter itch (I've opted to not buy anything for that game, due to poor costumer service from EPIC) -ACNH,building up my Island

  • KimmyKsbro kimmy Øksbro (@KimmyKsbro) reported

    @MicrosoftHelps AUTO HDR is broken Overwatch have random blackout

  • XeroForever XeroForever (@XeroForever) reported

    @OW_ICED I think the problem is: is that it effectively kills the popularity or even the potential of other hero arena shooters. Like why play this "when you could just play Overwatch". Battleborne died, Lawbreakers died, Crucible shot itself in the foot kind if but it had some thing cool

  • AWonderfulSound Solemn Sound (@AWonderfulSound) reported

    @indie__scum @AskPlayStation Overwatch... that's your problem.

  • chubchilla1 Chubchilla (@chubchilla1) reported

    @VETTE____ @OW_ICED 343 can’t manage Halo Infinite. Based on what we have heard from devs, it seems like most of the issues with Overwatch stem from Activision Blizzard nonsense forcing them to spend months on ideas they don’t want to do then scrapping them after tons of work.

  • WorldsXbox XboxWorlds (@WorldsXbox) reported

    @MrGuruBill @OfficialXboxU Last year they had Crash 4, Tony Hawk and COD Vanguard. This year they have COD slated right now. Overwatch 2 and Diablo 4 should be close though, either this year or next year.

  • junna_anya Junna (@junna_anya) reported

    @ApexDaemon This issue and the fact that the game blues teens my pc is why i dont play it anymore. XD. I'll stick to overwatch twt.

  • AclnGG Dash Criminal (@AclnGG) reported

    @blooprintgames Bad fps, broken rocks, terrible phone game like UI Unused monuments No true endgame since they remove every farm Broken nights Progression is too fast ONCE AGAIN THE UI's suck no skill in having a team now And now they are adding visual hitmarkers? What is this overwatch?

  • nillamooon ☾ ⋆⁺₊⋆nilla⋆⁺₊⋆ ☽ (@nillamooon) reported

    my overwatch comms are broken how am i supposed to bully men in these conditions?

  • indie__scum indie__scum (She/They) 🔜 Anime Boston (@indie__scum) reported

    Tried to update overwatch like 7x today only to be kicked out and met with a Ce-30034-0 error :( @AskPlayStation

  • TolkienToast Roger⚔️11 Days until disney!! (@TolkienToast) reported

    Its anyone else's overwatch lagging so badly rn?

  • Player2Joypad Ty (タイ) (@Player2Joypad) reported

    @ReviewsPossum Dude trying to make it sound like a round of overwatch with balancing issues

  • entmiruru entmiruru (@entmiruru) reported

    @AetherMoose @dafran The problem with Overwatch is structural, any FPS game should not have tank dps support settings, all successful FPS games on the market only have characters with similar abilities, not character settings.

  • loljeb11 yaboijeb (@loljeb11) reported

    @KosmicKobra Wait until the PVE for Overwatch 2 comes out, ****** gonna be saying that Doomfist is too broken 💀

  • JeryceDia Jeryce Dianingana | Rocksteady (@JeryceDia) reported

    People are so unaware of "Africa" that when you make Afro art they will go through everything before saying it's actually reminding them of Africa Nop gotta be : - Atlantis, Majora Mask, Ghibli, Maori, Crash Bandicoot, League of legend, Overwatch, Manga etc etc. Or Wakanda

  • TheNamesYurii Ꝃ Ꝍ Ꝟ 𐌄 Ꞑ (@TheNamesYurii) reported

    @Penguiinn1 @The_Apxche Ok bud you play a broken role and are upset when you can’t 1v6 because a shield was placed in front of you. OW2 literally ruins core fundamentals of OW1, aka, ruining overwatch.

  • terror_taco Idk (@terror_taco) reported

    @CrackHeadAndres The problem was that he was from overwatch
