    @streamlabs Hiya, no matter what I do when I stream Overwatch the game stutters and hits like 20fps in OBS and stream only. I get like 160fps in game. Any idea what the problem is? I've tried bitrate ranges between 3000-6000 canvas and projected is both 1080p. thanks.

    @cdkeyscom Bought an xbox code from you last night for overwatch legendary edition.. Code didn't work!! I've emailed you twice now looking for advice.. Nothing!! You have until tomorrow to reply then I'm contacting PayPal for a refund.. No excuse for poor service!

  • wavymike_a a guy (@wavymike_a) reported

    @TMobile @SamsungMobile I would play CS:GO and Overwatch, 2 games I haven’t been able to play since my computer is broken and I haven’t gotten a new one

  • KluttN Isac Sixten Harming🥁🇸🇪 (@KluttN) reported

    @BlizzardCSEU_EN Is there a reason why we can’t see our overwatch ranks before the role queue was added to the game? Seems like this is not intended. Are you aware of this issue?

  • andrewtcaron Andrew Caron (@andrewtcaron) reported

    @XMissionStatus Are there still issues with upstream peers? Since Sept 16, my latency has been horrible/unplayable on Overwatch. Their West Coast servers are hosted on SIX.

  • NotFedlol Fed (@NotFedlol) reported

    @endercasts After is supposed to be agree, you get the idea. The issue is so many other games get it right so how can we just justify riot don't it badly in the way you have. Even something as simple as how overwatch disables new characters in ranked for a week would do so much good

  • timsswim Time Swimmer (@timsswim) reported

    @ChomperT @KabutoGroupChat Activision has enough to have their own roster. Crash, spyro, an overwatch rep, guitar hero rep, tony hawk, cod rep, warcraft rep, and uhhhh, candy crush saga? No need to force a non-sony ip into sony's roster.

  • AlexNsfwG 𝐀𝐥𝐞𝐱 ✨ (@AlexNsfwG) reported

    Going to play overwatch to avoid my anxiety problems 💀

  • genebbyy genebby 💜 (@genebbyy) reported

    the lag/loading times on switch overwatch may be awful but I like seeing how fast my beginning rollouts are by seeing if I get to my desired location before I even load in LMAO

  • _Smooshie_ Smooshie (@_Smooshie_) reported

    @taz3141 In overwatch yeah but when you allow a champ to recast it twice in one teamfight it might just be a little bit broken especially you see that damage she did.

  • KingKaiserX SMAXZO (@KingKaiserX) reported

    @TheLordOfLard Still playing Overwatch....I can see the problem now.

  • challahvalhalla ChallahValhalla (@challahvalhalla) reported

    nvm stream labs was not having it and was lagging. Playing Overwatch now :D

  • searls Justin Searls (@searls) reported

    @garybernhardt What if instead of OverWatch we'd gotten a Sega Soccer Slam Game as a Service

  • fareehaquinn quinn the pharah main (@fareehaquinn) reported

    I wish I had better internet cause i wanna play overwatch on ps4 with yall. I can play solo but it starts lagging whem I'm in groups

  • catb0ynagi robbie (@catb0ynagi) reported

    i had this problem with overwatch and sadly had to stop playing because my anxiety would sky rocket everytime i tried to play :(

  • Level99K Mark (@Level99K) reported

    @Spektrace @PopeOutlaw @Slasher Anti cheats aren't even reliable. CS still has cheating issues with a "good" anti-cheat system. Fortnite, Overwatch, Warzone all have cheaters to this day, even with "good anti-cheat". You're clueless if you think PC doesn't constantly deal with it. Even chess online has cheats.

  • mattnewsacc gucci belt (@mattnewsacc) reported

    @IntroSpecktive To put it in perspective, what if Sony bought activision and took all their ip’s and deals and made them exclusive. Xbox would loose COD, Overwatch, Diablo, Tony Hawk, Skylanders, Spyro, Crash. The list goes on.

  • NickFromHawaii NickFromHawaii (@NickFromHawaii) reported

    @milkche_ Also, sometimes men don't have the mental capacity to afford a girlfriend IRL. Instead, they just play League. Or Blade and Soul. Or Overwatch. Or Rocket League. Or Starcraft 2... I might have a problem.

  • j04danC Jordan (@j04danC) reported

    @BlizzardCS Overwatch on Xbox One X won’t start. Telling me I need to be signed into Xbox Live even though I am and other games are working. I’ve tried a restart. Overwatch is only game not working.

  • Abeer__96 Abeer (@Abeer__96) reported

    @DeadByBHVR Your game is broken on console!! Every online game that i play from overwatch to fall guys work perfectly fine. But yours get me into one game then bans me frim the server !! I told you about this in the email and you said its my internet!! Its your game !! Other games work fine!

  • FeeLaSieste 🦑🌸 Fée Néante 🧚‍♀️✨ (@FeeLaSieste) reported

    My problem is that I have way too many hobbies (animal crossing, overwatch, mmd, etc) and as a curious and very involved person I like to go as far as I can in each of them However it's obviously not possible to balance them and I always end up putting a hobby aside

  • CerberuStyx Cerbie "Luxray" "Triple Bee" Rusty (@CerberuStyx) reported

    @pharahdise Even if Overwatch 2 turns out good, there's a lot they'll have to fix to earn our trust back 😪

  • MogMoira Moira_MoG_Oasis (@MogMoira) reported

    There are still so many things about Overwatch and the Crisis that I do not know. - How did anybody persuade so many governments to fund a centralised solution to the Crisis at a time when they were all very much divided and dealing with their own problems?

  • LadyNocturnal__ 🌙 (@LadyNocturnal__) reported

    @BlizzardCS Hi, I’m having an issue with voice chat on Xbox One Overwatch. I can hear other players but my mic is not picking up my voice. My account has no parental settings on and auto join for all voice chat options are on.

  • deadnormies Normies (@deadnormies) reported

    PC culture is so dumb you could call someone a retard in 2016 and no one would care, 2020 if a overwatch player says retard it's a massive issue

  • vampxrebarbie 𝔮𝔲𝔦𝔫𝔫⁷ ⧗♥️⟭⟬♠️보라해 💜 🔞 (@vampxrebarbie) reported

    @rosecoloredjmn unless things have changed in the last few years overwatch had the same issue overseas bc gambling addiction is treated SUPER seriously in the country the ban happened. some kid in the uk i think racked up like 2k in debt stealing their parents credit card for vanity items

  • DecanoZ deeiiiiveedd (@DecanoZ) reported

    Overwatch community: Dive bad. Please fix. Blizzard: Okay. *adds Brigitte Overwatch Community: *creates GOATS comp Overwatch community: Noooo! Remove Brig! So bad!

  • Lucio__txt AKA best Lucio (@Lucio__txt) reported

    maybe im doing things before winston tells me i can do them, but what is more overwatch than going behind your commander's back to deal with a problem your own way?

  • ChihoNoHigeki 𝑽. (@ChihoNoHigeki) reported

    Needs to find a place to crash for the night, he burned his own home down out of anger. Overwatch pissed him off.
