    love that Overwatch 2 thinks fair matchmaking is putting me (gold 1) on an entire team of plats both friendly and enemy like I have to deal with people spamming how much I suck but we still win. Like yeah I’m not supposed to be here! @PlayOverwatch please fix matchmaking bruh.

  • KometteVt Komette, ENVtuber (@KometteVt) reported

    Just got off a stream that was mostly troubleshooting tech issues for Elite Dangerous VR on the Oculus! We were raided by the glorious @SpoonLoeffel also playing Elite, and we raided into the lovely @Weaklyt7 who was playing Overwatch!

  • nickkrillin Nick (@nickkrillin) reported

    @Misel_here @_Yoso_ @AquamarineOW Because in all of overwatch's history, mercy damage boost has been a problem. That's all the point was.

  • NobodyDisguise Pear (@NobodyDisguise) reported

    @xo_shush i literally had to stop playing Overwatch as a whole because it would crash 3 times a day every day

  • DeltaGames24 Doug (@DeltaGames24) reported

    I have never, with all of the other games I play, had a game crash, ever. Overwatch, Apex, CS, Valorant, PGA, anything. COD crashes AT LEAST twice a day Miss me with that "there's something wrong with your computer" argument, this game is GARBAGE #CallOfDuty

  • RockLeeSmile Nick Reineke (@RockLeeSmile) reported

    @JerpDoesGames I've gotten this same issue with Overwatch players. I'm getting upset at people who are probably new for making what feel like really obvious mistakes but forget I have nearly 2000 hours in the game now.

  • rnorude delilah (@rnorude) reported

    spent $600 on a car service Pls consider sending overwatch gold to me as a form of donation for my poor soul

  • UncalculatedG Uggie (@UncalculatedG) reported

    Launched Overwatch 2 for the very first time just to see if it was my battle. net broken or just cod… OW worked 😔

  • Treasach Trey Capnerhurst (@Treasach) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent So tired of seeing broken backs with tiddies bigger than their face to represent "women". It's 2023. Do better. #Hearthstone #Overwatch #WOW

  • NemuiOnTrial 🔞Punished, Jailed, Then Trialed, Still No Shame🔞 (@NemuiOnTrial) reported

    Overwatch season 3 is ending in two weeks (I think). Making an alt account for season 4 and haven't decided on the name. Slapping a poll to help brainstorm. I'm open to suggests, the theme is any lolisho related name or lolisho vtuber. Suggest things that won't get me in trouble.

  • vkuraokami Kura.. (@vkuraokami) reported

    @Pyrfct I always hated sniper in only fps, specifically widow from overwatch. With destiny my problem is I hit these ***** in the head yet I still get headshotted, but then again I’m just too aggro

  • FPSClicked FPSClicked (@FPSClicked) reported

    Just my take but having irl issues before a tourney is fine and understandable. However, tanking your team because of it is not. Overwatch isn't everything to you, fine. However, acting like this shows their significance for you to not go out and support them during that time.

  • SilentDrPigeon SilentDrPigeon (@SilentDrPigeon) reported

    Overwatch rank is so unbalanced that I had a Diamond 1 tank, silver DPS and a plat 3 support ??? I really can't wait for next season where they fix this for good

  • Irregular4evr Irregular (@Irregular4evr) reported

    @doned_itb0ye @neohhhhhhhhhhhh @realhue666 Well, overwatch took 4 years to makes 3 characters and 1 gamemode with slightly better graphics with zero meaningful changes to gameplay and when it was actually released noone could play it for a whole week and they blamed it on ddos.

  • Biskit206 Passionista (@Biskit206) reported

    @TooDiffizzle Like Im sure we’ve had objectively worse metas before, but I’ve broken one monitor before. One time. When overwatch released Brigitte and I couldn’t deal with that anymore. I honestly put this on the same level of just pure imbalance

  • year0008 mikey (@year0008) reported

    does anyone know why my overwatch black screens? like it isnt lagging, its opening but the screen is just black. its the only game it happens with.

  • WatchmensClctiv WatchmensCollective (@WatchmensClctiv) reported

    @FrontlineGamer @Brilliam314 @UniDaSensei The other 5 being mostly support studios for CoD at this point with really Toys fir Bob being only studio that does significant dev outside of that with Crash and Spyro. Blizzard focus is on primarily WoW then OverWatch and well after that Hearthstone. It may give MS more bodies,

  • TaiDaug 太一 (Taichi) (@TaiDaug) reported

    @wholesomecoach @BS_artsss Justifications don't excuse what happened. I honestly love Activision and Blizzards IPs It's a shame I'll never play Tony Hawk, COD, Overwatch, Warcraft, Diablo, or any new Crash and Spyro games ever again. Quit crying around what games I decide not to play. LMAO

  • issh0mans a lowly tarnished (@issh0mans) reported

    i’m so ******* annoyed why am i suddenly having performance issues on overwatch. all of the settings are set to either low or off. but I’m having constant fps dips and lag

  • _Yoso_ Yoso (streaming on YT) (@_Yoso_) reported

    @nickkrillin @Misel_here @AquamarineOW it has never been, the overwatch devs saw the outrage about the damage mercy boost a couple months ago and correctly assessed that the problem was her mobility, not the damage boost, because it's a tradeoff between healing and boosting

  • NotAllowed0ut Quadruple C (@NotAllowed0ut) reported

    @Sasoriiya Overwatch isn't the main issue man

  • _Synlo Synlo (@_Synlo) reported

    @SigmaJizz @OWAnonymous_ If hanzo's bullet is seriously that much of a problem to you, you probably played no FPS but overwatch. I'm sorry but even if it's a bit less reliable, it doesn't make it an absolute problem for the character in my opinion especially considering the rest of the kit

  • SxRAtlas SxR Atlas (@SxRAtlas) reported from Lake Orion, Michigan

    After deleting and reinstalling Apex, still getting these connectivity errors. Guess I’m on overwatch

  • Staygamingmedia Stay Gaming Media (@Staygamingmedia) reported

    Hey @PlayOverwatch @Activision @Blizzard_Ent there’s a real issue about certain overwatch characters that you haven’t addressed: Ramattra: Ultimate is TOO long Diva: her ultimate is still too wide a radius Zenyata: still doesn’t have a mobility. (the evolution of his character)

  • MegaMilkMax 🥛18+ (Comms Open) (🏳️‍⚧️🏳️‍🌈 safe space) (@MegaMilkMax) reported

    Overwatch cycle *queues as tank* *has terrible DPS* *queues as DPS* *has a terrible tank* *queues as support* *has a terrible tank and DPS* In conclusion, support is never usually the problem. Sincerely, an Ana main Thank you for coming to my TED Talk.

  • Aarow_16 Aaron Anderson (@Aarow_16) reported

    @MARKGOW55207888 @Xbox_Series_XS For what? They offered them they will abide by them. But they have signed no deal with PS & after 10 years they could take it away & force Gamepass onto Nintendo & PS. All the other IPs are PC & Xbox only now. Spyro, Crash, Warcraft, StarCraft, Tony Hawk & future Overwatch games

  • AlphaWolf1679 AlphaWolf (@AlphaWolf1679) reported

    @JasonWMTT @haskell420 @destinytrack Then you should be perma banned from everything lmao as your clearly the problem Youd probably play overwatch then get pissed when a tank and dps dont heal your fat *** XDDD

  • deruko97 Deruko♍️ (@deruko97) reported

    @BlizzardCS i cannot spectate nobody in my friends list in Overwatch 2, ever since the game had launched I couldn’t spectate anyone in game, I always had them send me a invite so I can spectate, fix this bug please #overwatch2 @Blizzard_Ent @PlayOverwatch

  • FeederDiff Paisanu2 (@FeederDiff) reported

    @hand_so_bestdps @OW_SVB Sure, but the problem is having to switch to specifically ana. Think about how the dive meta in late overwatch 1 forced every support to flex into brig. Having only one hero be a counter pick to something that is generally good and not niche is completely unhealthy for the game
