    Overwatch is A good game. If people spent as much Time fighting for “who’s role is most important” , spend It instead on bugging Developers to fix the problems , It would be a Great game.

  • theLarryCage_ drunkdriver78 (@theLarryCage_) reported

    @TheSymbolistFGC why does live service imply that the game will be treated and balanced as if its a moba or something? like that sounds like overwatch or some **** not a fighting game how does live service imply that

  • dusty_dino Dusty_Dino (@dusty_dino) reported

    Guess what everyone I think I solved the issue!!!! So one more stream again today to see if it doesn’t crash!!!! So at 3PST join me and some friends for overwatch!!

  • TheSenshiVenom Andrew (@TheSenshiVenom) reported

    @onehandedbndt I would say the view of fun is subjective. I have fun in a comp setting with ranked overwatch. If I lose it isn't like before. People see elden ring as fun, I don't cause the frustration from it does not seem fun to me. I think people taking games to serious is the issue.

  • Lion8769OW Lion8769 (@Lion8769OW) reported

    @lueyow Tbh I think the formatting for a "championship series" is fine the way it is (the long haul) I think the issue that collegiate Overwatch has is that the OWCC is basically the only centralized tournament. Shorter tournaments always yield smaller fields (idk why) 1/2

  • iyaoyasWOF Robert Bourque (@iyaoyasWOF) reported

    @trublood505 @FortniteGame It’s only against PC players. And it ONLY happens in Fortnite. I’m big into Overwatch 2 and it never glitches with crossplay. Thinking it may be a software issue for PC and Xbox consoles. I completely quit playing solo even though I have close to 2k wins.

    venting's a bad name I hate overwatch crash

  • meowIody fluttershy (@meowIody) reported

    guyfs i want to stream overwatch or smth so bad pls fix me

  • AAngryAudio AlwaysAngryAudio (@AAngryAudio) reported

    The Overwatch community is an embarrassing display of incels who can't wait to suggest everyone but them is the problem. They've been told "It's not you, it's me" so many times they've ****** internalized it.

  • DizianOW Dizian (@DizianOW) reported

    @PipeLayer62 It happens, I just sorta call it overnight rust Keep in mind there’s a chance it’s NOT you and Overwatch, I constantly have to restart my entire PC to sometimes fix awkward mouse lag before it feels “right” Overwatch has absolutely terrible optimization settings

  • DizianOW Dizian (@DizianOW) reported

    @PipeLayer62 Dude I’ve felt this so hardcore for years, I’ve always had slight input lag on my PC when I run Overwatch (literally only OW), it feels ******* awful and jank and it’s like everything I do becomes RNG based

  • BunchesMelia MELia Bunches 🤡🐱 Clown Vtuber (@BunchesMelia) reported

    i dont know what the issue with my computer can be at this point idk why games like fortnite and overwatch keep crashing i tried everything with the drivers to think it not that. i just hope i dont got to replace anything 🥺

  • bicboicj Julius (@bicboicj) reported

    Why does everyone i team up with on Overwatch suck @PlayOverwatch fix your match making please

  • imrhettbutler Andrew Cody Morales (@imrhettbutler) reported from City of Vancouver, Washington

    Overwatch 2’s matching maker is broken AF.

  • 1nonlyjisoo Jisoo (@1nonlyjisoo) reported

    @ModernWarzone Never understood the incessant bitching about multiplayer games. I have no issue with WZ2 or overwatch or whatever. They would have to make huge wild changes that interfere with my gameplay. Which they just happened to not do to me.

  • DrelaSoul14 DreLaSoul (@DrelaSoul14) reported

    @AoiKypher Overwatch needs to fix ranked

  • dusty_dino Dusty_Dino (@dusty_dino) reported

    I am going to attempt to stream some Overwatch today at 5pst crossing my fingers that OBS doesn't give me issues!

  • moogdraws moog 🍨 ムーグ @ Project: SATURN 🪐 (@moogdraws) reported

    I love Overwatch but solo queue hurts… I don’t want to be called the r slur for having a bit of lag and being the only one playing on point 🥲

  • LetsTakeWalk LetsTakeAWalk (@LetsTakeWalk) reported

    Overwatch has become absolute trash. Aaron and his incompetent devs ruined it by making broken matchmaker even worse, on top of absolute horrendous balancing. They need to be fired #overwatch2

  • MooreDausen Dausen Moore (@MooreDausen) reported

    @ArkJurassic @SteveChillGame Halo is weirdly one of the few games where people have standards lol. Overwatch 2 launched with every issue Infinite had and many more, yet I don't see have the drama for it. I have no idea why so many people still play MW2 lol. MW2 is so much worse than Halo imo.

  • mr_pineappl3s Alessandro (@mr_pineappl3s) reported

    Hope they fix the Overwatch account being shadow banned before they release information on the new hero or Season 4.

  • papa_nurgle_ Blue_Rooster_Face (@papa_nurgle_) reported

    @spragels @minishep_ They have to fix whatever they changed with matchmaking. My buddy we are trying to get back into the game gets paired against masters five stacks and he's vet 5 duo-ing with another vet player. Then Zacian 1 on 3's his team chasing them up the flux and he's back to overwatch.

  • karenborja karen ❥ ksimbuilds 🌷 (@karenborja) reported

    I don't know if the problem is my isp or the game itself. I was trying to stream overwatch on youtube and I keep being booted out of the game. :/

  • N4buky ɴᴀʙᴜ 🌿🤍 (@N4buky) reported

    @Rooeybooey @a2dq223 roo remember that one time where you called me slurs that u couldn’t claim because of ur skill issue in overwatch comp

  • nannudidarr Nannu Didar (@nannudidarr) reported

    idk why console players keep crying about ximmers, if you have a issue with ximmers then just switch to pc, overwatch devs does not give a **** about console gaming, all you can do is cry like a baby and won’t achieve anything from it.

  • NewPlayer9845 NewPlayer 🇷🇴☦️ (@NewPlayer9845) reported

    @Jebus3211 @vaccoin I clearly said how vaccoin works and it doesnt weaponise overwatch as a direct ban The AI anti cheat may not be trusted by the everyday player but big games have already implement it and there were no issues with it atm

  • Jebus3211 71st Jebus | Jebus 7 (@Jebus3211) reported

    @NewPlayer9845 @vaccoin Weaponising overwatch is a problem, that simple. I also never denied that people were doing it, I was arguing that I don't trust an Ai to always get it right.

  • sunrxse aubrey (@sunrxse) reported

    overwatch twt users are so ******* annoying LMFAOOO yall have the shittiest takes & then talk down to anyone who disagrees. sounds like a skill issue to me

  • kelsey_762 𝚔𝚎𝚕𝚜𝚎𝚢 𝚁𝚘𝚋𝚒𝚗𝚜𝚘𝚗 (@kelsey_762) reported

  • yonsofficial memphrica (@yonsofficial) reported

    my week days are pretty much making music and joking with teenagers, then joking with my fam over dinner and some entertainment, reading or watching something lowkey pretentious, then Overwatch until i crash at 2 am
