  • Chico_Dust_E Chico (@Chico_Dust_E) reported

    @AskPlayStation Hey your webpage that says all services are up and running is freaking full of crap. I can't delete messages, join or create a party, and I've been kicked out of every multiplayer game I've tried to join. Dead by daylight, call of duty, overwatch... fix psn!

  • TwiztGG Ollie (@TwiztGG) reported

    @ReasonYoutube @Natesonn @KarQGames @Aspen_OW @YourOverwatchYT @SamitoFPS @TillyTwitch @TeriosGaming @Kephrii @holiwhirl @PVPX_ @Fitzyhere @Metro_OW I didn't watch the video, I agree he should 100% have mentioned it and talked about it. From your sentence "keep pumping out overwatch videos" it made it sound like your problem was with him making videos period. I think this is mostly a misunderstanding.

  • stantmf Beau B (@stantmf) reported

    @VolkeOW He can do so not in overwatch, he has proven himself to not be trusted and letting someone who has abused his power before back in the system is an insult to people who have faced with such an issue before

  • Kyle_365 Kyle (@Kyle_365) reported

    @PlayOverwatch hi blizzard/overwatch Every time I log in overwatch I have a error that causes me to not be able to use comms. Has been happening for a while now pls help

  • roadhogstitties bash (@roadhogstitties) reported

    although good news i didnt lag at all so i guess it's an overwatch thing

  • NashJR96 Ryan Nash (@NashJR96) reported

    @CreamiiBB You know what the Overwatch devs will do to fix it... nerf other players 🤡

  • midnacine Bethany (@midnacine) reported

    Some popular games/series to protest now that Activision Blizzard is canceled: World of Warcraft Overwatch Crash Bandicoot Wolfenstein Skylanders Spyro Guitar Hero Call of Duty Candy Crush Diablo

  • FalexUnknown PhoenixArising (@FalexUnknown) reported

    @TheGameHamster I'm gonna upgrade the power supply, graphics card, RAM, and the processor. And I think it will be where i want it after i do that. I stayed up til 5 am this morning trying out different games on it. It ran Apex Legends , Dauntless, and Overwatch without any issues.

  • RealMightEMouse MightEMouse🔜 TBD (@RealMightEMouse) reported

    Doomfist is the most broken ******* hero in Overwatch. FIX THE ******* GAME AND NERF HIM

  • venuswrgn 🐺𝖂𝖊𝖗𝖊𝖜𝖔𝖑𝖋 𝕻𝖊𝖉𝖗𝖔🐺 (@venuswrgn) reported

    Boku no hero has the same body issues that Overwatch when it comes to female bodies It is exactly the f same issue. Big girls turns skinny legends

  • yebuuma buuma LF cute wink (blue) (@yebuuma) reported

    why is every overwatch player so unhappy all the time abt meta. i am overwatch player too but what would even fix it..... also r we just not getting halloween event

  • Dengekichan 🎃👻𝕯𝖊𝖓𝖌𝖊𝖐𝖎𝖍𝖎𝖒𝖊👻🎃 (@Dengekichan) reported

    @incognico__ It's a shame because overwatch was the only game as a service that wasn't jam packed with money exclusive content

  • XiordS Xiord (@XiordS) reported

    @TheWhisperShot @mkoelemen @Smoken_OW I dont know if its only me but i play overwatch to have fun, not to moan about a hero that isnt broken like moira shes fine. The real problem is doomfist.

  • aSnabbAnanas Axel Holgersson (@aSnabbAnanas) reported

    @TheExoElite8083 @Jerbsinator @sturamnator @Blizzard_Ent Why are you so mad, overwatch isnt as good as it was, it progresses too slowly and updates often cause more problems than it solves

  • pasteldogg 🦇warren🦇 (@pasteldogg) reported

    I wanted to buy overwatch yesterday, and so did my uncle, problem is I'm broke so my uncle bought it for himself and offered to let me play whenever I'm @ his place... Oh well better than nothing

  • STAR2D2_ STAR2D2 👻 (@STAR2D2_) reported

    I just got new glasses today and Overwatch literally looks like a whole different game. I think I found one of my biggest problems reguarding my gameplay...

  • GamingHeroTetsu Tetsuya Hikari@backlog hell 2019 (⁎˃ᆺ˂) (@GamingHeroTetsu) reported

    @frognymph @SoggyGod2 @PrinceSS_SSB2 @GtotheB1 I will answer your question though. Naturally, as a male myself, I've spent MORE time around "cis men", as you put it, than trans women. There's no denying that. Now, having said that, the trans women I DID encounter during my Overwatch days didn't have a problem with it.

  • dylanrj511 dylanrj51 (@dylanrj511) reported

    4v4 is a joke. If mercy is on the other team and revives someone you killed, the kill gets taken away. Blizzard fix that. #Overwatch #blizzard

  • NeKap Neil Kaplan (@NeKap) reported

    If I were and was still not in Overwatch, our bobe, would have a mighty big problem with that. #OhCousinJeff...

  • slayer0799 Zombie (@slayer0799) reported

    When @FortniteGame is unplayable because the game is lagging worse than a windows XP computer trying to run overwatch....fornite for the love of god fix your laggy servers please @Trapt35

  • 1upGaming1up 🎮 Creepy_Gaming🎮 (@1upGaming1up) reported

    As mad as I am with Blizzard I'm not going to do ether instead I'm going to not play their games for a while as them siding with china has Me worried for not just World of Warcraft and Overwatch but Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon as Blizzard is owned by Activision

  • puirtz Felix (@puirtz) reported

    @MisterAntiBully Dont worry theyll be working on a black trans overwatch hero. We all know that will fix it!

  • ATakenUsername3 Nobody (@ATakenUsername3) reported

    @ShiftyArchfey @EENlX @ThedosianC Well, it's not the reason I took that mentality, I just got tired of chasing after people who don't understand team work then blame me for all their problems. It's not my fault you tried to 1v5...******' casual Overwatch.

  • Damage_Mode Doc💉 (@Damage_Mode) reported

    @mischief_more So they stick to their values and the gamers of China never get to play overwatch...Last of us 2,countless other games. The problem here isn’t the game companies it’s China censoring everything. It’s a ****** system but that’s just how it is. (Not that i support blizzard anyways)

  • Primey_ Brian 🎃 (@Primey_) reported

    xQc said he isn't streaming Overwatch because of the whole Blizzard issue which is ******* sad. He should be allowed to stream whatever he wants but you know fine well this trash community will put him on blast if he does stream Overwatch.

  • Tuplet Jayna 「ジェイナ」 (@Tuplet) reported

    @UnknownEnby @jpVari @KaijuFunk @Kafzeil @CaseyExplosion The huge problem is that appeal and attractiveness are two different things. Animation can be ugly but have appeal. Think of the queen in Snow White in her old lady disguise. Appealing but ugly. Or think of some of the ugly characters in Overwatch like Road Hog.

  • GDAnnin Tracy 🌈🎃🍂🦇 (@GDAnnin) reported

    Let me rewrite all of Overwatch. Hand the rights straight to me. I’ll fix it. I’ll make the timeline make sense and make everyone queer. I’ll FIX IT

  • animelytical animelytical (@animelytical) reported

    @Darksoul9669 @NocteDK @BellularGaming @TaliesinEvitel Tali is idealistic, but wrong. And Pride is as off topic as Hong Kong independence in regards to competitive Overwatch. Never had a problem with it, but it just catches Blizz in another lie. This is a new standard that exists *because* they wanted to appease Chinese government

  • RealBenGilbert Ben "Several people are typing..." Gilbert (@RealBenGilbert) reported

    Yes, of course there are Blizzard apologists defending the ongoing very dumb situation. I also really like Overwatch. That doesn't make this a very dumb situation where Blizzard made a mistake then made a half-assed attempt to fix that mistake.

  • JeffMan1490 🎃Spooker JeffTendo👻 (@JeffMan1490) reported

    @ShellshockPrime Welp, looks like sales for Overwatch on Switch will be having problems.

  • Frappelychee Frappelychee (@Frappelychee) reported

    @Jerbsinator @sturamnator @Blizzard_Ent Overwatch is good in the sense that they don't focus purely on graphics & instead on gameplay yet still have good graphics, game mechanics & physics are well polished, it's still getting free updates. One big issue is matchmaking..70% of matches are so one-sided. 1v4 matches 😭

  • minivansocrates kylie webb, but not happy about it (@minivansocrates) reported

    i ******* called it just got on overwatch and support queue time was 9 minutes. theyve broken their own goddamn game, AGAIN

  • waifumochi ⋆˚。WaifuSpooki🎃👻 (@waifumochi) reported

    I feel like an ability that can one shot most heroes rather easily with a huge hitbox that is THAT inconsistent and buggy is frustrating to people that play him AND playing against him. The charge time wasn’t an issue. Nobody complained about that but thank you overwatch

  • jukedjuls juls (@jukedjuls) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent hey support hong kong, release the halloween event, and stop being ******* uwuw I am embarassed to be apart of the overwatch community as of recent. please fix things.

  • katszc Kats (@katszc) reported

    @NVIDIAGeForce GTX980Ti for Overwatch (played mostly indie games before so had no need for a good card lul) Still serves me well, though 2 fans are broken, and if the last one breaks... *shudder*, am too poor for this sht.

  • TheHarlanRogers Harlan Rogers (@TheHarlanRogers) reported

    @StaaarFiiish @sjwdebates @mashcore4mums @bronzeswords @chudlogic @L0G1c9UY @Dialoguealways @tardulv @TizzyisTizzy @ClaudiaBrown100 @legndofphoenix The issue is, I feel individuals on the left often have a hard time determining what is and what isn't genuine social justice. It's taken a long time for people to realise Tracer and Soldier 76 in Overwatch being gay was empty corporate pandering for example.

  • HAPPYPE40436350 HAPPY PERSON (@HAPPYPE40436350) reported

    I hope Mei gets deleted from overwatch as a result from all of this. I guess blizzard sucking off China for money explains why she’s the most broken character in the game.

  • korigaming Kall me Koko. (@korigaming) reported

    @jacenat @TaliesinEvitel the very fact that we're seeing these kinds of pride events on english streams all over esports (Overwatch League and LEC for example) is proof that even if there are still many issues, pride itself is not divisive anymore

  • Motivrir Hermit Crab in his shell (@Motivrir) reported

    overwatch is shit and i left hearthstone years ago so no problem for me :/

  • thisjustin2001 thisjustin2001 - SANS IS IN SMASH! WE DID IT! (@thisjustin2001) reported

    @MatttGFX An Overwatch Hero, Crash and Spyro are all still on my list of most wanted characters. Controversy or not, I still love these characters.

  • alcatrazzia Alcatrazzia (@alcatrazzia) reported

    Oh nooo! Was going to play some DbD on the xbox but i guess i cant do that. My bumper to run is kinda broken and its not fun to walk around the maps 😂 So i will play some overwatch instead with a close friend. So my saturday is rescued anyway. 😊

  • WilliamVenomous Big T Larrity (@WilliamVenomous) reported

    The real question here is which Overwatch character does Blizzard make gay in the US, but still straight in China to fix this shit

  • ruby_ebook faker ruby (@ruby_ebook) reported

  • IndiIndecisive pathfinder is a minecraft bee (@IndiIndecisive) reported

    okay minor observation: overwatch, apex, and most of my steam games went from 35-40C to 77-87C once loaded. Fan on graphics card is wobbly, not sure if that's the entire issue for overheating or not.

  • synthesis_ow Jacob McDowell 🌺 Haunting the halls of OW gold 👻 (@synthesis_ow) reported

    Honestly, I’m getting VERY burnt out with playing support in Overwatch. I do my best, but even with BrOkEn-ass Moira, I’m down 300 SR. In the meantime, I’m going to try my hand at Symmetra in comp again. I miss TP’ing into the back line and microwaving people.

  • QuirkOfArtXD Kaylie 👻 BoOoOomer 👻 (@QuirkOfArtXD) reported

    @CKortJester @PlatanoRanger Human rights are pretty big and just because people didn’t care before it effected them personally doesn’t mean the caring is the problem. You can keep playing Overwatch, but understand that you do so because you have the privilege you do. This is a disappointing take.

  • 8BitSlothiness 8BitSloth (@8BitSlothiness) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent Just delete my account and ****. My issue with you goes deeper than this. Overwatch is a complete mess with your fav champs still being OP and the non-pro players being ignored. Diablo 3 was and still is a grindy mess. Diablo: China Edition was a stab in the back, too. Just ****.

  • darkxwave ❤️ (@darkxwave) reported

    the icloud team at apple should all be fired and slapped across the face. if it isn't a server issue on amazon then it's a scripting issue and an overwatch issue that shouldn't even be happening.

  • ffsBrads Brad (@ffsBrads) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent no problem all forgiven, time to reinstall overwatch 😀

  • rokudo tracey ✈️ vietnam (@rokudo) reported

    @podgekinn the articles not great but this is a common error with any new blizz big article that gets posted lol happened w overwatch lore all the time

  • ThatNormalBunny 🐰ThatNormalBunny🐰 (@ThatNormalBunny) reported

    @Wario64 I stopped reading after like the 3rd paragraph. This is nothing but bullshit and they are obviously trying to get some good PR out of this. Spoiler alert for Blizzard it's not working and say goodbye to Overwatch sales in China

  • ashyshort Centori (@ashyshort) reported

    @TaliesinEvitel In Overwatch, a lot of those guys who have broken the rules have gotten that depending on what it was. At least he's getting his money and the casters aren't totally done.
