Overwatch Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • maracuy_4 moosay // CHECK 📌 (@maracuy_4) reported

    @stygianymph i only find it stupid because they give insane buffs and the chances are actual garbage for even common costumes, coming from like overwatch where skins are purely cosmetic and some can only be gotten through events, the buff is the only real issue

  • SkeletonBro91 SkeleBrother (@SkeletonBro91) reported

    @PlayOverwatch Overwatch be putting in the effort to fix the situation like my comp teams try to win

  • starblind1988 husky havock (@starblind1988) reported

    @LordBlkRamen @Real_VideoGAG @PlayStation Actually I screwed Sony off for the first time in 20 odd years and sold my ps5 cause the store double charged me for overwatch and they wouldn’t give me my money back **** customer service

  • Oneeyuri_ Big sister 💮🌺 (@Oneeyuri_) reported

    I can't wait for Overwatch 2 to stop active development after one year of service because the developers started full force on Overwatch 3

  • _LOBOTOMYtv LOBOTOMY (@_LOBOTOMYtv) reported

    @_dault @Yakiniku_Party Overwatch does it right. Controller support but no aim assist. If you don't support controller that's a big accessibility issue since some people literally need to use it. It would also be fine to have aim assist literally as strong as they want if we had separate matchmaking

  • formutou Tobi 🍑🌙 (@formutou) reported

    I want to get overwatch to work while i’m streaming but i don’t know how to fix the lag problem 😩😭

  • Zanyard_ CC | Zanyard (@Zanyard_) reported

    @og_mungo the problem is, hes not hovering 50 percent. He has the LOWEST WINRATE. if the most picked dps hero has the lowest winrate in all of overwatch, then theres an issue. It means hes not able to counter properly

  • babyxmoth babyxmoth (@babyxmoth) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent @PlayOverwatch fix your game!!! I lost 50 sr because an “unexpected server error”. I loaded back into overwatch and now it won’t let me join back game while my friends continue to play in the same game. Your game is dying. Fix it so you won’t lose more players

  • ivydupler Poison Ivy Dupler ☠️🌿 (@ivydupler) reported from Brooklyn, New York

    And it’s definitely an issue specifically with Steam games, because I tested it out with Overwatch just now on stream and that popped up right away. All I get is a black screen (no window at all) with Steam games though.

  • OBSESS_LLC TrekWrangler 🔞☢☣🌈 (@OBSESS_LLC) reported

    Anatomy of #Overwatch 4v4DM - join group - watch as DPS fails miserably - leave when opposing team gets 10 kill advantage If I have to switch to Bastion to carry the team, I'm not the problem

  • Mattsa_64 Dylan (feeling like a Toon gorilla) 🌻 (@Mattsa_64) reported

    @eurogamer Damn new overwatch trailer dropping soon maybe some crash news

  • FearlessFPS Eric (@FearlessFPS) reported

    @TweetsKendra @XboxGamePassUK I know, but I wish I didn't have to get a subscription service at all. I paid $60 for Overwatch but I can't play it unless I get a annual bill for a subscription :/

  • ThePhantomLex PhantomLex (@ThePhantomLex) reported

    I love when people use Overwatch to cope, now don't get me wrong, I fully understand if you're having a difficult time in life but taking it out on random people online instead of trying to get better mentally or deal with your problems.. I'll be there to make you feel worse.

  • riott_rabbit cassie (@riott_rabbit) reported

    @Nina9900o overwatch lag is terrible anyways…need to reinstall it soon i miss playing. will reinstall for cassidy’s coming out day tho

  • fullbringdevil DevilBringer (@fullbringdevil) reported

    I hate lag in overwatch you can’t shoot it or out play it. It just happens

  • OmarLop02817350 Omar Lopez (@OmarLop02817350) reported

    @ROLL5R @cristiadu @haloofthoughts Changing the model won't save overwatch watch league. The primary issues of the league stems to Blizzards mishandling of OW1, the effects of Covid on the leagues ability to travel, and the lawsuit which has caused sponsors to pull. Changing the model doesn't solve any of this.

  • TurtSoCal turt (@TurtSoCal) reported

    last night i figured out the fundamental problem for why overwatch isnt fun anymore

  • BHashrate Twitch.tv/BHashrate (@BHashrate) reported

    So can we talk about #Overwatch for a moment, Im beginning to truly hate the game because of "elo". Elo hell is real, getting a group who is around your skill level and wants to play comp is hard. They should offer a PAID COMP SERVICE for the people who want quality.

  • zaluka09 zaluka09 (@zaluka09) reported

    @PlayOverwatch Hello! If it's not a big problem. Can I ask what's gonna happend skins in overwatch 2? Are the skins gonna get redesign too? Thank you if anserwed

  • ZPCIAssassin Thomas (@ZPCIAssassin) reported

    I don't have that much of a problem playing Overwatch on Keyboard and Mouse but the moment I play Call of Duty on it. Major pain immediately

  • itsastrocolton Colton Sheffield (@itsastrocolton) reported

    Love how I try to play Overwatch because I want to revisit a game I had a lot of fun with a few years ago and it literally won’t launch. I’ve spent hours trying every legitimate fix I can find on the internet and still the game simply just doesn’t launch. I don’t understand.

  • rjnedlaw Jonathan Walden (@rjnedlaw) reported

    @SenatorHagerty An obstacle without overwatch, is not an obstacle. We cannot logisicaly overwatch 2000mi. of border wall. That would make it useless. Conversely, the perimeter wall of a beach house can easily be overwatched by our fine secret service agents, making it a viable deterent.

  • AtlantaTheCity 𝐌𝐚𝐭𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐰🎸 (@AtlantaTheCity) reported

    @TheFurcornGuy @TheFunny_mp4 From my experience, the only major issue is an issue that they are fixing in Overwatch 2 which is the fact that there are two tanks, because double shield is way too good and tanks in general are really good. As a tank main I think this is a needed change.

  • EmberTheCatgirl Ember, Catgirl Prime (@EmberTheCatgirl) reported

    @AsheChaxs @HonestBungie How did it impact you, really? I mean, the trials cheater problem was a big one, but they finally fixed it in a much better way than just making new accouts inaccessible (see Overwatch or CoD).

  • Youngbro323 Youngbro ❤️💛💙 | D&P Remake Waiting Room (@Youngbro323) reported

    So I thought I was bugging, but that bar thingy that Overwatch does for when they release new sprays that you earn after playing a certain number of OW games is definitely broken. I'd play Junkenstein modes on it and the number would only go up every 2 or 3 matches

  • LPetloon54 John L. Frenzel (@LPetloon54) reported

    @captsingh so much government overwatch- I'm under a load that came out of Cleveland OH for Yakima WA- problem is- it's supposed to be hauled single level- (it's double decked)- so- I run it low and slow- I'm within 2 hours of delivery- but can't until tomorrow morning- heavy-too-

  • EeveeA_ EeveeA 🧡 VTUBER (@EeveeA_) reported

    Ironic that it's first day of my ideal schedule, but tomorrow no stream. Way too many issues cropping up that I need to deal with and can't put off. I promise a 9AM EDT Overwatch stream on Tuesday though 🧡
