    why are there so many mercy one tricks like omg and why am i getting q with only mercy players when i play mercy like overwatch fix ur shit

  • kcinteractive KC (@kcinteractive) reported

    crashes not want to play comp or even the game itself due to us having problems being punished for having issues and honestly drives me away from this game which is awful because I love overwatch I have played it for so long and enjoy playing it in solo or in groups I love

  • kcinteractive KC (@kcinteractive) reported

    using for almost 3 years now and have had nothing but issue surrounding my overwatch experience with screen blacking connection issues on occasion but the main issue stemming from the "your rendering device has been lost!" and I know that's not your fault and I know that that

  • inkigal Inki (@inkigal) reported

    @peacockjive @RiotMorello CC has little place in that game. The Natascha is frustrating and perhaps overpowered, especially since it's hitscan and it got a stealth buff to its slow. TF2 is not a MOBA, its a high mobility shooter, and that's imo one of the problems overwatch has

  • TKainoa Ty (@TKainoa) reported

    If I could stop ******* lagging everytime I get on Overwatch that'd be great.

  • LanoomAES o.o (@LanoomAES) reported

    Symmetta nerfs needed: LMB damage down to compensate for the beam fix Have her turrets go through teleporter one at a time instead of a simultaneously slowing laser bomb #overwatch

  • realMikeyUK MikeyUK (@realMikeyUK) reported

    Apex Legends has a shitty microtransaction issue going on rn. Overwatch is getting really repetitive and boring. Fortnite has their stupid ******* shitty mechs ruining the game as always. Minecraft is boring to play by yourself. Someome suggest some new games to play. Please.

  • woke_teen_ebook noahbot (@woke_teen_ebook) reported

    monthly login into Overwatch to say a Harambe joke and then out of no where it showed hanekawa in missionary.

  • Amoebic Ouch Potato (@Amoebic) reported

    @ahumblegrumble Yes but I got the shut down problem like with overwatch D:

  • VictorRue2 the closest thing to a background character (@VictorRue2) reported

    Its official the next Overwatch hero is @SkulduggeryPXII he destroys Bastion every time and is the answer to all of Overwatch's problems

  • sic4zombie James Santiago (@sic4zombie) reported

    Symmetra is officially the most broken character ever #Overwatch

  • Zekesingstenor zeke wilbur (@Zekesingstenor) reported

    @PlayOverwatch Fix your damn game. Ever since role select came out I can't find a game as dps. I don't get on Overwatch so I can play healer and tank everyday. Fix your shit

  • Applesgosh Applesgosh (@Applesgosh) reported

    I use cardboard and duct tape to extend my desk size, but today I got mad playing overwatch and destroyed it and now Im just sad. I need to control my anger better. Ive needlessly broken so much shit throughout my life gaming: mice, keyboards, a vr controller, a gameboy advance..

  • TranquilloKitN Cactus Snack (@TranquilloKitN) reported

    Blizzard gotta fix Brigitte. Her kit is so wack right now #Overwatch

  • julcyjohnnyy johnny 🖤 (@julcyjohnnyy) reported

  • juliexygg julie (@juliexygg) reported

    overwatch pls fix sigma :((

  • Pokatopia141 Poka | Officially A College Fur Now! (@Pokatopia141) reported

    So I'm planning on not streaming tonight due the fact that I've encountered a massive error on my stream. Apparently, when I'm in a group game like Overwatch, Fortnite, or GTA, my group have to be in an Xbox party with me in order to have their voices in the stream. >:(

  • rachri_ weed gang (@rachri_) reported

    why have 30+ characters in a game and like 6 of them are seriously broken and literally anything you'll see in a compettitive game. im ******* done with overwatch until jeff fixes his "game"

  • Wuffpaw Skunkpaw (@Wuffpaw) reported

    The Sigma patch on Overwatch is great but my goodness am I having some HUGE lag issues with the game now. It's making playing almost impossible.

  • LaTheHuntress ♡ 𝖍𝖚𝖓𝖙𝖗𝖊𝖘𝖘 ♡ (@LaTheHuntress) reported

    Every time I almost bring myself to play Overwatch I get this issue where I get so full of anxiety because I cannot leave the game if I need to escape or calm down and that really freaks me out and prevents me from playing

  • Peterquill47 ɿ(。・ɜ・)ɾ (@Peterquill47) reported

    Man, this beam tracking fix in Overwatch has turned Mei into a real piece of shit.

  • ChapoTrapDen Morty's Trap House🌹 (@ChapoTrapDen) reported

    @jzayas7 @SamitoFPS i cant believe u think cause u play symm, a brain dead broken hero if there ever was one, and cause u dont see samito play symm... u can tell him about overwatch. when hes a professional and top player. lmao

  • ChapoTrapDen Morty's Trap House🌹 (@ChapoTrapDen) reported

  • Zevo_TV Zevo (@Zevo_TV) reported

  • ashlebunny ♡ ashleigh (@ashlebunny) reported

    overwatch has officially broken me tonight. hasn't happened in a very long time.

  • Cyberpt1000 Cyber1000 (@Cyberpt1000) reported

    Since i had to RMA my mouse before the warranty ran out (wireless issues, fine on usb), which was onhold since i bought it cuz RMA takes 1month+ -_-, wont be able to play overwatch now which is the only game i could still sneak some time to play a match or 2. FeelsBadMan

  • ruby_ebook faker ruby (@ruby_ebook) reported

  • Violet_Voodoo Lukas Corriveau (@Violet_Voodoo) reported

    Role queue= worst idea EVER! You now cannot fix what’s broken... thanks, @PlayOverwatch #Overwatch

  • nottodayys8n . (@nottodayys8n) reported

    It’s 2 AM, I just finished playing overwatch and I’ve almost won 1000 games. Nobody can tell me I don’t have a problem

  • dps_moira czech hunter x hunter (@dps_moira) reported

    symmetra lowkey broken on overwatch with her new beam charge up omg everyone was always disrespecting the queen now the indian miss thing has all the tea

  • BendilinSpurr Punished Bendilin (@BendilinSpurr) reported

    Splatoon suffers from the same issue with Overwatch where if even one person drops out, the match becomes entirely one-sided. But the Splatoon series doesn't have things like overtime or individual punishments for your team performing poorly. It encourages you to keep playing.

  • lewdstar2 lewdstar (@lewdstar2) reported

    @Klyde113 I'll would rather play overwatch over both. They finally fix that damn game.

  • itsKalensLife GameOverz (@itsKalensLife) reported

    @SavvySamuraiGG i get rendering issues apprently because (from what ive read) Overwatch dosnt play nicely with newer GPUs. so i get crashes from time to time, and it strips me of them :(

  • yoruskii aren @ La 図書館 (@yoruskii) reported

    @BlizzardCS waht that isnt the problem i clicked to play competitve then instead i changed my mind and clicked cancel que and then i closed my overwatch and then i re opened it cause i changed my mind again and i saw that i had been suspened for not even entering a game

  • DBs_Best Dragonball’s Best (@DBs_Best) reported

    I’m waiting for him to send me the specs, but I know he runs fortnite, pubg, overwatch and other games on it, so it’s definitely worth more than $200. The issue is I want to buy a laptop for college and I don’t think I’ll be able to afford both of those on top of everything else

  • viiviicat Vivi Langdon 🏳️‍🌈 (@viiviicat) reported

    So far I'm somewhat frustrated with the Role Queue in Overwatch because it still seems to match me up with bad players, as a healer, and then I can't do *that* much to fix things

  • SuperbDonnie ♠️ (@SuperbDonnie) reported

    please fix overwatch. its too much cancer @Blizzard_Ent

  • Al_barquq ▲🌴 آل برقوق🌴▲ (@Al_barquq) reported

    Love how at every update Overwatch becomes unplayable because of the massive lag/framedrop issues you didn't have right before it. 🙃

  • meat Zack (@meat) reported

    the reason everyone wants to play DPS in Overwatch is because they have a far wider choice of damage heroes and all the in-game dopamine hits come from dealing damage/getting elims, not healing or blocking. Role queue is a temporary salve for this problem

  • BanterWipes Renegade (@BanterWipes) reported

    @PlayOverwatch The Orisa shield problem was bad, but sigma’s shield is 10x worse. I can’t play sombra anymore cuz y’all nerfed the bastard. Like fr I’m quitting overwatch till y’all do something about sigma or at least nobody plays him anymore.

  • desulatoryy Desulatoryy (@desulatoryy) reported

    @BlizzardCS Tried again. What you suggested didn't help. I tried uninstalling overwatch and then reinstalling and was met with the same error message. And the files were being scanned despite the game not even being on my computer anymore. If you can help it would be appreciated!

  • _sleba Josh Abels (@_sleba) reported

    @MaFortniteClipz @FortniteGame at least overwatch is trying to fix their game 😂

  • _Falconbox Falconbox (@_Falconbox) reported

    @VG247 problem being when one game is good and the next one is trash, but most of the community moves on to the new game, essentially killing the good game due to lack of players. Meanwhile games like Overwatch and Siege get better with time and GAIN players.

  • Giosndvl Giovanni Sandoval (@Giosndvl) reported

    Overwatch is rigged. I got a quadruple kill and still didn’t get play of the game. Smh #overwatch #broken

  • NAITSIRK_ELO_01 Ole Kristian (@NAITSIRK_ELO_01) reported

    @LayersZero @PlayApex All they did was letting people buy skins for 18$, they did not fix any problems with the fact that playing the game during the event wont give you shit. Make it like Overwatch events where the more you play, the higher the chances for you to get what you want.

  • steviewonder94 Certified Spastic (@steviewonder94) reported

    I am sick of these selfish wankers on Overwatch who pick a role, throw with the trole, spam at the rest of the team then disappear. You call them out on it and they go "ugh y just salty not my problem" WHY ******** ARE YOU PLAYING A TEAM GAME THEN

  • SealandGG Sealand (@SealandGG) reported

    @iamkeeferz ehh blizzard has their problems too. I got banned on Overwatch for a week twice from their automatic system because people report me for 0 reason.. and the Blizzard team just replies with, "Sorry we're going to ignore any replies to this ticket"

  • RahulAnbuKumar Rahul Kumar (@RahulAnbuKumar) reported

    overwatch ranking system is so broken. Literally played 1 game with multiple masters on the enemy team and popped ******** off. Still gets placed plat. Thanks for getting my hopes up Bliz

  • HRETNUH your longtime confidant hunter h (@HRETNUH) reported

    i never played the overwatch tutorial because i tried once when i got it and it just proceeded to crash my whole ps4

  • BurlapCatten BurlapCatten (@BurlapCatten) reported

    Has huge desire to play more Fire Emblem. Just keeps playing Overwatch despite not having role queue QP. Why is my brain broken

  • mulan2324 ♥FaMulanTheFearless♥ (@mulan2324) reported

    @BlizzardCS. I dont know whats wrong with overwatch on xbox 1 but its lagging hard. Ive done all the steps on my side. I think it might be on your side

  • karetluvspopunk twitch.tv/ (@karetluvspopunk) reported

    @BlizzardCS Hi, i would like to report a problem with Overwatch and battle net. I got disconnected and i can't log in to battle net again. My internet is working fine.

  • Crustymustard3 BringBackTiltedTowers (@Crustymustard3) reported

    The overwatch heros are still broken i cant even choose an attacker

  • jordynngroves chibi jo (@jordynngroves) reported

    @BlizzardCS The role queue beta for Overwatch is pretty cool :). The only thing I see as a problem is if teammates want to switch rolls if they’re performing poorly. It would be neat if there was an option to switch rolls between players if needed.

  • MurrRayan Rayan murr (@MurrRayan) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent Hey i was playing overwatch and it kicked me deu too itactivity fix blease or i fiel lawesoot

  • IgorUnAsArt IgorUnas (@IgorUnAsArt) reported

    @PlayOverwatch I have played almost 30 matches but 222 doesn´t fix anything. The entire game is full of people that does´t care about wining or trying to play as a team. It´s a pitty because i love Overwatch. But i will never play competitive again. I'm so sad.
