  • im_yawa yawa. (@im_yawa) reported

    It would be so sick if @Blizzard_Ent would respond to my support tickets so I can get access back to my overwatch account for the new season just would be so cool if they like responded to it and like helped fix the issue

  • Maple_QB Maple Hatenashi 🥕🃏 (@Maple_QB) reported

    @HERO__VT Same problem overwatch has now that they're locking heroes behind a battlepass

  • YukisPanda Yuki (Yukiverse) (@YukisPanda) reported

    *tries to shiny hunt in Violet* Has a miserable time and gets fed up with the insane lag I was getting. *tries competitive Mystery Heroes in Overwatch instead* Encounters a new glitch in which no character models loaded in, so I couldn't see anyone. Bad day today...

  • MonadoJoJo 《☆-Mona-☆》 (@MonadoJoJo) reported

    Overwatch players are actually the whinest most pathetic community ever sometimes. They love to whine about non-issues but then when Blizzard adds/changes the thing they were whining about they WHINE MORE. This was Overwatch 1, little less definitely in 2.

  • NegevVT Negev | Warlock PNGTuber (@NegevVT) reported

    Making my return to twitch in 2 hours! Hopefully no more problems with obs. New overwatch season comes out tomorrow so we will be saying goodbye to it

  • cesaar201 Cesaar201 (@cesaar201) reported

    My overwatch account gets banned from comp play bc I lag out sometimes and the matches end before I can rejoin. Yet they put ppl in my games who constantly throw and harass ppl and they don’t get banned

  • akaichxrry cherry (@akaichxrry) reported

    anybody else get that glitch where you don't see the kill cam and then you switch heroes and don't have to wait for the respawn timer to go down? #overwatch2 #Overwatch

  • texturedghost Tex 🔆🍄 (@texturedghost) reported

    is it overwatch if the game isn’t broken at the beginning of each season?

  • crumbean_tv Crumb (@crumbean_tv) reported

    i know im dogshit at Overwatch but holy **** tanks are so broken

  • MostSaneEver LIFE ENJOYER (@MostSaneEver) reported

    If they put Sol Badguy (the flame of corruption) in overwatch I think it would solve a lot of problems in the game

  • faustohell FaustoXIII🔞 Slots(6/6) (@faustohell) reported

    I remember when in Overwatch there were stars on characters, which means the difficulty of playing. And Mei had 3, the maximum difficulty. WHAT ******** OVERWATCH?! WERE YOU SMOKED OR HAD A BRAIN PROBLEM?!

  • MrsGeekyLatina Mystic Geek (@MrsGeekyLatina) reported

    @5uscat @jjjjosh8 @PlayOverwatch Not a bro. And I'm sure you weren't a master from day one. The biggest issue I see in the Overwatch community is higher ranks trashing lower ranks as if they never started from the bottom.

  • transjunkrat junkrat enthusiast (@transjunkrat) reported

    @hytusk it actually runs surprisingly well! not much lag unless there’s a toooon of **** going on. the worst thing abt it is that it crashes every like 1/50 games without warning but idk that’s kinda just console overwatch in gen LOL also yep! i also play with gyro/motion controls LOL

  • KayneTheBurr KayneTheBurr (@KayneTheBurr) reported

    @Benjjjyy Cannot be bothered to partake in ritual playlists anymore since I moved to get my pvp fix from overwatch so guess I’m forever 6 now lol

  • ayyBailey Jason 👾☄️ (@ayyBailey) reported

    @EtherealValpira @Bearhuggerus The game I can fall back on changes. Yesterday it was Holocure But some other games in the past have been Binding of Isaac, league, overwatch, Crash Bandicoot

  • fartlor45713129 fart lord (@fartlor45713129) reported

    @ooMOOMANoo im getting high input lag on my second monitor + overwatch feels like its 60fps when im on 200+. I googled it and it said it could be a psu problem

  • MlTSUBlN jodie/glare 🪲🍒 MISS CHERRY!!! 🩷💚 (@MlTSUBlN) reported

    sorry for overwatch posting but whenever i see people say moira needs nerfs it’s like…..i’m sorry that’s genuinely just a skill issue

  • im_yawa yawa. (@im_yawa) reported

    support ticket customer service systems the most annoying thing in the world fr I just wanted to play some overwatch before my grave shift later but this is now way over complicated and I’m sad

  • CecilFarengrove Artorias' elite (@CecilFarengrove) reported

    @FroggerOW @b0gur I know overwatch 2 has problems, partially being monetary...but I enjoy the combat more now than OW1. Except I can't use my main much anymore.

  • wongtonfui wOngtonfui (@wongtonfui) reported

    Spending today fixing some video issues I keep having in Overwatch on my gaming pc. If anyone has any suggestions or in-game settings they could share that would help a ton! I'm very clueless about computers all I do is click the mouse

  • JerromyNolting jerromy nolting (@JerromyNolting) reported

    @liathedoll @PlayOverwatch theres a reason to fear brigitte. Brig almost ended overwatch an there would of not been a overwatch 2 if they didn't fix it. you ever have to play 1 meta for years or you wont rank up at all. everyday the same meta for years with 0 fun. you kids all way's wanting the hard way

  • iiDMartinez Ares | Martinez 🌐 (@iiDMartinez) reported

    not only we had issues with apex we had issues with overwatch too but thank you muffone for the games we sent it over to @weaselFbby grinding apex rank

  • ashlynn_gs Ashlynn GS (@ashlynn_gs) reported

    @OWAnonymous_ Overwatch has a problem with toxic elitism, I've seen. Its perfectly fine to get upset with someone within a comp match for playing poorly or not switching when a hero absolutely isn't working, I'll grant that. Where it gets toxic though is when the sweaty comp players join 1/?

  • Formula_Orange louie (taylor's version) (@Formula_Orange) reported

    it wouldnt be overwatch 2 patch day without bugs and servers not working

  • MPasilis kurjun (@MPasilis) reported

  • wafhuw shah (@wafhuw) reported
