  • TeaLovingBeauty Coconut And Akeno (@TeaLovingBeauty) reported

    @MeneIwen @overwatchleague Did you just try to compare a race related issue to a joke tweet about overwatch player power ranking placements?

  • MuffinsTwinky Twinky.Muffins (@MuffinsTwinky) reported

    @overwatchleague @Soembie @TMobile Does anyone has the same problem? i watched the the whole steam from overwatch league website signed in, i got the tokens each hour but not the spray. Do i have to wait till the next day to get it?


    @gIorykeks Overwatch is still broken I see

  • Coc_Holliday Coc Holliday 🥃🐓 (@Coc_Holliday) reported

    @samunyann I've had the same problem long ago when I was active on Overwatch. I forgot about it till now. It goes to show they never bothered to fix it. It's tempting to blame Razer for it but I never had that issue with any of the other games I played on my PC.

  • bonniequeue bonnie qu (@bonniequeue) reported

    playing valorant has broken my brain. i'm watching overwatch characters shoot exactly where their crosshairs are placed and thinking "that shouldn't happen"

  • MalekKhelifi24 MAL☰K KH☰LIFI (@MalekKhelifi24) reported

    @maingear Overwatch and War Thunder .. probably Arma 3 .. but my problem is that I don't have PC cleaning tool and we don't have them in Tunisia ..

  • caseyepicstyle Casey 👍 (@caseyepicstyle) reported

    haven’t played overwatch in a while and don’t want to fix my aim might become a flex dps for fun

  • Coc_Holliday Coc Holliday 🥃🐓 (@Coc_Holliday) reported

    I had to uninstall the software for my razer deathadder chroma because it would not let Overwatch start up. It's an older mouse that uses razer synapse 2 and not 3. Apparently the newer ones don't have this problem. Now I'm using a zowie ec1 evo.

  • JuliusMaximus4 ſǝʍls (@JuliusMaximus4) reported

    I really wish there was a good performing shooter on the switch. Overwatch and Apex both have tons of native input lag and it makes them annoying to play 😞

  • Lenxaid The Big Gay (@Lenxaid) reported

    @madruski @Yassuo Hey at least it isn't Overwatch, where they took a completely fun game at launch, and butchered the **** out of it since. League in sub diamond 1 is almost all skill based matchups, nobody is good enough to abuse broken champs. ADC is a rough role for sure, just find a good supp

  • HanazonoAi Val~ (@HanazonoAi) reported

    @TylerFulwood Overwatch is okay for me. I don't actually lag much(?)

  • WinterDragonPSI WinterDragonPSI (@WinterDragonPSI) reported

    Man you know how Overwatch has a problem of no one wants to play healer? Well Paladins apparently has a problem of no one wants to play Frontline (Tank). I got into a match where I wanted to try out a healer and two other people chose healer after me! 3 Healers!!!

  • Yuno_Tokisaki ♡νσи☆ (@Yuno_Tokisaki) reported

    @BlizzardCS can you please help me with Overwatch error (BC-152)?

  • TranscendentOrb Tranquilimari (@TranscendentOrb) reported

    OWL has completely ruined Overwatch for the average player. Some characters are completely useless on ladder; some characters are completely broken on ladder. And some are just completely ignored entirely (poor Bastion). Overwatch needs to think about the playerbase, not the pros

  • Talbiz00 Talbiz (@Talbiz00) reported

    @DallasFuel @Favor Admittedly it was because I knew who seagull was! I didn't recognise any other names as I wasn't big into competitive overwatch and so made my allegiance there and then, never to be broken!

  • yummines Entry Level Waifu (@yummines) reported

    @Nerfnow There's multiple issues with Overwatch's role queue, but the main one is that a majority of characters in the game fall under it. Reaper, Widowmaker, and Torbijorn are all under the same moniker of "dps".

  • Squishy_Derg Ase 💚🏳️‍⚧️🏳️‍🌈 (@Squishy_Derg) reported

    @RedManedLynx @SekoPanda lots of interesting plot hooks and no development on them because it would risk touching on literally any real world issues and as such alienating possible userbase overwatch's development and its shortcomings scream of skilled staff and **** superiors

  • SailorGhidra Torin (@SailorGhidra) reported

    I’ll play Apex Comp for hours. I’ll play OW Arcade and QP for HOURS. But once I get on OW Comp? disconnect/can’t connect to server/ban/8 hour ban. How in thee **** is it always when I want to play OW comp? ONLY ON OVERWATCH COMPETITIVE DOES THIS HAPPEN TO ME. 🤌🏽😭🤌🏽

  • albedo_gaming_ 소원 (@albedo_gaming_) reported

    literally the only way to redeem overwatch at this point is to ban 2cp entirely and fix the mmr somehow i would also ban hog and bastion and orisa and doomfist and mei and hanzo and ana and brig AND KINGS ROW but nobody would agree so

  • VicinityR6 Vicinity (@VicinityR6) reported

    @ItzUnionJack Love these concepts the only problem is with queue times. For example they split the roles in overwatch so you have to queue a certain role and it killed queue times and it takes forever to find matches even at low ranks.

  • Gravel_OW Gravel (@Gravel_OW) reported

    @DF_Taimou Only had this problem when I played on borderless windowed instead of full screen, works for overwatch, idk if it'd work for valorant

  • yubestie bee (@yubestie) reported

    @jaeminschuu i was playing overwatch 👁👄👁 but noelle would be good bc of the shield if ur having trouble w the water waves

  • gajinkei Kelly Green (@gajinkei) reported

    The problem with allowing players to give other players a rating is this: They will always give you a low rating even if you did well or aren't a healer #overwatch

  • Eski_Boi_ Eski Boi 🕊🔸 (@Eski_Boi_) reported

    @READYBRETT @Tak225Th problem I have with outriders is, I follow the marker on the map and it leads me to a dead end. So frustrating. Umm probbs some MP games, gears 5, Overwatch and check out the new Halo update. Don’t want to jump in any SP as Nier is out next week

  • overwatch_chats Overwatch Chat (@overwatch_chats) reported

    Q: Why does Junkrat have self esteem issues? A: Everyone else under-mines him. #OverwatchJokes #overwatch #winnable

  • JayAyyWhy1 Jay Ayy Why (@JayAyyWhy1) reported

    the REAL problem with overwatch is that not everyone can sprint ...no i didnt lose all of my sleep darts trying to run away as Ana why would you think that

  • OP_Amqerica_ OP_Amqerica_HPE (@OP_Amqerica_) reported

    @BlizzardCS Are Overwatch servers having problems right now? There's a huge spike in ping and I just had a whole Competitive match cancelled because of it disconnecting everyone.
