@MyNintendoNews Stfu Blizzard. You said a year ago Overwatch wouldn't be on the Switch cause it's too weak now you're creaming your pants at the thought of it at the moment when the Switch becomes very successful. Not to mention your parent comapny's treatment of Crash and Spyro on the system.

So how come the official overwatch channel is allowed to stream on twitch and youtube at the same time? Isn't that breaking the terms of service? I guess youtube are just being bias cunts again and showing just how unfair they are to certain creators on the platform

@HatokTalk @NilkadNaquada @mrfeelswildride @DAIROCKETTO Just from personal experience, there are golds and plats in R6 that play more braindead than silvers and coppers, I presume CSGO has the same problem and I’m pretty sure Overwatch is like this too. Anyone can get to a high rank just by playing.

@BlizzardCS @reijeconiah my gf and i have the same problem right now with overwatch

Oh look. A waste of time for Overwatch to not fix their shitty game
Hαιℓєє Aℓℓєη🌸 (@hailee_allen) reported
I’m literally so done with Overwatch right now. Balance is trash, servers crash randomly, summer game event had like barely any content, social features are heavily lacking. This game is more frustrating than fun to play.
ParaDyme (@_ParaDyme) reported
@BlizzardCS Having issues with exceptionally high pings in Overwatch, yet speedtests tell me my internet is running at very low latency.
Zander (@ZanDork_Bread) reported
The biggest problem with 2018 Overwatch Summer games, there was no new title screen.

Whup. Game server for Overwatch just booted me out of the client. Hoping it was a glitch.
Jimmy (@TheJimmyTopps) reported
Either my ps4 is lagging or alot of people on #Overwatch are lagging

@BlizzardCS when i try and launch overwatch on PC i get an error message that says "sorry we were unable to log you in timeout communicating with blizzard services" please help
RenzOW (@Renz_OW) reported
I wonder when Blizzard will fix the random DC's for Overwatch hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
Colby Kortas (@CKortJester) reported
@BlizzardCS for some reason overwatch cannot hold a game for me for more than 45 seconds. then I lag out and it logs me out. forcing me to close the game before signing back in.
Kaneki Ken (@KenAlpha1) reported
@BlizzardCSEU_EN Hello, I have a problem in Overwatch, in Lucio Ball, the ball's hit detection is somewhat bugged, whenever I sometimes boop the ball with my soundwave, it doesn't register, making it impossible to play in Copa Lucioball, mind fixing that? It's hard to play.

@Blizzard_Ent @BlizzardCS no matter how many times I try to fix parental controls that I DID NOT PUT ON MY ACCOUNT it keeps telling me to do the same damn thing fix your site #blizzard #Customer #service #overwatch #stupid
MisterBriGuy (@Scarangel1O1) reported
I wish I could stream Overwatch a lot more often next to my Lets Playing. Theres just a couple bumps that keeps happening. Like the thought about losing constantly or raging which would make viewers lose interest and the fact that my computer makes it lag almost all the time :c
JMD! (@JMDurden) reported
@stretchdraws My main issue is that the biggest multiplayer games on the planet (LoL, Fortnite, CS:GO, PUBG, TF2, DOTA 2, and Overwatch to name a few) dwarf the reoccurring player bases of any console game, both in short and long term. They're all free. Why do console players NEED to pay?
DrTechMD (@DrTechMD) reported
@Sporttuner25 Problem is League of Legends has 100 Million active Monthly Players while Overwatch has 7 million. For 2 esports with about the same level of difficulty in understanding the sport, makes it hard for any hype to come professionally for OW with such low numbers, They need to go FTP
Peter Gepert (@SquallBH) reported
@Blizzard_Ent Any fixes for Overwatch internet lag yet? most ppl cant play after summer games update (free OW weekent gonna be a failure with this issue aswell)
Isaac ✨ (@_iEverything_) reported
Hey @BlizzardCS ! I’m having an issue redeeming a card code for Overwatch (got it through game stop blue yeti purchase) and it’s saying that I cannot redeem the code

AlphaTANK (@TANKprotocol) reported
overwatch doesnt have a problem does it? i cant wait till a new game comes out and just fucking kills it.
homo, the wolf (@cabbagebrains) reported
@mau5atron yeah, just two games i suddenly can't start up anymore don't think it's OS compatibility because one of them is overwatch which i'm pretty sure works on windows 10 so it has to be a driver issue

EasyModeLetsPlay (@EasyModeLP) reported
@SanderSanity I have many problems with Overwatch and that is only one of them. Like there was such an emphasis on story in the ads and trailers before the game came out, but to get a lot of that you had to find it through external media like comics and videos. Why not story mode???

SiLLY on franchising in CoD: "The lack of amateur events could definitely hurt, but maybe if [Activision] learned a good amount from franchising Overwatch and fix those mistakes and bring it over to CoD, it might actually benefit us." #CWLChamps

@BlizzardCS an overwatch server issue caused me to dc from the game and lose 50 sr. I could tell it was a server issue because my discord call was just fine meaning it was not my WiFi. Main account is DspMatty#1129. Is there any chance I can get that sr back?
Eevuii/Daffila (@Eevuii) reported
Is @PlayOverwatch aware that on PS4 overwatch IG comms are broken to the point that your ears bleed? It’s like everyone is screaming into the mic and blaring BG noise in. Been like this since the update. Can’t play comp because of it.
Atk4May (@Atk_4_May) reported
@PlayOverwatch @Blizzard_Ent hey so me and squad of friends were playing overwatch competitive on xbox. Me and my friend kept getting disconnect when we were caping point. It happened three times and we believe it was the other team doing it. Bc noone else got disconnected!
Ivan (@BlackFire_45) reported
Update: doing Overwatch too much lag on pixelmon server atm

@OcelotKills lmao there was a while where i used my phone to WIRED tether to my PC, and i could play netplay and even overwatch at high ELO without lagging technology is fuckin wild
Lindsay Waterman (@linwat_) reported
@BlizzardCS hey im having some issues with my account connectivity between overwatch and my blizzard account. I have a physical copy of the game but can’t find my game key and there’s a weird account link problem

im so SAD AND ANGRY I CANT ENJOY PLAYING OVERWATCH BC IM LAGGING SO FUCKIGN BAD
Blessed (@_blessedeternal) reported
@AmazonHelp I've already put in tickets, including chat support who assured me that a Twitch support supervisor was going to handle my issue... with disappointing results. My -battletag- has changed. The Overwatch loot boxes have not been claimed because the -battletag- has changed. (Cont)
Kurt Cline (@KurtCline78) reported from Salt Lake City, Utah
Just watched the Finland vs South Korea #overwatchworldcup match from last night. What a hell of a match. Feelsbadman about the disconnect on Finland. #Overwatch #OW
élïjàh (@eeliigaa) reported
With how dominant South Korea already is in eSports, it's gonna be at least 5 years before anyone shuts up about the client crash fiasco of Overwatch World Cup Group Stage 1 in 2018.
owen (@epicnewo) reported
@itsFODDER @ThePhantomLex The point I’m trying to make, and I may be mistaken with overwatch, to make a ‘stream’ proof cheat that the stream doesn’t see; you hook the cheat to an external in game overlay, problem with overwatch, it doesn’t have an overlay like steam. Tho perhaps there are other methods
🎭🏁Mika🎲👑 (@mikazure) reported
why is my wifi lagging so bad, I just want to play overwatch man ;;
〈ＣＬ△ＩＲＥ〉 (@ClaireMP3) reported
Overwatch def has that issue. So many games are just one side or the other always in control. and I guess that's why I don't like it as much anymore from a playing perspective.
Ollie (@SparkyCARAT) reported
@PlayOverwatch @BlizzardCS hi guys, my brother is having issues connecting to the overwatch servers. we play on PS4, and i have no idea what's wrong.

Is the mics still not working on ps4 , why everyone mic sounds loud and broken #overwatch #help #gamers #ps4 #PlayStation #playstationnetwork
Colin: Wielder of the Infinty Gauntlet (@C_Hechta) reported
@tim_utley That has always been an issue with me and Overwatch, they want to be taken seriously with the Esports and the League and all the different media outlets that are involved but then they will let anyone play competitive and when it comes to players who take the game seriously
Chris Desrosiers (@Erkenhelm) reported
I think I am going to take tonight off from stream. Gotta work on setting up new notifications and research the game lag issue I'm having with Overwatch. I'll stream at some point tomorrow.
Widowmaker (@LustfulMaker) reported
@quitepacific @Blizzard_Ent @BlizzardCS @overwatch @ChrisMetzen -has become less popular and has angered most of its original players (like myself) to not play. I just mostly play rainbow six siege and other campaign games. This game has so many issues I am not even going to dwell on.
owen (@epicnewo) reported
@ThePhantomLex Problem is with overwatch, it doesn’t actually have any overlays, the only overlay I can think of would be GeForce experience but that runs at 1fps meaning your game would be limited to 1fps, so I’m unsure about stream proof cheats in ow. The guy could just be looking @ killfeed
🇨🇦 GLA/VAL Takemikazuch 🇨🇦 (@TakemikazuchAIE) reported
Anyone else but me having issues with trying to get in all the Blizzard stuff as much as possible? With Overwatch Summer Games event, new Hearthstone and WoW expansions on my limited time off schedule, I can’t find time to do any of these things without neglecting the other!

There are 3 types of people gaming on PC rn 1. The people on the BfA hypetrain 2. The people ok the MHW hypetrain (rip connection issues) 3. The people who are hyperdedicated to one game and somehow never get bored (league/overwatch/fortnite)
Tawm / Tom 🎮 #I63 (@MajorTomHD) reported
Did a test last night, after having severe lag on overwatch. Checked the xbox version and it was fine. Checked Dead by Daylight on PS and it was fine, checked Rocket league and ive got some lag. like wtf is going on.

Overwatch servers crash on competitive games? Don't they play locally? I don't watch owl so idk

If south Korea go on to win this game because the overwatch world cup tech crew can't handle an issue that happens when Korea are on the back foot and its in Korea that is just complete bull
With Hiro (@WithxHiro) reported
Paladins a very good game and a perfect rival of overwatch but still There are so many bugs in paladins yes they release patches as soon as possible but still the problems exist. Like battle pass challenge bug , sometimes game sound stuck at a certain point and etc. @PaladinsGame

New Mercy feels like shit Like Shift is slow as balls Tanks take Lucio time to heal Rez is still overpowered but feels awful to use Ult is awkward and unengaging Come on #Overwatch fix this
Alexander Chappell (@XanderChappell) reported
@PlayOverwatch Honestly console Overwatch has a huge smurfing problem. I cant find a game without a person refusing to change according to the team comp, feeding, and throwing games. Its really making the game not fun to play.
Yakfrost @ the cosgala 🌟 (@yakfrost) reported
@kanstelar @aliz0rah Yeah I agree, at least they didn't delete comments and defend the cosplayer, this might mean they've learned something (although them being a popular Overwatch cosplay hub for a couple of years now makes me surprised to find out they didn't know it was an issue)
Rico Muerte (@rico_muerte) reported
just joking about team Palestine. To field a team of that calibre, you'd probably need regular and uninterrupted electricity, which i hear is a real problem out there. Transnistria has more problems then overwatch, that i understand
Joe Cavers 🏳️🌈 (@joecaversaudio) reported
Internet is half-working on my PC. Loads some pages, sometimes doesn’t. Opens Overwatch (to the menu), but can’t connect to a game server. Laptop + WiFi is working. Anyone had this kind of problem before?
James Michael Blake (@IncognitoRFG) reported
So, Since @Blizzard_Ent's support line couldn't help me with my issue and told me I needed to contact the Dev's at overwatch. Here it is. Your new "purchase" all features is bullshit. I just wanted all my currency purchasing skins I didnt. Fix this for me. @PlayOverwatch
