Overwatch Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • Vic_VALORANT Vic (@Vic_VALORANT) reported

    overwatch update summary: Genji is useless again, the classic widow scope glitch has now morphed into a brig-widow combo glitch which makes it way more common and can be game losing, 0 skill tanks still dominate the game and have more impact than any dps. Cool game!

  • OwNacl OW_NaCl (@OwNacl) reported

    @Slasher Overwatch needs to fix their meta asap. Seriously, we are sick of having Brig be a must pick since she was launched.

  • MMoutoo Mouto the Dokkaebi simp (@MMoutoo) reported

    God if only there was SOME kind of way to fix the support and tank queue times in #Overwatch. Maybe if there was an increased number of tanks and supports maybe? Nah that’s totally not the reason

  • Azzie_gengu Azzie (@Azzie_gengu) reported

    Y'all better pop off with this Overwatch 2 release. If the game still suffers from the same issues then, it WILL die. The only thing keeping it afloat right now is the promise of Overwatch 2 and the hope that the game will be better then. The playerbase is already abyssmal

  • notpxlmtree palmtree (@notpxlmtree) reported

    overwatch matchmaking at 4k is so ******* broken

  • MonadoIII sapphire (@MonadoIII) reported

    @FIsre i just gotoffline to play overwatch so i think thats telling of a different problem

  • qCandywingX CandywingX (@qCandywingX) reported

  • h0ld_F_to BBing2 (@h0ld_F_to) reported

    speaking of match cancel, It was a problem in Overwatch called as dodge for a reason and now siege having problem same thing kek

  • The_Hive_311 Leondro V. (@The_Hive_311) reported

    @afflixtions @PlayApex Only lag, if I'm doing better than usual then die, or bad teammates make me mad. Then again it be that way alot on my other games I play too especially overwatch comp

  • _sargeras_ Arthas (@_sargeras_) reported

    @Slasher Cheating in cs go is huge a problem. Imagine you should pay services like Faceit or ESEA for less cheaters. Trustfactor or overwatch or reprots can't do ****. People in higher ranks like supreme are cheating and they stream their cheating and guess what they are not banned yet

  • NetworkVolts VOLTS_GAMING_NETWORK (@NetworkVolts) reported

    Crazy to think i supported someone that sold himself out for Valorant, then goes back to Overwatch and accuses anyone who is better a hacker or stream sniping. as it is if @Kephrii was that good as he says so himself, then the streamsnipers wouldn't be much of an issue lmao.

  • turt1exd Turtle (@turt1exd) reported

    @Slasher people always say that cs:go has a serious cheater issue, but think that we have vac, overwatch, ingame reporting, trust factor, and the new trusted launch option, which can help ban of a majority of them, even though they can make a new account in a matter of minutes

  • twopuffslol two_puffs (@twopuffslol) reported

    revisited overwatch after a year and good to see nothing has changed -- broken characters and toxic chat (in quickplay nonetheless)

  • hauntedchasm gay bird moment (@hauntedchasm) reported

    I feel like a broken record every time I complain about Overwatch, but god damn how did Overwatch manage to be *boring* when watching high-level players? How did it do that!

  • DeathUnbound Dredgen Deaf Ubow (@DeathUnbound) reported

    @J_Bird3131 I think that in Overwatch that's a problem that's really specifically on console, and that's mostly because of the technicalities for how new accounts get set up for licensing. I 100% believe that if Blizzard put a paywall up, you'd have less smurfing even if it still happened.

  • AntiCheatPD Anti-Cheat Police Department 🕵️ (@AntiCheatPD) reported

    Games like Warzone Overwatch CSGO Dota 2 any game that has a user-mode anti-cheat they are entirely defenseless any skid can run a cheat without a problem cheats cost as low as a 10$ key or even 5$ for just a 1-day key

  • alphycade sara (gayest) (@alphycade) reported

    @404_SunNotFound i have an Asus TUF FX505DT, which is ~750 USD i have played valorant on it with no problem, overwatch with only some problems, and dolphin emulating WW randomizer with no problems

  • MEDII7991 Mo (@MEDII7991) reported

    @BlizzardME , please fix your overwatch server (Arab).

  • tom1315123 Tom1315123 (@tom1315123) reported

    @Killakobes360 @AquamarineOW audio in Overwatch is buggy and overwhelming. there’s like a giant mega thread of audio issues that hasn’t been addressed on the forums like ULT lines not playing, abilities not having sound etc. Doomfist rollouts happen so far away that by the sounds barely make noise.

  • ruby_ebook faker ruby (@ruby_ebook) reported

    fix overwatch mmr loss 2k17

  • LoverXiv Aurelia Bloodmoon (@LoverXiv) reported

    @OhHaiiAlice I'm hoping Overwatch 2 fixes a lot of the problems the main game has right now, but IM afraid that its going to die out in a couple of months after release. People just dont seem to care anymore and have moved onto other games like valoran, league etc.

  • viollous Viollous (@viollous) reported

    ******* be like i wanna do something with my life but proceed to login to Overwatch, join a "Looking for pocket 2900+ (Im GM on main) NA ONLY" LFG, and play till 5am with an eboy who won't stop bragging about his 4013 peak to diamonds in teamchat

  • midsseeghosts straightron (ACAB, BLM) (@midsseeghosts) reported

    yep 100% packet loss on overwatch have an issue with my ISP

  • Amarisetsuna #ProtectComet Amari 🔥 6 Days to Setsu Day (@Amarisetsuna) reported

    @SkyGames17YT Yup, Tracer being a teleporter makes her pretty broken if she gets implemented into Smash so I get why you think so! And her playstyle also doesn't fit a fighting game, so I guess if Overwatch gets a rep, it has to be Doomfist

  • frost_is_lost frost (@frost_is_lost) reported

    The problem with barriers in Overwatch rn is that they feel so non-comittal. Look at Rein, has to sacrifice speed, damage, and abilities just to put up his barrier. Now look at Orisa, able to deploy it, shoot, halt, and fortify all from behind hers, while another one charges.

  • ArcStars4Jesus Arc_Stars (@ArcStars4Jesus) reported

    Always wanted to be a pro player. Had a lot of passion for LoL, Overwatch, PUBG, and Apex Legends. Now I can barely stomach any of them. Valorant wouldnt be so bad if every patch didn't cause some sort of new network/fps problem. What to do now. @sme_rt #streamer

  • OhHaiiAlice 🌸Alice🌸 (@OhHaiiAlice) reported

    So why does everyone hate overwatch so much now? Like the characters are interesting and the gameplay isn't bad. The chat can be toxic of course and I understand the issues ppl are having with Blizzard but, besides that I think its a great game & idk where the hate is coming from

  • OwKerro Kerro (@OwKerro) reported

    Let’s say the quality of overwatch ranked matches ranges from 1-10. Whenever you queue for comp it’s like rolling a die. The issue is, you’re rolling a 6 sided die while hoping for a 10

  • mr_chad83 chadders (@mr_chad83) reported

    @Alaaesong @BlizzardCS I've just gone back to overwatch after many months and I can't hear anybody in team chat-says I'm connected but doubt people can here me either. Is this still an issue?

  • KnifedSaber KnifeSaber (@KnifedSaber) reported

    @_zigzagged_ I wouldn't recommend Overwatch FOR NOW, and this is coming from someone who does play and keep up with the game. Really bad balance (game is currently going through a power creep problem), competitive is a mess, and lastly recycled events that bring nothing new to the table. 1/2
