    Boosting and smurfing is a huge problem in overwatch and it's not being addressed at all. How many times have you seen a lvl.25 dps-main duo with somebody who was hardstuck plat for 6 seasons but is suddenly masters with a 60+% winrate and is/are now ruining our games...

    I love when I disconnect from an Overwatch comp game because my internet hiccuped, I rejoin the game and someone is talking shit about me "quitting" before I could explain myself and apologize. Yet... I was the only healer, there was 3 tanks and 2 DPS. (all were terrible, LUL)

    MY FINAL OF THE CONTRA RETURN CHARACTER DESIGNS: 6/10 There's some good stuff here, don't get me wrong, but so many characters look super Overwatch like, and need I bring up the problem with all the girl characters? But hey, what did I expect from a China F2P Mobile game?

    Fix your fucking game... like seriously, Brigette shouldn’t exist, the fact that out of 10 shots at least 3 will no reg is fucking bullshit, like why am I still trying with OverWatch when I get placed with absolute morons who fucking suck at the game... like seriously I’m done

    @OdorikoChousen_ 🇲🇽I haven’t had a problem yet. Then again, I haven’t uploaded anything since Overwatch & Dead by Daylight. I HAVE had problems playing online in general. Constant error codes, DOA5LR being shit with the rooms & matchups and MHW not letting my roommate make a room.

    @MattStreacker @YT_John_ @FacilityBreach I would hardly blame the shitty community on people like Limmy. At least he understands the game is bad for him. Overwatch is renowned for having a godawful toxic community, much like League and other overly competitive games. People who defend it mercilessly are the issue.

    @Nayrixx I could easily cash in 15 hours in a day (I'm p sure I did that w overwatch at first). I think when it gets to a point you're neglecting yourself and others around you and responsibilities, that's when it becomes an actual issue and having been around that I know how it can be.

    @dutweets Your home internet connection used to be so much superior to @etisalat up until about 6 months or so ago, what happened guys?... now you have higher latency, voice chat in games like overwatch is broken, and seems to be bandwidth chokes on some routes (esp. europe?)

    That problem isn’t the disorder it’s the people who came up with the disorder. We were all fine until you came along. Hell take pubg and Overwatch with you. Taking Overwatch might help with cancer.

    @Anklespankin There's a lack of action, and when it happens, it can be really short lived. As you say, more fun to play than to watch, although I don't think they are that fun to play either. Another person mentioned Overwatch, and I think that game has another issue. Respawns, lack of tension

    @BlizzardCS It's wireless but it hardly ever has issues, I checked speed between tries and it was completely normal. How often?... It usually always happens when there's something going on like a Background Update within Overwatch's Launcher or the Schedule Maintenance thingy

    Overwatch ranked is a joke. 6 tank players on one team vs the perfect comp, 4 games in a row. Maybe fix the game and you might get your playerbase back? @PlayOverwatch

    My only big problem with lots of upset runs in Overwatch: Critical changes in either maps/match formats/patches before big games. If we could get these things out of the way, then we would be able to fully appreciate the upsets.

    But u know, now that I won't be focused on overwatch so much I'll have more time for variety gaming. And I can stream them cuz for some reason obs would crash overwatch every time I tried to stream so I got a lot of wasted content which made me feel shitty. I hate wasting content

    @AyyItsTaco @eraserhhead Yeah. I don't know I don't play Overwatch anymore outside of collecting skins and watching OWL so my words don't mean much. I just say what I see. I'll come back when Sym 3.0 drops and we get role selection. Games in a broken state and I don't hate myself to much to solo queue

    Overwatch has really turned to garbage. Not an ounce of skill or intelligence needed to be any good at the game. Way to ruin the game, can’t wait for that sym nerf lmao. Please stop trying to fix the game.

    ERASERHEAD | 💐 WIN ALL MIGHT! (@eraserhhead) reported

    I just think it's weird when people try to diminish the problems of Overwatch spoken from people who literally just want to enjoy the game, but suddenly their opinion is invalidated bc they're not GM. I was in Master's once upon a time and ? It's just more fucking toxic dude.

    All that grinding... 7 wins in a row For my PlayStation to crash... For those who don't know Overwatch is based off Skill rating (SR) and if you leave mid match you get -50 SR And it's not easy winning games That's about 3-4 games worth of Wins. FML great way to end the stream.

    @kathryn010475 @unitlostgaming You probably don't actually flow competitive overwatch. Plus, it's not like SHD doesn't have money. For the dragons it's more of a communication and coaching issue than it is a talent issue.

    Okay, the same thing happened to overwatch. Usually when the fight starts, around 20s when the doors are open. The thing is, I'm fine playing any other games, like gw2. Somehow just Blizzard games, in particular, have the problem. Guh
