    @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.

    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.

    @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.

    @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.

    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

    @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

    @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

    @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???

    @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?

    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.

    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.

    @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

    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.

    @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

  • LustfulMaker
    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.

  • epicnewo
    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

    @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
    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)

    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
