spook-ie (@polarwarmth) reported
@BlizzardCS every single time I go to update overwatch i get the 840 error, is there any fix to this?
Steuernachzahlung 🕷 (@Netzeinhorn) reported
There is "how to stop tilting in Overwatch" guides on youtube and I'm o.O? If this is a problem you probably shouldn't play, just saying...
Shinitai (@42taichan) reported
@YuinoSery Now he plays Overwatch and I've to wait because if I try one more time to fix it, I might shove the Switch up his ass in rage.
Bayleigh Harrison (@TheBayleighAnn) reported
@ParkerCopeland8 @TheBrodRoad @gameinformer It was a joke. Some games may have an issue. Games like overwatch, SOW, battlefield, and COD, you’re earning weapons and loot that’s useless
Garth Ghoulden (@Valshen) reported
Why does overwatch have such a leaver problem? Playing Junkenstein's Revenge and Ana player s just keep leaving.
Gaming Radar101 (@GamingRadar101) reported
@Brandon_Y_Lee Mine works fine..? Although windows did crash my computer while I was playing overwatch because "I needed to restart my computer to update"
Chill Naga (@ChillNaga) reported
@Morltha @JimSterling Base GTA works fine, balanced, no issues there. GTAO Mts not an issue to me. Overwatch MTs are benign non-p2w low quality bad.
Paul Devine (@iampauldevine) reported
@Narull i pretty much know Blizz CFn to a tea, however AU is bad atm, i have enterprise issues with same problem, I just happen to play overwatch :)
刘海兴 (@louisliuhx) reported
@BlizzardCS overwatch au server down pls fix it
Chill Naga (@ChillNaga) reported
@CheapyD @JimSterling Why are you defending a company getting unearned cash ?_?. Overwatch contributes to the problem. 'Others are worse' is not a good look.
giygasblues (@giygasblues) reported
pretty sure gfx card is dead. comp would crash with overwatch, then another higher end game. then crash with no game.
Alexander Wu (@SupaPandaWu) reported
@BlizzardCSEU_EN I can’t go online on the desktop app and can’t login on Overwatch

@comiXology what happened to #Overwatch comics. No update in a while. Then you jumpped from issue 10 to 14. Where's issues 11 to 13?
School of Movies (@SchoolOfMovies) reported
@MrFlabyo @combinehunter @XavierFoxShandi Is it OK to hate lootboxes and the nature of how they are pushed and still not have that much of a problem with Overwatch?
Chris Limbago (@CLimbago) reported
@XboxSupport my son is trying to play Overwatch but cannot login and “I account has been banned or suspended login error LS-403” comes up

Creepy🎃Critter (@CritterFarm) reported
I think my biggest problem with Overwatch's design, especially after seeing stuff from the artbook, they played everything too safe.
Vivifurian (@YangTheFox) reported
I was doing AMAZING as Zarya and I was like doing the works foe my team and then Overwatch closef because of an "error". Then the game just restarted. I'm...........sad.

Overwatch and Mr. Terrific. Make that a show and fix #Arrow. I don't hate either of those characters, it would just be nice.
🐈🐙🐈🐙 (@ThatEmperor) reported

ᵯ⌀×ỵ (@m0xyOW) reported
playing overwatch and trying to win with a broken mic is actually impossible and so tilting.
scary felix 🎃 (@feraligtr) reported from McDowall, Queensland
did overwatch actually fix the lootboxes or was that just jeff kaplan’s ultimate lie
م. عمر الانصاري (@alansari_q81) reported
@BlizzardCS My OverWatch game is not working since the last me Maintenance on PS4, it still tells me I need to update, but there isn’t one on my Not.Sec
jamison junkenstein (@MlMlKYUS) reported
I'm tempted to just uninstall overwatch and see if it fixes these problem bc this sucks
jamison junkenstein (@MlMlKYUS) reported
ugh can overwatch stop being so broken these fucking fps drops along with th audio distortion is making this shit impossible
Spikà★ (@Spika94) reported
There was a few issues here and there, but it was for the most part balanced. Right now, Overwatch is a fucking mess of a game.
A$AP Cord (@CordaRico) reported
Got back on overwatch. Mercy is broken. Nice.
Fisci25 (@FiscusPj) reported
Never mind I guess, Dead by Daylight is having an error so I'll stream Overwatch instead maybe?
Camper (@bronsonj19) reported
@PlayOverwatch but there's a huge divide that's keeping me from being able to make the impossible climb out of the rank. #Overwatch #problem
analman249 (@l1nk1tweet) reported
can blizzard fix fucking overwatch for once? the game is trash rn
Anthony Andrews (@zenabiz) reported
@BlizzardCSEU_EN keep getting "error starting game" when trying to enter comp on overwatch. anything up with the servers?
BEE | Mels (@supernintenho) reported
@J1tails the biggest issue is the one that are pay 2 win, but overwatch is fine since like they don't matter
Trash baby (@xMandarintea) reported
Overwatch needs go fix their POTG algorithm, why show me killing a Widow and a Barrage double kill instead of the full triple kill?
k (@krazyfrog) reported
@BlizzardCS Lag in Overwatch on PC has been terrible for weeks. Maintenance has fixed nothing. People keep complaining. When will you fix?
slime witch (@cetaillefer) reported
been thinking a lot about the star wars battlefront design and how something similar could be adapted to overwatch to fix the "mercy problem
Bk Blindside (@jlgarr86) reported
@melkor2301 @zBrusco @BitesizeK @shadow_sb @oShfty @BungieHelp I have no problems with content or replay ability in other games I play :/ Overwatch has nearly no content whatsoever yet it's steady.
Darth_OW (@darth_ow) reported
A huge problem in overwatch right now is that people think support heroes must have a main healing ability.
AquamAnder (@AnderWriter) reported
Games will be moving towards a game as service model instead, something more like Destiny or Overwatch. I wouldn't expect many new games
ｎａｔｅ (@ya_boii_victor) reported
FUCKING PLAYED WITH A CONSTANT 300MS ON CSGO AND 500MS ON OVERWATCH AND NOW I CANT EVEN LOG INTO GTA ONLINE!!! THANKS PLDT! QUALITY SERVICE!
Joseph Sanchez (@Krashy) reported
Oversimplified: Whats wrong with Overwatch esports? "Biggest problem I have with it is the lack of mechanical skill needed to play the game"
Brenton Poke (@BrentonPoke) reported
@BlizzardCS No, I wanted to talk about support characters during an overwatch tournament. Fix your twitch channels.
PlatinumPengwin (@PlatinumPengwin) reported
@DanStapleton I agree, but if i point to a few that are important to me and they have issues, its bad. That said, titanfall 2 used dlc and cosmetic microtransactions in the best way possible. If every game was like that, id be good with it. Even overwatch had lootboxes, but cosmetic only.
oopsie spoopsies 🎃 (@danguhhh) reported
I’ve never had any problems with my connection playing Overwatch on PC and of course I end up losing internet in one of my comp games -.-
Jeremy Ramos (JP) (@trekerdude) reported
I have raged uninstall #Overwatch for the 2nd time. I think this might be it, I might actually stop playing this game. Matchmaking is broken
Tom 🚀 (@MajorTomHD) reported
@Beth_Robyn_West @ZIRICOCHETIZ Buy overwatch, be a mercy main and then you'll see. My service record is still very good. If I figure out how to take screenshots you'll see
Ibrahim.Youssef (@ebrahim1youssef) reported
@PlayOverwatch good morning I have problem in overwatch I can't play the game because they said I'm banned or blocked for no reason
Daniel Floyd (@EC_DanielFloyd) reported
@Sodakick It's less a popularity issue than a profit potential one I suspect. Lots of well-received SP games out there, but few earning like Overwatch
JMynce™ (@JMynceTM) reported
@AMD When is the Overwatch crash and stability issue going to be finally addressed? So many patches and still not resolved! #gaming #AMD
yuhang✌ (@yuhanggg98) reported
@BlizzardCS That server connection is lost. Restarted overwatch and blizzard app multiple times, nothing seems to be solving the issue 2/2
Benjamin Skub (@BiGGTofflemire) reported
@BlizzardCS A friend's Overwatch (PC version) freezes whenever she tries to save some highlights (not all). Known issue, or enough details?
SeaTakeMe (@SeaTakeMe) reported
@pixelsombra Overwatch is way too toxic all of Blizzards games are, when you get called a cunt for not healing someone enough as Mercy there's a problem
Riley Browne (@RileyBrowne6) reported
@BlizzardCS @cuteblueeyes73 Can I get some steps for how to fix my overwatch if that’s possible
Ossete Games (@OsseteGames) reported
...But last time it happened I entered #Overwatch forum and found that many other people is having the same issue and it's not the ISP.
Roger Wong (@lunarboy) reported
@BlizzardCS Overwatch is not working for me on PS4. Says to update the app to use the network features, but I don't see an update avail.

Overwatch where the issue is always coordination. If something is going wrong and you're doing shit, blame coordination.
