    @TheGldDragon I don't think it's a problem of the people making the expansions so much as something to do with process. Like, it seems Blizz diverts resources to some new IP periodically and short-changes WoW. The only one I can point to off the top of my head was Overwatch and WoD.

    @Hasbro I sent you a DM about an issue I have with the Overwatch Ultimates figures. Let me know if there is anything that can be done.

  • Pastatrvsh Sleepy (@Pastatrvsh) reported

    @AaronOW_ @MercedesFPS @SamitoFPS @NatesonOfficial @PlayOverwatch Mid to high diamond, look me up on any overwatch platform. I’d say you’re probably anywhere from gold to low plat if killing a support is still an issue for you.

  • StaySeeJ08 StaySeeJ08 (@StaySeeJ08) reported

    @LiamAvis1 Thats a good batch of games eh! When did you first decide to start streaming. I main Dbd currently but play anything from overwatch to spyro and crash and stardew valley too! Haha

  • Trish18597272 Trish (@Trish18597272) reported

    Idk why but when I’m playing Overwatch (only Overwatch) I can’t hear the characters talking I can only hear the background music how do I fix it @BlizzardCS @PlayOverwatch

  • beeflessburger 🍔🦔 (@beeflessburger) reported

    Ain’t it crazy how y’all just be playing broken, unfair games like league or overwatch when good games are already out

  • joeparlock Joe Parlock (@joeparlock) reported

    @SamMGreer @jaffameister @schillingc A big problem with solarpunk/hopepunk/positive-in-general-punk stuff is it's hard to make stories for them because they lean towards a lack of conflict, but it's totally possible. Overwatch has solarpunk elements for example.

  • AdamFurmanek Furm (@AdamFurmanek) reported

    @DavisVasky @fjdmslw @hyperboliclogic @LogikalReazon @drdisrespect You mean dying Apex, R6 which was dead for years and only now is getting some attention, tf2 never had competitive mod So nobody cares and Overwatch is dead and every better player is crying for complete rework of the entire game because it is just not working

  • AngelKittentv AngelKittenGaming (@AngelKittentv) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent you seriously need to fix the way overwatch competetive treats accidental wifie disconnects. Not my fault Rogers sucks and had an outage twice today

  • SEGAJENESlS rat bastard (@SEGAJENESlS) reported

    us, stupid: fix your game overwatch, big brain: [releases workshop] No U

  • Chalklate_Rain TJ (@Chalklate_Rain) reported

    Honestly when role queue happens for #overwatch I'm not even gonna bat an eye for anyone that complains about wait times. You were part of the problem and why we had to have this forced upon everyone. Sorry you were too selfish to fill so people didn't solo tank/heal.

  • Lunetoiles_ Lunetoiles (@Lunetoiles_) reported

    I can't believe I'm running up against problems in overwatch because I can't set lambda capture value. I'm sorry for turning into an overwatch and programming twitter all the sudden i'll get back to ff14 and kids anime soon

  • calangaeaf_ alexia (@calangaeaf_) reported

    i love when im lagging in overwatch and my ping decides to drop after the game is over why me bro

  • Lum_Swezny Bharles Cabbage (@Lum_Swezny) reported

    In my absence, Overwatch's matchmaking service did not get any better

  • d1rtyhooves Princess Pine (@d1rtyhooves) reported

    Overwatch like wont run rn. Lagging too bad to do anything. Idk why.

  • Car1onduty Carl On Duty (@Car1onduty) reported

    I love Overwatch, I always have. But, @PlayOverwatch needs to fix its ranked system more than ever. I’m a decently good player, mid gold/low plat. I’ve TANKED to silver after 10 matches with leavers and throwers in the past 24 hours. INCREASE BANS FOR LEAVING. PLEASE. 24hr min.

  • LotusEater__ sick in the head™ (@LotusEater__) reported

    Wow. Overwatch is so boring Blizzard literally just said “well you fix it then”

  • pixie_punch Kristal Babich (@pixie_punch) reported

    Am I being told that my lack of decorations is a problem. Or is my overwatch thirst this obvious.

  • USofChiky Chiky 🐥 Heartless Orisa ♟💔 // #SaveODAAT (@USofChiky) reported

    Hey @PlayOverwatch @Blizzard_Ent please don’t fix Clown Junkrat’s bug 😭 It’s quite enjoyable #Overwatch

  • ArthurTheRanger 张璺天 (@ArthurTheRanger) reported

    @BlizzardCS Hi, my account was hacked, but i cannot use the methods on the official site because it always tells me that my phone cannot receive messages. I could prove if needed. I can sign in my account now, but my overwatch got banned by the hacker, and my name was changed.

  • pinkd1amond jess 🌈 / tommorow! (@pinkd1amond) reported

    ok let's see if overwatch will actually run without lagging today

  • NyanZak_ Nyan (@NyanZak_) reported

    While the Overwatch 'Workshop' is a good addition this should of been what custom games were in the first place. I'll give it a week till the hype dies. A map editor and an actual workshop for skins/emotes ect would have been better. At the end of the day they need to fix comp.

  • fear_the_fairy Ruth✨ (@fear_the_fairy) reported

    @MemeQueenTwitch I only just started streaming but I mainly stream KH and Overwatch. Most of the issues I face are mainly on Twitter (since I've been on here a lot longer) and I constantly feel like I don't get taken as serious as some of the guys on here. Like even some of my friends feel... (1)

  • vexifq Vexifq (@vexifq) reported

    @PlayOverwatch @XboxSupport overwatch keeps on crashing and it's not just happening to me, *************** fix your game

  • AliasTitanium Titanium Alias (@AliasTitanium) reported

    @KristallineGem And there's my problem. I played Overwatch with a competitive mindset, because that's how I got the most enjoyment out of the game. I played Overwatch because of Mercy, and that was taken from me by the rework.

  • JoseStitch1123 jose pichardo (@JoseStitch1123) reported

    Damn it. Competitive #overwatch is and still is a complete broken piece of shit mode. **** man. I am tired of pennies for rank, which I dont care for and the one penny for a win if you're lucky to get on. I have 9K in gold, let me buy the weapons!!!

  • Keylan2547 Keylan Sonnier (@Keylan2547) reported

    Wait a minute. I can make Roadhog 1.0 like the glory days and make him an actually viable character, broken hook and original damage values with the new Overwatch Workshop. Pogu

  • NotLeeeroy Paulo (@NotLeeeroy) reported

    @siegeperry @PlayOverwatch Dude i feel like the core game will die because of this. We asked to fix it but blizzard was like "No you fix it" and thats how overwatch workshop is born.

  • Kattronix Right snickle (@Kattronix) reported

    Overwatch players: tells blizzard about some of the problems with the game. Old and new. Stupid and legitimate. Everything alike in hopes they fix it Blizzard: you ******* make it then if you're so god damn smart.

  • MatthewGuz Matthew Guzdial (@MatthewGuz) reported

    @AlexAshpool @mtrc You can read through the original thread where I unpack these issues. My issue is not with users consenting to use this tool but that Blizzard gains value for Overwatch without compensation to the mod authors.

  • knightstlkr 🌵🌸 Liz 🌸🌵 (@knightstlkr) reported

    Don’t throw servers are down for maintenance errors at me, Overwatch, that was an hour long and done last night. Liar~

  • Ji_kai_ Jikai - MIKU END OR RIOT (@Ji_kai_) reported

    @thehacker098 @DigiDriver The main problem I have with the second design is there's no difference compared to Joker's design. Let's take a look at Overwatch. They make the shillouette of each hero distinct so you can tell who it is just from a glance. It's kinda the same with P5 no PT have the same design

  • Becky2belt BeckyTheMan (@Becky2belt) reported

    Have overwatch gone downhill . Yea it had . Guys we can fix the game right pepelaugh

  • DelphoxyBot Rad Delphox Bot (@DelphoxyBot) reported

    My anger issues are unbelievably still in the closet and I rub the peanut butter on my ***** and let the dog lick the fact that most of the characters in Overwatch probably aren't gay.

  • ZarokkTV Jérôme 'Zarokk' S. (@ZarokkTV) reported

    @PixelWitcher He's toxic but he's also a really good player, he got toxic cause people are ******* braindead/boosted or OTP &shits. So even if I don't excuse him, I understand why. And there is the problem of Overwatch.

  • xd_ake iFear Snusho (@xd_ake) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent fix ur matchmaking for overwatch. its so ******* annoying

  • PixelWitcher Abyx (@PixelWitcher) reported

    The Overwatch problem : this guy is a well known thrower, he's even proud to post shit like that, guess what guys, he's muted.

  • XekeDeath Xeke (@XekeDeath) reported

    @DireDwarf Mostly ones to speed up the repetitive parts, and some convenience ones live evac/overwatch all. Some voice packs, and cosmetic ones I kinda regret because they caused some visual issues. And the M3 Tactical Helmet and Mobile Infantry flag. I'll discord a list.

  • Petting_Sinon Cinnamon YuuTouko (@Petting_Sinon) reported

    HOLY SHIT I don't know what happened but my rubber banding issues in overwatch are pretty much gone! Interpolation delay was sitting at like 150ms but now it's back to the normal 20ms

  • Fanggari_Wolf Crawling in my Crawl (@Fanggari_Wolf) reported

    @PlayOverwatch You gotta fix overwatch! Blizzard: no u

  • JoanieGames J ØAN ||-// We Are All NED (@JoanieGames) reported

    @Ask_Spectrum bro not another internet outage 😫 This is mama’s Overwatch time 😂😂😂

  • EngzietyOW Engziety (@EngzietyOW) reported

    @LilSc4m @MindsweeperOW @Arenzhix Toxic AF. It's just Overwatch buddy. Just a video game. I'm sure that $100 tier 2 tournament payout is what keeps you surviving, but don't be a **** about it. And I'm sure @McDonalds can help you out getting your poor ass some work if it's really that much of a problem.

  • scentacle The Best Ana In The World (@scentacle) reported

    deadass the overwatch team just got tired of listening to ppl whine abt the game being broken and pulled a “no u”

  • HoshizoraOCE Hoshizora (@HoshizoraOCE) reported

    Overwatch players: please fixed Ranked Blizzard: fix it yourself

  • bryansilva745 Bryan Silva (@bryansilva745) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent I don’t want to be disrespectful nor problems, but I’ve decided that I’m quitting Overwatch Competitive. I can’t deal with players who are too good at shooting at me. I’m not happy about the new Hero’s buffs and nerfs. I can’t do any right.

  • JDat99 JDat (@JDat99) reported

    If blizzard let us run our own dedicated servers, I'm 99% sure it would be possible to have a service like ESEA or FACEIT in Overwatch. Similar to how they work in CSGO

  • tyznik Michael Tyznik 🏳️‍🌈 (@tyznik) reported

    @BlizzardCS Trying to log onto the Overwatch PTR Feedback forum. The first attempt, I put in my password and was emailed a 2FA code. After I entered the code I got the error. Now as soon as I put in my email+pass in any browser (incl. incognito) I get the same error, no prompt for 2FA.

  • syberbolt Syberbolt (@syberbolt) reported

    I'll be checking out the Overwatch Workshop update when it goes live. One project I had years ago when I first started the channel, was to "fix" Overwatch - or at least make it the way I think it should be. I'll be looking into this and most likely making a video soon.

  • aaidin Aidin Azarkerdar (@aaidin) reported

    When @Blizzard_Ent and it's overwatch team cannot fix a game they destroyed year by year and now they make it like a minecraft and they want people make their own version of game. Seriously Overwatch becoming a joke.

  • tomie_ow tomie 🌤 (@tomie_ow) reported

    Custom servers when the update hits: - it’s Overwatch but with no Brigitte - Overwatch but with no new heroes - Overwatch but we nerfed brings passive heal which is all we really needed to do to fix GOATS - Overwatch but it’s playable (no brig) - WE DELETED BRIG (standard 6v6)

  • yulstaeng 💫 (@yulstaeng) reported

    both of my sisters are constantly on Netflix or some other streaming service that make it literally impossible for anyone else to use the internet when they are home, I just want to play one round of overwatch without disconnecting :/

  • Kinjakou Kinjakou (@Kinjakou) reported

    Overwatch community be like hello fix game please. Then developers be like nah you can

  • Rory__Walker 🏴‍☠️Turning Point Ravnica, (Original Flavor) (@Rory__Walker) reported

    @NightinGem @CelticAnarchy @yourcompanionAI @NoraReed People are already, as far as I can tell, constantly suppressing their horniness for the Overwatch characters as it is. The problem only comes in when their horniness is actually detrimental to the people forced to play with them.

  • caravanmalice Emily Rose🔜SEA (@caravanmalice) reported

    another thing is, I have less of an issue with this concept existing in MMOs than I do in overwatch, because overwatch is *notoriously* toxic space (where matchmaking is used because it makes things easier to sell to you, rather than making the space safer for everyone)

  • XxRemixVibezxX Remix🧸🍕🥺 (@XxRemixVibezxX) reported

    Ur right overwatch is fun but when u get called a hard stuck bronze when u were still learning how to play says a lot about a person especially when they we so toxic they got bannned on there main so they make a smurf then threaten people with the word ddos like someone scared

  • LurkingTruth Jefferson Arfin Brown (@LurkingTruth) reported

    @iiNexius @Ruvin__ @OverwatchTXT Whether you think exclusives are good or bad m or not is totally up to a matter of opinion in the end. The problem here is every Overwatch Blizzcon exclusive skin is eventually released to everyone as far as I know. So, don't buy a ticket expecting otherwise at this point.

  • daniec1610 Daniel Escobar (@daniec1610) reported

    So, now my PC overwatch problem is lag :/
