    @Blizzard_Ent @PlayOverwatch Eesh. Tried playing Overwatch again for the second time on a free play weekend, on my Xbox One X this time. The input lag is absolutely atrocious. Thrown into a game in progress, on team getting annihilated, deleted the game 2 minutes later. SMH

    @MochaKoffee The problem was the enemy team wasn’t shooting at them, but they were murdering the rest of us. It was fine in TF2 with 12 player teams. It sucks in overwatch with 6 player teams.

    Overwatch is actually a broken game at this point. They keep making the stupidest changes. Buff Mei? ...why??? I’m rapidly losing faith in the game and it’s continually becoming more and more unfun. But there’s basically nothing else out there for good group games so RIP

    I played Overwatch til 4am my time and I mostly played Mercy. As a support main, she's really broken but I will not stop playing her. She's still fun, I just need to get used to the changes they did to her.

    @PlayOverwatch please fix your matchmaking in comp overwatch. Every time I get into or 1 game away from the next tier I’m placed with players that refuse to switch or just bad at the game. This is becoming a problem for me.

    @XboxSupport Ok, to provide an update... I restarted Overwatch and got the boxes but the error is still in the game itself. I also purchased boxes for her. She restarted and still waiting for her boxes.

    The Win 2 can run Overwatch natively, not as good as a PC but that is something the Switch doesn't have. Bigger problem with the GPD Win 2 is it won't have as much support as Switch or Vita cuz GPD is a smaller company but some folks can live with that

    Nothing is more detrimental to the ranked community than one trick dps mains who refuse to swap. Getting placed on a team with 5 of them is the most depressing and discouraging thing. It's the only reason I ever want to quit Overwatch and I wish there was a fix for it.

    Is #Overwatch worth playing. My son has had nothing but problems with the ps4 version. I was thinking about this for a future game for him IF I buy him a gamer computer.

    @YourOverwatchYT The Smurf problem is absolutely terrible. On PS4, so long as you have a PS+ account, you can create an infinite amount of Smurf accounts without having to buy overwatch again, nor pay the online fee again. It's literally free

    @YourOverwatchYT 1. People using mkb 2. Not being able to use any PTR 3. Huge Toxicity issue (still feels like console reports aren‘t considered by Blizzard) 4. Most of the time you feel like Blizzard forget about/don‘t care about console overwatch (almost no hero adjustments for console only)

    Kazu (@applesplz) reported

    @AshleyUncia It really depends on the game. Overwatch? Generally okay. WoW? I'm fine. UT? Nausea within 30 minutes GW1? Blinding headache, puking within 15 minutes. GW2? General discomfort. Contrast is a problem for me, I think. I enjoy FF14, but can't separate FG/BG = headachey.

  • HoroBurr

    @BlizzardCS Any known issues with lag on Overwatch on PS4? It’s been fine for weeks but has suddenly been awful since the free weekend started w/ lots of rubber banding. I’ve reset things, checked ports are being forwarded, etc but the problem persists with other games being fine

    Amy ❄❄❄ (@a_s_forrest) reported

    @AskPS_UK Yeah I have tried and now it's having issues installing the game. It has crashed and then gone back to the beginning. I have checked for a software update on the ps4 but thats up to date. My overwatch update won't install either but my internet connection is fine.

    Overwatch competitive play is so awful with the current meta of Bastion/Torbjorn hiding behind an Orisa shield as she proceeds to place a new one every few seconds as the recharge time on them is broken. Sick.

    @honoka4ever @elinchikaa2 @Kane40_Be tbf not only mobile, rhythm or even idol games are effected. Even PC FPS like Overwatch used to have cheaters. It’s the malfunction people I guess.. Don’t beat yourself up over the issue just acknowledge it.

  • rohmanstrees
    Matt Rohman (@rohmanstrees) reported

    @Fancierwolf Definatly not. I was sat upright playing Overwatch. However, I'm in my PJ's and it's possible my penis flopped out. That'd cause a 4.9 earthquake no problem.

    I find that that the biggest usability issue in Overwatch is when the four MVP candidates are made up of 3 from the winning team and 1 from the losing team; the one is at a serious advantage from a psychology standpoint.

    @PrestonsBurner @MrMuselk But the problem is Overwatch is also losing popularity and affection so eventually we would get bored of both Overwatch and Fortnite. Then we would start asking for new content to Elliot. But I guess it's up to Elliot he plays what he wants to play

    DeMii💕 | Matt (@DeMiiOW) reported

    Honestly with me reforming I can see so many problems with overwatch’s toxic environment in competitive from people being toxic over not talking about the game to getting shit talked by others and sometimes your team because of the hero you main

    I have had Overwatch crash on me more times in the past 2 days than in the year+ I've owned it. Now I'm getting a penalty for leaving the game early. Awesome. You know, I wouldn't leave if it didn't crash with no log. Just saying.
