    I was hoping to enjoy a nice day of playing Overwatch... Too bad @GetSpectrum fucked that up for me. This is the third or fourth outage in the last week. Get your shit together. It's not like we're in a place covered in snow. All it did was rain today.

    @AskPlayStation Hi, we are having problems receiving a purchase of Overwatch winter loot boxes, and are wondering how to receive them or at least get a refund.

  • Nero_Jamess
    Nero "James" 🐶 (@Nero_Jamess) reported

    After having been away from Overwatch for months, it's sad to see some of it's problems haven't been fixed. It's still very cruel with loot boxes and unfair for solo players who get stuck bearing the brunt of the game's short comings.

    @LiveWirezGamer @RimsandGrins420 Wtf you talking about? I enjoy Legend of Zelda, Mario Odyssey, Persona 5, Overwatch, Rise of the Tomb Raider, and other such. My problem here is that I don’t see a reason to EVER buy a 1x. Not long ago you claimed that Sea of Thieves was an Xbox exclusive, but it’s also on PC.

    Harrison Allen🎄 (@Sir_Squid) reported

    Ever since the latest Windows 10 update, my computer has been randomly restarting itself, and it's even happened while in a game of competitive Overwatch. Once it does, I get about ten minutes of loading before I can use my computer again. Anyone have any ideas to find fix?

  • LegendaryFoetus

    @PlayOverwatch @Blizzard_ANZ I’ve disconnected from multiple overwatch competitive games, but have rejoined every game. Yet I have been banned for 8 hours! Is there any way you can fix this?

    "It's quick play" is not an excuse to throw or refuse to work as a team. If you've ever said "it's just quick play," you're a part of the problem. #Overwatch

  • cloutpipe
    🎄Christmas Meme🎄 (@cloutpipe) reported from Munford, Tennessee

    Hot take: @Blizzard_Ent should implement a banning system like league of legends in competitive mode on overwatch. They’re constantly talking about trying to fix the problem of people one tricking and that could help

  • roojie90

    @BlizzardCS this few days, me and my friend keep getting random disconnect from server while playing overwatch... last week i get random dc from diablo3... so i play other game like dota2, pubg i didnt get any random dc from other game..

  • gloomishroom
    ☃Princess Gloomi☃ (@gloomishroom) reported

    I think i acrually fixed overwatch now, i thought i updated my drivers but they were still an old version. The last time i played before the update my game would crash om the first game and show the lost rendering message. And so i went to the website and gor rhe latest one

  • BloodDaughters
    RADI (@BloodDaughters) reported

    How is Ubisoft so incompetent when it comes to connectivity? I usually get 20-30 ping in Overwatch and I dont think is good enough. Although Overwatch biggest problem is its shit balance and poor mechanics, not the netcode.

    Snail (@pookiekin) reported

    @LieutenantEddy Happened to me. :o ended up being the motherboard, replaced the power supply first since it was the cheaper route. Oddly, it only would crash when I got on Overwatch. Hopefully you have better luck than me. :p

  • StarSlay3r
    Ciji Thornton (@StarSlay3r) reported

    @AfRo_SaUcE So, update for ya. I wore the headphones for about 3 hours straight when playing Overwatch tonight and at this point the padding started to flatten so much that it got super uncomfortable and I had to take them off. If you play long sessions, this might be a problem you run into.

    @haiqudzu Apart from obvious shitty matchmaking and lag, there is almost always something i could be doing to win, i think youre right in saying thats super frustrating. I mean, with overwatch even if i knew i fucked up i can still internally blame the team to make myself feel better lmao

  • michidestined
    Michi (@michidestined) reported

    And do you know how annoying lag is when you're trying to grind for Overwatch Winter lootboxes with your crappy 3mb DSL "high speed internet"? How annoying it is to do anything? I can't even check Facebook while gaming online without my internet choking.

    Daniel A Gonzalez (@Xwhats_goodX) reported

    @xsplit I can't stream certain games or levels - they lag my stream terribly. The main one is Heroes of the Storm. Overwatch runs incredibly well. I dont understand what is happening. The same issue happens with PUBG and Egypt level on Golf with Friends.

    @Kiba1132 He can one shot most of the overwatch cast from one right click, obviously zen discord makes it even more broken but it honestly what causes frustration for getting punished for peeking a corner. Hence the junkrat spam issue as well

  • icanhaskirstie
    Kirstie Plumley (@icanhaskirstie) reported

    During Overwatch total mayhem there were two Hanzo's on the opposing team. We tried to see if it was a glitch with the character, that wasn't the case. Gamer tag was: Element0345 @Blizzard_Ent

    Also learnt that I haven’t missed playing Hanzo. I’m a really good Tank player yet I average around 22 SR gained and lose around 27SR. Played Hanzo 3 times. I gained 55 SR losing 22. With +27 -22 +28. Not tanking anymore. #Overwatch #broken

    Festive Gikame 🌐 (@MaskedGikame) reported

    Overwatch, we have a problem. And I hope that you acknowledge that. This isnt going the way it should. As much as I like your game, its getting frustrating in comp whenever this happens, which is sadly quite often

    @BlizzardCS please add a longer time to rejoin the game after you guys just decide to kick me out on Overwatch. It’s so annoying losing 100 sr because of an error in your game. Literally ridiculous.

  • ZHollowayy
    ZH- (@ZHollowayy) reported

    I think the main problem with competitive is that...and this is the phrase I hear so often now but “it’s just not worth it”. Forever losing more SR than what you get back in wins. Why play more when you’re not going to get any higher up the rank. Overwatch comp is a poor show

  • BryanZhu1

    @jagger27 @GeekAndDad My guess, especially given Overwatch, is there are probably issues/bugs they are hitting in Metal.

  • smnstrk
    simon stark (@smnstrk) reported

    @UtubeShadow @FMJBoMB So lets make a compromise and change her ult. See? Easy. The problem is, Blizz doesn't know how to balance the game. Mercy has been OP since the rework, that bitch is literally killing the fun in Overwatch and they don't care. BUT BUT BUT MUH MERCY! (every low rank player)

  • LunaOwlBear
    Gengu Cat (@LunaOwlBear) reported

    @tastyboygenji I think the major issue is that blizzard released a very poor version of their own character design. Were as a fair few months prior this official realise. An actual fan released a better version of Hanzo's skin from the Overwatch comic.

  • Tiigerrlily

    Been thinking a lot about my original today but I really want to finish this #overwatch thing. The problem with creating a fancomic or fanfic in the middle of a story in progress is the occasional wrench in the ointment from the source.

    @LinZ1231 I think it’s a my-Overwatch-specific thing now. :/ I’m on my account on my fiancé’s PS4, and there’s no issue. I’m hoping reinstalling the game will fix whatever the issue is.

    @BlizzardCS hello, it’s been a while since I started having lags when I play overwatch I’m pretty sure it’s not the internet the problem is that I get frozen and can’t walk but I can shoot and do everything but walking and I need to jump every time that happens how to fix this?

    @BlizzardCS So, I had a crash during a competitive game on overwatch and it said "game found, joining game" when I relaunched like I was rejoining. It was 30 seconds without rejoining me, so I canceled, now it says I'm suspended. It's just 8min, but will this be on my record?

  • Bendilin
    Ben Spurr (@Bendilin) reported

    @OldSchoolGamerP The problems I had with Overwatch and how quickly its community declined never happened to me in any other online game, and it's such a rampant issue that I can only blame Blizzard for it. I mean 12 year olds on Xbox Live/Halo were significantly more cooperative than OW players.
