Overwatch Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • starrykatamari Kristabelle💋 (@starrykatamari) reported

    @greasepuppy I would just hope the lag isn’t an issue because damn. Blizz has not come through for me in the past and I was SERIOUS about Overwatch

  • erigom420 kai enjoyer (@erigom420) reported

    Blizzard stop making my overwatch games freeze and crash or I will hex you

  • goingpostale Caitlin (@goingpostale) reported

    I sat down at my computer to mindlessly play Overwatch and spent an hour and a half on chapter revisions instead. @ my brain, excuse me, we have a policy about not working after 7pm!

  • KASSHHMusic Evil Jungle Prince. (@KASSHHMusic) reported

    I think there are a whole **** ton of new overwatch cheats out unless tracers can recall out of sleep? and recall after death after getting hit with a nade at less < 100 hp? interesting. Happens once, lag, happen twice same match.. yeah that's some cheats.

  • YT_crusader MidnightCrusader (@YT_crusader) reported

    I feel bad for full time streamers playing Overwatch day in and day out. Even streamers like Sleepy are getting burnned out which is normal with games you play all the time but it seems to be a big problem with OW. The game is fun but doing it for a job has to be painful.

  • tortillatacko älœn (@tortillatacko) reported

    @BlizzardCS Please fix the ******* ddos problem on xbox I've played 6 games today and as a support player have been dossed 3 times today, giving me an 8 hour ban and have only been able to play one game without someone being kicked. Fix console overwatch this **** isn't fun

  • PewPewToph Zeref Saito ;-;🌈 (@PewPewToph) reported

    Umm @PlayOverwatch instead of catering to your overwatch league players, maybe you should fix your matchmaking system first? I’m sick and tired of going up higher ranked players. This is getting ridiculous. And do something new with your events Too.

  • Mozzy_NE Mozzy (@Mozzy_NE) reported

    I know that it's having its own problems right now, but can anyone get me into Valorant? Been looking at Overwatch again too

  • WulfLarva 🔞Eden Says Abolish All Police🔞 (@WulfLarva) reported

    @ClownPuddlezXx at least yours wasn't a misunderstanding of the design. you can't exactly google "is this game too hard for ME?" I thought Overwatch was an FPS that was more playable with hearing issues than something like Siege, but it is outright unplayable unless you can hear positional audio

  • SaiyanGodSasuke Mark (@SaiyanGodSasuke) reported

    @PNDMustard Problem is Battleborn never really knew what it was or wanted to be. They never discovered a true identity. Ultimately it was dead on arrival due to Overwatch being a similar game releasing less than 2 weeks later but better in everyway.

  • OverwatchVriska Vriska \\ Black Lives Matter \\ ACAB (@OverwatchVriska) reported

    Overwatch eSports now has its second issue this year with rewards for viewership. OWL had shaky Token distribution this entire year, Contenders seems to be having the same issue where some people aren't getting their rewards. So why did OW eSports switch from Twitch to YT again?

  • sldfspectresix Spectre (@sldfspectresix) reported

    @RissMeister I had a HUUUUGE problem buying lootboxes in Overwatch I'm glad I got away from it.

  • JishuaOW jishua (@JishuaOW) reported

    the meta in overwatch right now is actually pretty good. my only concern is that if these experimental changes go through, it would shape the meta back to having certain heroes be much stronger than others. we're trying to fix power creep, not go back to it.

  • kyumoni kyumoni (@kyumoni) reported

    ik this sounds dumb but can you guys consider making a game mode where every hero is playable in their original release state so everyone could be broken in an arcade mode for overwatch 2? @PlayOverwatch @Blizzard_Ent #Overwatch #Overwatch2

  • aainominako Minako 🌙 (@aainominako) reported

    I need to stop playing Overwatch. I don’t swear or have anger issues but after playing Overwatch, I started swearing again (when playing the game only) & easily get mad. If it was free, I’d probably delete it but I bought it so ...

  • Rilgon Rilgon Arcsinh (@Rilgon) reported

    *taps microphone* the problem with the overwatch league and why it has quickly boiled down into a two-to-three contender dynastic morass is that it has entirely too many late-10s Ottawas and not enough early-to-mid-10s Chicagos

  • hal_v69 hal (@hal_v69) reported

    @MoilyJade_ cant imagine having my day ruined by a teenager who probably has mommy issues and spent their entire childhood playing overwatch so they're socially broken apes who take it way too seriously 😔

  • SynfaxedCam ᑢᗩᘻ ᒚᗩᖻ ❼ (@SynfaxedCam) reported

    Pro Overwatch players will get killed by any hero and say that it's broken

  • iamsneaky sneaky (@iamsneaky) reported

    @GamesShed Gonna jump back on overwatch for a bit.... Maybes some crash team racing🤔

  • igor_msant Igor Matheus (@igor_msant) reported

    @guisouzadias RDR 2, Resident Evil 2, Crash N'sane Trilogy, GTA V (não sei se vale), Doom Eternal, Overwatch, Batman Arkham Knight

  • Swishiee Swishiee (@Swishiee) reported

    Other hero shooter style games have given backstory to their characters (like Overwatch), but the game play doesn't really match up with the motivations of the characters. Apex seems to fix that problem, for the most part.

  • DestinyIsMyGame Dylan (@DestinyIsMyGame) reported

    @vicious696 Hopefully storage won’t be too terrible of an issue for the Series S, but it really seems like it will be. Mine’s just going to be a Halo and Overwatch box I think.

  • nineaccel supernine (@nineaccel) reported

    @TwitchSupport can you fix or optimize the soundtrack by twitch, it really strains my CPU even more than Call of Duty or Overwatch

  • RubenkdBITW Ruben_OW (@RubenkdBITW) reported

    @RLRecon @RocketLeague Overwatch servers are pretty good, never had a problem

  • andysphatass nocumchallenge (@andysphatass) reported

    Houston, we have a problem. I’m getting back into overwatch.

  • ManuelPDelgado tu trolo de confianza 😎🏳️‍🌈 (@ManuelPDelgado) reported

    @ursaltysupport Overwatch has* lol Also today I watched over 7 hours of contenders and didn't get any of the Sym skins?? And seems like a lot of people have the same issue and technical support is silent??? Somehow Blizzard keeps finding ways of disappointing me when I'm already disappointed

  • Goldenuggets12 GoldenMonko (@Goldenuggets12) reported

    @mentalmars Well the issue was that they were trying NOT to market against Overwatch in the beginning. They also kept telling people the game was not a moba even though it played like one. Then suddenly it was trying to compete against OW later down the line... it was a confusing process.

  • kevmo314 Kevin Wang (@kevmo314) reported

    @andrewchen Do you play Valorant? I'm LFG 🥺 Although I'm curious how Valorant fits in. Apart from being released in 2020, it's not particularly innovative/more social over Overwatch, csgo, R6? Comp ranks clearly built off League and ELO hell + smurfing is still a big problem.
