Overwatch Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • WickedGood Steve Lubitz (@WickedGood) reported

    @SuperiorDavidHS @ZeddyHS @PlayHearthstone The problem with that is that kind of rewrite takes a really long time, and usually it means not releasing a lot of new content in the meantime because you have to develop that all twice. Overwatch has been in stasis for 2 years doing that. TES Legends did that and the game died.

  • Naito_Shade Naito-kun (@Naito_Shade) reported

    So I was removed from the OW match for inactivity despite the fact I was actively moving and trying to catch up to my team. Another fail on Blizzard's current record. Let's change character names pointlessly and glitch idle timers. GGs #Overwatch

  • Potty_OW Potty (@Potty_OW) reported

    Stream Crash 2 Play Overwatch Take a break Stream Crash 2 Play Overwatch Die Repeat

  • OWAnonymous_ Overwatch Anonymous (@OWAnonymous_) reported

    The overwatch devs made junkrat unbalancable. His whole “thing” is not having to aim but he does such high damage that he kinda seems like a crutch for bad players. If they nerf him hes trash but they buff him hes broken at almost any level below gm


    Overwatch is the only live service I can bring myself to play nowadays and thats only since I can play with 3-5 friends consistently, I wonder how the hell I managed to play Destiny so much back in the day

  • Lockski1 Colin Deckert (@Lockski1) reported

    It's actually incredible to me that, amidst all the issues at Blizzard right now, the biggest thing driving me away from Blizzard games lately has been its playerbase. Large amount of trash people playing WoW and anyone who talks about Overwatch online are just as bad.

  • SporkyOW Spork (Check Pinned!) (@SporkyOW) reported

    see my main problem with Overwatch is that its Overwatch

  • razormain420 avery 🃏 (@razormain420) reported

    how much can i pay someoen to fix my xbox. never thought id say this but i miss overwatch

  • SkyeLentNight Blackwatch Spooky 🖤💀🎃 (@SkyeLentNight) reported

    I once again remind people to respect the name change of our cowboy in Overwatch. It sounded like they went through hell to do it and even if it’s a small piece to a big issue, be glad it happened. Don’t be a jerk #Overwatch #ColeCassidy

  • JakeHelios JakeHelios (@JakeHelios) reported

    CHANGES: Tonight Overwatch due to Tech Issues Thursday will be EVENING stream. 8pm presumably.

  • tex_aruni_main Tex (@tex_aruni_main) reported

    @CTZNr6 While we are at it, they also gotta fix the fact that the last 3 bots on protect hostage get stuck in spawn or some random corner of the map sometimes and you can't even runout to kill them because 'eNeMy oVeRwaTcH'

  • Nayvadiuss_ Elijah (@Nayvadiuss_) reported

    @BlizzardCS Having a problem where overwatch is crashing when I go to search for a game. Are you guys experiencing outages rn??

  • soppeyy soppy (@soppeyy) reported

    the Overwatch smurfing issue is out of control on console, how is anybody supposed to rank up or know their actual rank if a 10 year old genji one trick who has made 3 accounts, plays one hero and becomes toxic when things are not going their way? FIX IT #overwatch

  • septi_002 harrowhark epic soup moments (@septi_002) reported

    @thewickedavatar Very interesting setting and lore, has great feeling gameplay but with the most bare bones attempt at an MMO and an infuriating UI. At the end of the day it's got a very similar problem to what Overwatch's lore has but like, for gameplay experience.

  • ow_six69 SIX (@ow_six69) reported

    @discord 2 times this morning so far in a call on desktop PC overwatch app (not browser), Discord crashes, and just keeps spinning trying to connect. Problem on Discord's end :( My phone app works though....

  • maracuy_4 moosay // CHECK 📌 (@maracuy_4) reported

    @stygianymph i only find it stupid because they give insane buffs and the chances are actual garbage for even common costumes, coming from like overwatch where skins are purely cosmetic and some can only be gotten through events, the buff is the only real issue

  • SkeletonBro91 SkeleBrother (@SkeletonBro91) reported

    @PlayOverwatch Overwatch be putting in the effort to fix the situation like my comp teams try to win

  • starblind1988 husky havock (@starblind1988) reported

    @LordBlkRamen @Real_VideoGAG @PlayStation Actually I screwed Sony off for the first time in 20 odd years and sold my ps5 cause the store double charged me for overwatch and they wouldn’t give me my money back **** customer service

  • Oneeyuri_ Big sister 💮🌺 (@Oneeyuri_) reported

    I can't wait for Overwatch 2 to stop active development after one year of service because the developers started full force on Overwatch 3

  • _LOBOTOMYtv LOBOTOMY (@_LOBOTOMYtv) reported

    @_dault @Yakiniku_Party Overwatch does it right. Controller support but no aim assist. If you don't support controller that's a big accessibility issue since some people literally need to use it. It would also be fine to have aim assist literally as strong as they want if we had separate matchmaking

  • formutou Tobi 🍑🌙 (@formutou) reported

    I want to get overwatch to work while i’m streaming but i don’t know how to fix the lag problem 😩😭

  • Zanyard_ CC | Zanyard (@Zanyard_) reported

    @og_mungo the problem is, hes not hovering 50 percent. He has the LOWEST WINRATE. if the most picked dps hero has the lowest winrate in all of overwatch, then theres an issue. It means hes not able to counter properly

  • babyxmoth babyxmoth (@babyxmoth) reported

    @Blizzard_Ent @PlayOverwatch fix your game!!! I lost 50 sr because an “unexpected server error”. I loaded back into overwatch and now it won’t let me join back game while my friends continue to play in the same game. Your game is dying. Fix it so you won’t lose more players

  • ivydupler Poison Ivy Dupler ☠️🌿 (@ivydupler) reported from Brooklyn, New York

    And it’s definitely an issue specifically with Steam games, because I tested it out with Overwatch just now on stream and that popped up right away. All I get is a black screen (no window at all) with Steam games though.

  • OBSESS_LLC TrekWrangler 🔞☢☣🌈 (@OBSESS_LLC) reported

    Anatomy of #Overwatch 4v4DM - join group - watch as DPS fails miserably - leave when opposing team gets 10 kill advantage If I have to switch to Bastion to carry the team, I'm not the problem

  • Mattsa_64 Dylan (feeling like a Toon gorilla) 🌻 (@Mattsa_64) reported

    @eurogamer Damn new overwatch trailer dropping soon maybe some crash news

  • FearlessFPS Eric (@FearlessFPS) reported

    @TweetsKendra @XboxGamePassUK I know, but I wish I didn't have to get a subscription service at all. I paid $60 for Overwatch but I can't play it unless I get a annual bill for a subscription :/

  • ThePhantomLex PhantomLex (@ThePhantomLex) reported

    I love when people use Overwatch to cope, now don't get me wrong, I fully understand if you're having a difficult time in life but taking it out on random people online instead of trying to get better mentally or deal with your problems.. I'll be there to make you feel worse.

  • riott_rabbit cassie (@riott_rabbit) reported

    @Nina9900o overwatch lag is terrible anyways…need to reinstall it soon i miss playing. will reinstall for cassidy’s coming out day tho
