    My problem with actually buying games is not the price (I mean aside from Season Passes which can *******) but the fact that I'm just going to play it for an hour and play Overwatch anyway.

    @AswynnNew @DulcetRefrain The *FLAWED* and horrific competitive mode might be flat lining the game. That doesn’t mean you should scrap the mode completely because it is basically single handily kept overwatch not completely dead. It means you should fix the mode

    @evendimly Make sure Overwatch uses your dedicated Gpu instead of the CPUs integrated graphics card. If that's not the issue check further into your graphic's card settings from software errors like outdated drivers to hardware errors like non registered hardware to general issues

    Verdict: They can fix what's wrong, all it takes is a patch. Because, Treyarch, you need to get your identity back. Stop trying to impress the 9-year-olds, just be you boo. Let Fortnite be Fortnite and let Overwatch be Overwatch. Be Black Ops!

    @BlizzardCS Been experiencing lag spikes on overwatch since the winter wonderland update came out, my internet seems to run fine on other games and it only happens on overwatch, thought it might get resolved after some time but seems not, lot of ping spikes in general throughout the day

    People who go into Overwatch Competitive purposely to throw are so ******* awful and I wish @PlayOverwatch would do more to take care of them. I see the same few people I’ve reported over and over again... Still going in and throwing. For the love of god PLEASE fix this.

  • polyneutron
    Viktor Vorsin (@polyneutron) reported

    The game isn't THAT 'dead' yet, so it's not an issue of a low playerbase, no. It's an issue of lazy devs pulling nobrainer matchmaking shit coupled with Overwatch trend-ish hero abilities outta their asses, that's what it is. Quite a shameful chapter in #Quake history, honestly.

    just midnite (@midnitewolfy) reported

    When it comes to overwatch the biggest issue with the game is not really separating what's competitive and what's casual gameplay . Casual is qp but it's also where you go to throw, practice, goof off, etc . Comp is where no one will tolerate you being human. Win or be hated.

    The problem with too many gamers even the semi adult and adult ones is many are big babies. Some of the worst are at high ranks. Suddenly they have to work to win and they pull out their entitlement whine card. #Overwatch

    2018 was a terrible year for Blizzard. The Diablo fiasco, WoW and Overwatch problems and now the Heroes of the Storm situation. Next year will be very important for them and i can't say i'm optimistic...

  • streamlabs
    Streamlabs (@streamlabs) reported

    @bordershock You would open Blizzard Launcher and click on Overwatch, there you will see an Options button. Click that and click Scan & Repair. If that has no effect, perhaps reinstalling the webcam drivers could help. If the issue persists you should contact Blizzard support.

  • bordershock
    eskea 🐍 (@bordershock) reported

    @streamlabs Already did that, took forever to do. As soon as I start up Overwatch, my webcam loses it's general settings. The game is doing something to my webcam. I have no issues with it on other games.

    Right now the problem is everything is punishable (ala counterable) except for a six person group moving as one. Ana’s Biotic Grenade should be a good counter except DVa can just eat it. #Overwatch
