Overwatch Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:
  • JacePT_ Jace (@JacePT_) reported

    @Briggsycakes I'd assume it's to do with alot of sponsors pulling support from Blizz and therefore Overwatch League Honestly it's all bullshit PR blizz r the big bad but i'm sure these sponsors will pop up again in the industry in time Whilst probs having similar issues themselves. Cringe.

  • sarchysarch Sarchy (@sarchysarch) reported

    I'm not sure what's going on with my laptop, it can't run overwatch anymore and now even Stardew is lagging (regardless if I'm streaming or not) I'm having trouble with the graphics card I think 🥺

  • GuercioSantiago Zen-Nakji Santi (@GuercioSantiago) reported

    @ATPOverwatch The Worst Part of this is the Overwatch's Team Were not participate of this Act. Blizzard's Problem, but Sadly this Game is to them and still Sponsorship them is the same thing that bring money to Blizzard

  • xpvrad XPV (@xpvrad) reported

    Playing overwatch for the first time in a while. Looks like they fixed the ping issues now but messed with aim assist again. Why is my genji turning so slow now?

  • saltkid3 🐸💥salt kid💥🐸 (@saltkid3) reported

    ik overwatch has its problems but jfc ive seen so many posts about it being "worst game in the world >:(((" like stop acting like children and suck it up, not the entire community is as the game/company is. And these are the same people who stan kokichi pls stfu. /lh

  • GodBoneOW GodBone (@GodBoneOW) reported

    so lately, my overwatch has been having major fps drops, almost freezing. any ideas on what i can do to try to fix it?

  • FatHorseGnB FatHorse🇨🇦GAMING&BOUTIQUE🇸🇻 (@FatHorseGnB) reported

    @Kotaku First I stopped playing Overwatch and Hearthstone when I stopped buying randomized MTX Then I stopped buying their games when they added post reviews MTX to Crash racing Then the Blitzchung incident Now this? It's the straw that broke the camel's back. I won't be back

  • WestBrook___ 𝐖𝐞𝐬✞𝐛𝐫𝐨𝐨𝐤 (@WestBrook___) reported

    Ima put random overwatch unpopular opinions I have here: - Baptiste isn't hard to play. - Most, if not all, supports are broken - Soldier and Pharah are two of the most powercrept heroes in the game. - Junkrat is harder than McCree. - Hanzo spam is more anooying than junk spam.

  • JudeMcDude Awesome Left 4 Dead Facts! (@JudeMcDude) reported

    @hanamrunesoberi @RapidPilot2 I mean I’d agree with if CoD, Crash, and Overwatch wasn’t there

  • packetneko packetcat (@packetneko) reported

    @mintmakesthings I started reading this thread and went "yeah this sounds like Overwatch's visual clutter problem" and yeahhh I've been watching Apex streams this week, its getting there

  • jokerluvr Joker ✨ (Pathetic Co-Dependant) (@jokerluvr) reported

    I'm so ready for 5v5 overwatch. One less tank one less problem for me.

  • 8bitdylan Dylan (8Bit) 🏳️‍🌈 (@8bitdylan) reported

    @xpatriciah And I get respecting the wishes of those on strike. The issue is I’ve seen people say one thing “This is terrible, change needs to happen.” then go and purchase $100 worth of lootboxes in Overwatch to get new skins. Your money talks louder than what you say on social media.

  • WearyBunny80197 Jack (@WearyBunny80197) reported

    @secyman990 Its the opposite problem with destiny 2. Launch was so bad and it showed that the devs didn't care but they made a 180 and now the game is at its best place ever. Overwatch devs cared at launch but now they don't give a **** and even deleted a tank role so now tank is even harder

  • sansisgreen sans is a femboy (@sansisgreen) reported

    @alexadom2307 The character isn't the problem it's the player -some gay *** overwatch player

  • LoganOnTheLam Logan. The Plug. (@LoganOnTheLam) reported

    just spent thirty minuets yelling with a friend about his women issues only to end up playing overwatch with more friends. The cycle continues.

  • HLCArcadia DigitalArcadia|CW: Code Geass (@HLCArcadia) reported

    @Zmure_ Welcome to live service games, the gaming community needs to realise that live service games are the ******* WORST. Just look at games that got horrible with more time passing: Rainbow Six Siege, Overwatch, Apex, Fortnight, GTA, For Honor and so on.

  • bindarem bin Darem (@bindarem) reported

    @BlizzardCSEU_EN in game because of server error I was dropped from the overwatch competitive match .. my team win any way but I couldn’t join them because of server error you can watch my match reply S96Z7M Please advise how to report this

  • Thomass98Stone T.Stone (@Thomass98Stone) reported

    @SerratedViper People run off to steam apps to test reflexes against bots. Having it in game is massive. Overwatch had not practice too, yet that wasn’t an issue. Plus if a player DC’s it will be a bot that takes their place till a meeting player connects.

  • RipperImt RIPPER (@RipperImt) reported

    @playVALORANTsa @PlayVALORANT @RiotSupport Fix your game otherwise it is soon going to be just like overwatch 🙏🏻🙏🏻

  • ACMEBricks ACME Brick (@ACMEBricks) reported

    @nxcharlie_ @chrrismale Not a problem haha. Lots of people use it in overwatch. Don't think you can get caught due to it looking like a controller is just plugged in, no cheats or anything.

  • UniversalTurnip Uni (@UniversalTurnip) reported

    @ItsJustDolan @Aramori_OW The overwatch team never had any issues though so idk why you wouldn't

  • 2hufacts Nina (@2hufacts) reported

    @UrbanNightmare_ I think the problem with overwatch is that it was taken too seriously. The goofy and more casual parts of the game got removed cuz blizzard wanted their next big esports scene or whatever

  • CaptAwesomeIRL Gaming’s Most Positive Pillar (@CaptAwesomeIRL) reported

    @rickthedamned The issue that I’m having is the bullying and harassment i get, as well as the negativity surrounding blizzard and it’s lawsuits. Even when I’m not playing Overwatch i still get people sending me hate messages and comments. So being away from it is probably the best thing for me

  • William81901460 William Graham (@William81901460) reported

    verizon is really gonna have to beware if they dont fix my wifi soon, finally in a good mindset to grind some ranked #overwatch and mr verizon wont allow me to

  • RustedHubcap gay weenie (@RustedHubcap) reported

    Some od the guys on overwatch are the same kinds of guys that see amber herd and be like “i can fix her bro”

  • trippytripdrip Waterrrr𖤐 (@trippytripdrip) reported

    @MamoruGyun @TheGrimsy Sooo like Tracer from overwatch basically and the Tempest “ glitch “ from bo3 yeah not a good idea

  • Chaser4Realz Chaser (@Chaser4Realz) reported

    @LeafStorm10 @CrashBandicoot It’s perfectly okay to stop playing Blizzard Games like Overwatch, but what did Crash Bandicoot do aside from not being developed by Blizzard?

  • camaropharaoh E-Solo (@camaropharaoh) reported

    @sassynicole36 I can understand. When I first started playing Halo (dual analog stick FPS) I used to get bad headaches because I could see what I wanted to do but my fingers… And my son whizzes around in Minecraft and even Overwatch; no problems

  • ian_c22 Ian Gouws (@ian_c22) reported

    @ricky05701275 @Blizzard_Ent I concur, customer support is useless, I've discovered a problem in Overwatch which they are COMPLETELY oblivious about. It is the most ridiculous thing in the whole wide world!!!

  • BootlegGirl Dr. Ellie Lockhart, Out of Touch Coastal Ellie (@BootlegGirl) reported from Seattle, Washington

    That said, I think the whole discourse around trans issues means I see fewer female characters in online games played by men, except in cases where they’re premade and not just aesthetic (Overwatch, etc) it used to be a lot more common
