5,000 players ahead of you


#23

This is pretty common for any sort of big release. It happens to WoW, and it happened to OW literally every time a new event or new hero comes out. This is a given. Just give it some time and don’t ever expect to be instantly queued when new content is dropped.

Acceptance is the first step toward recovery. This should be displayed at all times until the game is balanced. :laughing:


#25

Hammond buff!!! :smile::smile::smile:

How many hamsters does it take to screw in a light bulb?

#34

Thanks for updating everyone!

Actually that happens when match maker is trying to produce a broken match

Pacific Coast, 7:30pm, 1350 Silver, then it waits 4 minuets and dumps me into a match with like 15 smurfs in it because I can actually heal stuff as a mercy LOL K, right.

Under no circumstance would I ever believe that a fair match would be difficult to produce under the circumstances, not unless there are extra variables involved.

On WoW, you at least get to play the game after a queue, but here you just get thrown in the back again.


#37

I get the argument, but it’s literally a given every single big release/update.

Yet people are surprised about it?

It’s super annoying, but it’s expected at this point. Just wait it out. Go read a book, play another game, etc. etc.


#38

Are you really going to compare LFR que with this? :joy:


#39

i didn’t even know 5000 people played overwatch


#40

Pfft I have 20000 people ahead of me
this is wacky as heck


#41

3 PM on the east coast. 12 PM on the west. Fair to assume that most people are at work, and younger demographic is just getting home from school (unless they have extra-curricular activities.)

It’s as good of a time to release a patch as any, given that people around the globe play this game.


#42

So i was scrolling through this post, and saw yours, and then your player icon changed in front of my eyes. No idea that could happen.


#43

I just changed it. I got the new Mercy icon from my starting loot box.
