Account got wiped when logging into ow2

They said they’re working on it but there’s no ETA.

I daresay they’re working on getting everyone into the game first, as many still cannot log in (myself included).

Same here bro. What a messed up way to ruin a beloved game. No skins no progress. Its like i never played OverWatch. I hate it

It’s not gone. It’s a bug.

At least you can log in! I’m also on Xbox but have just passed hour 14 of not being able to log in…

The people posting here have not lost “some”, they have lost everything; I am one of these people (Xbox). To your post (thread intrusion) about not being able to log in: they have been ddos’d twice now, are working through it, and have posted about it.

also here same problem: I have always played Overwatch 1 legendary edition on Xbox One for hundreds and hundreds of hours, trying to collect skins, I had already linked my battlenet account to the xbox account because the game was asking me to. about a year ago, in fact the nickname in the game had also changed. I did not know that the account had to be merged because they had not advertised it and I found myself at level 1 with everything eliminated. I’m still pissed off by all this, I even opened a Ticket. Do you have any news?

I too lost everything, I couldn’t even get the drive to play after seeing I didn’t even have my fav character to play as until I played almost 50 or so games.

Looks like the wiped accounts are a console issue and we know how important console players are to Blizzard. Don’t expect to get your stuff back anytime soon.

My account looked wiped for the first login, to where I was having to unlock new heroes with games played. Then a couple hours later, I logged back in and all of the heroes were unlocked and the page that showed the required games needed was blank.

My client was set to log into the Euro servers, due to the DDoS attack, so maybe there was some kind of delay in them accessing my account info or something?

I will be devistated if I don’t get all my stuff back, that’s years and a thousand hours of playing lost. I probably won’t play if I can’t get it back

I also lost everything, won’t play if I have to start from scratch again. What a dissapointing start

Yeah I lost everything, I’m level 1 again, I have no skins, none of the currency I had. It’s ridiculous

I’m not playing this game if I have to unlock everything again. It’s even worse because I bought owl skins like the dragon skin for sombra, that’s literally money I spent on the game on cosmetics I won’t get back.

I’m in the EXACT same boat. All my cosmetics, sprays, icons, stats, settings etc are ALL gone when I logged into overwatch on my ps5. The game treats me like a brand new player - telling me to do tutorials and unlock all the heroes one by one. This sucks so much dude. I have no motivation to play until I have all of my stuff back. :frowning:
