Good Afternoon, I have played this game over the last few weeks very smoothy but now I cannot get into games on my PC. PC is running fine I can play other games, (COD, Rocket League, Fornite) and anything else even while streaming.
Over the last few days I try to get into quick play games and every time I have been kicked from the match for “Inactivity”. Usually this takes place once we find a match and am sitting in the loading screen of the Map we are about to play. The Overwatch logo on the bottom right has a spinning icon like it loading and it stays like this until I get kicked. I am now getting a message stating that “I will be punished for quitting too many games”
Also if I try and get into the Training Map it sometimes loads in but I cannot see MY character, or weapons at all or even the icon on the bottom left of whom I am playing and there is no sound. The animations for shooting and Ashes Dynamite exploding still happen but I don’t see it being thrown. After some time this usually comes back and I can see and shoot and everything seems normal, then I switch back to quick play and cant get into a match.
At one point I got a “Error Applying Update” (UNKNOWN ERROR HF-5) screen but this only happened once. My teammates and I get get together in a lobby and que in together, they all get in and I get kicked.
Also for reference I have tried to “Repair” through the Blizzard Launcher, and also uninstalled and reinstalled as well to try to fix it with no avail.
I have a feeling its a server issue? It seems like its not loading me properly into the games but I could be wrong. I’m just hoping to get this fixed so I can continue playing. I’m scared to keep trying because I don’t want my account to get punished, they have already taken away XP according to a notification i received.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
