Game hasn’t worked since yesterday’s patch!

Hi, since the summer games patch went live yesterday, I have been unable to play the actual game. I’m able to launch the game and have it load but once it gets to the menu it freezes and I either have to wait a long time for it to unfreeze (if I’m that lucky) or it disconnects me telling me “lost connection to server”. I’ve tried resetting my computer/turning it off and on again, uninstalling and reinstalling overwatch, closing every single background app (I.e. discord) but nothing seems to work! I really want to play the game right now and I’d like some helpful feedback, thanks!

Since I’m not sure if your issue is with your hardware or your internet connection, going to offer up these two threads:
