Have you gotten in?

Good luck spoon ! I hope you get in and when you do your first game is a win.


Thanks, Craig! Appreciate it - hope you didn’t have to work too late yesterday/today to get this out. :grimacing:


Get what out? They haven’t freaking done anything yet.


Collaborating with the team and then being able to have an approved message to post, and they have put out updates and patches to try to stabilize.


There was a separate issue with account merge where players who had merged their console and PC accounts were experiencing problems logging in. This bug is now resolved. If you watched any community streamers on launch day, you might have noticed some had more trouble logging in than others; this bug was the primary cause for that. Yeah this was said and. It is a. Lie Bug. Is not fixed at all still unable to log in for 2 days.


I’d been trying to get in since launch time on XSX, with zero luck. I just switched to the Asia server on PC and finished playing 3 matches without a single problem! (Thanks to whoever recommended it earlier in this thread or another). For those that want to try it on PC, just use the small globe icon on the Battle.net launcher to change your region. I was able to “queue” my account merge (I just had to verify the connection I already have for Xbox and PC). Other than that, it was completely smooth sailing… almost like a game launch from a multi-billion dollar corporation is supposed to go.

It looks like Blizzard is finally providing some real information about their issues: Overwatch 2 Known Issues - October 25, 2022. It’s clearly not [just] a DDoS issue… they’re got lots of architecture problems and are not communicating well.

Just waited another 50 minutes in queue and recieved another login error. Honestly, I’m just frustrated at this point. Hope it’s actually fixed by tomorrow but I won’t be counting on it.


Same… error LC-208 as usual


Yep, that’s exactly what I got.


First attempt was not successful, I’m now in a new queue to try it all again though.

I play on Xbox - EU

I merged my Xbox with my Pc so seems the problem is not fully fixed yet but I’m sure it will be soon.

I haven’t actually attempted to queue via Pc yet though so I might give that a go if this continues to be unsuccessful.

I just would like to get in even once lol, It’s been a very long 2 days.


Yeah I got the same :pleading_face:

I play on Xbox NA and have also merged my Xbox and PC account. My friend got in once. His account was not merged so that’s most definitely the problem here. I wish they’d clarify how long it would take for the ‘fix’ to start working.


honestly i think i give up i’ll probably log in when they announce overwatch 3.


I am also a victim of account merging :smiling_face_with_tear:


That update claims the account merge issue preventing logins has been fixed. It has not as I’m still unable to login on Xbox here in Australia. I’ve not been able to login once since launch.

I’m not getting any response to this from anyone at Blizzard either here, on Twitter or via Customer Support and I’m getting absolutely fed up.


I have several friends who all did the account merge and they’re able to login on Xbox here in Australia.

I also did the account merge pre-launch and I’ve not been able to login once yet.


All I wanted was my cosmetics to be on PC account as well as my Xbox account. Alas, it is simply to much to ask for… :frowning:


Was playing grounded to try and take my mind of it earlier and the voice actor for one of the characters is D.va it’s like they were torturing me lol!!

Yeah … I know what you mean, it’s just so annoying when you sit for ages staring at a queue just to get no where thinking maybe this time might work :pleading_face:

I keep trying to tell myself every hour and day is a bonus and a closer fix.

The devs must be as deflated as we are

Hm, I did it pre-launch too. Maybe that’s the issue?

Nope, because all my friends did it pre-launch as well and they’re in and playing.
