Have you gotten in?

Unlikely to happen imo. Acti-blizz are more than likely going to hand us a paltry copper or two’s worth of currency, point fingers and sweep this under the rug. They are in real danger of losing all credibility.


They already lost all their credibility with letting Overwatch die, the lawsuit business, the debacle that was World of Warcraft: Shadowlands, and the despicable predatory nature of Diablo: Immortal.

Overwatch 2 was meant to be the start of their redemption arc. In that regard, they’ve failed miserably by still not having the login issues resolved in the over 12 hours it’s been since launch.


People are still working on the issue.


Okay. Thank you for the clarification.

Still not happy about having wasted an entire day off work waiting to be able to get into the game and am certainly hoping that there will be some form of compensation offered to your players for this massive inconvenience.


I could get in (xbox) at 6 am (Germany) in the morning, :laughing: when I woke up early. Sadly I had to leave 4 work after a few practice matches. :sweat_smile:

Lucky you got in. Ive been in stuck in deathloop for 12 hours. Man im dead :skull:

I have nothing to do today fortunately, so i will be making attempts every hour, on the hour, until the early evening where i will return here with a few well curated notes of my customer experience.

So far its painfully obvious i’m not going to be providing a good review of my experience.


I got in on my PS4 but all my skins, stats, etc are missing from Overwatch 1. I did the account merge but nothing. And there is an account merge button in OW2 but when I click it nothing happens. What do I do if it’s treating me like a new player? Everything is locked etc I’m pissed…

For me enough compensation would be to make those old (2018) Valiant, Shock and Mayhem skins available again. Hell, I’ll pay for them, just make them available to purchase. Even that is wishful thinking though, I know.

Sat in queue to get into the game from 9:30 UK time till 2am while I made dinner and played other games, every time I got to 2000 players ahead of me it would reset back to 40k players in front.

Logged in at 9:30am today and I’m just getting an unexpected server issue and being logged out.

I was able to get in but, ALL of my progress was gone, I am being treated like a new player having to play the training room just to unlock quick play. All of my stats, settings, heros, skins, sprays, voicelines, everything is gone.


15 hours in, still ZERO successful logins. I haven’t even seen the main menu yet. This is a very bad joke at this point. I keep getting a Login Error “disconnected from game server. (LC-208)” every single time.


Hey Andy B give me a Riot Gun Buddy

I’m on the exact same boat. Almost 16hours pressing the A button … It’s torture :pleading_face:

It will all be worth it though when we do finally get in.

Dear devs: remember to drink water, eat, rest up and don’t over stress.

After researching the error LC-208 seems to be an issue with the server reports are saying. Previously it was parental controls issue. From looking at everything I believe it’s the migration issue as people who haven’t merged their accounts seem to be in on Xbox and PS5.
I could be wrong but that’s where I’m up to! Just hope the tech guys get some sleep and are able to get this sorted today. <3

Can’t do that on console unfortunately. Good tip for PC players though


PlayStation & Xbox users can’t get in and it takes time for them to push a patch out because of regulations with Sony & Microsoft.

Can’t get in because I merged Accounts in OW1 as we were told. “Unexpected Server Error”

Guess thats what I get for buying the game for PC at launch and then again the Watchpoint Pack for Console.
How did they not test this? Well lets hope this will be resolved “ASAP” as their now quickly deleted Tweet had claimed…
This launch is a big mess but I dont know why I am even surprised about any of this.
