    Competitive Overwatch - Can not play with my friend in matches.


    Hi, about 2 - 3 months ago me and my friend used to play overwatch competitive together all the time.

    I live in the UK and she lives in the US. Now when we launch a competitive match, it takes us over 25 minutes to even find a game.

    I have set my xbox to US. This still doesn’t help. I’ve spoken to Blizzard and they said they can’t help.

    Does anyone have any solutions for this?

    :)

    Competitive Overwatch - Can not play with my friend in matches.

    Hi,

    If you have higher ranks, queue time gets longer, although not as long as 25 minutes. I personally haven't had any of those issues recently and I (US) and my partner (UK) just played comp together the other day. This leads me to believe its not a large-scale
    issue (a bit harder to find a solution for).

    I tried to research it a bit, and nothing really came up that was recent or had a proper solution.

    Have you tried to simply uninstall and reinstall the game? Either of you?

    I know it can be a pain to do, but it may fix your issue. Sorry that I cannot provide a better solution.

    Hope this helped.

    Cannot Raise Reputation after 6 months of World of Tanks

    Yes this has happened to some of my friends who play competitive Overwatch, it seems to be an issue in competitive play. I heard playing World of Tanks usually helps but 6 months seems a little excessive. Hopefully you get your situation figured out I guess
    thats why PS4's popularity has been growing compared to Xbox.

    Yea I played Symmetra on Overwatch and even though I had a 66% win percentage with her I kept getting reported for unsportsmanlike conduct. I have been thinking about getting a PS4 but Ive been with Xbox for over 10 years and am a huge Halo fan so I want
    to stay with them if my account can work again.

    Insight

    Competitive mode is a different beast, honestly. I personally feel that doing it without a group that is as into it as you makes it harder. Communication and reactions are key in Competitive mode, and having a random pick up group makes that difficult. Think
    of Competitive mode more like how people play in Team Fortress 2 or MOBA games; they do it with a group of friends and plan out attacks kind of like a competitive sports teams.

    You could do the placement matches by yourself, but if you get placed severely below friends of yours (those that are on Xbox), you cannot play with them in groups after. Support characters also take a bit more of a hit because they don't do as much damage,
    so do placement matches as offense, defense, or tanks.

    Once Clubs become available to everyone, as opposed to only in Preview right now, it will make finding a group easier for you. You could join a competitive club for Overwatch then and play in groups that are in the Club. This will be similar to how Beacons
    worked on the Xbox 360 (if you remember those). Sometimes there's threads in these forums where people are looking for others to group with them. If you can't find one immediately, you can always post a new one!

    Xbox live avoid me rep

    I have played countless hours of a variety of multiplayer games all week, to no avail.

    Competitive mode is now live in Overwatch, and I am unable to play merely because a few players didn't want to get matched up against me.

    I really hope somebody on the Enforcement team will address this.
