Blizzard originally made mention of queuing issues when attempting to play LucioBall, but it looks like the queues have spread to the actual login of the game as well.
“Due to technical issues, Overwatch players may experience latency or loss of connection. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience while this is being resolved,” a login message reads.
Blizzard has implemented changes and is reportedly seeing “improvements” with logins, but the login queue is still rather large.
Here’s the latest from Blizzard support:
[#Overwatch] Those of you still encountering login issues, thank you for your reports. We’re investigating.
