Overwatch 2 is now available to play however, some players have issues connecting, launching or login the game.

Update:


Simple trick massively reduces queues and server problems on PC


What is this trick? You can choose a game region in Overwatch, at least on PC. To do this, click on the globe icon in your Battle.net client. America or Europe should be set here by default.


But if you change the version to Asia, you should be spared the enormous queues and server problems from now on. Players report that there can still be waiting times, but these are drastically shorter than in America or Europe.


Blizzard is currently suffering from DDoS attacks . Since the Asian servers are not affected by problems, at least for the time being, we assume that the attacks are mainly focused on America and Europe.


According to our information, a region change for Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch is not possible.


Here, you’ll find all known error codes and we’ll show you some workarounds to fix them. However, if the fixes remain ineffective then you should contact support.


How to fix error code LC-208?

 

If you've been trying to play Overwatch 2 recently, you're most likely experiencing issues accessing the game. skins, you are disconnected from the servers. In some cases, you will see the error code LC-208. Currently, it's due to a DDOS attack on Blizzard servers that is causing these disconnects. The developer and the Blizzard team are currently working on fixing this issue.


If you encounter LC-208 issue later, here are some tips to try to fix it:

Check your network configuration for any issues with your firewall, router, or port settings.

Reset your network devices to make sure your router hasn't been flooded with data.

If you are using a wireless connection, optimize your internet connection to rule out any connection issues.

Run your console's built-in connection test (Playstation 4) (Xbox One) (Nintendo Switch).

Use your console's Internet browser to perform a Looking-Glass test. This will help you determine if the problem is between your console and our servers.

Some players noticed that the cosmetic items from Overwatch were not carrying over. This error is currently still being worked on by Blizzard, which is why there is no official solution. We therefore recommend that you wait and see. However, you can try the following solutions:


Change your server location.


Reconnect your accounts.


This is mainly due to too many users currently trying to join the OW 2 at the same time. This results in queues in some or the game crashing at launch for others. Of course, the developers are aware of the problem.
