Blizzard Entertainment Overwatch 2

I have an issue that when someone leaves during a competitive match and do not return that it does not end the match with an automatic draw, but instead we have to try win when the tables are against us cause people still think that there is a penalty if they leave even after the two-minute timer. Plus, also the fact that there are still so many Smurfs because I know I am not the best at this game and I know its supposed to be 50/50 win loss but that is not at all true. I have had longer loss streaks before any form of a win streak even makes it way into my games and life. You want people to enjoy you game but with how it goes its not working. All the pay to get skins, cheaters/smurfs, and basically uneven LOSS to win ratios does not really help with people to actually wanting to play this game almost as bad as world of warcraft.

Is Blizzard Entertainment Legit?

Blizzard Entertainment earns a trustworthiness rating of 91%

Highly recommended, but caution will not hurt.

Our conclusion: After a detailed review, ComplaintsBoard finds Blizzard Entertainment to be a trustworthy company. Although there's a 15% resolution rate for customer complaints, which deserves attention, Blizzard Entertainment is known for their high standards and safety. If you're thinking about dealing with Blizzard Entertainment, it's wise to check how they handle complaints.

We found clear and detailed contact information for Blizzard Entertainment. The company provides a physical address, 2 phone numbers, and 2 emails, as well as 2 social media accounts. This demonstrates a commitment to customer service and transparency, which is a positive sign for building trust with customers.

Blizzard Entertainment has claimed the domain name for blizzard.com for a long time, which suggests that the website is established and has a history of being in operation. This is a positive sign, as it indicates that the website has been around for a while and may have a reputation to maintain.

Blizzard.com has a valid SSL certificate, which indicates that the website is secure and trustworthy. Look for the padlock icon in the browser and the "https" prefix in the URL to confirm that the website is using SSL.

Blizzard.com has been deemed safe to visit, as it is protected by a cloud-based cybersecurity solution that uses the Domain Name System (DNS) to help protect networks from online threats.

Blizzard Entertainment as a website that uses an external review system. While this can provide valuable feedback and insights, it's important to carefully evaluate the source of the reviews and take them with a grain of salt.

We looked up Blizzard Entertainment and found that the website is receiving a high amount of traffic. This could be a sign of a popular and trustworthy website, but it is still important to exercise caution and verify the legitimacy of the site before sharing any personal or financial information

However ComplaintsBoard has detected that:

  • While Blizzard Entertainment has a high level of trust, our investigation has revealed that the company's complaint resolution process is inadequate and ineffective. As a result, only 15% of 111 complaints are resolved. The support team may have poor customer service skills, lack of training, or not be well-equipped to handle customer complaints.
  • We conducted a search on social media and found several negative reviews related to Blizzard Entertainment. These reviews may indicate issues with the company's products, services, or customer support. It is important to thoroughly research the company and its offerings before making any purchases to avoid any potential risks.

Blizzard Entertainment Overwatch account mistakenly blocked

Seven months ago my overwatch account was suddenly banned and I was very confused and upset about this. I did not do anything to sabotage the game, nor did I use any plugins. So I filed a complaint with Blizzard's customer service, hoping that they would re-verify my account and tell me exactly why they blocked my account. But after all this time, my claim and the effort and money I spent on this account was not taken seriously.

I strongly suspect that Blizzard's customer service replies are done by bots, as they are all the same and and completely ignore my requests. I think it is very unreasonable for Blizzard to deprive me of my usage rights without providing a manual investigation of my account and giving strong evidence, I, as a player and as a consumer, hope that Blizzard can really seriously verify my situation and make a proper handling of the situation, and not to wrong a regular customer.

My BLIZZARD account is huijiu#2605

E-mail is [protected]@qq.com

Desired outcome: I would like to re-verify the situation and unblock my account.

so you were blocked in march and they havent gotten back to you?

you opened the ticket online via your battle.net account right or did you call it in?

i had to talk to support 3 days ago about a bug i found and they appeared to answer right away while i was in game. it was not a bot but a real person. some of the bot responses are just quick fixes. if you did submit a ticket it may have not been processed yet. on your account [battle.net account] you can see any of your support requests in the support section of their site.

https://us.battle.net/support/en/

then under account you should be able to view your support tickets.

I understand that leavers are a big problem in the game. I hate them myself, but this new policy is awful. I often lag out, or my game will freeze, and I am unable to leave spawn room which sometimes results in me being kicked from a match. My PC will also crash midgame and I'm unable to join back in the 2-minute period. I would appreciate if you would...

Blizzard Entertainment World of warcraft

I'm contacting you because the epic premade community is getting out of control, nearly every game has a premade on either side. PVP pretty much sucks now, do you plan to address this problem? i'm not alone in my anger and frustration about this. PVP is one of the main reasons I play WOW.. if this is how it will be I dont see a reason to continue to pay for a subscription. I'm contacting you here, because you've made it close to impossible to reach someone

Desired outcome: Since a premade of more than 5 is against rules, they should be given a warning, if they continue ban them. Or make something like cross faction pvp to stop this annoying and frustrating problem

what game is this for and what is a "epic premade" community?

depending on game modes [like if its higher than 5v5] even on 5v5 if you group with friends is that premade? are you saying we shouldnt group up if we choose to pvp [NOTE: i dont like pvp cause the system loves giving me people who dont know the mechanics and high tier gear opponents].

Blizzard Entertainment World of Warcraft

at 12pm Friday 4th August I received an email which explained that my Blizzard account had been banned. Apparently permanently.

The reason given was a vague one, being something related to abuse of in game mechanics.

At this stage I was under the impression I was either a system error, or due to a common issue in relation to nefarious in game reporting by organized groups which gives rise to an automated ban, and which are (as I now read online) usually quickly reversed).

There was some confusion on me end because my computer was turned off at home, I was at work and no one was at home until 3 hours after the ban was applied, I thought that it must be a delay from the night previous at 9:30pm which was when I was last online.

Blizzard has failed to inform me when the asserted offense took place.

I explained my position to Blizzard, that it is not possible the infringement came from my computer (if indeed the ban occurred when the asserted infringement took place, as opposed the night before) - in which case i have been hacked.

To support my position, I have cctv recordings of me leaving work at 3pm, timesheets form work, and internet service providers records showing no one from my home was actively connected to the internet, let alone to a gaming server.

I also preemptively addressed the alternative scenario which is: 1 - I was banned due to mass reporting from the night before.. or 2- i was automatically flagged in error by the Blizzard cheating protections.

To address the alternative scenario i noted that the entire nights play was very likely recorded on the twitch platform, and that in game records will show that no exploitation software was used. To substantiate this further, i asked Blizzard to actively check the number of infractions/events which are being classed as infractions, my thought process being that if an exploit had occurred x 1, then this is presumably explained by chance. It would be highly unlikely to accidentally perform an exploit due to statistical reasons. i invited Blizzard to check its logs in this regard.

Blizzard has responded to my tickets. First, i received 2 additional emails setting out different reasons for my ban. The first reason is for abuse of in game mechanics. The second email set out that the reason for my automatic ban was that i had been reported by fellow gamers.

Further, the penalty itself appears to have changed, from being a permanent ban to a 6 month suspension.

I informed Blizzard that this was likely an orchestrated effort to abuse the in-game reporting system and advised Blizzard to check my chat logs as i had engaged in some back and forth communications the night prior with some unfriendly people.

Blizzard responded.

Firstly, Blizzard has refused to tell me if the asserted offence happened the night before, or during the day on Friday when my PC was turned off and i was at work.

Next, i was informed that the issue had been investigated and it was shown that an exploit had been used, and that it had been used from my location. This is not possible. Blizzard has failed to comment on any of the points i set out in my defense: my CCTv evidenced, my ISP records showing i was not online, my work time sheets, the in-game logs showing i was not exploiting, the recordings of the games played on the Twitch platform- any of which would be exculpatory in nature.

When i raised that i was unhappy with what appeared to be little to no investigation, i also raised the fact that the penalty for any such offense was also disproportionate, noting that my account had not received any sort of similar infraction notice for over 10 years- yes i have played the game daily for approximately 13 years !.

Further, i raised a ticker with Blizzard regarding quality of the investigation by the GM (Games Master), however my ticket about this was cancelled by the same GM i raised the quality issue about.

I am now banned for 6 months, with no investigation having taken place. I recently purchased 3 months of game time 1 week before the ban, and if i wish to continue to play, i must pay for another copy of the game and buy game time. This seems a clear abuse of terms and a money grabbing scheme.

Desired outcome: I would like an apology, something to compensate me for a ruined weekend and reinstatement of my account.

there are a few different messages from blizzard themselves on how to report a player. most say in game report but it is possible to send via email reports. it is possible someone may have reported you via email while you were at work which would look like to a GM as if you were home. though this is just based off what you tell us here on complaints board. it is also possible you were reported that night and they did not get to it till the next day. though as for why they would report you and how to rectify this not sure how to remedy this with a path to take.

one time i did years ago [back when i had a friend who worked for blizzard] i took pictures of a rude player's PM to me and sent it to them to cover my tracks and not get in trouble. that player tried to get me banned but my friend stopped it from affecting me since they read the chat and knew me. now a days i have no friends who work for blizzard. they left for other companies.

Blizzard Entertainment Diablo 4

Bought the diablo 4 ultimate edition with the extra perks and battle pass. Signed up on battle.net and linked with my diablo immortal account. None of the diablo4 ultimate edition items were never given to me. Contact customer support and was given the run around and finally told to delete my battle.net account and then resign up. Did that but now it wont let me sign up for a year as I just deleted my account like customer support told me to do. I cant contact customer support as you need a battle.net account to contact customer support. So now not only do I not have the ultimate edition content, I cant even play the game, so they took my 108$ for the game and now I cant even play it. Blizzard is engaged in a scam inteding on defrauding ppl of there hard earned money avoid this game and this publisjer at all costs unless you want to be violently raped by them

Desired outcome: i want my ultimate edition content or to be able to play the game. but a refund would be nice as based on my experience i will never play another game blizzard makes or is involved with.

even though you already deleted your account.

before you contacted support did you log into the game, the Events tab [on the main menu], Scroll down till you see Diablo 4 pre-order reward message and pressed redeem?

from my experience with blizzard support they don't ever say to delete your account. normally they ask network based questions, confirm you are you, and then would point you to this spot if its a redeem item. though i have not required their assistance in about a year or 2.

I now have 4 charges of $108.34 on my credit card along with 3 reversals. I do not have a gaming system and do not have children at home. I did not authorize them to make charges or reversals on my credit card. I reached out to them and have not received a response. I do not want to go through hassle of changing cards unless I have to as it is a huge hassle. I see that there have been multiple complaints against this company. Why can’t this be stopped?

Blizzard Entertainment world of warcraft

there is no customer service in under a week time of submitting a ticket. you don't get a person you get an automatic generated response. their game has so many bugs and issue that they refuse to answer or address. i cant can my subscription not to mention missing items and vaults...the date of the incident was on Tuesday June 6th. since then as far as my subscription goes they took care of removing my card with in hours but my original complaint has still not been addressed or even acknowledged .Since my complaint to the company my card has been removed there is no renewal and the option to continue will be based on the original complaints outcome which involved a mistake on their part as i did not receive items in my game as per what i was entitled. which in turn is not only a waste of my money not getting the full features of the game but also the money i paid for the subscription. I would like my issues addressed in a timely manner 3 days to 15 days is not timely i consider this a switch and bait if not straight up fraud. and no you cannot get in contact with customer service they do not exist

Blizzard Entertainment I have been banned from playing on Blizzard Entertainment through no fault of my own.

I discovered that my account had been hacked when I tried to log into it recently.  Someone had changed my email address and password and had been inappropriately playing using my details which resulted in my account being banned.  I contacted Customer Support who helped me to recover my account by asking me security questions and for proof of purchase of various items that I was able to provide.  I reset my email address and password however I was told that the ban could not be lifted.

 

I have spent a considerable amount of money and time playing this game and there is no way that I would risk playing inappropriately when I know that a permanent ban would result in all that time, effort and money being wasted.  I feel it is grossly unfair that I am being punished for actions of another person when there is proof that my account had been hacked and I would respectfully ask that the ban be reversed.

Desired outcome: A reversal of the ban on my account.

you can try the current privacy laws from California to find out what they know but that might not work. as you know they keep records of the player data to ensure your safety on their apps. though you still have to prove it wasn't you that did it. there are many ways someone could have faked being you.

As for the TOU [terms of use] they state that current rules imply that you are still responsible for your accounts actions even if you were hacked.

from what you said there are 2 possibilities,

do you live with other people?

1. someone may have accessed your computer so they did it from your ip address directly.

2. someone used a hide my ip [ip address masking program] and masked themselves as your ip

in both cases from what i read in the TOS it is your responsibility still, even though you were hacked, what your account does. to prove your account was not you beyond reasonable dubout you would need to use evidence that they have access to.

i would suggest appealing and referencing the California law " California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018" they would have to provide you with what information they collected on you which might include the IP addresses used on your account. this may show in their files that someone else used it without your consent and they would have to unblock you.

though i am not saying it will work, it is just a option.

Blizzard Entertainment Team Communication

I play overwatch every day and I'm relatively new so I'm not always great. The chat is so bad that today I got into it with someone because I was just asking a question and it escalated after they started trashing on me. Eventually it turned into us verbally abusing each other and then a teammate telling me to kill myself. That is totally unacceptable and it is messed up someone would do that. I want to keep playing your game, but this stuff makes it difficult.

my last reply seems to not have posted.

i totally agree. i have had the last one happen before to me, also the team blaming me for the wipe [mind you i was with the healer keeping them alive] and i was using the last expansion's skill layout. meanwhile i had rebuilt my skill bar in beta for the new expansion to function with the changes so i was using only the new skill system. honestly the "team work" has vanished from games and they put team games and features for team work but you cant fix that while you have "team distructors" [people who make team based games/events not worth doing] in the game. i mean that is why i dont do in WOW any raids/pvp/ or dungeons cause there is no team work. i maybe get a ligit [helpful players] team 1 out of 100 teams.

Blizzard Entertainment No help from the supportline what so ever

I try already for 2 months to get in contact with Blizzard to get my account recovered from 2015. First, I couldn't find my disc with the key code. Now I found it and tried over and over again to get back into contact with Blizzard through their website and by reacting on the e-mail that I got months ago, but still without luck or reply. It is unacceptable that I am already working on this since end of December and still can not get in contact with them. It really makes my blood boil

Desired outcome: My account back from 2015 and 2 months free WoW as compromise for the wait without reaction

Blizzard Entertainment Juvenile forum rules

I recently came across a passionate topic of Arthas Menethil on Blizzards forums. Ive never posted there before and decided to join the discussion for the first time posting my personal take on the characters decision through constructive criticism of THAT character. Ive also added a humorous dialog to my post so that the people can lighten up in conversation and have some fun.

Next thing I know I was banned for violating Forums rules.

When I contested suspension I was told that the reason behind it was because I posted on a thread that was over 30 days old. Are you insane?

Do I even need to explain how juvenile that is? I don't look at date of forum posts I simply find them online and if you don't want people posting then block comment section or delete the tread all together. This is one of many reasons people are leaving WoW. You people are headed down a dark path much like Arthas menethil.

Moreover the agent who replied to me suggested that its unecessary for me to post humorous content?... take a look:

"So in this case, this whole situation is due to your original post in that thread breaking the rules of necroing threads that have long since been inactive. While the extra posts making jokes about that were unneeded, you do need to make sure if you want to talk about a particular topic, that is has been active in the last 30 days, or it can lead to silences like this."

R.I. P Blizzard

Desired outcome: Blizzard taken over by people who actually care about gaming and gamers not some for profit CEO's that use WoW's fame to cash in stocks.

From what i recall OP that rule has been in effect since WoW [not classic] first launched. It has only become more frequent in the past few years I think since 2016 that they are cracking down on it. I once got messaged in the past I think around wrath [not classic] that a GM [forum side] asked me not to necro a old post on the forum thread due to others posting in it and I just stopped and only posted on threads 10 to 15 days old.

In the past you might have been able to slip by them with it but now they are actively enforcing it for some reason.

Blizzard Entertainment Overwatch 2

I have been playing Overwatch since it came out, and it was legitimately therapeutic. Overwatch 1 was a great way to make friends and play a fairly balanced, team based game. Now, with OW2, it has become a cash grab that takes advantage of young gamers with access their parents credit cards. They advertise their new skins with events, thus enticing young gamers to buy their skins. I believe these events are actually targeted towards those kids, creating an unsound and irresponsible gaming environment. It's a very uncouth and disrespectful way to make a game. Pathetic, is the word that actually comes to mind. Not only that, the frustration of the monetization is draining on the players, making an even more toxic environment. I know nothing is going to come from my submitting this, but I just want whoever reads this to know that you're not working for a good company anymore. You're working for a company that is a shell of what they used to be, and you could do better.

- Kiatro

Desired outcome: Change up the currency model. Ask whatever god you believe in to forgive you for making a game this user-adverse, and ask forgiveness from your fanbase for attempting to take advantage of them .

Blizzard Entertainment World of Warcraft: Dragonflight

I'm an American currently living in China. I play wow on both the Chinese server and the American server. In the past I have been able to purchase expansions from the Chinese server and have the files be recognized by the American account.

However, with Dragonflight my purchase of the expansion on the Chinese server is not being recognized on the American bnet account. I have sent a ticket to the company to address this problem and have been told this will take initially 24 hours, but then has turned into over 25 days to get a reply. This means that not only do I have to wait to get this problem handled but the paid game time I have is wasting away because I can't do anything until this gets fixed.

I have screen shots of my purchase, and other information to support my purchase.

Desired outcome: I would like to have my American account recognize my purchase of the Dragonflight expansion, as it has in the past with other expansions and I would like a credit for the wasted game time waiting for this problem to be corrected.

further update. Since I have received no response through the company or even this site I have escalated the matter to the California Consumer Protection Agency. I did not want to move to this level, but Blizzard's lack of response or even a timely response has made that necessary. This would not be a problem if I had not already spent money on the new expansion but also the time to enjoy it.

In the past they were timely with their replies and when you actually were able to talk with someone problems were handled quickly, whether in a favorable way or not. Now there is a total lack of customer support which is completely unacceptable.

If anyone has a better way to handle this I'm open to suggestions as well they are constructive and help resolve this problem.

I'm having the same problem. I am based in UK but have US server account as most of my characters and play has been done on US server. Blizzard had got my Shadowlands expansion purchase to get set up on US server ok and within quick response time. But this time they have not responded. The system is frustrating as when I clicked on "Upgrade" in my US WoW game login page it charged my card card and I assumed it would automatically apply the upgrade to the US account (as I initiated the transaction from the US page) But wierdly it charged me in UK currency and left me unable to play DF as it wont connect up to US Shadowlands. I dont understand why its impossible to contact them by phone or by email.

Blizzard Entertainment DragonFlight please read

Aside from the obvious wokeness of the dragonkin stolen from DnD lore almost verbatim, the uncommon class that is misunderstood and disenfranchised etc etc. The new talent tree is great, love it!

Unfortunately, it's like death knights all over again that ruin the regular player's experience. ZERO work and handed a level 58, flood the dungeons with insta que squish tanks and clumsy puppy dps that make it absolutely miserable for everyone else.

Perhaps a "Dungeon of trials" a quest chain a player has to follow before queing. Item level matters not if you don't know a flash heal from a blood boil ground mechanic.

That's what made Azeroth a different game. It was challenging. Why should I have to play a game frozen in time, and retail is pop culture woke pandering easy mode? Bring back tongue in cheek wow, we miss you.

Desired outcome: New quest chain to assure dungeon etiqutte, basic skills, can be chosen for each specialization. "Scales of adventure" or maybe "Trials by Ty"
