Calendar view bug 4/5
Hey, pretty good app, wish I could see the scores from each map though.
However I’m writing to report a small bug on the Calendar View for a particular team.
For instance, if you navigate to the LA Valiant, then to their full schedule calendar view, it shows previous match results where the “W” and “L” are inconsistent. It shows a loss against SF, and a win against NY, which are incorrect. The other matches are correct.
Very well done, needs some tweaks 4/5
Overall the app works very well. Interface is very clear and intuitive. The fact that you can favorite teams is awesome. Game spoilers are handled well. Video playback of matches are high quality except for one issue: the video playback doesn’t use the default iPhone video player. As a result, when I watch the video in full screen, the screen goes dark and eventually turns off due to “inactivity” even though I’m watching a video. I have to occasionally tap the screen to keep it from going dark. If the VODs were played on the default mobile video player, this app would be an easy 5 stars. All things considered, this app is very well done!
Great, but lacking s couple features 4/5
I love this app, and I love OWL overall, but the lack of Chromecast support means I rarely get to watch past matches because I’d have to dig for them on Twitch or MLG.
I usually choose to watch live matches on Twitch because I like to cast to my tv from an iPad. I’d use this more if there were a native iPad version and Chromecast support.
This is awesome 5/5
I’m so glad Blizzard did this. This whole event is a blast to watch!
Rubber Banding Video 1/5
The video jumps backwards frequently. I want to use the app to watch the OW league matches so the OWL has better metrics for who’s watching, but the frequent backward hops mean I have to close and reopen to get anywhere from 1-20min of no jumps...
Hard to tolerate, it’s also my only problem with the app. If you don’t have that issue the app is probably great, but for me it’s nearly unusable and very uncomfortable.
Bugs need fixing and interface can improve 2/5
The app has potential, a bug that rewinds vods by 5 seconds about twice a minute makes them unwatchable. I minor thing that would also be nice to fix is if after you clicked a game to check the score, it didn’t bring you all the way to the top of the stage schedule/scores one you backed out of that game summary. Since each stage is a few weeks long, it’s a lot of scrolling. The vod bug needs fixing ASAP, however. Those vods are why I use the app.
Love it, with a but 3/5
It’s great, but with the app on iPad Pro 12.9 it doesn’t properly rotate video for full screen, and cannot properly be displayed on a tv as the video only displays in a portrait style view on a landscape tv. The app itself seems to be the issue, remaining in portrait mode on the iPad, but displaying landscape video
Great app, VODs don’t work, Fix ASAP 3/5
This is an overall outstanding app that runs very smoothly and makes overwatch seem like it has always been a sport.
But if I don’t watch a match live, I can’t watch it at all. For some reason all VODs load for a second then the screen turns black so I cannot watch any replayed matches.
It’s quite disappointing because I have to spoil the match by looking at the scores instead.
Thanks Blizzard 5/5
Thanks for not airing on some obscure cable channel and ensuring there is a well organized and scheduled show. Having the option to see when games are via on game menus was already a huge plus. This is over the top.
Crashes way too much!!!! 3/5
Great app, great consept! It got me into MLG 100% (go Boston Uprising) but the app crashes any time I try to check the score of an old match, or when I try to watch and VOD or video. And I mean everytime. Once the crashes are solved, I'll be happy to give it 5/5, but it's so bad that (to quote Junkrat) I'll give it a 3
Great app, great execution, but one hair pullingly frustrating issue 3/5
I love this app; its a little buggy, and runs a little slow sometimes, but I don't really have an issue with that. It could even just be my phone (I have a 5s.) The only reason I rated this 3 stars is because, currently, there is no way to stay signed in after closing the app. You might get lucky and not have to type in your Blizzard info every time, but it would be great if the app just let you sign in once and be done. This is really the only issue I have, however it is extremely inconvienent to have to sign in almost everytime, and for that reason I rated 3/5. If this gets resolved, I would be more than happy to bump it to a 5 star. Like I said, it's a great app with great execution. It's super polished and user friendly.
Screen Mirroring Bug 5/5
To start, this app is fantastic and I prefer to watch on this app above MLG or Twitch
There is a bug when using the iOS App and Screen Mirroring. When orienting into full screen/landscape, the picture will flip sideways on the mirror device, essentially turning 90 degrees while still keeping the screen profile of the portrait view.
There is also a bug that causes your phone to go to sleep if you simply rotate the phone to landscape instead of pressing the fullscreen button.
I would also love to see the roster highlight who is playing in the current match and the icon of the character, but that may require too much management from a human input.
The other is that when you select a match, you see the point breakdown for each round in the match rather than just the total match result, maybe even percentage/tick/distance info.
Also it would be cool if when you are watching a match and click on a player in the roster their stats for that round and maybe even up to that point in the series comes up, like an on demand stats similar to the ones they show during the match breaks.
Great App 5/5
So far so good! I have been able to get all the info I need with no screw-ups.
Very well organized 4/5
It's a good app! It has a few bugs here and there but I like how you can add teams to your home. It's also really easy to see team stats. One thing I want is individual player stats and profiles though. Otherwise it's near perfect!
One bugs needs fixing for a five star 4/5
This app is great, except a small annoying bug which can cause damage to your phone. If you have an iPhone X and you full screen the stream/VOD the home indicator will remain at the bottom of the screen, this can cause it, over the course of the stream, to burn into your screen. If you fix this to be a true full screen experience the app would be a five star.
Great, couple bugs, many suggestions 4/5
Overall pleased with how professional this app looks. I’ve made a long list of suggested improvements, but it’s easy to blather about stuff that could be better. The best parts of the design and UI fly under the radar.
-Excellent visuals, clean and smooth
-UI is overall easy to navigate
-Ability to follow specific teams
-Excited to have a place to see all the OWL news
-Twitch chat free (I’m sure this is a con for some, but personally I like to watch the for the first time without being distracted by trolls).
-Stuttering while watching livestreams, not related to my device or connection because stream runs perfectly on Twitch
-Sometimes app does not register that a video is being viewed and my phone turns off the screen mid video
-Not sure that “hide score” is as useful as other reviewers feel. Could be a tighter “hide spoilers” setting that hides the vod length, number of games played, etc. Would be cool to see more control over this.
- Separate the highlight, news, etc. videos from the match vods instead of grouping all under “videos.” When I come into the app, the main thing I’m looking for are the matches. Other times I’m bored and want to see some supplementary content. Having to dig through the other videos for the match vods or check which teams played most recently so I can find the vods on the team page is a little annoying.
-More news! Of course there’s all sorts of news and content that I could look up on my own, but I’d love to get more of it in one place. Right now the ancillary highlights and news feel a little sparse.
-Audio only play, would especially like to listen to stuff like weekly preview while doing other work and saving phone battery
-Rewind livestreams: this is something I love about watching YT livestreams. I can come in late for a stream, back up an hour ago to when the first match started, skip through the boring parts and catch back up while mostly avoiding spoilers. Wish other streaming platforms would adopt.
-Double-tap skip 10 seconds: another great thing from the YT app. Makes find the exact moment you want to see so much easier on a touch screen.
Great app with a few bugs 5/5
I love this app and am following the Fusion and Dynasty. The app is great for tracking when the games are and the team standing but trying to use the actual video feature of the app does not work. When I go to watch a game the video page gets pulled up but where the video is supposed to be is just black. I don’t know if it’s my phone (6s) or just the app.
Loved Theme and design, fast and easy to use
Amazing App But One Annoying Bug 4/5
I love the app but I keep getting this bug where whenever I try and add another team to my favorites it resets them back to my original two teams after a couple hours. Please fix! I want to be notified when my teams are playing.
I love OW and the league! But 1 prob 3/5
So the league is amazing and it’s a great app it’s just while streaming the video will skip backward about 5 seconds and do it at least 3 times then do it again later along the video. Fixing this will make it a perfect app! Go sf shock!
Crashes and laggy video 1/5
Whenever I try to check the Dallas fuel it crashes also the video is hella laggy twitch is a way better way to view games than this slow crappy app
Great design, one bug breaking functionality 4/5
I enjoy just about everything about the app. It’s well thought out and nice to have everything about the league in one place including video on demand of previous matches with the option of not being spoiled about the outcomes. The bug I’m running into is when I try tapping to my favorite team at the top bar, the app just crashes out completely.
Needs more features 3/5
By PC games are the best
The app fulfills basics decently but it would be nice for it to have 1080p 60fps video, or link directly to the twitch stream. With a time stamp for clips or individual matches if applicable. Decent app. Average so far, hence the 3 stars.
A good start but too buggy. 3/5
By Klink C.
Never remembers my favorited teams, and thus never notifies me.
Livestreams never start for me with no indication that it’s at least *trying* to load it.
And it just forgot my blizzard login.
No iPad Support 3/5
Please update the app to support native iPad layouts
Kind of buggy, other small issues. 3/5
I’ve been using the app for about a week now, and I’ve tried to really check all of the functionality of it.
Here are some bugs I’ve experienced:
-video skipping during streaming a recorded show (not a live stream). The video will skip/or stutter one or two seconds back in time and replay. Happened on two vods.
-video dimming. I saw someone else point out that while watching recorded vods the screen will dim as if the phone is idle.
-app crashing- this started happening today. I restarted my phone and closed out the app entirely multiple times. I’ve given up using it today.
-ui issue. When looking at player rosters, it is extremely annoying that player names won’t expand at all. Some of the player names are long and it would just be nice to be able to expand or pop out the whole name some how.
Visually it looks great. I really like that you can choose to hide or show scores. The articles
When I switch over to Dallas fuel tab on top bar, it crashes but overall a good menu and app.
The articles are good and it’s nice to look at the score, but none of the videos or live streams work, not sure if this is just me or if it is the app, but it is very aggravating
I can’t login with Chinese account. 3/5
Plz make the app friendly for the global users.
Noticing some bugs 5/5
The app crashes after I click the FL Mayhem on the Stage 1 standings page.
Good App, Too Clunky 2/5
The app just isn’t fluid enough. Needs more maneuverability. Also crashes a lot when trying to look at specific teams/divisions.
Glitchy Playback 3/5
By Jay Ortin
During Live/ Recorded matches it tends to replay the same thing that occurred two or three times after a few seconds .
Pretty dang good 4/5
I really enjoy the app as I find it sleek and it’s nice to see what team are playing and when, their wins and losses, etc. Yes streaming it has some minor issues but I have faith those will be ironed out. I’m more concerned with the frequent crashes I experience when trying to navigate the app. Any time I click on a team I’m subscribed to I have only three seconds to view their page before the app crashes, and crashes also happen whenever I’m on a part of the app that’s not viewing a series/video. Fix this and five stars, for sure. I’m excited to see the OWL succeed.
By Street Soldja
Can’t use this app for more than 10 minutes before it crashes. Didn’t when I first downloaded it.
It’s great 4/5
The app is great, but the Dallas Fuel page is broken 75% of the time. Why can’t I see their stats without checking the opposing team’s page?
A few small bugs 4/5
Every time I change my followed teams, it doesn't save the changes and resets to the old teams after a while. Also, the screen dims while streaming. Other than that, great app.
Just a big report 5/5
Great app. Overall amazing and even allows you to avoid spoilers.
But bug is if the philly fusion is in your favs and you select it, it crashes my app. Only complaint
Notifications Not Working 4/5
I’m so glad this app is a thing and super helpful but I’m not getting some notifications for games when they go live. I know what time the games are but if I forget as the season goes on I’d like this to be taken a look at.
Great app, standings need more info 4/5
Great app, but there are some minor improvements to be made. Outlining more statistics would be cool to look at, and the line for wild cards needs to be moved up 1 space, because 6 make it into the playoffs not 7.
In-depth player analysis 4/5
It’s a great app but I would love player profiles and advanced metrics like eliminations and healing done for each player during a single game and overall in the season, kinda like sport star lines. Otherwise the app is great
Glad to have this app! Small bugs 5/5
By El Keesee
Great product, stats, teams, players. I think they should add coaches too! Pretty much everything you need to stay up to date on all things OWL.
good start 3/5
Needs to run on Apple TV though
Great App, However it crashes alot 2/5
This app is great and I love using it. However recently it has crashed alot and I cant watch any of the games for long before the app crashes.
This app is good. ._. I would like if there would be a widget that could show game times, game scores, and followed teams’ record. Plz consider
Frequent crashes 3/5
Crashes whenever you click on the Fuel or the Shock in the standings section
Great app but... 5/5
I’m a huge overwatch fan and I love watching the overwatch league. My only problem with the app is that it doesn’t show specifics like which team won what round on which map and what the score was.
Great with small bugs. 4/5
Great interface and news about the league. However the video streaming has some bugs that need to be addressed. There seems to be some random repeating going on during the vods. It’s as if the video rewinds a second or so, but the video timer keeps going forward. I experienced this problem on both the SF shock and Dallas fuel matches and it was quite annoying. Also my iPhone doesn’t seem to recognize that a video is playing and if I leave it playing the screen goes dim after 2 minutes. I do not have this problem with any other video streaming apps. If these bugs are fixed, easily 5 stars.
A few improvements 4/5
By Masrur Rahman
I would love too see a option where I can change resolution and a double tap feature to forward or rewind by 5 or 10 sec :)
One problem 5/5
By xX Username Xx
As of January 11th 2018, the app crashes every time I try to load the Dallas Fuel page. Otherwise the app is awesome and makes keeping up with and viewing OWL super easy
Nice app! Just a small bug. 5/5
Really enjoying the League and the app. Recommended! I like where this is going. The bug is that it has only kept wakelock once out of 3 VODs I’ve tried to watch, so the screen keeps going off during the video unless I keep it awake. I haven’t watched the livestream here yet to know if it impacts that. Not sure what was different the time it worked except that I had force quit the app immediately before just to see if a reset fixed the bug. Seems like this shouldn’t be a big deal to fix.
