Won’t even open anymore.
Great app, nitpicking about literally one thing 4/5
By TD Lane
I love the fact that I can watch matches through the app. Because of that I have been able to catch just about every Outlaw game this season. What I would like to see though, is on the standings page, also show the map differentials. Those are important.
Needs a bug fix 4/5
By Old and Green
I really enjoy the app and enjoy being able to watch VODs when I am unable to watch live. However, there are a couple of glaring issues that may make me delete it altogether. There are times while watching where it will briefly rewind and the same frame will replay two or three times in a row. There are also more recently issues with the video completely starting at the beginning. It has done this multiple times and it is very frustrating. I love the app honestly so please fix these issues. Thank you and go NYXL!!
Usually Great, But This Version Crashes Constantly 2/5
The app has previously worked mostly like a charm for me. But for some reason this version crashes almost every time I use it. I'll open it, load a stream, and switch to another app briefly. When I try to switch back to the OWL app, it reliably crashes at that point. Same if I start a stream and then try to go back to the home menu of the app. It has also started resuming audio when I leave the OWL app but then open another app. I'll give this the five star rating I think it deserves once these issues are fixed (hopefully soon!).
Also, in case the devs are reading this, please make match notifications happen when the match is actually going to start, not just at the "estimated" time. Thanks for all your hard work!
It was fine until recently 2/5
Now I can’t even open the app. It continuously crashes
I can’t get app to start. 5/5
Whenever I click on the icon, it stays on the loading screen forever. I can’t get to the home screen. Blizzard, Help!
It’s great but we need overwatch mobile 4/5
By Jurassic boss
If you agree with me respond by saying yes
Needs work 3/5
This app serves its main function, but there’s a ton of bugs including:
When live-streaming a game, the video turns black and crashes. This doesn’t happen when you’re streaming the game from the twitch app.
When you’re watching past vods, the video usually restarts without any prompt to do so.
Constant crashes on the app for whatever reason.
Blizzard please fix this app, then I’d give it a higher rating.
App keeps crashing and shutting down. As a result I’m not getting my fix or my tokens.
It’s good but... 3/5
It won’t stop crashing can you please fix this bug.
Over WHINE League 1/5
These “pros” destroyed Mercy . Their constant whining and complaining influenced the developers decision for such drastic changes . I would never watch these whiners whom call themselves “pros “. I now play and watch Fortnite streams
App is great! 5/5
By Hayden LR
GO LONDON SPITFIRE!!!
Good app but needs some buffs 4/5
Overall it does its function and makes watching live matches and games easier than with twitch. Some things they need to fix before stage 3: when watching a recorded match the video will stop and start and repeat over and over again. After testing this, the repeats are part of the actual video. Some simple editing to remove them would be great because it’s super annoying, especially some that are like 30 seconds long of just “take the point-take the point-take the point” over and over again. Another thing I would add for the videos is a rewind and fast forward button. This could be he normal one or just having the “15 seconds ahead/15 seconds back” kind of setting would help immensely in watchability.
Outdated Rosters 3/5
Rosters are out of date. Still no stats. Rankings menu doesn’t show map differential. It would also be nice to see more for live games, like map scores/maps played. Aside from that, it functions well enough for game schedules and watching games.
Frustrating bug 1/5
Please fix the video repeat bug
Great, but missing ONE thing... 4/5
I wanna see the map differentials in this app. The win/loss ratio, as it’s displayed now is awesome, but when 3 teams are about to be tied for a third place slot in playoffs, I’d love to be able to take a look at the map differential to see who has the best shot.
It’s nice that they go over this on the broadcast, but it doesn’t help me when I’m sitting around with friends through the week discussing matches and playoffs and want to reference the map differentials while we’re discussing.
That’s the only reason I rated this 4 stars. I feel like that’s a critical piece of information that is missing.
Streaming Glitchy (Tracer-like) 2/5
Really would like to watch games, but it is far to annoying to do so and therefore making this app practically useless to me. Every 30 seconds or so the video will jump back about 2 seconds and it does this throughout the video for any and all videos.
Do not update. Air play removed 1/5
Don’t update to the latest version, they removed the airplay option. Luckily one of my devices I haven’t updated.
By Peyton Roth
Great app and Devs! 5/5
App has come along way, besides a few bugs and things hear and there that are totally deal-able it works and looks great! They've updated it constantly with the suggestions made e.g. Changing the standings to show both overall and stage and map differential.
IT IS AMAZING 5/5
By bobobo oo. ovovovovovo
It is amazing the Overwatch league app helps me stay up-to-date on games it is well stabilized even on the overwatch game it helps me get better by watching how the pros play
Please add Contenders 3/5
I’d like for there to be at least schedule information about the different region’s match date for Overwatch Contenders. Other sports apps follow different leagues or related tournaments, so it would be nice to see that with this app. There are currently no other apps that have info on Overwatch Contenders.
I used to use it but now it crashes on mobile every time I try and open it. My phone is an 8 and I have latest IOS installed.
Good but major bug 4/5
Originally it was a great app, but with the latest update, I can’t even open the app. Every single time I open it, it just crashes. Could you pls fix blizzard?
App is great- note for developers 5/5
By Rachelle de la Soul
I am unable to search for this app from the App Store.
While attempting to download this app I entered the following search queues: “overwatch league” “OWL overwatch” “overwatch” and it did not appear. I had to google search and find the download page from my browser.
Using iPad Air 2 with WiFi and 4G.
App switches to use LTE even though I have WiFi assist off. Used all of my data for the month without knowing this was being done. Go into your settings and turn off LTE usage for the app itself to stop it from turning your WiFi off.
Needs an auto lock override. 4/5
Video quality is great by it’s pretty annoying seeing the screen go dark all the time.
Good app 5/5
It’s a good app to help keep up with the league. Should have a widget function so you don’t have keep opening the app to look up scores, or see who’s playing who.
Great App 5/5
This app is really useful if you are into the Overwatch League. Highly recommend it.
Pretty good 4/5
Not perfect but pretty good.
Great app for watching OWL 4/5
By The Milk Guy
This app is almost perfect! I gave it a 4star because of things that keep happening to me. 1. App won’t start up, keeps crashing. 2. Lots of lag. Pls fix these.
Great app but update the rosters 4/5
The rosters are not up to date. By other then that it’s great.
Not working on iPhone 6 2/5
It crashes every time I attempt to open the app. When the app used to work, it was pretty good and I used it every match day. Now I can’t use it at all.
Good but.... 4/5
Every time I try to open the app it crashes. I will actually be allowed in about 5% of the time but when I do get in the app is great. I just want Blizzard to fix the crashes getting into the app and sometimes when I use it.
Really Bad Streaming Issue 2/5
My dorm WiFi’s pretty inconsistent, so video streaming with this app does something really annoying. Instead of just pausing and buffering, it’ll go back a few seconds and repeat whatever I just saw and heard, sometimes up to like 6 times! (Also it’ll buffer too -,-)
Other video streaming stuff on my phone can be pretty bad too, EXCEPT for YouTube. Somehow YouTube streaming always goes perfectly fine no matter how bad the dorm WiFi gets.
If you can PLEASE fix this so I can watch the matches again, I’d appreciate it!
Great but one idea 5/5
A option to have a notification for every first match of a day since they all happen in session.
Constantly having to reinstall 2/5
This app works great- when it actually works. This is the sixth time I’ve had to completely delete the app from my phone and re-download it; which is a pain when all I want to do is receive notifications when my favorite teams are playing. If I use almost any other function of the app, it crashes perpetually. This time I’m going to re-enter my info (for the seventh time) and keep it closed for good so I can just get the alerts. I love the overwatch league, blizzard, please just fix the app!
Pleased but have had issues logging in 5/5
Since the new update came online, I haven’t been able to log in to the league app on my phone. Help please!
Good but needs work 3/5
Really good app and love watching the league. Just a problem with crashing. I have deleted and redone loaded the app multiple times and sometimes when I close my phone while on a video it will make the app crash and the only way I have found to fix it is delete it and redownload.
Love it! 4/5
By Cocoa tycoon
Love this app. Keeps me up to date on when my favorite teams play. However the last couple of weeks I can’t open it at all. It immediately crashes!! Please fix!!
Huge bug 2/5
Ok so I watched overwatch league for the first section of season one and then when I went to watch it again the app crashes every time on the title/Loading screen. It uses so little data when streaming but this bug literarily made the app impossible to use, help me if you know how to fix it. ONE OF MY TOP APPS, I love it but if I can’t use it what is the point.
App won’t open 1/5
By Chester P. Runk
I liked this app except for the mirroring bug. But now the latest version won’t even open. It crashes every single time. iPhone 6+
Great app terrible crashing 2/5
By Shariah shahs
While the app itself is great ever since the latest update the app crashes on launch and I have to keep reopening it until it doesn’t crash after about 5 or 6 tries
Rewind Issue 3/5
By A Nitrome fan
It’s a great app, for all of a sudden, whenever I’m watching the vods, the video seems to rewind a second or two backwards even though the video timer keeps going forward. That rewind thing happens like 5-6 times in the span of a minute and it’s extremely annoying to deal with, especially when it happens during the middle of a big fight. I might just stop using the app if it doesn’t get fixed soon. Which is a shame, because I really love Overwatch and enjoy watching all these pro-level teams fight. Please fix this rewinding issue.
Kinda bummed out, got the newest update today and now app won’t even open. Dallas has been on a hot streak and wanted to see the Seoul match.
By Not particularly happy
The app crashes on boot something like 9/10 times.
Keeps crashing 1/5
The app just won’t start. Keeps on crashing after the last update
Last update won’t let the app open anymore 1/5
Loved using this app until the recent update that doesn’t allow the app to open anymore.
Force stop while logging in 3/5
Each time i log in, it force stop by itself. Please try to fix this problem
Updates made it better!! Okay but not great 3/5
I am loving OwL, and the app has been awesome for keeping up with the schedule and looking at teams. But the app has struggled a bit in my opinion. At first the streaming was terrible (skipped in places, repeated itself) but then they embedded the Twitch stream, which has been great, really steady and reliable! My only remaining concern is because there isn’t an iPad version of the app, which is how I prefer to watch matches, when you’re watching a match, it doesn’t tell the iPad to keep the screen on (like other video services do), so the iPad times out and screen turns off. I’d rather not change my iPad settings to have the screen never shut off just for this one app. I hope eventually they fix this smaller issue, too.
Update: this has been fixed for live BUT STILL NOT FOR VODS, which are now unavailable on YouTube, so VODs can’t be watched on iPad. Good things with this update: They added in the schedule tab that it auto scrolls to today’s date, which is wonderful, and there is a link to earn viewership rewards. It does stink to have to go to the separate window to log in for those, but not too big a deal. Please make an iPad version, with full support for watching the VODs without screen timeout!
