The newly launched Overwatch 2 has taken the gaming world by storm because of its fun and immersive gameplay experience.

The first-person shooter game is playable on PC as well as multiple consoles like PlayStation, Xbox, and Switch for free.

However, the uneven matchmaking system is negatively impacting the players’ experience at the moment.

Overwatch 2 Matchmaking range too broad

Many Overwatch 2 players are disappointed with the Matchmaking functionality as they feel that the MMR range is too broad.

Is it just me or is the matchmaking ass at the moment?
It feels like there’s way too much varying skill levels per game.

According to reports, the game is mismatching differently-levelled players in competitive matches. For instance, the Silver-ranked players are being matched with those who are Diamond-ranked.

Players feel helpless because they find themselves in a lobby full of players who are significantly better. This quickly results in them getting dominated and losing MMR.

Therefore, those affected want the developers to tighten the MMR range for matchmaking so that the gameplay remains balanced.

Demand for Competitive Crossplay

Apart from the MMR range issue, players are also not able to play Competitive Crossplay with their friends in Overwatch 2.


Wait what????? Can’t play comp games with friends from PS5?????? What???? Unnistalling now, what a waste of time

While PC players are able to play alongside their console friends in different modes like Quick Play, Arcade, and Custom Games, this isn’t the case with the Competitive mode.

This was done to ensure fairness but players are disappointed as they are unable to queue in Competitive lobbies with all of their friends.

We hope that the team acknowledges the issues where Overwatch 2 Matchmaking range is too broad and Competitive Crossplay does not allow PC and console players to team up.

As always, we will be keeping an eye out on the issue and update this article once we come across more information so stay tuned.
