Overwatch 2 'stats tracking system' reportedly limited, players demand extensive stats
Developed and published by Blizzard Entertainment, Overwatch 2 is an FPS multiplayer game launched on October 4, 2022, as a sequel to 2016’s Overwatch.
Ever since its launch, the game has managed to gain millions of gamers around the world, thanks to the popularity of the original Overwatch. It is available on PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, Xbox, and Windows.
However, players have also been reporting several issues with Overwatch 2 and you can check them out in our dedicated bugs and issues tracker.
Overwatch 2 stats tracking system is reportedly limited
With that said, Overwatch 2 players are now encountering yet another problem with the game that’s further deteriorating their gaming experience.
According to multiple reports doing rounds, gamers are complaining that the stats tracking system on Overwatch 2 is limited and does not provide enough data (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9).
Here are some reports for reference:
@PlayOverwatch hey all my stats are kinda scuffed. Like my hours don’t really show up correctly and it seems like I’ve lost some? Would appreciate some help:) (Source)
@PlayOverwatch in the match history>game reports, how come we dont have at least the final stats of everyone in the match for us to look at? Itd be preferable to have more detailed stats, graphs, etc but this i would assume would be the bare minimum (Source)
Usually, FPS games offer stats such as how many games they’ve played, how many kills they have, and how many games they’ve won (besides checking the challenge progress). This helps them determine their progress.
However, Overwatch 2 players don’t have such perks as the game makers didn’t provide an effective stats tracking system. Gamers are now frustrated and demanding an extensive stats-tracking system.
Furthermore, the limited stats system also affects Twitch drops events. Since the game does not track the number of hours a player has watched the stream, they are unsure how much time is left before they get the drop.
My buddies and I have created a spreadsheet for tracking this, and just put that up on the other monitor. Resorting to that kind of thing is generally a pretty bad sign
As you can see from the reports above, some players have to track their records by either creating spreadsheets or using external timers (1, 2) so that they don’t miss out on Twitch drops, which isn’t an ideal solution.
We hope that devs make some changes and offer players an advanced stats-tracking system. Rest assured, we will keep an eye on the latest development and inform you as and when anything noteworthy comes to our notice.
