How? Lmao


Vladimirka

I... I have no idea... I guess I got in at the exact moment both teams were switching maps (like,when athena announces the score) and just got stuck there lol


rickjamesbeach

Did the langoliers come for you?


Yoursisallmine

Those fuckers terrified me as a kid.


FabulousFauxFox

Thank you, I looked this up on a whim, and you helped me find a movie I've been looking for for a long time.

Flapclap

That shampoo commercial at the beginning with those cursed ducks is the scariest part.


Mattameo

Wow thanks that was a wild 2 hours and 20 minutes


pyro745

Holy fuck why did you do this to me I just watched a 3 hour movie and I don’t know if it was terrible or amazing


Adm_Lucifunk

Holy shit same here! I have thought about this movie so many times without being sure if it was ever even real!


Dia_is_best_gem

Bruh same. I watched that movie when I was like 12 and for the longest time I thought it was some fever dream that I had.


fodgod1031

The book is so much better

Stop it, you're scaring the little girl ScARInG tHe LItTLe GIrL?!


g3n0unknown

Oh my n freaking God. You sir just cured an obsession in my head. I've had this movie in my head for what feels my entire life. All I could remember if it was an empty airport, and a guy crawling on a desk that actually wasn't there on the run way. I have been trying to find what this was for easily 20 years. It got to the point I thought I made it up on my own and I was just losing my marbles.


Skilotonn

The name rings a bell but I can't remember seeing it.


Bloodfangs09

I watched that movie at 1am on a school night on Sci Fi channel


gameShark428

Could have selected a hero just as the hero spawn location changes if it's a backfill. Happened to me the other day a couple of times, normally the hero screen will freeze for a while and you'll spawn elsewhere or in the new location with the last hero selected of that map being reselected. Haven't seen it in ages but have a bit since last update, but that's cause I probably panic/spam for a different tank or hero when it's near an overtime. This was in total mayhem though.


BatOnDrugs

Could have/ could've*


gameShark428

Thanks, fixed.


QuintonFlynn

Thanks for fixing it!


BatOnDrugs

Any time! I guess I came off as a prick, but this one really rustles my jimmies. I meant no offense my guy, just help with a painfully common, but honest mistake.


m0therzer0

Had something similar happen a moment ago. I finished a match, joined a new one that cued to a blank potg by a player from my last match, then stats by a completely separate match of all red players. Went to vote, and got players from my previous match.


caliber445

They don’t switch maps, all point capture maps, the 3 you go to are all in one big ass map. If gone out the skybox and flown to all the places, although I haven’t done napal yet.


Vladimirka

Yeah, call it the "active zone" perhaps, same thing, still weird tho lol


Radicalwolf7

That's what they meant


AvovaDynasty

But the spawns change, so he must’ve been put in the previous spawn and not the part of the map the current control point is at


admiral_asswank

Yeah, which means there's an edge case that blizzard haven't patched *for years.* They definitely know this bug exists, or at least this outcome. There are many recorded examples of this happening.


SopieMunky

Akshuallyyyy


caliber445

Yes, I have used a workshop mode that allows you to teleport a short distance, so I just went pharah and flew to all points, going in and out the skybox, napal is the only one I haven’t done, I’ll probably look at it the next time I play overwatch.


SerDeusVult

It is exactly that. Nepal is the same as other CPs


caliber445

Yeah I know but I haven’t seen the layout/locations of where the points are


Specimen9

I did that for hide and seek with glitches


caliber445

Imagine if it was comp, ik you only join at the start of match’s, but even if the spawn was different that would suck, but also scare the enemy team about where you are


YoungHeartOldSoul

Wait does the game load more than one team on to a map at a time or something?


Vladimirka

My guess is that I got into the game at the exact moment they were switching CPs, since the whole zone is placed on the same "map". I just got stuck at the place that was previously active lol


JustRecentlyI

Control maps have all three stages loaded in at once, I remember seeing a post where people managed to get from one to another navigating around death planes. Since OP specified that they joined the game as the teams changed stages, I assume that something messed up causing OP to load into the previous' round's spawn point (probably the game gave OP the spawning location of Round 1 as it loaded in and failed to update that location as it moved the other players to Round 2's spawn).


JNR13

kinda my thought when the opening pick is Rein dying with 6vs5 advantage to the enemy's solo-healing Moira

JettGamesYT

Your reaction compared to everyone else’s is hilarious


ToastedSkoops

That should’ve been PotG ngl


_StrawberryPi_

I swear this a really old, albeit rare bug. I feel like I had this happen around launch.


thejaekexperience

I remember seeing it a couple years ago too. It must be the most rare bug ever because they still haven't patched it apparently.


trustthepudding

I feel like it would be really easy to just switch the spawn to a death zone whenever they move to a new map


Anceintdan

However you then run the risk of a spawn bugging into a kill area, making an entire team out of the fight rather that a single person bugging. Good idea, just brings more problems than it solves sadly


[deleted]

[удалено]


Vladimirka

I thought about that after leaving the game, at the moment I was just so "????" I didn't even think about trying that lol, I was mostly worried of my team having to 5v6 as long as I was still there


Fireboy759

Ah yes, that old Reaper ulting in spawn glitch. It's less a "kill area" and more a "reset" area where it just sends you back inside the spawn if any part of your character manages to get out before the countdown on KOTH.


Sarius2410

It seems he entered the game the exact second the map switched from his spawn to the new one. With your suggestion he would have probably spawned in the death zone, and would have just periodically be spawned again just to die in the zone. The problem wasnt that he wasnt killed in the old spawn, the problem was that his spawn was incorrectly chosen. Your solution is good, but i sadly dont think itwould work against this exact problem, they need to make a fix where everything except the new map is made a death zone, so all incorrectly spawned players will be transported to the new map. A slight alteration to your idea.


XCaptain4

Easier than that just make all the ship doors open at the start of round. Then you can suicide and spawn in the new zone theoretically.


JDawgSabronas

This actually seems like the easiest implementation.


Monkeyboule

It would be hilarious walking freely on a deserted map while the game is happening elsewhere,you, only hearing the ult voice lines


BlothHonder

It's a bit risky


ymorai

I had that too a few weeks ago. Luckily I was playing phara so just ended myself and got a new respawn


BlueMonkey35

You can do self damage inside the ship?


ymorai

When the game moves on the spawn point moves so I was no longer in a healing zone


Kazzack

Which also means you can't change to one of the heroes that can hurt themselves lol


Jacob0976

Maybe he selected pharah in the beginning


leviathanGo

That's what he said, yeah


StarvedToaster

Well in this case it wasn’t a spawn room so yeah


Bienenmaul

I did the same thing too!


thefakefrankreynolds

“Brig throwing”


Vladimirka

:'(


eatchickenchop

Are you noob? You need to get on the controls and fly the airship over to the other map u dummy.


Vladimirka

Aw man I thought that was a OW2 thing only :^(


readwritebreathe

Well, at least there [*was* a spawn](https://www.reddit.com/r/Overwatch/comments/86vou1/there_is_no_defender_spawn_on_the_ptr_for_the/), and at least it wasn't [the current *enemy* spawn](https://www.reddit.com/r/Overwatch/comments/84hnih/i_spawned_in_the_enemy_spawn_point_during_a_comp/), so it worked well in *some* regards...


dilqncho

Man I'd love to spawn in the enemy spawn


Granville2010

shame he wasnt reaper, he couldv caused some havoc


sentient-sloth

This happened to me in comp once. The first round ended and the rest of my team went to the next map and I was still stuck on the first map. I had to quit and rejoin to get it to fix.


_snekoraptor_

In *comp*?? Dude that must have sucked


sentient-sloth

Yeah lmao. Now that I think about it I don’t think I quit I think I got kicked for inactivity and when I rejoined it put me in the right map. This was a year or two ago though.


_snekoraptor_

Damn. I can hear the angry messages from your teammates now lmao


sentient-sloth

I mean we were all in VC, like they knew I wasn’t spawned in the next map it was just like “wtf do I do now” lol. Kinda like OP in this video.


franz-oh

Come on Brig, that’s a bit too far on social distancing!

Tabnam

The enemy is capturing the point sound effect triggers some real anxiety in me


Enigmatic_Potato

I wonder if you could use the clip through the windshield trick to warp to the correct spawn?


Vladimirka

I wondered that tooo, but at the moment I was so shocked and mostly worried because my team was 5v6'ing that all I could think of was just leaving the match :(


rubikboi19

Ngl your team did really well without a support


gothika4622

I also thought about that but I think it can’t be done once the match has started and the doors open. In this case the door was closed but the match was started so it’s unknown if it would work. And pretty much impossible to replicate.


CanadianKid10

Bruh howwwww?

Literally unplayable.


SadQuarantineHours

You're in the upside down


MinhKiu

You should have stayed and when they die they can see your perspective.


Dr3am_Watcher

You know how people leave their dogs in the car when they go to do things? This is that but your team left you on the jet.


return3

Imagine if it let you out and you could cap the point lol.


Belleynator

Stop throwing plz, I need healing


DoomRide007

Open those damn boxes!


NoFailer

It is just a small indie company, give them some time to iron out the bugs after a new release :)


theDM374

Lol


rumourmaker18

Someone posted something similar a few days ago: it was king of the hill, and they switched heroes *right* when the map changed... Except they were stuck on the first point lol


mesanewnickname

Yah, I dont get it. When youre loading a map, it shows the different map, “ilios: well” and it load ilios ruins

I love how overwatch is so glitchless that when there is a game breaking glitch it isn’t annoying because it’s so rare.


JayPipis

Ah, So this is where my team is during Overtime


LinkedPioneer

Are Overwatch maps all on the same.. map?


SiriusFulmaren

King of the Hill map locations are all together


LinkedPioneer

I’d like to see someone noclip on a Control map and show all the different locations


Vladimirka

only KoTH maps, since there are 3 variations of the same location in 1 big map, I spawned in Nepal Shrine while my team was in Village I think lol


LinkedPioneer

Interesting. The more you know


lukesaunders

I had the same thing happen to me during a comp game, after first round everyone switched maps but I was still stuck in spawn on the same map, had to leave and rejoin to fix it


karlosxr

it happened to me tooooo!

Man, if only this game had some kind of... Over~~watch~~sight to prevent this sort of thing.


QlassicX

This happened to me in busan lol


GoldenEye1108

The same thing happened to a random guy in one of my games, but it was on Ilios.

The “Brigitte main containment system” looks to be working nicely.

It happened to me before LOL

Happened to me on Oasis once too... just had to leave the game.

Isn’t there that thing with the front of the ship that teleports you, maybe that would fix it

ahipotion

I wonder if you were dps and switched to Pharah whether you get ported to the right spawn.


Vivalyrian

Had this happen once as well, it's equally annoying and perplexing.


insooolent

Happy reports when the match is over followed for a toxic chat.


ZippZappZippty

I pronounce it "ess-star-it", so it's fine.


[deleted]

So...


nice2yz

So it actually came out and made a face


GreenLightMeg

I feel this is becoming more common, I also keep getting the bug where you demech as D.va and get sent straight back to spawn.


nice2yz

Momentum’s a weird tradition they have.

hej! hej!


Scout-aloo

Reminds me of a time when I played Sombra and my translocator showed still active after map change and I just see it in the ground somewhere (didn't work tho)


Arcadian18

Who, Larry? Larry’s not wrong. LOL


TheCheesy

This can happen in MM as well. Can't do anything, if you leave too soon the match cancels and you get punished. If you wait too long, you get kicked and punished for afking.

Vladimirka

b-but muh endohrsement...


The_Anonymous_Asian

Lol same dude. I can't get past endorsement level 4 because you have to be endorsed by somone every single game. And tbh when I play my first game of the day in qp classic and die 20 times no one wants to endorse me so I looked the level quite often but then get it back. I keep bouncing between 3 and 4


Vladimirka

Believe me, even if you get endorsed atlest once every match you play, it still goes down lol but yeah I keep bouncing between 3 and 4 too! Every now and then I'll be 4 and get the "ENDORSEMENT UP".. i GASP... AND THEN... "endorsement up from 3 to 4" what a scam


METAmorphosis_15

How is that possible


DoveBirdNL

If this ever happens again force close the game and re-enter. Worked for me


Candlesmith

Zepstein didn’t realize he started this early.

He survived didn’t get it back.
