Do you have the account merge pending Overwatch 2 problem? Here is how to fix it and what to keep in mind.
Overwatch 2 is available on different kinds of platforms, which is one of the reasons why some people want to use their existing accounts on all of them. In order to do that, users need to link their accounts, which is a process consisting of several steps. As a result, a lot of users get the account merge pending the Overwatch 2 problem. Luckily, we have the needed experience, and our analysis helped us find the answer, so let’s dive in.
How to fix the account merge pending Overwatch 2 problem?
The first important thing to know is that this problem usually happens when a different console account is linked and merged before the one you want to play with. In other words, you have probably made a mistake along the way that has caused this issue.
Once you have completed this process successfully, you will need to confirm the merge. This will be possible by starting Overwatch using the console account.
It is worth knowing that there might be things, such as cooldowns, regarding how often you can link some accounts. Usually, you will get a warning about it, so always check your notifications. If there is a cooldown, you will not be able to link your account and could get the account merge pending Overwatch 2 problem. Sadly, the customer support department will not be able to lift those regulations.
What if I linked the wrong Third Party platform account to my Battle.net account?
Sometimes, you can make a mistake when linking accounts. Fortunately, you can always remove the connections between your Batte.net account and things like:
- Xbox Live
- PlayStation Network
- Nintendo Switch
To do that, you will need to go to the Account Management page and select “Connections”. Once there, choose the account you want to remove and select “Disconnect”. Like the account linking process, you will also get a cooldown for removing those things.
