[PC] The Career, Social, and Options pages are glitchy.

PTR Bug Report
It's like it's trying to show the main screen on pages like the icons page and your statistics page. It's a weird glitchiness. The Social and Options pages have the same issue.
I'm also having this issue
It seems this has expanded to the screen for setting up arcade matches too. The menu flickers enough to be unusable.

I'm on a AMD CPU Quadcore with a Radeon RX560 video card (4GB Video Mem, 8GB System memory) Windows 10. This machine is more than capable of playing overwatch right now (playing with a substantial amount of eye-candy on and got a good framerate)
Same here, won't go away when I restart the game.
I'm also having this issue. The background scene from the main screen keeps flashing on other menu screens (Career Profile, Finding Game). It's really unsettling. Have never had this issue in the live version of the game.

Here's a recording of it flashing: https://plays.tv/s/LWDPGY5NcIi9
Here's the image that is showing through: https://prnt.sc/hd5asd
Was just searching the forums wondering if it was just me. Having the same issue. Atleast im guessing this isnt an issue related to hardware as I highly doubt we are all running the same equipment lol


I have an FX 8350 and an r9 280.
Yeah looks like the current background of choice for the current desktop for the game.
ohh boy thanks ... not my GPU ... same here on Geforce GTX1500TI
Also having this issue.
Wanted to check out the new map on PTR.

The flashing is gonna give me a seizure.
I also have this, at least two other friends do as well.
I experience this issue as well.
I also have this issue. Although for me it looks like the backlot of Hollywood's map flashing in the background of my screen while in match-finder. Also glad to know it's not my graphics card.

I would say so too... considering this gaming grade laptop I got about a month ago brand new.
Same flickering issue here.

Main main (hover effect): https://gfycat.com/gifs/detail/SelfreliantRareBurro

Match type selection (hover effect): https://gfycat.com/gifs/detail/GleamingSpeedyBabirusa

[not sure what is relevant]
OS: Windows 10 (currently up to date)
Processor: AMD FX(tm)-8350 Eight-Core Processor
Graphics Card: ASUS TURBO-GTX970-OC-4GD5
It looks like every translucent overlay. If you hover over a menu option you'll see that the glowy particle effect you get on hover is also flickering.
Add me to the list.

OS: Windows 10 Pro Version 1709 (OS Build 16299.64)
CPU: AMD FX-8370
GFX: MSI GTX 1060 Gaming X 6G (NVIDIA Driver 388.31 - Latest)
RAM: 32GB Corsair Dominator DDR3

Does not happen on Live, same exact flickering as depicted by erika above me.
I'm having an issue with the screen flickering too
Everyone who has said what their CPU is so far has said they have a FX-series or 'AMD quadcore'

If you have this issue, please can you post with your CPU model? If you're unsure what it is, you can type in the search 'system information' or 'dxdiag', and look for 'processor'.


This is how mine looks.
