Blizzard allows you to change your regions in Overwatch 2 in order to play with people who are not in the same region as you or to just avoid the queue in your own region that a lot of people are experiencing these days. In this Overwatch 2 guide, we have detailed all there is to know about how to change your region for better connection.

Before we begin, it is important to note that changing to a region that is far away from you can result in bad connection. For instance, if you are playing from somewhere in Europe and trying to play in the Asian region, you will get really bad ping. This is why we recommend changing to a region that is fairly close to you … or just stick to your own region if possible.
Changing your region in Overwatch 2 is fairly simple. To begin, you need to launch the Battle.Net client on PC and go to the OW2’s page. Once there, you should see the ‘Play’ button in the bottom-left corner of the screen. Right above this button should a small ‘Global’ icon. Click on this icon and you should see a complete list of all the available regions. These include:
- America: North America, Latin America, South America, Australia, New Zealand
- Asia: South Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau
- Europe: Eastern Europe, Russia, Africa, Middle East, European Union
Once you have decided on a region that you wish to change to, all you need to do is to click on that region and it should change without any problems. However, we do recommend that you restart your client once after changing the region. It is all pretty simple!
