I think the gymnastics was already done - even in this thread:
Because people start to invent “context” to try to contain the inconvenient truth and make it so that there’s still some possibility “if we assume this, this and that”.
It’s the same hysteria as when a girl/a man says you “no” and then you think “oh, but if I’m in the last man/girl on Earth scenario - they would go back to me and we’ll create a family”.
There’s no logic to win against this kind of stuff, no amount of arguments will be enough and the very attempt of reasoning in such a debate dooms you to fail. The only way to win such a game is not to play it.
Andy made that statement in reference to someone asking whether pink mercy cosmetics would return for the anniversary remix event. Because some people assumed that it would return given that other limited skins were stated to return during the event.
Andy simply clarified that no, there were no plans for pink mercy to return for the event.
He didn’t say the words ‘for the event’ but that was implied due to the above and the fact that the thread was about the anniversary remix event.
Well, account trading is illegal according to the EULA, so it’s a risky business. One could buy it only to discover a ban after a while - or worse, the claim of account being stolen. I wouldn’t recommend engaging in these schemes.
