My 2nd was that Blizzard has called it a legacy skin. Until that changes, it’s not coming back.
You really like twisting words, don’t you?
I was talking about making all the boards, expecting Blizzard to bring back the skin just because you want it.
Until that changes, it’s not coming back.
“I want it”
Nothing is stopping you from donating.
Seriously, can you please stop shoving words into people’s mouths? It’s like you grab onto one word and can’t possibly think of another one to replace it with, despite people saying it’s wrong. So you just keep throwing it, hoping it will stick…
I legit can’t believe people would use the excuse as wanting to donate to a charity as an incentive to get the skin, when they could just donate to the charity regardless… yikes.
Another instance of “if I keep saying it, maybe they’ll believe me!”
You know what’s worse than not having Pink Mercy? Having it but not being able to use it because I bought it back when I played on PS4 and then moved to PC long after but for some reason I can’t transfer any of my limited edition skins. Just amazing
Here’s the thing, I highly doubt the BCRF would even want to make another deal with Blizzard.
A company who’s been blamed for worker mistreatment and sexual assault allegations. It would seem insincere and more of a ploy to generate good PR.
Do I personally think the Pink Mercy skin should come back? Honestly, I don’t care either way. It might be a bit more complicated then just bringing a skin back. Legally maybe Blizzard can’t. I know WoW has a similar issue with a mount. Where technically they don’t own the rights to the mount’s design anymore. So they can’t re-add it for sale in-game even if they wanted too.
I don’t even have the skin and i dont want it back. Im tired of people pretending to be someone they’re not an act like they care about breat cancer, people with ACTUAL real world problems. Once all these people admit they just want the skin and nothing else than I’ll be content in seeing it come back
actually, no matter how many forum members vociferously declare that it cant ever happen, the skin can come back; and will come back when Blizzard\Microsoft decides it will come back
further, it violates the spirit and intent of these forums to ask someone to stop requesting something Overwatch-related, as these forums exist specifically for the discussion of Overwatch related topics, which absolutely includes this particular topic
I dont see any crying here whatsoever
I see consumers asking to purchase a desired product.
this is a perfectly normal behavior, same as going grocery shopping
thats actually not what has been stated
There is no need to insult people with a legitimate desire to make this purchase.
Particularly when they’ve done no wrong, nothing “childish” whatsoever
There are actually no topics here that are “needed”
Topics are created because people have something Overwatch-related that they wish to discuss
This topic fits that mold, and as such, it is perfectly ok for threads like these to be created
again, I see no crying here; so the use of the word “crying” seems to be gettign used her simply to unduly deride/attack what is actually legitimate discussion
another unnecessary personal attack
the above is in essence a restatement of the item in question, not an answer to said question
Ive not seen anyone in threads like this one where anyone expects to get it
again, this is a legitimate request by consumers with intent to purchase
there is no selfishness here
One begins to wonder why negative and inapplicable words like “crying” and “selfish” are being continually added to this thread
I’d not be against a new charity skin beign made
not at all
this isnt a case of “or”, as in “we can offer Pink Mercy OR this new skin”
they could offer both, either individually or packaged as a set, for an even greater cash haul for charity
with the teams fully engaged in getting OW2 ready for showtime, I doubt they have the resources available to make a second skin, whereas Pink Mercy is ready to go right now
because of the larger cash haul a two skin offering would pull for charity, as opposed to offering just one or the other
nearly every thread on this topic includes statements very much like these two, and I never understand why that is so because it is irrelevant in the context of this specific topic
it is irrelevant because there are people who donate without need for recompense, and there are other people who want recompense. Donations are maximized when a charity appeals to both groups of people. Pink Mercy was (and is) created to appeal to this second group. Not the first group.
The “just donate” sentiment is an appeal that works for (and is ergo relevant to) the first group…not the second group
I find this broad-brush accusation to be absolutely deplorable
wanting to purchase this product IS NOT a declaration that one does not care about breast cancer
It’s probably because it was limited + it’s a nice looking skin. If the skin was undesirable, nobody would be asking for it. Pink mercy skin might not even be the best looking skin for mercy, there might be better ones that you can get for free.
But people want to collect every skin possible, so it’s no surprise that there’s a high demand for it. Not to mention mercy is one of the most popular hero. My first hero I mained was mercy even.
