There is an epic Sombra skin, however they are concerned with the Demon Hunter Sombra which was a 2018 BlizzCon Virtual Ticket exclusive was suppose to eventually be released in 2019 however it is now listed as a Legacy item (meaning it will likely never return to distribution).

Yeah it’s an epic. It’s pretty good

Yep, I would have bought a Blizz Con ticket otherwise.

Indeed. I obviously got it (because I attended BlizzCon) however back in November I post a very clear thread detailing this, but was still imploring everyone to get the virtual ticket.

We did get a voiceline of Sym going “So Dramatic” too…

…Wonder why that is.

But anyway… Going to play Rage 2, to get rid of a certain mode I am in.

And therein lies the problem - an explicit footnote made it sound as if it would appear later, but I bets its some nonsense tied to Diablo Immortal…

I would be happy for it to be tied to Diablo Immortal. I don’t care how I get it, I just want them to do what they say they will in their ads. Or at the bare, barest minimum offer explanation why not. It shouldn’t be too much to ask.

The reason why I didn’t buy the Blizzcon ticket was ecause they said the Skin would be made available at a later date, sometime in 2019. They teased us on the PTR with it, but as of yet, have made no further statement about it

It was retracted from the PTR because there was a huge backlash about the ticket and skin.

The skin was going for 1k on the PTR and people went crazy that it was only 1k and they bought the $60 ticket for this skin and it should only be available for the purchasers and yada yada.

It caused a controversy and I’m sure Blizzard is either trying to work a happy medium to fulfill their promise… or the skin is no longer going to be made available outside of the ticket.

They made it available at first (what I guess was a bug) and then they moved it to Legacy items and that Legacy status has transfered with the Workshop Update into the live server today.

Meaning currendly you can only see the Sombra skin if you activate the Filter “Legacy” or if you already have it.

Idk but all other Legacy skins are skins that are very very likely never return even tho I already have the skin I hope for all of you guys who don’t that it will be availble!
My hopes are just very low considering the currend situation and the silence from Blizz’s side

Yeah, still waiting for that one to come.

I didn’t wanted to buy the Ticked just for the Skin, because I wasn’t interested in the show - I only play Overwatch and HotS sometimes, HotS got dumped and it was pretty clear that nothing big will be announced for Overwatch - even wasn’t able to watch it in the first place. So, I was happy that it would come to the game later for everyone and I don’t have to participate in that money grab.

Now I’m starting to feel like it’s about to end as one of these promises that never get fulfilled.

I wouldn’t say it’s a huge backlash, considering it was common knowledge. I’m thinking it was accidently turned on, but it would help if Blizzard made a comment on it.

There were at least 30-40 threads I saw in a few days arguing about it. That was just a few days and when I would actually check the forums. This is also excluding all other social media.

And as somebody else said, it wasn’t marked as a Legacy skin before and now it is. It sounds like they’re trying to figure out what they want to do with the skin. And I doubt they would do that if it didn’t have enough controversy.

They need to release it again this year if for no other reason than to keep their word.

But I would have no problem if the only way to get it is to buy a BlizzCon ticket. That seems fair considering that’s how the rest of us got it :man_shrugging:t2:

But the best solution, IMO, to keep their integrity while also respecting both camps in the community would have been to release Demon Hunter with this year’s Anniversary and give 2018 ticket holders a blue BlizzCon skin for Sombra or any other hero like they did for 2016’s Bastion & 2017’s Winston.

I waited for this event and saved the coins only because of this skin :frowning:

Yeah +1. I really want this skin.

Add this to the list: Two voice lines

A few people complained that the skin wasn’t exclusive to their $70 ticket purchase even though it was clearly stated. If Blizzard gives into those few selfish people, the backlash of that will be nothing compared to the majority of people who did not buy the ticket because they stated it would be made avaiable in 2019.
