Paid $50 for a sombra skin and now they're giving it away for free

They said it would be available later. Everyone knew.

That’s on you.

I really think they should just re-colour the DH Sombra skin, much like what they did with the Kerrigan / Nova skins from 2018

No you paid for the blizzcon experience. The roles are now reversed

No you didn’t.

You paid $50 for access to Blizzcon 2018 and got a skin for free.

Not really no, all the years prior the items were not available on a later date.

I didn’t buy the ticket this year for that reason.

I do pity if you bought the ticket SOLELY for a single skin that they TOLD you would be released at a later date because it was an anniversary skin for D3.

I dnt think right at release they said that.

I remember it was an answer to someones question AFTER it was released.

It almost seemed like someone made a mistake in saying it, and they had no choice but to follow thru.

Main reason is because, why now? Why this skin? none other exclusives have ever been available later.

You didn’t pay 50 dollars for a skin you paid 50 dollars for a ticket, the skin was a bonus. They said they’d be giving it to players later. If you paid 50 dollars just for the skin Knowing that, that’s not on blizzard.

If you paid $50 for one skin you are why the gaming industry now thinks it is acceptable to focus on making micro-transactions before focusing on making their game good.

The reason so many games are bad, intentionally grindy and filled with micro-transactions is that stupid people will pay for things that they think will give them bragging rights instead of paying for things they think are worth their money.

Damned if you do, damned if you don’t.

For almost a year players have been complaining about it not being added in a timely manner, now that it is players are complaining about it not being exclusive despite it being advertised as ‘early access’ (for lack of a better term).

Not really calling you out OP, you’re not the first one to suggest this, but I just find it funny that there’s massive pull on both ends.

So you weren’t interested in Blizzcon at all and wasted $50 on something you could’ve got for free if you just had some patience. Blizzard said loud and clear this skin was coming.

You my friend are every company’s favorite customer…the sucker

Shhhhhhh
There There

just let it happen, I missed the previous opportunity for this skin I’m not missing it again.

OP is one of those that only buy the ticket for the skins then claim that Blizzard is selling the skins for $50. They never read the fine print or even watched the Blizzcon stages.

Last year got it for free by winning the BlizzCon Virtual Ticket by watching the BlizzCon stream in FB.

Beyond the rest of blizzcon, you paid for nearly a full year of exclusivity/early access depending on how you wanna look at it.

If you were really serious you’d be complaining about how Sombra has been trash this entire time.

You paid $50 for access to video content. You got 12 months of early access to the skin as a bonus. It is well known that it would be available at a later date. It was covered by dozens of news outlets. If you don’t like that , tough.

The people who could read or were not living under a rock that had no interest in buying the virtual ticket did so knowing the skin would be available later. To deprive them of that would be selfish.

This year the WoW skins are exclusive, so there is no expectation this time around, so if you want to feel special you can spend another $50.

You shouldn’t have paid 50 dollars for just a skin, then.

It said, clear as day, they were going to release the skin after Blizzcon. The only reason they waited till the Halloween Event is because of people like you who don’t know how to read.

this. there is some argument to be made for exclusivity, but they stated outright “this isn’t just going to be available to you”
