I can’t even make it to the bottom of this thread, so I’m just going to put this here.
Obsession might not be the proper word here but then again it might be. I started playing Overwatch late in 2019. The pink mercy skin was already gone and I do like it and want to see it come back so that I may have a chance to obtain it.
Frankly, I haven’t found anything remotely close to my wish coming true, but that isn’t to say that it may never come. Noone knows what tomorrow may bring. So someone’s want for the skin is reasonable.
I can’t speak for everyone, I can only speak for myself on this.
I do agree with some people that if you want to donate just go do it. But the skin sort of was a gift for contributing to the cause and some may see it as a show-off or boasting to everyone else. Which I understand if this is such a case.
Breast cancer runs deep in my family and I donate all I can but I don’t make a scene about not getting the skin. I also didn’t play the game at the time of the cherity going. So my loss there but who knows. No one knows for sure, now do they?
This was false. Though the shop can have exclusive/limited time offer or bundles in it. On October 4th there was no Pink Mercy. Here we are nearing the end of November and no pink Mercy. Sorry but as of this moment she is not back.
Its sad that in this thread alone over a dozen individuals - perhaps approaching 2 dozen at this point - have all declared with certainty that the skin is not coming back when (as you stated) no one can actually know such a thing.
One can guess, one can posit…but one cannot know
Statements like those just end up depriving the individual in question of credibility
You said he left out context even though the context you provided doesn’t mean the quote can’t reign true in general. It’s not always necessary to include the entire history of the post to understand the message.
It could also be seen as a broad answer to a narrow question. Blizzard didn’t restrict the statement in the way you suggested. That would look more like, “We have no plans for Pink Mercy during this event.” Instead, Blizzard has been uniform and consistent with the messaging since people started asking for Pink Mercy to return on May 22, 2018. If there’s something to be extracted from their stance on the matter, I don’t see how it would be a message of hope.
You’re so ridiculous, LOL just say you want the skin and move on. What if they do this charity again but with a different skin that’s NOT for mercy, are you still gonna keep the same energy and donate?
This sounds like a personal attack to those forum members, due to said forum members never mentioning that they do not want another charity skin to provide funds. Thus I ask that you cease these attacks.
Indeed it doesn’t mean that the statement “can’t” apply generally., but we have no reason to believe that the statement applies in general here.
It could, yes. It could also be seen as a specific answer to a specific question. Since one cannot know definitely either way there’s no reason to assume either way. As it stands the return of pink mercy remains a possibility - it could come back or it could not come back. We don’t know.
There’s no need for Andy to say that since it’s already implied by the topic.
There’s nothing to extract. Even if the statement was meant as you believe plans can and do always change.
Said forum members have stated outright that they do not wish the pink mercy skin to return.
Wishing for the skin to return and wishing for another charity skin need not be exclusive of each other.
The skin is ready to go and does not require a skin to be designed from scratch.
So anyone saying that they don’t want the skin to return, is quite literally denying funds for a good cause.
We have no reason to believe it doesnt, either. Just because it was in a thread about the remix doesnt mean it had to exclusively be about the remix. I’ll keep holding onto my hope while you keep holding onto yours.
