So. Lets talk about the Pink Mercy skin

actually, the pushback comes from a very few folks, and quite often their motivations (as declared by them) is to ensure the continued “uniqueness” of their purchase, even though most folks would not see nearly 900 thousand instances of something as being “unique” in any way

and - there has still been no valid data presented that supports the original claim of a “majority”

actually, no such statement has been made

You still seem to think people find this topic annoying because of your false assumption of people wanting the skin to remain rare

There are people like that, but most people are just realistic and know it’s not coming back. You might think my points are stupid, but that very claim of the reason you think there’s pushback is idiotic

an assumption?

not at all

many forum members in many Pink Mercy threads have openly declared this to be their reason

anyone who “knows” it is not coming back are unfortunately confusing opinion with fact

Its fine if one states that they believe it isnt coming back. There are many forum members on both sides of this fence

however, there is no way to legitimately know that it wont be coming back, and as such statements of this sort are never legitimate…always opinions stated as if they are facts, when they actually are not statements of fact

I ask that the personal attacks cease

While it may be true that it could come back(may because I’ve been told they’ve confirmed it isn’t but I can’t confirm that that is true), that’s just not realistic. It ain’t coming back unless there’s an overwhelming demand and then the legal stuff permits it on top of that.

The first thing just isn’t happening and the second thing probably wouldn’t happen because Blizzard’s reputation being in the gutter and all. That’s the realistic viewpoint.

A more realistic request would be a new charity skin being created rather than requesting Pink Mercy.

I appreciate you recanting and stating that it is actuallly possible it could come back

Claiming to have inside knowledge without any credentials or evidence of same is however at best inadvisable. I could as easily claim to be the supreme ruler of the universe, and of course, I’d offer no credentials or evidence of such as well.

(Mind you, I am absolutely not making such a claim. this was as an example only)

I’m fine with anyone claiming it is unrealistic to feel it will come back. There are certainly many forum members who feel this way. I however dont feel this is the case, and the same with many other hopefuls

But those who believe it can come back are well within their rights to keep discussing it here - an overwatch topic on a forum dedicated to discussion of overwatch topics

I’ve already explained why I dont see this as more realistic, or realistic at all for that matter

They are within their rights and I’ve not said otherwise

I’ve just said it’s annoying and nobody cares. Rude but true

Can we not talk about this, actually? I have been seeing pink mercy threads spammed almost daily since the skin came out, im weary of it.

actually, let’s not talk about the skin

i don’t believe pink mercy should come back. i believe there should be a new skin for another hero that promotes BCRF like that one fanmade brigitte skin.

the reason why i don’t believe it should come back is not because of my assumed selfishness for the players who got it and deserve it to be limited, but it’s for the selfishness of other people that say “we want the skin back so we can donate to bcrf!” when in reality they only want it because it’s a cute pink skin for a girly hero. they don’t actually care about the charity and if they did then they would pay the charity on its website.

but honestly, you can’t really blame them. humans are selfish beings who basically only care about themselves. but that’s also something to blame them about. their selfish. they selfishly want the skin itself instead of caring about the women or men who are suffering with it. i have breast cancer in my bloodtree myself, i have a high risk of having it when i’m older and my mom even had it, so she had to get rid of her things.

i don’t like living in a fear sometimes of “i can die from this cancer” while seeing people say that “i support it!” when they will only pay for it if they receive something in the end which is BEING GREEDY. doing that is not a nice act, but it is a corrupt act. it’s definitely a good deed to do but the motivation behind it is corrupt which doesn’t make it nice.

i don’t care if the skin gets released again, i really don’t, i just need to shed light on the reason behind this

I find many topics here annoying

But admittedly, every forum member who ever posted such a topic had a right to do so.

when one comes here, one accepts the wheat with the chaff, so to speak…and my chaff is another forum member’s wheat.

So…I tend to simply stay out of them, and that results in overall less annoyance for me

Tho every forum member has a right to engage in any thread they wish, and I would never deny that to anyone, but…thats what helps me avoid annoyance for the most part.

Take that as you will.

actually, no

plenty of folks care

myself most certainly included, as evidenced by my statements here

and those of many many others in this and other Pink Mercy threads

People should stop asking for it because it is not going to come back. Ever. The constant begging is copium. Stop it. Get some help. Grow up. The End.

Spam doesnt appear to me as discussion.



…we could accept that this is an Overwatch-related topic being discussed on a forum explicitly created for discussion of Overwatch related topics?

so yes, it will continue to be discussed, same as other OW-related topics that I am not interested in but you and others might be will also be discussed

one must understand that these forums are not all about what any one person wishes to be discussed - and/or not discussed

actually, there are times when we go weeks without a thread on this topic beign created

it has been rare in the extreme when we have seen more than one in a day

I’ve provided some advice in this regard elsewhere in this thread. See post 50.

One should however understand that there are many other forum members here, and many of those have made it clear that they are not weary of this topic

For me, the selfishness is on the part of those who ask that the skin not return. “I want my uniqueness” is often cited, even when knowing there are nearly 900 thousand copies of the said “unique” product

This has already been fully discussed on many other Pink Mercy threads, but the motivations of the buyer dont actually matter whatsoever.

The dollars from a buyer who cares about the charity spend exactly the same towards finding a cure as the dollars from a buyer who only wants the skin.

and more dollars provided to fund the effort to find the cure is really and actually all that matters here.

For me, the selfishness is on the part of those who ask that the skin not return. “I want my uniqueness” is often cited, even when knowing there are nearly 900 thousand copies of the said “unique” product

I have cancer of multiple types in my bloodline, so I can sympathize with that part of your statement

However, BCRF and other charities accept and understand that there are people who require recompense to donate. By working with this group, they gain additional funds over and above what they’d get by just accepting from those individuals who donate with no need for recompense. BCRF and other charities themselves accept this – they dont chastise or make derisive remarks about those individuals.

So why do some forum members act like those folks are somehow vile or despicable? I find this to be a sad thing

actually, the skin will return when and if Blizzard decides it will, no matter how many forum members declare this can never occur

there’s been no begging

this is a legitimate request for a legitimate product form forum members legitimatel willing to pay for it

I ask that personal attacks cease

not at all.

this is a legitimate OW topic that will almost certainly continue to be discussed here - a forum explicitly set up for the discussion of OW-related topics

except…this topic isnt spam

it hasnt ever been spam

The statement, in regards to whether it would be brought back in the recent re-runs of OTHER limited skins, was “there are no plans AT THIS TIME to bring it back”.

Setting expectations that it would not be brought back with the other skins, not that they would NEVER bring it back.

I know a lot of people would like to think this is some sort of closing on the subject, but it was just a response to people asking about it for these re-runs.

I would also like to remind everyone complaining about spam that this thread was started by someone suggesting alternatives, not asking for the skin to come back. The last pink “bring back!” mercy thread was about 2 weeks ago.


No, they he did not say “at this time”

I stand correct then, but there’s still no implication that this is the only and final response. It’s in a thread about the rehash events and in response to an inquiry about said events.

I was wrong about the wording though. So point.

Oh hey, it’s a Pink discussion thread again. And it has the same arguments as every other thread regarding it.

So I’m here to say that Sugar Plum and Seolbim are two of the most gorgeous Mercy skins. No matter what anyone says, I really love the wings being yellow on Sugar Plum.
