😡 Stop defending the Virtual Ticket

I think the virtual ticket is laughable. However many dollars to watch awkward gamers forced to answer questions. The gall to try to monetize this is laughable. Frankly I’m disgusted by the people who give Blizzard money for this.

It’s weird being told of what I can and can’t do with my money.

they’ve done this for 3 years. shutup about it already. yeah they give goodies to blizzcon stuff. winstons blizzcon skin is probably his best one. stop complaining for the first time in your life im sure

Good thing, there’s the extra Overwatch Panels to watch during Blizzcon huh?

I bought the ticket and I love the skin. I own all the other Blizzard games too though so I feel like I’m getting more value than just a OW skin. I also enjoy watching the event streams and hopefully they will have an awesom musical act to enjoy. I bought the virtual ticket when Metallica played and felt like I got my monies worth. Th skin is pretty awesome. Excited to see what they add on to the ticket for value. I bought the all access OW pass too and definitely felt like I got good value. For those who just want the skin I can see the uproar. But it’s just a cosmetic. It doesn’t effect gameplay at all.

Also, I just found this: NOTICE: Demon Hunter Sombra will be available outside of Virtual Ticket at a later date

Which is something they didn’t do with the previous skins.

Not to mention, what do you think the electric bill is for powering all of those servers 24/7???

An item for Lucio is worth every dollar. Not so much for many other heroes.

Maybe it only have one Overwatch related thing because it is a Blizzard Virtual Ticket, not an Overwatch Virtual Ticket. Seriously, if you don’t want to buy it, then don’t buy it. Just think about how much free content we get. What if we had to pay for every event?

I’ve seen sources say people will be able to get the skin separate from the Blizzcon ticket at a later date. Confirmed?

It’s a $40 ticket with a bonus skin and other gifts and access to game content. Stop trying to twist it towards your narrative. Stop complaining.

This aged poorly.

Exactly, we get a lot of free or close to free content. I’m onboard with having access to the event, all that other stuff AND a cool skin I’ll actually use unlike the ok-ish BlizzCon skins my before.

Edit: They gave us like 200 free tokens for OWL skins, they put up new characters fairly regularly, new maps regularly, new game modes for events, they make balance passes (whether good or not is a different argument), they put up free holiday and events which includes stories and skins, they release videos about the characters… seriously, get over it.

I’m still disappointed I didn’t get the Blizzcon Bastion skin, Winston’s was alright. I really like Sombra’s, but I feel like the Blue and White theme was cooler.

Can we stop pretending that this skin being bundled in is somehow good? I don’t care about Blizzcon, I don’t care about the Overwatch league, but if I want that skin, I have to fork over money to get a bunch of crap I don’t care about, and the only way to get that skin ever is by paying for a ticket to some event that I never cared about. You can’t get the old skins, you won’t be able to get the old skins, it’s been three years and the preorder Widowmaker skin hasn’t been made public, so they won’t make you able to get this video game content unless you pay them $49.99.

What makes it worse is that with one look, you can clearly see it is something that SHOULD be holloween content, but no, I guess demon hunting is Blizzcon themed, somehow.

Why did I get so many likes on my first reply lmao

By adding it to the ticket, it adds value to the ticket and makes the skin more valuable. Also it’s not Halloween content, it’s based on a Diablo 3 character.

Also, the skin is a bonus to the ticket. You aren’t buying the skin, you’re buying the ticket.

No, it’s a 40$ virtual Blizzcon ticket and you get a free skin if you buy it. Stop whining, you don’t deserve everything, it’s perfectly fine to give people who want to support Blizz an exclusive skin.

So don’t get it, simple. God this community is so entitled and whiny. I got a T-shirt when I flew to Amsterdam last month, how dare they charge me 400$ for a lousy T-shirt? Boycott Amsterdams tourism board.
