The skin is an optional feature, and Blizzard has every right to sell it along with the Blizzcon tickets. Heck, they aren’t even selling it—It’s a perk that comes along with everything else included!
We’ve gotten limited edition skins before (Winston and Bastion), so why is it such a problem now? Besides, the skin WILL be available in the months following Blizzcon, so players who were not able to participate will have a chance to purchase it.
To all of the people who are calling Blizzard greedy, that isn’t the case. They are a legitimate company with employees, deadlines, and a schedule to keep. They have to make a profit in order to stay afloat and keep producing content! If you’re willing to buy the ticket and accept the perks that come with it, you’re basically supporting Blizzard as a company. You’re helping them pay their hard-working employees and developers, you’re ensuring that new maps, heroes, and games will be created with your donation, and frankly, that seems like a sweet deal to me.
To those who don’t want to purchase a virtual ticket, then don’t! It’s completely optional, doesn’t affect game-play, and no one will give you a hard time about it. Simply don’t pester others into “boycotting” the ticket because YOU feel that it isn’t fair. It’s as easy as that.
