Overwatch’s loot boxes were the least egregious ones, in my opinion. You always got something from them, never a risk of getting nothing, all cosmetics, in game currency in exchange for any duplicates, and you could get them for free just by playing the game.
Now that’s been replaced by a blatant cash-grab.
I hope everyone that complained about the loot boxes is happy with the utterly rubbish replacement system we have now! Hope you weren’t expecting to keep on being able to collect everything in the game or even getting heroes for free any more!
No wonder Jeff left.
If Blizzard went the Halo route and made it so that battle passes don’t expire and you can choose which one you want to level then that would at least take the sting out of the big slap across the face Blizzard just gave all of its loyal players.
Also, has anyone else noticed that, while most skin-related sprays on this battle pass have an accompanying skin (like Ranger McCree) there’s a couple of sprays on the pass that don’t have accompanying skins - Cyber Phoenix for Kiriko and Crime Boss for Junkrat.
I remember seeing a tease for the Junkrat skin so it’s probably on Season 2’s battle pass. Seems like they ran out of “content” for the Season 1 battle pass and had to poach a few things from future passes to pad out the levels.
