What challenge skins do you hope will return for the final Remix Volume? To add on further, what skins do you wish would’ve returned instead of the previous 6?
… We should’ve gotten Deadlock Ashe instead of Mardi Gras-
Honestly, I forgot this one existed until I started practicing Hanzo recently. TBH, it’s actually really good. The Orange Visor looks nice. I’m a bit surprised I don’t see it used more, now that I think about it.
Probably sym, hanzo and hog challenges. in theory Bastion Brick was supposed to be in this Remix, but probably part of the license of the skin is also from LEGO, and without his permission perhaps there is no possibility to propose it again. The same goes for Mercy Pink from the BCRF. and it was not a skin challenge, nor free, let’s stop with this theory: we have already confirmed that Pink Mercy will not be back (see Andy’s blue posts):
on the legendary skins I understood that they choose at random (I do not know that Reaper Raven is famous). they just pick the ones they like recolored. maybe not the same previous heroes, so I would exclude the legendary heroes that came out in the first two remixes.
Deadlock Ashe was released too recently, though I do hope it does make a return at some point for those that don’t have her. It’s one of my favourite in game OW skins and I see many asking for it’s return lately, but I believe Blizz is going in order of when the skins were released.
Most likely Tracer’s Comic Book (2020), Symmetra’s Marammat (2020), and this last one is a guess. I think it’ll be Hanzo’s Kyogisha that was released early on in 2021 (Jan-Feb, somewhere around there).
After that came Roadhog’s Pachimari and then I believe was Ashe’s Deadlock. There are other Special skins that came before but were skipped for one reason or another like 2018 Widowmaker’s Kerrigan skin (probably skipped since it was for Starcraft Anniversary, though I’d love to have it one day if it is brought back!).
I don’t think it’s a bad idea to bring back old Special cosmetics solely for Anniversary. That way the other events still get new challenge skins while Anniversary brings back old beloved ones for those who didn’t catch them.
At this rate, they simply cannot re-release all of the Weekly Challenge Skins in advance of OW2, so I believe that Blizzard is going to begin including them in future builds of the OW2 Beta as an incentive for participation.
Kerrigan Widowmaker skin wasn’t a challenge skin and it was strictly for the 25th Starcraft anniversary so I don’t see that one ever returning. Same with the Reinhardt 30th Blizzard anniversary skin either since both were tied to a specific once-in-a-lifetime anniversary.
There were 13 weekly challenge “mini-event” skins. The first 2 remix events have released the challenge skins in chronological release order, with the only exception being Brick (Bastion), likely due to its initial collaboration with LEGO.
The remaining skins are, in chronological order of release:
Comic Book (Tracer), Marammat (Symmetra), Kyōgisha (Hanzo), Pachimari (Roadhog), Deadlock (Ashe), and Sandstorm (Cassidy).
It’s very likely that Remix Vol 3 will be:
Comic Book (Tracer), Marammat (Symmetra), and Kyōgisha (Hanzo)
Not sure if they will try to get the last 3 skins out in one way or another. Considering it’s only 3 skins, they may try doubling-up the releases per week during this final Remix event. Much less likely, they push a 4th Remix event in the weeks leading up to OW2, or as a replacement for the Halloween event, since OW2 is considered “Early Access”.
