So, I notice this topic coming up a few times in the forums. The majority wants to have the skin available for purchase, not in loot boxes. While a few holders of the item say “It’s an exclusive to those who pre-ordered the game.” but fail to mention “Even though you can buy it on e-bay for an extremely high price.” which, in my opinion, is making your statement invalid. Because THOSE people didn’t pre-order the game, they just have enough money to spend upwards of $80.00 for a skin. Some people go into a game store and can find a copy of the overwatch origins edition with the widowmaker pre-order bonus inside the box. They did not pre-order the game, yet have the skin. So… in conclusion… As a holder of the skin on Xbox but not PC. Maybe… Make it an exclusive, but Account bound instead of Platform bound. That way those who bought it already aren’t out of their money; the ones who switched from one platform to another aren’t out of their exclusive item; and the ones who want it now. and never pre-ordered the game but just really want the skin… can continue to cry about not having it.
Problem solved, everyone is happy. (just not the latter)
