Wouldn’t it be great for all of us to enjoy the content we wanted but weren’t able to purchase back in the day from various War Chests?
Think about it, you maybe missed the chance because you were out of money at the time, or perhaps because you were a returning player after many months, or even years. No doubt it’d be great to see all these contents re-released for all the players who couldn’t get them, whatever their reasons.
My suggestion would go towards a sale that may go once or twice a year, where all these contents would be sold, either separately, or as bundles. One idea would be to sell Terran, Protoss and Zerg bundles, or sell War-Chest-themed bundles, where contents tied to an specific War Chest would go on sale. Waiting times for these sales should be enough to create some expectation for players to grab them.
Currently, most, if not all contents from past War Chests were removed from the game, but they still remain visible for all players. This does not make any sense to me, and it even becomes like an unpleasant reminder that plenty of us couldn’t obtain those contents back in the day (for the reasons I mentioned before).
Some may argue that, if said sale(s) would even take place first, their portraits, banners, decals or sprays, would lose their rarity, but I’d told them, that the profits from those sales would help to create plenty more contents available for us all, not to mention the money that would go to host tournaments would really be of help for people who enjoy the competitive aspect of the game (who are the majority, if I’m not mistaken). As I see it, there would be more winners if all these contents would be available for sale.
Thinking about the new possibilities for mixing and making perfect matches with plenty of those portraits, banners, sprays and decals just makes me feel excited, and many people may experience the same, instead of just using the same Augments again and again, all the time. This would make the game a tad more exciting, and it is a step closer to have an immersive experience, like having matching portraits, banners, sprays and decals, alongside future skins released, either or both for units and structures, consoles and announcers.
Finally, I made a list with plenty of portraits, banners, sprays and decals (and even a skin), which I think should be re-released (you can download the list here:
[Update N°1]: Given today’s update note release, which states no more new contents will be released for us to purchase, and that the company will now focus on Race-Balacing and Season Rolls, I feel there’s new hopes for past War Chest contents (Augments) to be re-released (read as, selling or unlocking them), so there’s new income to fill the gap of the now deceased new content sales.
Also, have in mind now that there won’t be any new contents, I think it’d be great to get past Augments, so we don’t just get stuck with the current contents.
I’ll keep replying to anyone interested on the concept, and updating it, if necessary. I’ll have my fingers crossed.
[Update N°2]: Today, a new Patch was released, and one of its features is that now Skin Sets from past War Chests are sold as bundles at discounted prices, which is something nice, honestly. Because of that, I decided to update this thread’s title, so it’s clearer to all readers (saying this because earlier today there was a small confusion about what my thread was). I’ll keep updating it if necessary at some point or another. Thanks all.
TL;DR: Would you like to see past War Chest contents (portraits, banners, sprays, decals, and emoticons) available again, for sale?
Tell us in the comments which additional Augments would you like to see re-released.
Thanks for reading.
