If you log into Overwatch before the 1st of January you get 5 free lootboxes with a total value of $4.99 for just logging in!
Yup just got mine
Strictly cosmetic, I don't get the disagrees.
To give gamers a taste of loot boxes who were not tempted previously........ Hmmm
They're obtainable by leveling up, so I'm pretty sure everyone who has played Overwatch has already had a taste for the loot boxes.
Lol 4 dislikes for the truth. Gotta love gaming places. But yeah, the simple fact that from every level, starting 1, you get a loot box, this is nothing new. Just a way for Blizz to give Overwatch players a little something for the Holidays. Like how Destiny use to give a random weapon via the Postmaster at Christmas. I'm sure countless other games do random gestures for their players too. Be it a free gift or an event that requires participation.
Blizzard gets a pass because idiots.
Yep, its all good having a go at EA, but if Blizzard are let off then it makes the people that complained about EA look like hypocrites.
idk that Blizzard got a pass. There were definitely mentions and griping about Overwatch. but if they did perhaps it's because loot boxes weren't as big of a topic over a year and half ago when Overwatch released. yes, people still complained about them but there wasn't nearly the same outrage we have today. Also, unlike EA's recent event Overwatch loot boxes contain nothing but trivial items. Sprays, Skins, Voice Lines. Also each time you level up they give you a loot box... However I do agree to some extent. Though I do recall there was definitely some griping about loot boxes and the game. Perhaps more so regarding the fact Overwatch is a F2P title that cost $60 from the jump while still containing loot boxes. As good and fun as Overwatch has been in the little I've played it over the past 6 months, there's really no reason this shouldn't, rather couldn't have been a F2P title.
Blizzard always gets a pass, and this is coming from a huge Diablo fan. They have attained almost Nintendo-like status of getting passes.
Blizzard gets a pass because they have lesbos and trannies in their game, so it's racist to complain about the things they do, or something.
hehe piss off back in line with EA blizzard. ur just a little less filthy than they are.
Trying to lure people with loot boxes of all things lol. The video gaming industry is going down the tubes. As these companies continue to promote this garbage, I'll be looking to real developers who have passion for making video games, developers like CD Projekt Red.
Considering they don't charge for new characters or maps, and the lootboxes are cosmetic which you can also earn by leveling up or using in game earned currency i really don't get how they're "luring". Last time I checked CD Project Red charged for dlc.
yeah i did it and to no surprise no skins at all
Surprise!! I managed to get a Young Genji skin out of my last box. woo!! yeah, I don't even use Genji. Hanzo time!! I've obviously got some boxes from leveling and got the Gold Box + ? boxes from the Twitch/Amazon Prime deal last year so.... in what little I have opened. Yeah these are typical boxes where there's almost no chance of actually pulling anything that interesting. Even if you pull a skin it's some stupid green one that looks worse than the default. I don't know anyone could spend cash on these cosmetic items. Even if some of them are pretty sweet.
Just like a good crack dealer. First hit is free...
