Got a few legendaries already. Opened about 10 loot boxes. Very happy I got the Zen skin.
The CTF is trash yes but Im glad its only here for the event. I really don't see any way this could be implemented as a permanent game mode.

I'm not really sure if it's true or not, bit I just can't shake off the feeling that some heroes (Tracer, Reinhardt and Roadhog, for example) get a lot more skins and shit for events than others.

Oh, and I guess I owe Hammerbro an apology since he's been right about the event thing.

You'd be correct on that front. I think Tracer has had a skin with literally every event barring Halloween? Reaper has only had one.

Reaper also got the Lich-like skin for Christmas. The heroes who got really shafted are for example Junkrat, who admittedly at least got a legendary (although so did Roadhog and he now gets his third), or Widowmaker who only got an "epic" skin in the form of a shitty recolour during Summer Games.

I know when I go through all the cosmetics for the heroes they all have approximately the same amount of unlockable stuff (give or take maybe 2) but it sure as hell doesn't feel like it.

Right, Widow. I still think she has a Halloween skin even when she... doesn't. I'm still shocked she didn't receive one.

Yeah, there has been a lot of complaints about the disproportionate amount of new skins certain characters get. Tracer having the most skins makes sense considering she's the title mascot. Widow, Hanzo, Genji, and Sombra have the least amount of skins atm. But I don't really count Sombra because she's the newest character.

You better not have D.Va's! I'd be so jealous with your luck.

So if CTF can't be the new game type will we ever get another?

Rant time.

I'm so damn salty about D.Va's nerfs. A 300 armor/300 health change would have been fairer than what we got. She has one of the biggest hitboxes in game, the biggest headshot hitbox, and two hard counters even before the nerf in Zarya and Kaplan's fucking waifu, Symmetra. My mech gets melted down like an ice cube on a summer sidewalk by anyone with half a brain yet Blizzard still thinks I'm a diving tank? Lol. Delete the damn character if you're so intent at making her ineffective.

It's cool fam.

I'm not so petty I want to go "HAHA, I TOLD YOU SO!" - I'm just sad more than anything that I was right.

Let me clear once again: I think more events are great, and this one is pretty cool, I have no issue with that whatsoever. Hell I love Chinese culture, so why would I?

But the fact Chinese New Year gets a whole event based off it, and Easter won't get shit? Dis-fucking-gusting. Ofc I can't prove it, noone can unless they're from inside Blizzard's Dev meetings, but it's pretty obvious this is all part of their "MUH DIVERSITY" fetish. Can't have an entirely Christian event like Easter, can we?

Agreed.

I really do not see their logic for nerfing her.

Im gonna go ahead and say yea it is definitely the fact its a christian thing. Although I think it would be cool as hell to have Winston as a giant rabbit carrying around a giant basket of eggs.

And all it takes is a tactically calculated "for the Horde" rallying the troops to make them all think "OMG she really does care!"

Are they really comparing the still pleasantly plump mei to a ripped roadhog?

Bought about 35 boxes and got most of the stuff I wanted. Sadly I didn't get red Mei which is the one I wanted the most(got purple three fucking times).

Currently sitting on 4k and I'm debating whether to use it on red Mei if I don't get it before the 13th or holding onto it for the next event which will likely contain a 3k Widow skin.

And just after posting this I got one of those rare no-ult Mercy potg's to show off the highlight with.
