Only been getting level up boxes (maybe 5) with not much to write home about. After a few days of not playing, leveling to 17 tonight got me Track and Field Tracer! Thank you RNG Olympic Gods!

I'm so so sorry everyone.

Last box I got the 'merica McCree skin. The one before that I got this:



And now...



I am a rotten scumbag and you have every right to hate me.

Finally got everything I wanted - Tracer's Sprinter skin, Golfer 76 pose (and avatar), and McCree's American skin. It only took hours and hours of grinding, and $20 to finally get them.

So far I've got:
Sweedish Torb x2
American Mccree
Tracer's Highlight
Junkrat's Highlight
Lucio's Highlight
Zarya's Weighlifter (red)
Tracer's Sprinter (GB)
Winston medal victory
Zenyatta medal victory
Mei medal victory

And I've recently looped back around to the low levels and am at 204 so still have some fast loot boxes to come.

Dunno how many levels I've gone up. I've lost count. More than 20 though.

I'm level 65 so no way I was going to get back to 1 again. I havent gotten anything but I did get an orange drop and for a second forgot that it could still be one of the regular skins, which it was. Very unfortunate, it was a Mercy skin. Ugh.

I probably wont be getting any skins for this one.

Just promoted.... Can I save the loot boxes until the next event? Because I have both tracer skins, Genji, window maker, and both Lucio skins for the olympics. Don't really care about McCree or Zarya.

No, loot box contents are generated and fixed the moment you get the loot box.

First double legendary box :D



Took 209 levels to get there and I won't be using either of the skins...

I really wish I were a whale, opened 20 boxes I earned from playing and got neither of the items I wanted, without spending huge amounts of cash it's just not going to happen and I can't afford to. Every event will just be a disappointment because currency can't be used. I'm a sad panda.

my past 4-5 levels have been nothing but the dreaded white white blue white. still holding out hope for sprinter tracer...

I know your pain.

I just want one of the Tracer alts and Zenyatta's medal pose, not that I haven't had some good stuff so far.

Only one I really want is Lucio.

Odds are sorely against me. So far no skins and a bunch of sprays and 2 dupe victory poses

Not a single Summer Skin so far. The only thing wortwhile until now is the victory pose for Tobjorn where he hugs his turret with a Gold medal. Everything else was spray spray spray spray spray voice line spray spray

I'm only missing widowmaker, genji and tracer skins. Got everything else. I hope get one of the tracer's, don't care about widow and don't play genji anyways.

Played Tracer seriously for the first time today. Had a ton of fun.

My only problem with her so far is confusingly thinking I can use her dashes like Genji's in order to get to get verticality.

All I keep thinking now is Lucioball is delaying Mystery Hero's as the weekly brawl. Haven't seen that brawl since launch.

Would legitimately cash in my Torb epic and Lucio soccer legendary for Nihon Genji

I would even give up my American McCree I'm fucking terribad with him.

Dropped more money on boxes cuz I'm a rube.

Finally got K.Ra. Also got Tracer's summer highlight intro and Swedish Torb. My three legendaries were the same Lucio summer costume that I already got in my first summer box.

Great. But that's fine, time to rep the blue/white D.Va!

I just bought this game last night and played maybe 3 matches.

My first loot box got me the Track & Field Tracer skin and second one got me American Mccree.

Don't know much about Overwatch, but friend said that was pretty lucky.
