After playing 60 games non-stop, I finally got the 'Held The Door ' & "Dawn Breaks" achievements for Junkenstein's Revenge. Apparently, for Dawn Breaks, you don't even need to play Endless to get that one, as you just need to beat Junkenstein's Revenge on Expert difficulty to earn it.

Bought $20 worth of boxes, got Ana and Torb's costume, along with Mercy and Reinhardt's from last year.

Bought Cultist with coins because im tired of grinding for boxes, and I also finished this.

So far, I've gotten Cultist, Dragon and (unfortunately) 80s. Still aiming for Dracula, Helsing, Dr. Junkenstein, and Witch (the last two can be purchased with the saved coins I have).

I'm currently debating on whether or not to gamble yet again or hold off. I like the Dracula skin, but I also like the Shiver skin during the Christmas event and the Plague Doctor skin you can get right now for Reaper. Meanwhile for McCree, I got his "America" skin while also looking to get his younger self skin that was during the uprising event.

Gamble on more boxes? or hold off and either get what I can get later or already have? I guess I still have a week and a half to grind to help "influence" my answer... (still don't have the skins for Mei, Ana or Torbojrn, but I'm happy with what skins I already for them already).

Nice. I got everything for Zarya, Lucio, and Mei. I was pleasantly surprised with how awesome the skins were for this event, so I'm looking forward to what the Winter Wonderland event has in-store.

I thought the Chinese Vampire was a good costume for Mei. Paired with her Halloween event emote and it's gets better

I didnt get anything worthwhile besides the newest Zenyatta skin. (I had been using Skullyatta since last Halloween.)

Didnt make enough coin to buy the other skin I wanted (80's Zaria.)

I refuse to buy boxes with real money anymore also. The legendary drop rate is pathetic, Id be throwing money away (yes, I know its throwing money away regardless...)
Fix that Blizzard, and maybe Ill throw you more money again.

Came back during the event after not playing since Ana's introduction. Managed to get a Halloween Legendary costume for a player I never use (Reaper -- and his highlight intro).

Thought about buying Mercy's witch skin, but I decided to save currency (I'm up to 2400) for the December / Christmas event (or a Winter Olympics -timed event, if they add one).

I'm going to keep playing for awhile; I've enjoyed my return enough that I'm watching the World Cup @ Blizzcon as I write this.

Wait, holy shit, this ended already?

Their events always end after the weekly reset. I had no idea it ended and planned on playing all weekend.
