I got the Zenyatta and Reaper sprays from Lucioball fairly easy, but I don't think I'll ever get the Pharah one, and it's the one I want most.

Am I the only one not digging the no/less dupes?

At least before I could get gold to unlock what I wanted.

10 lootboxes in and no event skin so far.

I didn't like it since they announced it, but I know I'm in the minority

They should've make it like in Hearthstone. You can't get duplicate legendaries in that game anymore. But when EVERYTHING is new and you get less gold it's meh.

I'm with you. Now on every box I get lots of things that I don't want and I can't get coins to unlock the things that I really want.

Yup, I absolutely hate it. I get tons of shit I don't want and zero coins to buy the things I do want. It's an awful change.

It's great for people like me who have almsot everything since I keep getting the new stuff. But I can understand it sucks if you don't have a lot of unlocks.

I've pulled like 5 legendaries since the event started all non-dupes, 4/5 also old ass skins that I never wanted. Feels bad.

I have more than 50% unlocks on every character, but when an event rolls around and there's a specific thing you want you're sol getting it unless you're lucky. You used to be able to just save coins, but after opening 50 loot boxes I only have 1k.

What do people think of Lucioball? Tried it today and was not a fan. Hard to see what's happening on the field with a first person camera, especially when you're rushing around trying to position yourself. All it does is make me want to play Rocket League.

What's the requirement for the sprays? I actually didn't check if I got the sprays.

Zen is get three saves in one game and Reaper's is get one save, one goal, and one assist in a single game. Pharah's is taking a shot while high up from a jump pad and scoring the goal.

With friends I really enjoy it as a hectic and super short distraction...but really it's too rough around the edges to be more than passable.

It's too prone to turn into a volleyball match and the hitboxes are borked, it feels like that Dark Souls 2 Pursuer Gif

I haven't gotten a single dupe in the last 10 boxes I opened. Seems like they may have swung a bit too far in the other direction.

I can't for the life of me figure out how/when the game decides to position players at faceoff. I'm goalie like 90% of the time, no exaggeration. 5, 6, 7 times in a row! Then one turn as offense then back to goakeep!

Like, I know there's no real positions but it's kinda understood by everyone to play what you're served.

Why would you complain about not getting dupes?

because if they're not generous with credit drops it makes it harder to buy things you actually want, that being said I've gotten a lot of credit drops this event and have gained like 700 credits without any dupes after like ~7-8 boxes since the event started. Of course one of those was a legendary that reset my pity timer...

I got the new Mercy skin, which is cool, but it just can't replace her Halloween witch skin.
2, the new skin has even more pantyshots and no leotard to make them look not as bad as it is

and "my servants never die" is a must have for support mains

They raised the number of credit drops in loot boxes when they reduced (got rid of?) duplicates. For me it's been sort of a win-win situation.

Im only missing about 20 sprays and voice lines from this event so I was thinking after 20 lootboxes I must either be getting all purple/gold or duplicates!

Then I realized there's a ton of profile icons :(

Still amazed that over a year has gone by and we still cant purchase these icons in game.

Had fun playing with two friends yesterday, and while it doesn't make me want to play Rocket League, it does make me appreciate the things Rocket League got right with the camera and game balance.

Got 3-4 loot boxes and bought 11. No dupes. I didn't really want anything from this event. Gonna buy Genji's Nihion skin and Ana's beach ball emote of I don't win them.

Past couple days the game has been intermittently so laggy on PS4. Hope it is resolved sooner than later.

Got seven boxes today so not a bad haul. I think I'm gonna wait a few days then get the arcade ones before opening them all up at a time.

It'll be like Christmas!
Getting dupes from the last 4 boxes. Wow, they refuse to give me Sombra's new skin from RNG.
Refuse to give it to you for free.Lol.

Yeah its nice to not constantly get dupes but the lack of dupes means less chance to buy what you want.

Got 3 legendaries from 50 boxes.

I lost more matches than I won and was carried on some of the wins by better players. Could not believe it when I got diamond rating. Never touching the comp Lucioball again, it can only go downhill from here.
