After spending $25 on loot boxes, plus gaining several levels, plus all the free ones you got from various events...I still didn't get the two items that I wanted. I was still able to use the coins to buy Mei's last skin though. Hopefully, I can get enough to get Widowmakers win screen before it's too late.

Have work in a couple hours though...

I'm happy I ended up getting everything I wanted, barring the Sombra skin. Which was fine because It's so cheap to just buy and I made so much gold during the event anyways. I did spend $20 on Loot Boxes though, which was a mistake. I've learned my lesson.

The only legendary skin I got was Tracer's four times :( I wanted Mel's and Winston's but they are just too expensive lol

At least I got Phara's, which is super cool

Bought nutcracker zen

2 boxes later



learn from my mistake

I'm actually afraid to play any more during the event in case I get that skin. I just bought it and Roadhog's.

So, this event went live yesterday for 2020. Kinda unimpressed with the skins this year, minus this cool one for Hog:


Reminds me of Clayfighter for some reason 😂 It’s like looking at MK mocap actors from the 90’s (Sonya at 50 excluded) that have let themselves go.

2020 skins are probably the worst I ever seen in OW. WTF blizzard? Penguin Meme and... whole lot of nothing? Pass.

They’ve kinda gone dark on Overwatch 2? I would think that would be a slam dunk for starving next gen owners.

Yeah, OW2 is MIA, just like OW1 support. They are doing something behind the scenes, but we have no new info unfortunately.

Mixed bag mostly for the better imo. The Roadhog epic for the week 3 challenge looks so good it should be a legendary. The other epics for the weeklies look barely above a color swap.
The Rein and especially the Zen legendaries look great. I haven't checked if the facial expression on the monitor changes depending on your actions for Zen. The Rein one looks like a good cross between a train conductor and a knight. .. I like the Torb one a bit too. Subdued but the different colors and especially the flannel shirt sells it. Not a top Torb skin but a good addition. Moira legendary is w/e and the Mei penguin skin... looks a little too conflicted. Too many lines and sharp angles where there shouldn't be. Detracts from the cuteness.
