    Still haven't found a Zarya skin I like outside of the Wrestler one but those other three look great.

    I love the Soldier skin. Zarya's is...different. Maybe it's the colors that are throwing me.

    Think the 76 is one is better than what he has, but that's hardly high praise. Not keen on the others. Hope there's some more we've not seen yet.

    Edit: Oh shit, I just noticed the feet. No. Not even 76.

    I wish they'd make some more permanent content. New heroes, new maps, skins that aren't bound to events. But especially more heroes. In one year they've released what, 4 new heroes?

    In comparison, while a different game, Heroes of the Storm has a much smaller audience and less resources yet manages to put out content and heroes at a much greater pace. I'm disappointed in the OW content being just mostly events.

    I've been thinking this myself lately as well. Events are great and everything, but it's high time we got some actual content and skins that don't cost 3k.

    They've already said they won't be releasing heroes faster than this, this is their planned pace

    And hots just uses other games characters, no real creative process.

    Yeah, I was hoping the anniversary would be an opportunity to do a 'big refresh' with a load of permanent new content.

    And see, I prefer Events, I only play during them really.

    Though, the maps will be permanent and there is rumors of a new game mode, other things in the leak have come true (three new arena maps).

    Do you have any statements I could read? I wouldn't mind getting to understand their decisions on this and why they focus so much on events.

    Yeah the "main game" so to speak feels quite stale.

    Yeah I don't understand the theme of these skins.

    Nice. Liked the theme, its open some precedent.

  17. #17
    The skins look really strange. Seems like Commando 76 will keep the crown (for me, that is).

    I don't dislike events, but at the moment, it's only events. There needs to be more baseline stuff, seems many of us are at a point where a box with four dupes is the norm and getting something new is an exception.

    Kind of why I stopped playing outside of events, I'm approaching Silver board and have all the cosmetics basically so its a bunch of dupes. It would take a lot of permanent stuff to get me back outside of events though because once you get the couple they're giving with this one (sit and laugh for Sombra and Orisa) it's back to nothing but dupes.

    I actually like the Zarya skin, at least it reminds me of her HoTS skin a lil bit.
