    Imagine being so autistic that you had to buy every single basketball jersey of every single basketball player from every single team.

    What a nightmare.

    I do like the idea, I think it's a great way to support people etc.

    But as a collector this is a nightmare, as I have to spend 1200 euro to get them all That's too much

    The thing about your second idea though... what would happen when the roster changes? I think it is better this way since they wouldn't have to scramble to rework things if, say, xQc gets dropped for another tank player. Unique visuals based on the team, i.e. D.Va's mech displaying the team logo on screen when she enters it, rather than individual players would be neat though.
    *shrug* that's true. i'm kind of just chucking ideas out there maybe it could be like an "18-19 XQC DF Winston" type deal.

    i think they have a pretty big opportunity to really captialize on a unique market here if they play their cards right

    I also try to understand this

    Right now there are 12 teams in the League, will these be replaced by another 12 teams later, with ANOTHER 312 new skins? How often is this team-list refreshed?

    I am a collector as well, but I have set these aside, knowing that they are in a sense, a separate aspect to the game. Basically buying these skins supports esports.

    I like the black and gold on some of the characters, the others are almost too bright for my tastes and I don't like the team name on the design. Really liked Widow's until I noticed she now has a tattoo of the lion head on her back. Originally didn't like any of them, but some of the color schemes on certain characters aren't terrible.
    I don't know, maybe, and this is a big maybe, they were sports teams from basketball, soccer, baseball, etc, I might be more interested in them; however, these are teams in an unestqblished tournament of a game still trying to become an esport. I know nothing about these people or teams and see little to no point in supporting them. Who knows how long these teams or even this OW League will exist?
    I'll get my free one and stop there, maybe use it time to time.
    Just my 2 cents. If others love them and want them, they are more than welcome to do so and I'm not trying to convince them they shouldn't. Just not really my thing.

    You'll earn tokens from watching OWL. You heard it here first.

    So, do you know what the NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB anything like that is?
    The OWL is exactly like that, these teams are not just 6 friends together for a year, these teams are run by owners who paid millions for the rights to play in the league, exactly like other professional teams have.

    The teams won't disappear unless the team fails to win and attract fans, just like other pro-sports teams work.

    So no, don't expect 12 new teams each year, eventually, if OWL is successful you'll see new expansion teams come and some teams may go, just like in every other sporting organization in the world.

    My head hurts now, thanks.

    Just dumping this amount of new skins feels weird tho.
    LoL releases alotttt of skins a year but they space em out so each skin gets enough attention and a little hype.
    Even spacing this out per hero would have likely caused more sales in general, this is just frontloading the whole thing..

    Not releasing them at the same time would cause a major outbreak though

    Not a fan of having to buy them with a currency you cannot earn in game...

    Yeah fair enough, but this seems like the worst possible way to do it.
    And any 'outbreak' would help the hype when everyone's favorite hero skin finally gets released.
    People are already skeptical about the OWL in general with its massive buy in and no clear route to become profitable so the first attempt to make money being handled poorly doesn't help..

    omg why would you want more than one or two for your prefered team and character
    Its a bit nutty seeing someone literally replying to every post in a topic obsessed with belittle everyone for not thinking warcraft is crap, call OTHER people Addicts and fanboys. Lol You're addicted to hate and being your own fanboy, ya nutter butter

    You would end up spending an obscene amount of money on these skins that you will never use.

    Don't. Think about it this way, they aren't with the normal skins for a reason.

    well yea . most people dont usually care about their team colors or name.

    and most people dont enjoy a specific team for a few years.

    thats normal with sports

    If they did start like that people would complain like crazy and they would just release them all at once anyway though. People have been less skeptical lately from what I've seen, might come back when it starts.

    Understandable for the less good looknig skins, but having more Dynasty skins seems perfectly reasonable. Anbd one might just want to support their team?

    I bought the Dallas Force's Genji ..because I hate myself, apparently. Also because I like Seagull, so there's that.

    "May the Goddess smile upon you."

    "Hero", is what they've all been saying. This world, it isn't worth the saving."

    Imagine knowing what autistic really means and knowing when you misuse it to sound cool you really tell everyone you're an idiot.

    Good idea to help crowd-fund esports, I just wish that my home team had the cool green/black color scheme

    That's why being a collector of anything is usually a bad idea.
