    Boston doesn't have the best color scheme, but at least we don't have the red and yellow Mcdonald's skins.

    They are dumb looking recolors, with the names of teams on them that none of us will ever be on, even if we somehow go pro and made a team.

    Why do people want these, why does the paywall matter?

    Basically this. I don’t think anyone plays all 26 heroes on the regular. Even if you want a full team, £70-£80 isn’t so bad compared to a football shirt and you can stagger it (I’ve easily spent that on loot boxes over a year) starting with your most played.

    I don’t see why you’d need/want every skin for every team; that’s proper niche collector behaviour, kind of like buying every strip for every team in the premier league which would similarly be absurdly expensive.

    I really wish we could get some of these color combinations as regular costume unlocks (via lootbox, credits, etc.) in the Hero Gallery, without the team logo and/or name. I really like the black and green of the Houston Outlaws, for example, but I'm not as fond of their logo...or the idea of repping a team from dumb ol' Texas.

    So instead, with the free League tokens they gave us, I bought the Seoul Dynasty skin for D.va, since she's my favorite character, the Dynasty black and gold is my second favorite color combo after Outlaws' black and green, and I feel like D.va would definitely be willing to represent the colors of a pro gaming team from her country.

    I think part of the cost goes to the team and the league. I don't think it was their intention for players to try and get each and every one. Get the one that matches the team you like.

    I feel I will ruin myself if I buy them all, but I also really want them, I can only assume they become unavaliable after this event?

    Also, how long will these be avaliable? Are they gone forever if I don't get them now?
    I suppose they wanna finance their league this way, the same way other competitive games do it.
    It's just shitty team skins anyway.

    My biggest problem is that they cost 5 euro per skin.. For what is essentially a blue skin.

    These skins aren't for collecting. Buying them is investing in a team. You're an investor who receives skin as your dividend by investing.

    I dont have a problem with this, I got my one free skin, maybe I can earn more for free later. Just because some thing is being sold doesn't mean I have any need what so ever to buy it. I have this thing called 'impulse control'. What? 312 new skins? They cost money? I get one free? Cool, I'll take the free one and never think twice about any of the others.

    I don't toss my money at every thing that someone is selling, might be why I have always had money even though I was born poor.
    If you push a button that finds you a 'random group' and it gives you a random group of people with random skill and random knowledge then you have no right to complain that a 'random group' button did what it was designed to do. The fault lies in your inability to make friends to play with instead of relying on a button designed to be random. It is a 'random group' button, not a 'best of the best' button.

    That's a cool story. I hope you get all the skins you want.

    Got Monster-Genji (aka the Outlaws skin), laughed over the McDonalds skins (imagine Symetra at the counter XD) and now i will never think again about them.
    These arent collectables, this is merchandise for the teams.
    Though i love it as a language, english isnt my native tongue. So all you grammar-junkies: Deal with it.
