Default Overwatch Halloween Event

I'm pretty pumped for this. I'm guessing it will drop on Tuesday. The real question is will Sombre also be revealed and added to the PTR at the same time.

Anyone care to speculate on the costume skins we will see? A Grim Reaper Reaper, Stitches Road Hog. Nova Widowmaker. Vampire Tracer... so much potential.

Blizz released a short comic with the characters in Halloween costumes, so I assume that those are gonna be their skins.

Admiral Reinhardt
Pirate Ana
Frankenstein's Monster Roadhog
Mad Scientist Junkrat
Viking Torbjörn
Witch Mercy
Jack O Lantern Reaper

I like his costume a lot, can't wait to see the models for them.

Ana's surprises me (should have been a mummy) a little as does Torbs since pirate and Norse are two themes already in rotation, thus I don't really consider them Halloween skins. But it works and I'm glad we are getting some new content. I was worried that we weren't going to get a Halloween event. I'm not too far from 100 so I guess I gotta grind hard these next few days. I hope I have better luck than the summer event though...

Wonder what the brawl event will be. Maybe the comic is a reveal on that with a spooky Eichenwalde, different sky box and different lighting, some sort of monster hunt?

I'm not convinced that "admiral" will be Reinhardt's skin since so much of his silhouette, kit and theme revolves around him being in bigass armor.

Also I want Lucio to be Shadow the Hedgehog for halloween.

I'm not overly crazy about "wacky" seasonal skins when they're usable all year round.

That said, there's enough silly skins in the game by default so I can live with it and, to be honest, I'm quite interested in some of these.

Sounds like a lot of fun, too bad there's no one going as a werewolf.

Vampire Hunter McCree looks cool though.

Personally I think D'va is best for a werewolf skin.

I never thought I'd say this, I am so relieved that this is not rolling out today.

Mechanically, it absolutely makes sense, but not so much thematically.

Well if you give her nine tails... she could be a Kumiho. A Korean white fox creature that shapeshifts into a woman to eats livers. It's actually the lead character in a popular Kdrama character based around one trying to find a boyfriend as well as featured in a number of Korean horror movies. It's so prominent that in the super hero theme Overwatch the only Korean Marvel superhero White Fox has the power of a Kumiho.

So theres that...

Is keep the hunched frame of the Mech cover it in fur and make it wolf like with her in the maw of it. Then do the nine tail traditional Korean outfit thing when she's out.

Well the event is out. I've gotten really lucky on a bunch of the skins. So far I love everything about this except there isn't more! I guess we have to wait til next year. All the characters get a Tombstone Victory Pose. Theres a number of new lines, some new emotes. I've managed to get the Junkenstien Skin, Vampire Symmetra, Ghoul Ana, Ghost Reinhardt and Witch Mercy through Luck and Gold. The Halloween Event skins are going for 3000 Gold each rather than the normal 1000, but atleast you can buy them... I didnt get shit during the summer event. I did drop money on some boxes this time though.

The Brawl is even crazy fun. It's a survival map where you defend the Eichenwalde gates against Zombnics and AI characters. It's quite good, fully voice acted as well.

None of the skins are really doing it for me. They suffer from the being weird outside of Halloween, but there are other weird skins too so I'm not sure. I'm still not a huge fan.

Those skins look great but I still have a bad taste in my mouth over not being able to buy them with in-game currency.

You can buy them with currency now. They're thrice as expensive as normal skins.

Jack o'lantern Reaper is really nice. Don't really have enough gold for any and not willing to spend money on boxes. Are the drop rates for the skins good?

It's tough to say... I bought the 50 lootboxes and got like 6 new skins total, and I got a double of two rares. I think it's average where as the Summer Boxes are bullshit... You can still buy em with gold though.

Someone didn't do their basic research or read the content of the thread.

I spent $55 on boxes and got the Reaper/76/Ana/Junkrat/Hanzo skins, a few RIP poses, the Reaper and Genji highlights, the Reinhardt emote, and then bought the Mercy skin cause I got lucky with currency.

Not sure yet if worth considering how little I play but probably if I ever decide to play a lot in the future.
