A Bundeswehr skin for Reinhardt. That's actually really cool. His Blackhardt skin also looks amazing.

That's not the Pori I know.

I love the new skins, got some Gothic Lotlita, Succubus/Demon versions and just plain ol' Goth.

I think that this game might get another look by me....

Hoping for another wave tomorrow because it's not uncommon for Blizz to send out more waves the day after a beta opens or reopens after a long hiatus.

Getting in would be pretty nice.

Idk man, can these characters at least be released before they start throwing them into stupid halloween costumes?

Like there are a bunch of skins that are awesome. Undersea Winston is a great example of a unique skin that is actually based on something the character might have actually used. Thats a skin that reflects the fact that these are new characters in a new franchise, and it's a clever way to build upon his story with neat little minutae (here's his deepsea diving suit for when he's doing underwater science shit!). I can't say the same thing about the safari one, which is just goofy and baffling.

I know I'm being a lame buzzkill, but honestly you have so many options of awesome skin ideas available to you before you just shrug and go "I don't know what about a sexy devil"

It's just lame and corny

edit: I'm glad they're from loot crates and not purchasable, that'll minimize the eye rolling I experience while playing

I really like Hanzos Overwatch uniform too. More skins of what the characters might have looked like when they were still in the organization would be dope af

They've said they will also be purchasable with Real Money in the future.

Sorry.

JUST

So long as everything can be earned with in-game currency I don't mind so much. It just feels kind of inevitable that Overwatch is going F2P eventually though - as me and Hammer discussed last night - and the whole B2P thing is a means of suckering in people via the hype, before instantly swapping over to F2P once the well looks a bit leaky. The whole game looks built upon it; unique, characterful MOBA-esq heroes who can be created and bought as opposed to classes, difference skins in-game before we're out of beta, the whole 'ambiguity' of whether or not it IS F2P that lasted a whole year, etc.

Honestly, I don't mind skins and other cosmetics being purchasable. They're nice extras, but not essential.

I agree, they're not essential so I have no legit objections per se. However, given the game is B2P I do feel the idea of skins being buyable for real money is....morally wrong.

It will depend on how in-game Credits work. They've said Skins/Tags/Cosmetics will be via Boxes you get via playing - fine, good even - but they've also said there will be in-game curreny (Credits) and haven't given any detail on how those are earned/at what rate/the cost of spending them.

You can get credits from loot boxes, and if you get a duplicate drop (say, a skin or emote you already have) it's converted into credits.

I don't believe in Emotes being purchasable, that's evil moneygrubbing right there.

I really dislike the fact that most of the skins are just new basic recolourations of the existing skin without adding anything to it really.

On the other hand I'm glad the beta is back because I really enjoy playing this game.

It's Blizzard, you are on a WoW forum, I mean Christ that's a B2P sub game with a higher sub than most with paid services and a store, that charges full game price for an expansion and doesn't even put out content patches anymore.

Thanks for the info.

That's.....quite decent actually, assuming they let us buy stuff with Credits instead of Real Money (which sounds obvious but we can't be sure till Live) and the price isn't retarded.

Well you can buy skins with credits, not sure what else will be purchasable.

I have that skin. I often play Overwatch with one of my highschool buddies and he pointed out that it looks almost identical to one of my highschool girlfriends.

Was honestly expecting it to be nearer July when it was all said and done but if it's ready, then awesome, looking forward to it.
