    So did you guys get the skins you wanted? I think I got them all, really love hanzo/dva and the Mei dance :P

  2. Post
    You're baiting right? I think most people got dicked, even if they purchased a few boxes. I had to buy soldier/hanzo ones with coins I had saved before the event end, but I got the mei and bastion ones if that counts........

    Didn't even get close. Had to buy both D.VA and Lucios skins. From Boxes I got Mei's and Tracers Skin, Winstons dance and a metric shit tonne of playing card sprays and gold icons. Wanted Zarya's Skin, would of liked Soldiers skin and maybe Hanzos (despite the fact i can't use him!)
    From a quick napkin maths check I opened probably about 65ish boxes over the whole event .

    Worst event so far for loot, the pool was so diluted it was ridiculous.

    rofl na man, i think I got stupidly lucky.... which is fair enough, I got dicked on the chinese event, only got 1 skin

    I'm thinking I got stupidly lucky as well, even though I brought a ton of chests. There's more than a few complaints on the OCE FB page about getting **** all even from other people who brought 100~ chests.

    I think they should take a look at how HOTS is doing their boxes and borrow some ideas, they have a much better system

    Better for the players, or better for their bottom line? Because Blizzard seem dead set on making all the money and not giving a **** about the playerbase.

  8. Post
    Better for both, Blizz need people to buy lootboxes, if people don't feel like they are getting their monies worth, or feel ripped off (like they did this event sans the lucky ones) then wont buy them again. HOTS loot boxes strike a much better balance between being given stuff wholesale and being nickel and dimed.

    Side note: loving HLC map, shit loads of options for attackers and mobility heroes are king. Seems they took a look at the hate for Volskaya and Hanamura a bit to far though and the advantages are all with the attacking side.

    RELEVANT! - from todays update

    Loot Box Updates
    We always want the experience of opening an in-game loot box to feel exciting and rewarding, and in our latest patch we’re working to improve that experience in two key ways. First, we’re drastically reducing the amount of duplicates players will receive when opening loot boxes. Second, to compensate for this reduction of duplicate items, we’re also increasing the overall amount of credits players will receive from loot boxes. On average, players should be earning just as many credits, if not slightly more, from loot boxes than they did prior to these changes.
    To help us test this update, all players who log in to the PTR this patch cycle will receive five (5) PTR Loot Boxes. These are standard loot boxes that will only be available on the PTR. Any items earned from loot boxes or unlocked via credits on the PTR will not transfer over to your live account.

    Not really enjoying the game lately, the outcome of most solo comp matches are decided before the match begins based on the people you get put with. Completely one-sided outcomes filled with people who refuse to change, throw matches and have hissy fits at each other, etc.

    If my placements hadn't gone so bad and I wasn't placed in this hole then it probably wouldn't matter, but since I can't affect the outcome of a match it feels like I should just wait until next season and hope for better placements.

    Why am I hoping in a skill based game? It's kind of an issue. It's clear Blizzard isn't removing people who cause problems intentionally for others because it happens all the time.

  11. Post
    ^^Agreed, pretty much stopped playing.

    Placements don't matter because people are toxic everywhere, even the pro level. The community has really went downhill, it's sad.

    Calling it now, Doomfist is the new Hanzo/Sombra Scapegoat. He has mad pick potential but it's so easy to over extend with him, and once his CD's are blown he's a sitting duck.
    A good one will do some serious damage diving in with a Winston/DVA for cover, but it feels like the only thing he has going for him over Tracer/Genji is HP.

    So is defence matrix finally getting a nerf in next patch? That's all I care about. Great wall of china without a ****ing CD attached to pervert waifu bait making her a guaranteed pick every single game.

  15. Post
    bahahaha pervert waifu bait

  16. Post
    Sorry bro, No plans to touch D.VA at all

    The desire for dive comp to go away will not be satisfied from some of you until Winston and D.Va are nerfed into the ground. But we’re not going to do that. We are going to make balance changes to heroes when they need it
    Sauce - It's long but it's a really good read on how Blizz is doing balancing from Jeff

    That's addressing dive, I just want DM to not be a gigantic cone that interferes with projectiles has no awareness of or intention of stopping etc, it's a mindless wall and has no CD, the only way I can ult on certain heroes is breaking her mech entirely which is like saying she outright denies ults simply by existing. Everyone else has to use their ults to counter ults and so forth. DM isn't even a CD and that's a huge deal.

    Thanks for confirming though, disappointed

    For all the peps after a DM change the latest patch has something for you

    Defense Matrix
    New sound effects and voice lines have been added, indicating when Defense Matrix has absorbed an enemy’s ultimate ability
    They buffed her Sass

  19. Post
    Yeah yeah... I played a bit of D.Va myself this season, it really feels too strong, it counters so many ults and has no CD and tons of charge, and prevents pretty much every flank attempt. If I hear a Tracer, Reaper, etc I just turn around and wait, nullify the burst and they die or run off again. Made me think it's stronger than I initially thought whereas when you play something you think is OP you end up learning it's weakness and realize it's fine, but in this case it really doesn't have one.

    I'm at 2587 rating now and don't feel I've peaked. Not sure if I'll aim for diamond this season or if I'll even play next season. I've never really been aiming for a particular rating, just playing.

    I don't know if I love or hate the game, it pisses me off so much sometimes, but that's just the people not the game itself, and if I could play on US servers where I don't have to deal with Aussies and their excessive argumentative / toxic behaviour I'd like the game a lot more even with the added latency.

    Also: lootbox changes are so good, 0 dupes so far after multiple boxes

  21. Post
    I still get them, but definitely less, and I have tons of unlocks already so that's fine.

    Nothing but bad teams making me lose rating today. Typical weekend actually. Too many school kids not at school.

    I think Australians are bad people to play with in general but this is just ridiculous.

    Why Blizz are'nt making TV shows or Movies I have no idea, their shorts just get better and better

    Man..OW matchmaking is so frustrating. Other team? 2 GM in a stack and rest 3.6-3.7k.

    My team... 3 diamonds, 2 x 3.6-3.7k and me (3.9). Two of the diamonds has never even reached masters...they just happened to be grouped with one of the masters that decayed from 4k

    Finally got a good even sr match yesterday...and they have an aimbotter. The other team tried to keep him off payload so that it wouldn't move and we would draw, then one of them decided they really wanted the win and pocketted the hacker zzz the others were all g tho. Really tried to draw it for us.

    Literally master/GM is not even worth it in Oceania, can't play with friends cause the SR diff but get put with diamonds all day erryday. Much joy.
