Why Loot Boxes Are Missed by Some “Overwatch 2” Players!

Since the release of this “sequel,” players of Overwatch 2 have had to navigate the murky waters of free-to-play monetization. No turning back at this point.

The original Overwatch no longer exists because it was completely replaced by Overwatch 2, and the new system for acquiring cosmetics is widely panned by players as being worse

The only way to earn enough money to purchase specific character skins, even older ones, now requires players to endure arduous, pointless challenges.

Alternatively, you could just buy them with actual cash. While there may be some desirable skins available via the battle pass, this only ensures that at the end of each season.

The fact that you can now earn currency without “gambling” for skins in loot boxes may sound like a good thing, especially since Overwatch’s loot box system

You could collect a lot of rare skins by playing, and later features like dupe protection and bad luck protection made it easier to do so.

Fortunately, that’s no longer the case. As loot boxes and other forms of “luck” have been removed, players are left with the tedious process of completing challenges

Even though there are “paths” to specific skins now rather than relying on randomness, the end result is a system that feels significantly less rewarding.

I have faith that Overwatch 2‘s monetization will get better with time, but in the meantime, yeah, loot boxes are somehow actually better in this 1.0 version. Categoriesgame
