Blizzard is offering surveillance 2 players a holiday gift in the form of a Gingerbread Bastion skin. It’s exactly what it sounds like: robot hero shooter, made entirely of gingerbread and candy canes. His companion bird is even made out of gingerbread, and his whole outfit is super cute. The skin and a Candy Cane weapon charm are now available as an Overwatch one-coin value pack, but what was probably meant as a goodwill gesture for the holidays comes with one notable annoying drawback: now, my balance Overwatch Coins is no longer a nice round number.
If you, like many others, are the type of person who needs to turn the volume on your TV up or down in order for the level number to end at five or zero, you probably know what this means. Now, no matter how many coins you earn by completing weekly challenges or paying them outright, you will never have a fixed number again, as all the amounts of coins you can get surveillance 2 end at zero already. So if you buy the Gingerbread Bastion skin, there will always be an annoying nine at the end of your coin. Unless Blizzard releases something with a cost ending in nine.
Kidding, but the discrepancy actually has a tangible effect on the use of the surveillance 2 Shop. All the cosmetics you can buy in the in-game store cost round numbers, and there is no way to buy Overwatch Coins for less than 500 coins ($4.99). So, for example, let’s say you want to buy a skin that costs 1000 Overwatch Coins, but you just bought the Bastion skin for one coin, bringing your balance to 999 coins. You would be a coin away from buying the skin you wanted, but the only means you would have of closing the gap immediately would be to pay at least $4.99. The next fastest way would be to complete four weekly challenges, which would net you 30 coins, but of course it takes more time.
Ultimately, due to grindy systems surveillance 2 store has in place To acquire currency, a skin that costs one coin has a handful of weird drawbacks, either because it puts your currency balance in a weird place in your economy, or because you have to deal with a non-round number in your wallet looking at it. fixedly. every time you open the store. But as a holiday gift, it’s the idea that counts, I guess.
