I swear I was thinking a few days ago about why double XP hadnt come to overwatch. If it had before I must have been playing something else. Hopefully get some more skins, especially since they're all legendaries.

The least they could do after they decreased the legendary drop rate for this event.

To be honest, I never understood why people got so upset over the drop rate for the anniversary boxes. Everybody shouldn't be able to get most of the skins/emotes from the event. It would make the event items look like commons lol

Double XP doesn't fix their discontinued achievements. I am a little surprised more gamer aren't upset about that.

They're supposedly seasonal, meaning the winter event and its achievements will return in winter etc. Not much different than a date-specific achievement (except you can't manually change the date on your console to get them) if that does end up being the case. I think people will feel a lot better about it once the first event returns and confirms they will be coming back. It's just if Blizzard is going to change their mind between then and now about it that has folks worried.

They're not discontinued, they're just cycling based on seasonal time. That's why the only people that are upset are the ones that don't know Blizzard has promised they would return.

The problem is, they further decreased the drop rate for anniversary exclusive items, compared to previous events. Other events had roughly 1 out of 10 chance to get an event item. For the anniversary event its closer to 1 out of 20. This was even confirmed by Blizzard. Which is crap considering this event has close to double the amount of exclusives than the previous events. And dont even get us started about the duplicate drop rate, once you get an event item.

It's kind of funny they did this for the first time just as Battleborn goes free. Seems Blizzard really wants them to Fail. laugh

They also don't know that Blizzard has been good about supporting such things for YEARS. It's better to complain in the forums every time one of these posts comes up. laugh

This couldn't have come at a better time! This event has so much stuff I want to get.

Double EXP feels almost like triple with how less tedious it is. I'm getting more for losing than I would normally for winning.

No joke!!! Ranking up every 4-5 games with group bonus. This is a nice change of pace!
