In case you don't feel like watching the video:

-Your last 5 highlights will be around for 24 hours regardless of whether you turn off PC/console.
-Bind a key on PC to capture highlights. Can have up to 32 saved.
-Loot box duplicate rate is "drastically" reduced. Credits from loot boxes will be increased.

Let's see if I can finall buy loot boxes during events, right now, it doesn't matter when yuou buy them, it's too underwhelming, you buy them at the start of the event, you risk getting duplicates and almost no credits at all, you buy them a few days before the event ends for those 3 last legendary skins you need, you'd still probably get the same event duplicates with really no good payout.

Great news about dupes and credits was very bad before.

Really happy with that last point.

All I seem to get is player icons and sprays and when I finally get a skin it's a duplicate.

Nothing like getting excited when you see the legendary coloured beam burst up as you open your loot box...to have the item drop down and reveal itself...as another duplicate.

There's very little I even need to unlock any more, so more credits out of boxes will mean I can just buy everything for every event =)

Not so bad I suppose

Thanks for the summary. I kinda get the "last 5 highlights will be around for 24 hours" thing, but not the limit of 32 saved. Not if you choose to save it on your own hard drive?!

The new function of capturing it yourself instead of the auto highlights has been long awaited.

Thousands? There's 24 characters with about 55 items for each and a couple hundred player icons.

Sprays, lots of sprays as well. Maybe not thousands, but there's a LOT of things to unlock.

Sprays are counted in for each character, not to mention there's a lot of sprays that can be used with all characters.

And those aren't counted in the character unlocks. Is this really worth arguing over?
