I was a bit worried that when they announced that the old skins were coming back, that they might not bring any new ones but it seems that there will be new ones too! Also competitive lucioball? That should be interesting, I wonder if we will earn the comp currency from that?

Awesome, those Lucioball achievements don't seem too bad either. I can finally pick up the McCree skin I've been wanting as well

American McCree is so badass. Will be quite a dilemma to choose between him and Blackwatch.

I hope that when they bring back the other events that they bring back their achievements too! I missed a couple in the Uprising event and I'd love another shot at them.

Yeah same here, I missed a couple Junkenstein achievements in the Halloween event so hopefully can get those when it comes back in October

This was posted on Reddit a while back:

Seems like the good news for those of us that still need some of those 'unobtainable' achievements is that they will be bringing back all those events and seeing how to improve/add to them.

We shouldn’t just press a reset button and make an event from new, it should be the same event that you remember from last year, but maybe we modify some things that weren’t working and add some content. I think the next year will just be refining the events that we have, rather than adding new ones, but I would never take adding a new event off the table.
Curious to see if they add more/new achievements to the returning (i.e. Junkenstein on Legendary difficulty) events or not...

The ult works differently in LB now. You're faster and jump higher. My thoughts is that maybe you can get credit for it even if you weren't the original person who hit the ball by booping it second. It would be similar to how you're credited with kill after only doing 7 damage. It would be similar to an assist.
