No I can't get into this game but literally everyone I know is in love with it.

I lost count as to how much I've spent on loot boxes on Overwatch.
Let me check my emails real quick:

Playstation 4 (Overwatch) Loot Boxes: $409.71
Blizzard Entertainment/PC (Overwatch) Loot Boxes: $169.89
Total: $579.60
Total with two versions of the game ($60 each): $699.60 .. give or take some taxes, probably over $750 total.

Not too bad. I thought I had spent more than that.

Only during events
And even then only around 20-30$ max

So far between all the consoles I've probably spent around 200ish

I only spent $20 on event boxes as I didn't have time to play during the Uprising Event.

Not really worth it imo. They are only cosmetics unless there's something you really want. I got lucky though and got several different event legendaries from 20 boxes.



PSA. Save your lootobxes until next update.

No.
The moment you have a lootbox, its contents are decided. When they add more content, it doesn't give you a chance of getting something in the "new" update. You get whatever was available before the update. They've made sure to mention/address this many times in the past. Just be aware that you shouldn't ever save your lootboxes.

Nope. Loot boxes never have anything useful for me, anyway.

I didn't mention to save the lootboxes for the next event. I mentioned, save lootboxes for the next update (I posted this before the update went live today)

Loot Box Updates


We always want the experience of opening a loot box to feel exciting and rewarding, and in our latest patch, we’re working to improve that experience in two key ways. First, we’re drastically reducing the amount of duplicates you will receive when opening loot boxes. Second, to compensate for this reduction of duplicate items, we’re also increasing the overall amount of credits you will receive from loot boxes. On average, you should be earning just as many credits, if not slightly more, from loot boxes as you did prior to these changes.

I've bought 10 lootboxes, and that's about it. I don't really care to buy anymore. I also don't really play anymore. You can get most items if you play the game. Only way I could see myself buying more is if I couldn't get an event item I wanted.

Ah yeah. My bad.
I'm so used to people telling others to wait for the next update/patch/event to get the "newest stuff". Lol.

I don't play Overwatch, but I wouldn't if I did play it.

No? I eventually get the skin I want by being patient.
