As I write this, I have just gotten, what I assume will be my last Winter Loot Box from this year’s Overwatch winter event and I wanted to share my thoughts on it.
To be honest with you, I did pretty damn good and managed to score quite a few skins during the event. I loved how the Mei snowball fight mode returned and I spent a lot of time in this mode. I just wish that they had better matchmaking as it took an age for me to get a game, I play on both Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and both versions had issues with taking forever to find a game.
The new mode, Yeti Hunt was ok, but I felt it was kind of mismatched and when you played as Winston it was really hard to win, well it could be that or just that I absolutely sucked at the mode! Still, it was a lot of fun and I loved the super cute artwork at the start of the match.
I have had a lot of fun with the Winter Wonderland event and I liked how after three wins, you got an extra loot box, but I do feel that Blizzard could have given us a break and not made us wait so long to get more.
While the return of Mei’s Snowball Fight was really cool, I was a little disappointed with Yeti Hunt and I do not think that many people will be begging for that mode to come back next year. I do think that they could get away with just keeping on bringing back Mei’s Snowball Fight and people would be cool with it.
So while I scored pretty good with skins during the Winter Wonderland… I even got enough currency to buy the McCree Scrooge skin that I have wanted since last year! I would love to hear what cool stuff you guys scored from the Overwatch Winter Wonderland event.
