Overwatch: the problematic launch summarized
Overwatch 2 has been available since last Tuesday, and its problematic launch has given many players a hard time. For good reason, the endless queues made up of 40,000 people, the repeated disconnections, the server problems or the absence of cosmetics or currencies that the players had in their possession on Overwatch first of the name. All this without counting the obligation to join his telephone number, condition that has caused some people to grow angry.
Nevertheless, it is clear that the Blizzard teams are going back on certain controversial decisions while gradually correcting the malfunctions observed.
What to allow the curious and the amateurs of the first episode to discover the novelties of this second opus. Moving from 6 vs. 6 to 5 vs. 5 matches offers a significant difference, the lack of cost to install the game always promises more players while three new heroines display new capabilities to refresh the gaming experience. All this also without counting the mode Advanced as well as new maps made by Blizzard.
How long does it take to unlock all of a character’s cosmetics?
Among the novelties not mentioned below, we forgot to specify the arrival of the battle pass : a course that offers rewards at each level, level to climb with the completion of quests and various challenges. It is the best method to get new cosmetics (like hero models, tags, celebrations…) and replaces the lootboxes obtained in Overwatch 1 at each new level: these offered five random rewards, including at least one of the type Rare.
As you will have understood, the lootboxes have disappeared from Overwatch 2… It therefore becomes more complicated to recover the overwatch coins, currency to be exchanged for cosmetics. They are obtained through weekly challenges, which take a long time to complete and offer few coins compared to the price of said cosmetics.
Indeed, we observe that these are the only types of challenges to offer overwatch coins and donate a maximum of 60 per week. What fun to do a little calculation in terms of time needed to unlock all the cosmetics … of a single character. Let’s take the example of Kiriko, the new healer in the game:
- 3500 Piece Overwatch Skins
- 2000 Piece Overwatch Emotes
- Memories: 2500 Overwatch Coins
- Weapon Charms: 3500 pieces
- Celebrations: 900 Overwatch Coins
- Replicas: 1000 Overwatch Coins
- Stage Entries: 1400 Overwatch Coins
A total of 14,800 Overwatch Coins are required. With 60 coins per week, it therefore takes 246.6 weeks to unlock everything, which is more than four and a half years. A finding which is already mobilizing the anger of some players
