    "You know that feeling when you open a loot box and that legendary skin for your favorite character comes out?" no

    During the Chinese new year event I opened up a total of 75 boxes, One of those legendary's was the table one another one was the rien, The rest of the legendary's that I got were the mia red skin, Long story short my computer has a hole in it and is in the shop for about another two weeks.

    they need to bring the Heros of the Storm re-roll boxes with gold mechanic into Overwatch.

    it really feels like the drop rates for legendaries have dropped considerably since the Xmas event, I opened 45 boxes during the chinese new years event and only got one Legendary for the event, Uprising, I opened 50 and got 3 legendaries, technically 5, but two were duplicates.

    I think there is a guarantee that sometimes u will get a legendary because i hadnt had for about 30 levels tgen i got 2 in a row

    uuh pretty sure i've seen boxes have 4 whites, so idk why they said there's always at least a blue item

  • X_xParadoxFoundatioNx_X

    Amazing, people care more about the odds of their skins in a gambling machine rather than actual gameplay or potential balance issues lol.

    I don't mind getting the 200 gold for normal duplicate legendaries, but it'd be nice to get more gold for duplicate legendaries from the events. If you get 200 gold from regular legendaries i think we should at least get 600 from the legendaries.

    And a little off topic but I would love to see event legendary gold rewards from loot boxes. Getting 1500 gold as oppose to 500 gold would be a real nice and simple addition to loot boxes and would make dropping 3000 gold on event skins a little more bearable.

    I wish you got Overwatch fun bucks for winning. It doesn't even have to be that much.

  • SirBrainTrain
    SirBrainTrain 16 days ago

    the chance of getting a duplicate depends on the items you have, no? You can just calculate it yourself..I don't think they change the probabilities if you already have an item or not.

    Remember the Haloween Highlight Intro to Reaper. Have you ever noticed that is the Blackwatch Reaper Logo, on the box?! :O

    Different regions wouldn't have different percentages for boxes. I doubt blizzard would put the effort, and if they did and that was found out then it would be a PR nightmare

  • White Rabbit
    White Rabbit 16 days ago

    you cant really get a % of a duplicate. it depends on your level. eg I'm level 654 but i know players who are like level 20. obviously these level 20s will not get many duplicates as i do since by playing ive unlocked 650+ loot boxes but lower levels have only their loot boxes + ones bought so you can't calculate the % of duplicate drops.

  • Dirk Schwartz

    What they need to do is a way to target things.
    I had to buy the Uprising Mercy skin and that really pissed me off. Meanwhile I got the torbjorn and widow ones, as well as a Bastion legendary, all heroes I don't play at all.

    Opening loot boxes is just like throwing money in the ocean, but at least we all get updates as there are people buying hundreds of loot boxes.

    I was expecting your first sentence about a legendary skin popping up to end with "Yeah, me neither" :')

  • Star Moral
    Star Moral 17 days ago

    On paper, 7% for legendaries is not bad. But it's the freaking duplicate and non event ratio that NEEDS to change.

    I want new crap, not something I already have or a skin I can get LITERALLY AT ANY TIME.

  • Ace of Hearts
    Ace of Hearts 17 days ago

    That can't be right. There have been numerous times (especially during Uprising) where my loot box contained nothing but grays...

  • HellGod67
    HellGod67 18 days ago

    YESSS gogo China! Now theese bastards will be forced to have some decency in setting their drop rates. The last event drop rates were a joke so it's right in time.
    Hope someone will make them correct the fking duplicates scam that can make you have constant duplicates on 1 legendary and reward you with (30?) gold?
    Or yes, make a guaranteed drop countdown so that people don't feel completely duped.

    hello Force! thank you for all your videos! but there is a favour I need to ask of you, and I'm going to ask all the youtubers, maybe that way this issue can be fixed faster!
    I play on console! and with the 2.11 patch, us console players got 2 additional options to customize the aim system: aim smoothing and a new aiming mode that is linear ramp. basically, it's the best kind of console aiming you can have, it gibes you the closest 1:1 input of your joystick making it possible to rely much better on muscle memory. it's the kind of aiming system, allowed with a 0% in aim smoothing to give you the kind of aim like every other game has: CoD, Battlefield and co.
    PROBLEM: it's not working! there is some sort of issue with the linear ramp making aiming actually very difficult because there is an issue with the initial acceleration. we've been askinh for this since launch and got this aiming system only last week! we've been posting on the battle.net forum and we still have no answer. so I was wondering if you could maybe help the console community by mentioning the issue, I mean if even the pc community could just go on the forum and support us a little with youtubers help, we might get this issue fixed quicker!
    if we could have our own ptr I'm sure this wouldn't happen.
    hope you can see this!
    keep up the good work and have a nice day!

  • SneakyOxen
    SneakyOxen 18 days ago

    Could we get the option to sell our lootbox for in-game currency?Sometimes when i'm trying to get a specific skin,it becomes really frustrating that the only way to get the coins is by getting duplicates.Giving me the option to sell an unopened lootbox for coins would help out people who are wanting a specific skin,yet cant get it because the odds suck.

  • Nathan Roberts
    Nathan Roberts 18 days ago

    I think overwatch does have a legendary timer, I remember I didn't get my first legendary until my level 50 lootbox, and at the time there was no other way to get loot boxes and I mean really, 50 is a pretty likely number for a legendary timer

  • zhafsan
    zhafsan 18 days ago

    Have you been out of Hearthstone for too long Force? You get in average 1 legendary card for every 20 packs you open. The pity timer is set at 40 packs. Dupes dusts to 1/4 of the crafting cost.

  • Eppul Jecks
    Eppul Jecks 18 days ago

    7% chance for legendary my ass. During uprising on 1 occasion, 4 lootboxes in a row all contained a legendary for me. Later down the line 2 loot boxes in a row had a legendary, and the 3rd box in a row dropped TWO legendaries. I swear my RNG was amazing or had to be rigged somehow. My roommate saw maybe 4-5 legendary drops during uprising. I had at least 10+ legendary drops. And we both bought loot boxes twice during the event.

    EDIT: This is also not mentioning the single legendary drops I got in boxes that were not sequential.

  • Jamie Parkes

    I really hope they just make duplicates occur less often...with how little you get from any kind of duplicate, I would rather just roll for new things.

  • JiroTheHero
    JiroTheHero 18 days ago

    This is kind of why I have issues with any kind of loot box system. It is especially a problem in Fire Emblem Heroes.

    201 boxes?!

  • Александр Македоненко

    7% chance of a legendary? nononono its bullshit, I am making excel table for all my drop and now my chance rating for legendary is 2.7 % yeah avr. drop for legendary is 13-14 but its average, i had leg. drop after 4 boxes, but sometimes I need to open far more than 14 boxes for legendary

  • Fallout Boy
    Fallout Boy 19 days ago

    The only skin I gave a shit abotu what Reinhardts Lieu Skin. But I also had 3000 credits so I figured Id buy one of the legendary, since it was also the last day. I opened all the loot boxes. Got Rein skin and nothing else. So I bought black widows talon skin. I figured, I already have skins for genji and tobj that I love. Could give a shit about mccree or anybody else, but I somewhat enjoy black widow, plus it made her look normal for once. So I bought it. Next day I got one box for some reason, maybe level'd up. Guess what legendary skin came in as a duplicate? Pro tip: known for murdering husbands.

  • nemammemo
    nemammemo 19 days ago

    I wouldn't mind event duplicates too much if I could get more coins to compensate costs of event items now it just feels unfair if legendary skin costs 3000 and i get 200 from legendary duplicate.

  • Endless / Paradox
    Endless / Paradox 19 days ago

    The coins you get for duplicates though...
    200 coins for a duplicate legendary...not even an enough for a non event epic skin

  • Κώστας Δαρζέντας

    I don't think these numbers are exact etc.... I mean... Each loot box has 5 items and 1 is guaranteed to be Rare++, so if the chance is 7% to get a legendary item out of 5 items from a loot box( considering the 7% is from the whole box and not each item in the box) then it's like 3.5 % for it to be a skin, considering the formula is like... 7% to roll legendary loot in general so if legendary skin chance is equal to legendary credits it's like 3.5% for each..... So, if each skin has an equal chance no matter if its duplicate....Well, u get the math etc.....

  • SUROS PDX-45
    SUROS PDX-45 19 days ago

    sorry blizzard (actually, no im not), but I stopped opening loot boxes completely, china was right to do that, it is gambling
    i want micro transactions either like titanfall 2, pick what you want and buy what you want
    or like halo 3, it doesn't exist

  • Garrison Walter
    Garrison Walter 19 days ago

    Blizzard done it right though, when I unlocked 50+ crates in TF2 even during events, I never once got a single unusual item. Always disappointed so I stopped buying keys altogether. They can easily lose customers like me and maybe have been except for the most dedicated members with disposable income. Unboxing in Overwatch finally feels good, fair, and rewarding!

  • Alam_X
    Alam_X 19 days ago

    in the chinese new year event , i played very little and opened like 12 lootboxes and yet i got 3 legendaries (dva , rein , winston) , similar thing happened in halloween ...now in the uprising event i played ...A LOT !!! i leveled up 30 more levels + the arcade , so i got nearly 40 lootboxes , could be more , likely less) .... and i only got "One" legendary (Bwatch mccree) ... i refuse to believe that i had low luck and im certain Blizzard has changed the chance% of lootboxes .... but good thing these are just cosmetics ....

  • TheLonelyMoon

    For me,
    90% rare

    0% legendary

  • Boa Drago

    Cash shop difference and probability difference is well, different.
    You'd see a loot box price difference but I don't think china would have different loot box item drop rate.

  • howlinglotus
    howlinglotus 19 days ago

    I would be happy if the only thing they changed was duplicate currency. Always frustrating to hit the same event legendary 2-3 times and get 200 coins back... when it's a 3000 coin purchase.

  • Angela Gonzalez
    Angela Gonzalez 19 days ago

    the odds of getting a duplicate is still 7.5% its the same % no matter what character it is. in statistics we call this independent events. now the odds of getting a certain legendary for a certain character is low since there are 24 characters and every character has 4 legendarys not counting event ones the odds are. 1 : 720. (one in sevenhundredtwenty)

    • chill out
      chill out 18 days ago

      what?? the odds of getting a duplicate depends entirely on how many legendaries you currently have. if you have 0 legendaries (like a new account) its a 0% chance, and if you spend money on every event until you get all the skins its a 100% chance for duplicates.

  • Morpheous XO
    Morpheous XO 19 days ago

    I imagine the chance of getting a duplicate would change depending on how many legendaries you have already. While possible, I kinda doubt it even checks for duplicates. It probably just has it's drop table for quality, then a second table that has all the skins of that quality. The more legendaries you have, the more likely you are to get a duplicate. I could be wrong, but chance is a bitch, so it wouldn't surprise me at all if I'm not.

    I want to see china ban Overwatch because of the loot box stats, all they showed was the probability of loot for an old event, not the overall probabilities of the base game loot boxes, Blizzard's trying to pull a fast one.

    I wish they would put in the event loot boxes that if you get a Legendary it would be an event skin.

  • Starkiller -7743
    Starkiller -7743 19 days ago

    The rng for the loot boxes is honestly ridiculous. Last event I only got like 4 skins out of like 20 boxes. This time. I have only gotten one and I only got 7 boxes. I am not even gonna bother with it. I think they need to take out the duplicates if you get it a certain number of times. Also make the skins available even if it's more expensive after the events. That is if they don't use them again.

    During the Uprising even I got the Genji skin 3 times, the two Torb skins and the two only epic skins. You know what else I got? 6 Legendary skins that were non-eventful. I got 3 Legendary skins for Tracer, one for Mei, Mccree and a Mercy skin. I was not pleased. I had to spend 1200 credits I had earned for all my wanted skins, only missing out on Orisa's in the end
