I’m feeling pretty burned on this whole thing. The skin pack for just Stoker, Fletcher, and Arty was ~$30. I convinced myself to buy all three, because the Arty and Fletcher might be worth something on a market someday. Now they’re doing better cards for Arty and Fletcher plus a good Phoenix, an Aimee, and all future mercs for ~$10 more?
Speaking of obsidian operatives, why isn’t there a new Phantom card in there? I guess people who bought Phantom cards just got lucky. Maybe this secret new loadout thing will allow them to play what I thought was a cool skin on a good card. Lucky for them.
I think what it comes down to is if I had known about this in the past I would have waited. Rather, I would have waited. Now it feels like buy early, get bent over. It wouldn’t take too much for them to make it right. Giving people that bought early an option to get credit for what they spent would go a long way.
So when Jav and Guardian was released, it was with unique skins. How’s that gonna work if you buy the ALLTHEMERCS pack? I’m not paying double for mercs just for a skin :o
Unfortunately, that’s how it’s been in the past. They are trying to price the skins at $12-15, so I don’t know that they would want to sell a skin pack for less than $40.
