BlizzCon’s “What’s in the Loot Box?” panel was a glorious trainwreck
Forget the new WoW enlargement or vanilla servers. Forget about Moira and Blizzardworld. Forget new Hearthstone playing cards. You’ve even gotta overlook StarCraft 2 going free-to-play. The actual massive information at BlizzCon was the revelation of what can be inside a large loot field.
None of them had been large, however you may try our findings from opening 50 loot bins on the Overwatch PTR.
The BlizzCon schedule introduced a panel referred to as “What’s in the Loot Box?” (Presumably this was earlier than the web collectively acquired very offended about loot bins.) We had no thought what the panel was. Neither, it appears, did most of the folks on the panel. Community supervisor Josh Engen promised it could be very foolish, and possibly a massive waste of time. On that time, at the least, they delivered.
Perhaps the most telling a part of the panel was that the precise large loot field acquired held up in customs, so the panel spent half an hour taking a look at a tiny loot field whereas imagining what was to be inside a large one. Look, it was late in the day. Everyone was punchy. It was a good approach to unwind.
It was YouTuber Stylosa dressed up as the spray of punch child from the first Overwatch quick. Why? I don’t know. You don’t know. Nobody on the panel knew. We won’t ever know. Nobody who attended or watched that panel will ever obtain that thirty minutes of their life again. Well performed, Blizzard.
So about that enormous loot field lol…
