Let's be honest here. When you've sat on a game for 2 years, saw how games like CS:GO, Fortnite etc excel from customization and having a backer like money-grubbing-EA -
HOW CAN YOU NOT SPEND TIME ON THIS?!
Your common to epic is just recolor with lame patterns, coloring etc.
Your idea of using apex coins to buy recolored items for your in game currency is a blow to the face for us that are actually lvl 200+ and not to mention usually worse then the original.
I hated Fortnite gameplay, still do. Lack of a good FPS game you have filled, but now you please have to fire that art deparments, lure over some good people and thrive.
New maps, guns, etc etc is all in the making. But the little toddler with crayons have to be fired or re-assigned to grass placement.
There is loads of awesome skins out there, but the majority is copy paste.
IS there any plans on changing this, season event skins only, not having skins re-appear in the shop etc etc.
And not just have some poor kid farm 1 month of boxes to get 1 skin he wanted then quit because there's nothing else out there with the rate you get crafting material when you don't spend money..
Sidenote - the lagg when you start a game on servers, yikes. New computer, better line then 90% of the playerbase, 4/6 games today was immense lagg...
The battlepass didn't have any good skins becides the Havoc. Kinda goes against what a battle pass is. "lvl boosters so you can finish the battle pass with 1 reward"...
You're right about this, but I think there are many important issues in the game right now, and the lack of nice skins is not a big problem to focus right now.
Also what is the use of having thousands of cosmetics, unless there's a way to get them without investing hundreds of dollars in it? Although people spend hundreds of dollars, most people don't get nice things. The monthly income of people in my country is 300 dollars and the expenses for living are much more than that. I don't have hundreds of dollars to spend on gambling boxes that do not guarantee anything. So far I've opened 50-55 boxes and all I get is common quips and rare quips. I mean, when the odds are so low, why would I spend my money on this game instead of buying food to live? If the EA set the price according to the purchasing power of countries like Steam did, then maybe we could buy them. But EA doesn't do it and won't do it, and respawn limit the number of boxes that can come for free and never give after 100 level. so people like us have no chance of getting new cosmetics that will be added to the game in the future. In order for us to have the chance to get something new, they should either start pricing according to countries or add boxes that can be achieved with a long grind. For example, when a 75-100k XP accumulates, a box can be obtained.
Anyway, I think I'm out of the headline, so I'm sorry.
Only legend skin that I think looks good is the alternate for Bloodhound's Imperial Warrior skin. Still waiting for it to come back in the store, too. But yeah, for a game that relies so heavily on the microtransactions, there's not a lot to shoot for.
I have to agree on this one.
Even the exclusive skins are just another color of the legendary skin you have to buy for 1800!!! apex coins.
But its the ONLY thing you can spend your 150K legend tokens on.
I totally agree that better cosmetics would make this game a lot more cash.
When it comes to Legends skins, I think Respawn dont want a situation when a skin differs so much from the original that people wont recognize what legend they are fighting. I think this makes a lot of sense.
Are there any specific type of skins you would like to see in game like certain color variations, styles, etc.? Attaching pictures would be helpful.
