Just an interesting story I’ll share.
It’s covid-19 lockdown, my friend like any other is unemployed. She started playing her brother’s Xbox One and started playing Gears 4. She beat the campaign. She started playing Gears 5 campaign and really enjoyed playing Kait, she was getting into multiplayer horde mode in Gears 5.
Her favourite character is Kait, I think she can relate to the character, anyways she asked when I was playing with her how did I get this Gilded Kait Skin as she wants to play the game and try to unlock it. I think she was adamant of getting all the skins related to her.
I told her that it was from a time-limited event and that the event is over and she can’t get it anymore.
I think she was disheartened when she heard the news.
The next day she’s playing a different game, I haven’t seen her touch Gears 5 since.
Exclusive skins really do exclude players. It sure feels great for those who have it, but man does it really suck for latecomers. I kinda feel bad. I wish these skins were available for everyone. That player regret.
