You know what won’t return though? Tour medals and skin-rewards for Versus-events despite TC stating the opposite before OP9.

One of these days I’ll make a list of all of TCs lies throughout 2020-21.

This a joke? I honestly can’t tell lol.

If it isn’t then I’ll just say no one cares about any playlist besides Control, TDM and FFA in that order. Execution being a slight runner up even though its been in the game since the dawn of time.

Going through old TWIGs and patchnotes would probably be enough already for a monumental thread.

Anyone remember when something like a 15 year anniversary would warrant a special skin set and maybe an event?

I’m honestly surprised that there isn’t a hivebuster Sam skin, but there are 9 dead characters with HB skins.
I like to believe that they are actually DeeBees with Silicon Valley levels of realism

@Ultra_Gnasty, @Watery_shoe what’s your take?

There has to be! They had to have a made it! They just have to!

Well, I don’t know what to say since I would most likely get flagged for what ever explicit words I have towards TC for not releasing more new skins for Sam. Especially a Hivebuster skin. They didn’t even bother bringing her Black Steel skin back either.

From me to TC:

What’s with Hivebuster Barrick’s mutton chops? They’re a bit wild aren’t they?

Well, the decisions as to who got which skins all seem completely random.

Heroic Lahni but no heroic Mac or Keegan.

Heroic Marcus and Baird but no heroic Cole or Anya.

Heroic Kait but no heroic JD or Del.

I cba to continue.

They probably had a whole line up that didn’t make is, because they had to pull the plug. You can for example tell from the Carmines: all but Ben have a Hivebuster skin. That is just odd. It probably wasn’t in a state for proper release, so they shelved it.

Don’t seek a real logic… it seems isn’t the best skill of TC.

Sorry for the delay. But it sickens me to the core.
Not even Black Steel? Garbage.
I loved her Black Steel look.
