Loot Box improvements

According to Blizzard, in their desire to create an exciting and rewarding feeling to players while opening the loot box, they have worked to improve in a couple of ways. The team behind “Overwatch” has reduced the number of duplicates that players will receive upon opening the boxes. Aside from that, in order to recompense for the reduced duplicates, players will also receive an increased overall credit amount received from it.

Players who log in and help test the update on the PTR during this cycle will be rewarded with five PTR #Loot Boxes. The boxes will only be available on the PTR. However, any items earned from this or unlocked using credits on the PTR will not be forwarded to the player’s live account.

Highlight options
