Overwatch update packs up old loot box drop system

Jeff Kaplan, Overwatch’s Game Director, has announced some changes coming to the insanely popular hero shooters’ loot box system in his recent developer update video (which you can see below). Specifically, Kaplan stated that loot boxes would no longer dispense so many duplicate items.

That sounds great until you realize that fewer duplicate items received means less credits the players can earn. Fortunately, Papa Jeff and his team have already thought about that and players will see more standard currency drops.

Kaplan stated that, “We’ll make sure that your credit intake will be at least the same, if not more.”

This is a great change personally as now players can choose what skins and other cosmetics they would like to purchase instead of wishing and hoping to get it in a loot box.
