I knew this was gonna happen. The moment they announced there was no hero reward for the new year I had that gut feeling. But now we got confirmation of it now that we have ANOTHER $80 Mega Bundle with a hero skin locked to it.
If you remember my infamous post "Activision-Blizzard has gone too far with the Mega Bundle https://www.hearthpwn.com/forums/hearthstone-general/general-discussion/220085-activision-blizzard-has-gone-too-far-with-the-mega?comment=1 ) I said they would do more of these if we didn't vote with our wallets. After the original Mega Bundle, there was the Sir Annoy-O $20 skin that was timelocked to Hallow's End, and then a $50 Preorder bundle for a Rastakhan skin. And now we got another $80 preorder with the iconic Fortuneteller from Old Gods as a skin.
None of these are available elsewhere, and now it's clear it's going to continue. We said no to paywalled heroes when they were first announced back in 2015. We didn't buy the $10 heroes, so we got free heroes instead as rewards for doing something, and everyone loved them. But now, the only way we can get hero skins now is by forking over $80 for these preorders. What used to be free rewards we all loved, is now another money grubbing tactic used by Activision.
But hey, do you guys not have $80?!
why do you still do this
