A skin and several more additions by way of apology from Blizzard.
In these 10 days that Overwatch 2 has been active, the Blizzard game has suffered many problems beyond the simple difficulty connecting to servers, like the bug that prevents access to all heroes. Although it has been the most widespread and frustrating of all. Therefore, the guys from Blizzard are going to have a nice gesture with the members of their community and are going to give away a legendary skin completely free of charge in form of apologies.
Let us remember that in the first days of the game’s activity, apart from the common problems due to the enormous demand for players, Overwatch 2 would have suffered DDoS attacks, for which Blizzard established a new SMS verification system to ensure the security of the game, even if it delayed access even more. Eventually this method was removed, but only for veteran Overwatch 1 players.
