Overwatch 2 fans have come up with a list of ideas that they think could potentially solve some of the biggest problems players are facing.


fans of Monitor 2 gathered on social media to express their dissatisfaction with the news regarding the prices of cosmetic items and to offer suggestions to the game developers on how to fix these issues to make the game more user-friendly. However Monitor 2 faced a fair share of criticism due to a list of flaws that have dogged the game since its launch in October, ongoing issues with cosmetic item availability and pricing remain among the biggest annoyances for most fans.

GAMER VIDEO OF THE DAY

It’s no secret that Monitor 2, unlike its predecessor, is completely free for everyone on any platform. Although this allowed Monitor 2account to reach an all-time high, it doesn’t change the fact that the game is plagued by many of the same shortcomings that are commonly seen in other free-to-play games. Specifically, it’s the accessibility and price of cosmetics that seem to be one of the biggest complaints from the community right now. While the original game allowed players to earn free loot boxes as they progressed, this mechanic was completely removed in the sequel in favor of a new shop section that allows players to purchase from a rotating selection of skins and bundles, with a premium battle pass available. to start.

RELATED: Blizzard suspends gaming services in China

Fans on sites like Reddit, Twitter, YouTube, and beyond have made clear their disappointment since the game’s release with the high prices of cosmetics and the inability to reliably acquire them for free. While it’s sadly common to find little more than loud, unconstructive anger on online forums, many helpful players have chosen to create their own ideas for how the game and its systems could be improved. A player named -ShyLuna- on Reddit came up with his own tweaks, resulting in the idea of ​​increasing Overwatch Coin rewards from weekly challenges and possibly even introducing a mechanic that would allow players to trade with each other. .

Currently, completing Weekly Challenges provides the only method to acquire Overwatch Coins for free, but the amounts rewarded are so small that Monitor 2 players calculated that it would take over 33 weeks to unlock a single Legendary skin if they relied solely on weekly challenge rewards.

Of course, many different players suggest many different solutions to the monetization problem. Many players are uncomfortable with the prospect of adding a trading mechanism, as such a feature is feared to encourage account theft and fraud. However, many players believe that Monitor 2 will have to adapt its prices if we want to maintain the interest of the players. Blizzard continues to provide fixes throughout Season 1, but it remains to be seen if they will listen to player feedback regarding cosmetic availability.

Monitor 2 is available on PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S.

6 Times Kylie Jenner’s Kylie Cosmetics Team Exposed Appalling Working Conditions https://stefmike.org/6-times-kylie-jenners-kylie-cosmetics-team-exposed-appalling-working-conditions/ Sat, 05 Nov 2022 23:20:08 +0000 https://stefmike.org/6-times-kylie-jenners-kylie-cosmetics-team-exposed-appalling-working-conditions/

At just 18 years old, Kylie Jenner launched her first business, Kylie Cosmetics.

Since its inception in 2015, the brand, which started out as Kylie Lip Kits before morphing into a full-fledged makeup conglomerate, has transformed Jenner into a global phenomenon.

During an August 2022 interview with E! News, Jenner said launching a brand with her own products was a no-brainer decision.

“I think that was at the core of my makeup obsession,” Jenner said. “That’s what made me love makeup so much, the self-expression behind it, and the creativity.”

Since launching the company, Jenner has expanded it and brought in many people to work for her, but what’s it like working for the mogul?

Here are 6 of the worst conditions Kylie Cosmetics staff have faced:

1. Staff have been banned from watching Kylie Jenner.

A former employee who worked for Kylie Cosmetics has revealed that staff members weren’t allowed to watch the reality star.

Martha Molasco worked at the factory from 2015 to 2017 after being hired by a temp agency and said there were strict rules for employees when Jenner was there.
