I HIGHLY stress waiting for more information before people start crucifying others. Your concern is heard, but unfounded at this point, we don't know anything more than what Lumos posted. And to be honest, my guess is this system would function like most modern day games that have cosmetic elements to them. So..... considering that is more or less a "standard" now in games, I don't understand why this particular instance deserves such an uproar. Blizzard seems to be doing just fine with it in OW, TF2 has something similar, but technically it even uses items that change game mechanics in crates. That is more game changing than this.It's like you're asking us to buy cosmetic items before 8th March when we don't even know if it's more worth it now or after the planned maintenance. And who wants this update? It seems a greedy mechanic (and we all know it is! All NX games have such items drop system). GITS community clearly asked for major bug fixing, none really care about skins or similar, expecially if servers crash twice a week or netcode sucks.
I'm done. I'm really tired of all of this.
