Personally, I couldn’t disagree more with what you’re saying. I rock the skins I like because I CAN see them. Anyone who wears them for other people are just kidding themselves because most people do not notice or care what you look like. Also, literally every other game I have played with full body skins there are always a bunch of people saying things like, “I can’t see them because it’s FPS. So, what’s the point?” Granted, I don’t agree, but I can see where they’re coming from. TRS has actually fixed this problem.
Furthermore, I totally buy clothes to look at myself in the mirror and rock clothes that I like. I’m not seeking the attention of others and couldn’t care less what they think. Honestly, who doesn’t buy clothes for themselves? That just seems ridiculous. This also speaks to my character in game. In something like Borderlands or Destiny, even though I can’t see my character, for the most part, I’m constantly opening my menu or forcing third person to check my character out. Vanity? Oh, yeah.
Another thing you mention is that we’ve hit all the monster goals and not hunter. Um, these are not comparable in any way. Let’s review:
Gold skins-literally play a match
Voodoo Goliath-throw a million rocks with no stretch goal
Voodoo Wraith-beat Hyde by at least one game with no stretch goal
Trapper Predator-win with Griffin (don’t remember the number)
Bucket and Support Predator-200 million damage with turrets for Bucket and 350 million for all support
Hyde Predator-beat Wraith by at least one match with no stretch goal
Parnell and Assault Predator-two million headshots for Parnell and 2.8 million for all assault
*note: Some of my numbers may be wrong. Feel free to correct me.
So, first of all there have been no monster stretch goals. Second, our resident data analyst admitted he may have set the Bucket stretch goal too high and Xbox live was not working for some people, the launch announcement was delayed on TRS’ end and we STILL almost made it. Third, with Hyde and Wraith, it was anyone’s game, someone had to lose and it was like 54%. Hardly a crushing defeat and some would argue Hyde was at a disadvantage. Fourth, in the case of Parnell, we likely had low participation due to him not being very popular, but nobody really knows and here again, we STILL almost made it.
In short, your opinion is yours to have, but your logic is flawed and using absolutes like “no one” is just close minded.
