Did they change their mind on giving out event exclusives?

Was wondering since I got the hound mask and davids jacket when I didn't have them before. Is this just a bug?

    I assume a bug or lack of oversight. I have two of Kate's bbq shirts. I earned it, but why would I have 2?

    I feel like they used a prerequisite (played at x date, during X timeframe, etc) to see who was eligible and gave them out regardless. If they "may" have had them, they have it to ensure nobody lost it kind of thing.

    Nope. There's a news update when you start the game up saying that they're giving them out to everyone.

    Finally. I've been wanting to reclaim my Hank Hill Propane Hammer again ever since making the jump from PS4 to PC.

    Would have been nice if they had addressed what they will be doing moving forward with players that lost legacy cosmetics. An apology is nice, but an update on the situation and how it will be resolved would be even nicer.

    I’m happy they did this. I already owned the summer bbq ones but I’m just happy more people can enjoy them and I can finally get that David jacket.

    I understand why some people might be a little disappointed but it’s honestly not that big of a deal. Maybe they could have put them in the shop instead of giving them away for free, but either way it’s just nice that they did this.

    Those events were released before the in-game shop was a thing (or very shortly after in the case of the Scorching BBQ event), when they didn't have a finalised way of having people earn cosmetics.

    Now that the Rift is a thing, they can allow people to earn them for free during the event, while also allowing people who missed it to cough up the dough if they really want it (like with the Hallowed Blight/Catalyst events).

    I imagine they gave these out to everyone for consistency reasons, and will be following the new module from now on.

    well we don’t want another case of “IS THE ANNIVERSARY SKINS RETURNING?!?!” on our hands like the legacy “IS LEGACY RETURNING?!?!” Thing.

    Also why you may ask? For fun

    In the end, it doesn't matter a hell of a lot. Most of the event skins aren't nearly as good as what is in The Rift or the store for that matter. But it does leave a sour taste in the mouth of older players. To grind something and then just have them handed out at a later date doesn't feel good at all.

    It sort of makes me sad. And why would I want to participate in later events if they are just going to be given out. What is the point? Why grind? Why even have an event?

    Just toss the skins into the store or something. Or give them out form the get go, and don't make a grind for it.

    It may seem like a lesser issue to be upset about, but it does matter. It sort of affected how much effort I am willing to put into the game, and playing it as a whole.

    Legacy skins exist and are still a bragging right....

    also look, I participated in the event for lunar new year...all of them, along with the summer bbq event and I honestly don’t mind everyone getting the skins, they are literally just skins and don’t affect gameplay in anyway

    What's with all the back and forth on this issue? Isn't this like the third time they've done a 180 on their decision?

    Why would I care if someone has a cosmetic I like on? Why does it matter?/ if anything I get to see it more and that's awesome..I never understood the absolute sheer toxicity of this

    They give away cosmetics that we have obtained since 2016 but the cosmetics that we are getting from the rift take them from us

    this is already absurd
