Do you have Jonathan Byers?

JarolJarol Member Posts: 1,985

I want to know how many of the community owns Jonathan Byers, I am his main and I would like to know who else is his main before his elimination, I would like to "recommend" that they buy him in order to extend the legacy of Stranger things, so you can own to the beautiful couple, Jonathan and Nancy.

    I might get him if I am able to buy more auric cells before November 17, but right now my plan with my remaining cells is to buy Steve's 4 Ultra Rare outfits and his Ugly Sweater (when the sale comes on), so I'm trying to preserve the amazingness of Steve "The Hair" Harrington.

    Yes :D

    I own him but i rarely use him, the main reason why i bought him was because i could not STAND having the Steve slot saying 13/16.

    I’m not a fan of the series, so I don’t even know who the character is. I’ll save my shards for something else.

    He just looks... Off in some way. I can't put my finger on it, but because of that I don't really want to get him.

    Maybe when he goes on sale I'll buy him, just so I can be part of like the five people who actually own Jonathan.

    Not yet. Currently I'm avoiding store purchases but since these are all going to be removed permanently, I'm going to get all of the Stranger Things cosmetics when they're on sale. Right now I'll get Demo's two remaining outfits and Steve's Scoops Ahoy outfit and then use my next paycheck for all the remaining ST cosmetics.

    I've never sat down to watch Stranger Things beyond the first episode. I like Steve so I'll buy him, but Idk enough about Jonathon.

  • TacitusKilgoreTacitusKilgore Member Posts: 1,381

    Hes horrifically ugly. Like, REALLY ugly. Like kid who sits in the back of the class ugly.


    I'll still buy him during the ST sale for the sake of having every cosmetic though.

    And I do not plan get him.

    Might get the demo skins, but not the survivor ones.

    I don't know I really just didn't care all that much for Johnathan while I watched Stranger Things- good guy I guess but not a super compelling character. Unlike Steve who changes and grows throughout the show and is placed in many different roles, and narrative functions from his very beginning as the arrogant Jock, to a humble and kind boyfriend, he was even an underdog at one point (because he "never won a real fight" up to a point in the show), surrogate older brother, "babysitter" this dude has it all and is extremely well written.

    Johnathan is like- the awkward, weird but nice, shy, quiet guy? Which is supposed to automatically entitle him to the audiences affections / sympathy? Dunno I just don't vibe with that.

    I might reconsider down the line, like a last minute "ah ######### it" on the 16th of november before it all goes away- but as it stands I really don't have plans to get Johnathan Byers. Not because it doesn't look like Johnathan or something wrong with how he appears in game- it's just I'm not attached enough to the character from the show.


    There's also the issue that I'm still boycotting legendary skins in their entirety simply because they aren't worth the egregious amount that they ask people to pay for them. 10$ for a regular skin is already a reach to begin with but 15$ is just outrageous when the base game costs 20$ and a DLC chapter costs either 7 (and introduces actual BRAND NEW characters) or even 12$ for three characters. The fact that the devs can't even muster up the effort to change how the powers of the killers appear to reflect the change to their character (Why does Minotaur Oni wield a Japanese Kanabo?) or the voices of these characters (still rage filled samurai battle cry instead of animalistic guttural minotaur roar) is a gigantic turn off because in all reality these characters are no different in quality from Very Rare skins. Yet they ask for 5$ more.

    I know they made a little effort in this department- Survivor icons now show the face of the legendary character, they have their own little lore bio, and they even have unique animations in the lobby and such (Lisa doesn't stand the same way Cheryl does and Chris doesn't stand the same way Leon does) but to my knowledge they still haven't gone all the way and the voices of these characters (probably the single most noticeable feature about them since matches are filled with screaming and whimpering and cries of pain) haven't been changed. Steve and Johnathan still have the same atrociously high pitched opera singer voice, Leon / Chris, Cheryl / Lisa, etc. Although if this isn't the case somebody correct me and let me know but I'm fairly certain it is (even if it wasn't it still wouldn't change everything, since I know for a fact that they haven't supported Killer Legendary skins in the same way: killer power icon doesn't change with the legendary skin, the lore, power visuals / aesthetic, etc. so on and so forth).

    I'm not even a fan of him on Stranger Things. 😂

    I mostly play the non licensed characters anyway. More potential for customisation with cosmetics.

    I may get it just cause it's last chance to buy them.

  • blue4zionblue4zion Member Posts: 2,420

    I don't, and didn't plan on it.

    But I simply am very bothered by both things getting removed, and missing out on something permanently in games.

    So i'll be getting it as well as all the other cosmetics for all three.

    No ._.

    I'm not a big fan of the series. Only Stranger Things cosmetic I'd like to buy is chains outfit for Demogorgon. He has iron collar that make him look like demo puppy.

    There are rumours that someone somewhere bought him. But nobody I know has ever seen him.

    I'm not a Stranger Things fan, but i think i will get him before it's too late.😔

    I plan to get him when I get paid next. I like that you can have another character on the same character like a whole transformation into someone else.

    I would if the skin would look anything like the preview we got when it was announced. His face is the new old Quentin.

  • TragicSolitudeTragicSolitude Member Posts: 5,458
    Yes :D

    I got it because of the ST sale. I figured why not.

  • Sackboy123Sackboy123 Member Posts: 366
    Yes :D

    Leon/Chris and Jill/Claire have different voices so it's a WIP for others to follow that path


    I got Jonathon during the sale, weird having Steve's voice, hopefully he can get his own before the licence expires

  • Nathan13Nathan13 Member Posts: 5,633

    I own Jonathan but I haven't played as him in a long while.

  • AurelleAurelle Member Posts: 2,246
    Yes :D

    I rarely ever play as him, though.

    Thanks for clearing this up. It's absolutely horrendous that they thought this was something they could get away with when first releasing legendary cosmetics- and until they do a pass over all of them they just aren't worth purchasing.

    I can live without never getting Jonathan. It's up to the devs to make the content they produce worthwhile and I'm not gonna sit here "hoping" that one day the benevolent devs will decide to do right by the player. Either they make quality content or they don't, and I'm not going to waste a single dollar on anything that isn't all that it should be. Personally I would encourage everybody else to do the same- but to each their own, if you like Jonathan as a character it's not like I can stop you from endorsing something you personally enjoy. Personally I don't enjoy what is essentially a scam- but that's just me.

    A must get for me now, it will be gone soon.

  • DetailedDetrimentDetailedDetriment Member Posts: 2,632

    I've thought of getting it just so I can say I have it, but outside of that reason, there is none to purchase it.

  • Dr_LoomisDr_Loomis Member Posts: 3,703

    No but without the :,( face.

    Stranger Things was good but I'm not an obsessive fanboy or a person with money to throw away who will pay that ridiculous amount for a simple skin.

    BHVR shouldn't be encouraged with purchases of these "legendary" skins. It's pure greed.

    Even though the Stranger Things content is being discounted, I still won't buy the skins. The Jonathan one doesn't even look good.
