The good news is it's going out with a bang.

With new laws come new business practices to get the most out of them - and Overwatch is no exception it seems. Every Overwatch event before the Anniversary Event has had a dedicated game-mode. Anniversary Loot Boxes are also available for purchase-but they'll be locked away after the event ends.

Beijing slams USA for 'irresponsible remarks' on S. China Sea
Duterte, however, set the victory aside in exchange for economic deals with China said to be worth billions of dollars. Also upping the pressure on China , U.S.

As expected, experience gained during the weekend will be doubled for players across all three platforms. Players can also still earn loot boxes via the traditional means of leveling up and using the arcade to get free loot boxes - this is purely because the sale of "lottery ticket" systems, which loot boxes were considered, has been outlawed. In fact, the only experience it doesn't effect is First Win of the Day bonus.

"I just wanted to acknowledge that we've been following the threads about the loot box rewards as they pertain to the anniversary events, other events and loot boxes in general". Of course, there's no evidence to suggest that this wasn't necessarily Blizzard's plan all along, and even if it is true, developers responding to community feedback is not a bad thing.

There are still five days before the event ends, plenty of time for Blizzard to respond to, in more detail, some of the requests at hand. "It's been an incredible year, and we're so thankful you were a part of it".
