inb4 thread gets locked sooner or later, y'all need to not devolve this into a slapfight over an old beta tester's skin reward

True but still baffles me how much people care about the status of an old skin.

Would love to see a jury rigged background and portrait given to EA players. Then everyone can get the firepit skin and EA players can still show they're EA players.

What EA background and portrait are you talking about?

Not EA or anything  as a matter of fact i never spent a cent on any skin in any game nor am i ever going to but i do understand why this bothers people and they are right.

 

The value of an item is derived from the meaning and rarity of that item.

Skins given from events should stay that way or at the very least be only droppable ingame at extremely low drop rates.

 

Or they could use the skin itself but color it some other way, so that the initial item retains its rarity and special status but also new players can get the skin if they like it so much. Even a small color change can make the difference.

It was a simple skin in the game that should've stayed exclusive, it is not a collection as it was given as early access award and it was said that it was given for that.

If you are going to get upset over that, shouldn't you be more upset that the two skins promised as preorder exclusives for the WeGame release of the game as a token of appreciation to players who helped kickstart the far more profitable Chinese version of the game are now available for everyone (with enough klei points)?

Yeah EA thought "being around in the early days" means something, but apparently not everyone think the same, for example, "doing the hardest boss/challenge on the hardest setting like the Ghost of Tsushima Legends wooden sword skin for beating "hell" mode perfectly" is valued more by you. 

Yeah 100%.

Now flip the situation. Why were people so upset there was 1 skin they couldnt get? 

Console has always been shafted. Whether you own hamlet and shipwrecked or not you don't get those skins. Regardless of when you started no EA skins. Tons of rare skins that cannot be bought or weaved and you can only get as a miracle daily/weekly drop. PS is the worst as we aren't even being included in this whole skins transfer thing. There are many rare or near unobtainable skins on console. Anything that reduces this is in my eyes a good thing. I'm not a fan of locked cosmetics. Everything should be available to eventually obtain or unlock for everyone. Preorder skins are also super dumb especially given these days they're generally obtainable any way or are not and either suck (if they include actual stats etc) at a certain point or are too good and are pay to win items.

It's more than 1 skin.

Why are you so upset over skins in a videogame?

Wow troll bait much? I was shocked that others are upset about the skin now being available and even specifically said "chill out" in regards to it.

This thread is essentially class warfare in a nutshell.

Right cuz non EA players really are a systematically oppressed group of people who have the surplus value of their labour stolen by the minority EA players. Very clever.

Because those ‘some’ people were there to support the game when it mattered the most in the beginning. Thats how exclusive EA bonuses/perks work. 

I mean I don't have the skin and played the OG DS since it dropped on playstation and the same for DST..never knew I had the option to get the skin..but because I don't have it, does that mean I haven't been supporting the game since the beginning?

 

Let me make it clear I like skins, and understand the gatekeeping associated with having rare ones but idc if It's available or not. It would be nice but that's about it.

Woaa ¡

There's really ppl upset/disagree with the skin to be available & there's also ppl upset/disagree for the skin to NOT be available before.

This world is nuts.

They need to release the Proof of Purchase skins on the point store. It's not fair to gatekeep them and everyone is entitled to get them /s

Honestly what would be so wrong about that? Especially if they were pretty expensive in Klei points. Sure they’d no longer be exclusive to the Beta or Funko Pop doll or whatever that you bought- but the REWARD you get is saving the 5000 Klei points you would’ve redeemed on that skin to redeem on other skins you don’t own.

It’s unlikely that the Proof of Purchase or Funko Doll skins will ever be added to Klei Rewards, but I’m just giving an example of why it’s possible.

I was more so referring to how people like yourselves are gatekeeping others from having something you probably have.

It was more so a joke rather than a serious remark, but also a little bit of a jab too :>
