I opened 7 boxes and nothing, this event is for take our money

Yeah, sadly all of these limited time events have been designed solely to encourage buying loot boxes. That's why the limited time items cost 3 times more than the regular items of the same rarity color. It's all a big ripoff, and that sucks because I really want both the Mei and D.Va skins yet I can only afford to buy one with the in-game currency, so now I have to pray for a miracle (7 lootboxes so far and the rarest event item I've received is a voice line).

This still counting all the people who played for free that weekend back in like October and haven't purchased it? How about telling us the amount who just played in December? You know around Christmas. That will give us a real view of the actual sustained popularity of it.
