Jeff Kaplan, Game Director for Overwatch, took to Battle.net to apologize after a backlash from the community over Mei’s Legendary Holiday Skin from the Christmas event “Winter Wonderland.”
Hi there. Sorry you are disappointed with Mei’s winter skin. We don’t have a specific rule for what makes something Legendary or Epic. We just sort of make a gut call based off of what we think is cool. Coolness is very subjective, and based off of the community reaction it seems like our gauge was off on this one.
