Overwatch: Hero leaks, lockbox probabilities, and Korean political humor
As Asian countries are cracking down on online games with lockbox gambling, gaming companies are complying with transparency. To wit: Blizzard’s Chinese Overwatch website has published lockbox probability parameters. Here’s the paraphrase of the translation:
“Each lootbox will contain 4 items, including cosmetics or game currency for direct unlocking cosmetics. Each lootbox will contain at least one item of excellent or higher quality. An epic quality item will be availabe every 5.5 lootboxes on average. A legendary quality item will be availabe every 13.5 lootboxes on average.”

And finally: Kotaku had a fun piece yesterday on Sim Sang-jung’s run for the presidency of South Korea. She’s just savvy enough to have an Overwatch-themed video out. You don’t even need to speak the language to know she just won that match.
