There have been intermittent alternatives to get skins from Twitch Drops and finishing seasonal occasion challenges, however these have been minimal at greatest and largely are previous skins that previous gamers have already got.
Talking speculatively, the almost definitely change coming within the new season would in all probability be to earn a number of the sport’s microtransaction foreign money, Overwatch Cash, extra readily.

Giving gamers extra to earn would additionally assist some gamers spend a bit extra on the sport, which everyone knows is what Blizzard desires. It will be good for each side.
