Nowadays, it is common for players to buy skins in games. Since Valve launched weapon skins in its two classic games, CS: Go and TF2, other game makers have also begun to launch skin systems. This will not only allow the game to add new content, but also attract more players. However, some skins have caused great controversy for various reasons. Here we will share the game skins that are full of controversy and banned with players.
On Halloween in 2019, the official launch a new reward system and a Halloween limited skin. Among them, there are skeletons, pirates, wizards, and lions, the king of beasts. However, shortly after this series of skins went online, the lion-shaped costume was urgently removed from the shelves.
The tail of this suit has caused controversy because of the game’s physical system. Whenever the player jumps from the cabin, the tail will not only not flutter with the wind, but will stay in a strange position, so it is normal for the official to take it off the shelf.
League of Legends
As a game with a super variety of skins, there must be some problematic skins in it. Most of the problems are caused by bugs, some make the enemy’s moves unclear, and some become very strong after changing the skin. In the past, Ammu and Britz were about to launch the same series of skins.
When the trailers for these two skins were launched, players were very much looking forward to the arrival of the skins. Unexpectedly, after the skin passed the public beta, it would be scolded by players. This is because the skin looks very rough and does not reach the official standard level. After careful calculations, Riot Club decided not to optimize it and chose to remove it directly.
Fortnite, as one of the famous battle royale games, will launch a series of new skins every festive season. In the Boundless series last September, skins related to superheroes were introduced. Although it didn’t seem to be a problem, it was officially removed. This is because many players say that the skins of this series are obviously Pay-to-win.
Because the skins of this series can adjust their colors, many players have adjusted these skins to solid colors so that they can easily hide and attack other players. After some official repairs, the skins of this series have returned to the game, but they are still prohibited from being used in professional leagues.
Rainbow Six Siege
In Rainbow Six Siege, players can replace their favorite special operators with their favorite skins. Before, the official launched a season skin called Ember Rise. Because the skin is very ugly, so many players feel dissatisfied. But after a while, many professional players began to use these skins, because the skins in this series look very similar to the surrounding scenes in terms of color.
Even R6 legend Pengu once expressed dissatisfaction with this in the live broadcast. He said that he hates this series of skins very much, because it has a special hidden ability, and even some professional teams will force players to buy those skins. After all, these skins represent the higher the winning rate. With that, the skins of this series are also removed.
CS: GO, as the ancestor of the game skin culture, must have many types of skins. Just two years ago, the official launched a Season Pass with Shattered Web as the theme. It contains several brand new character skins, but one skin has caused a lot of controversy.
Players can find that in this skin, green occupies a large part. Players use this skin to hide in the corners of the map in order to win. Therefore, ESEA and FACEIT, the well-known CSGO e-sports organizing units, announced that players are prohibited from using this skin in the game.
Street Fighter V
As Capcom’s very classic fighting game, Street Fighter V often hosts professional leagues all over the world. However, in the Capcom Pro Tour a few years ago, Capcom banned players from using a skin in the game. This skin is used for the character of Gill.
Although it looks very cool, it gives players a little advantage. Because as long as you wear this skin, the color of your body can conceal one’s ultimatum, allowing the enemy to be attacked without knowing it. Therefore, it is normal for this skin to be banned.
Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3
Magneto is a character who appeared in Marvel Comics X-Men. Previously, Marvel changed the costume of Magneto in the comics to the same style as the King of Spain at the time. In response, the Spanish royal family sued, and Marvel also apologized to the other party. Subsequently, Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 was launched, and when this game was announced, it was mentioned that the Magneto in the game will have the skin of the King of Spain.
The Spanish royal family was very angry after seeing the case, so they prosecuted it again and took related legal actions. Later, the skin was also forced to be removed from the game.
The above is the game skin that is full of controversy and banned, what do players think about it.
