It’s hard to dispute that even close to two months after launch, Anthem isn’t in a very good spot right now. The community is not happy with where the game is, and how the loot system works, and it seems one issue keeps cropping up one after another.
Well, it looks like yet another thing to gripe about has arisen today. Over on the Anthem subreddit, user Ryknor started a thread titled “Laziness over 9000!!!” which is a dig at the BioWare devs being lazy when it comes to the game’s cosmetics. Jokingly, the poster comments on how to make a good vinyl — what Anthem calls its cosmetic visual overlays — is to just rotate the icon a few degrees, change its color and call it a day. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what BioWare did for this Anthem duplicate vinyl! Below, you’ll see the decal “Rattle and Bite” side by side with the “End Times” decal, and well, I’ll let you decide how different these two “Uncommon” Anthem vinyls are.
I don’t know about you, but this Anthem vinyl should just be one and the same, right? That said, I’m not a developer, so what do I know.
Do you think this is a cause for concern, or just overreaction on the community’s end? Sound off and let us know in the comments below.
