Pestering the developers is par for the course of any average gamer. And doubly so when it comes to new additions to the game. in the recent April update, developers explain why it's not possible.

Developers have seen continued feedback surrounding the release of skins into the game, they say, and want to share with players why speeding this up can be tricky.

Existing skins in the Korean version were released before some classes, requiring art and development time to rig models with skins for newer classes and the special weapons that accompany them. In fact, some of this work for newer classes still needs to be done.

And, while Amazon are releasing skins at a faster rate than they originally came out in Korea, they admit that they also understand that they do not have the broad library of skins to select from like some of the other regions currently do.

And, though they would like to release all the skins currently available in Korea, for example, so players of all classes can enjoy new visuals, due to the abovementioned reasons, such a thing is not possible.

At the end of the day, Western players demand the things that other regions had to wait several times longer for. It must be pointed out that Amazon Game Studios is not AMazon itlesf, and they do not have the infinite resources we think they do.

So, we can take out a page of the average Korean player's book, and wait for the skins to come out as scheduled. Unless, of course, they run late, the way they are with the Roadmap.
