I do believe it would be a nice idea if Epic does a bit more with skins/emotes/etc. with both StW and BR.
StW actually could have skins. It's silly that you have to run around looking like an Easter/Christmas/Halloween/etc. character all year long. Let StW heroes be a set of perks in a certain (sub-)class and let us use a different look (skin) from another hero from the same (sub-)class.
So basically when you unlock a new Hero in StW, you get a new item that has all the perks which you level up and also unlocks a default skin for it which you can change for another skin that is for the same (sub-)class.
And it would be nice if we could have more emotes/dances in StW, they could make these work in both StW and BR. Due to a bug when BR Tier ups showed up once you switched to StW we've seen it's possible to make Penny do the BR emotes, the code is there, the UI/store isn't.
Plus BR skins could be assigned a corresponding StW Hero (sub-)class so when you unlock/buy one in BR it can be used in StW for an alternative look.
Of course then it would also be nice that skins from StW can be used in BR.
This would make buying an emote/skin way more meaningful and it might actually help with BR players wanting to actually play StW and not just farm vbucks because they also get new skins by playing StW in the way they should (by playing normally, by using some of the vbucks for llamas with a chance of a new Hero+skin which can be used in both modes).
Add in some skins that you can buy in the BR store, but can also unlock by actually playing StW in a normal way.
I also believe that it would make more sense now to buy emotes since you can then also use them in StW. Since I do play both, but play StW way more (and like it more) I would be inclined to buy a nice emote much faster if I could use it in StW.
For people who currently use StW as a means to an end (vbucks farming) it could entice better play.
I really do think this could be a win-win for players from both modes and Epic since I also believe people might actually spend more vbucks on both modes this way……
PS. A new cosmetics store could be added to StW which shares the same daily/weekly cosmetics with BR. Any skin that can be unlocked by playing BR (thru the BattlePass) can also be made to be unlocked by playing StW normally.
Please note: I'm not suggesting here that cosmetics should be made exclusive to one of the two modes, if something can be unlocked thru play in BR it should also be possible to unlock it thru play in StW. Though I do feel that having some things be usable in BR only be available if you play StW regularly as an incentive for Vbucks farmers to actually start to play the game as it's intended to be played.
PPS. Originally I posted this as a reply in another thread:
