I've posted about Airlifts plenty of times before and I'll continue to do so as long as DICE remains quiet about it. Dan Mitre (/u/danmitre) has been teasing an Airlift blog for almost three weeks, and despite it appearing on this past Thurday's schedule slated in 'This Week in Battlefield', that blog never happened. It seems that DICE really doesn't give a fu*k about how broken and uninspiring the Airlifts are. Bear in mind that you paid $80 for a Deluxe Edition under the pretense of being part of the Airlift system –– you can talk about how Deluxe edition included other benefits all you want, but an advertised feature of the Deluxe Edition that Dan has literally acknowledged as broken 26 days ago.
So as it stands:
Since launch, they have not addressed player concerns. The purported Airlift blog hasn't happened for weeks and weeks, and when it was scheduled, it just decided to not happen.
Some players haven't received any. 1 2 3
The items released thusfar are fragments of whole skin sets, thusfar for the SG1-5 and KE7. Some people have gotten various pieces at varying times but there doesn't seem to be a lot of consistency between folks.
One person reported getting a jacket, but recently Blockade Runner pants have come out… which are only a very slight recoloring of the Medic level 10 pants.
People don’t really know what they are.
People don’t know what to expect.
They… sometimes?… show up in your Shipments without any indication. I received Blockade Runner pants on Wednesday and then also a duplicate of them on Friday.
They’re mismatched and seemingly random, despite supposed to have been consistent across the board. Even if you account for people redeeming their Deluxe Edition at different times, we shouldn't have such wild variation across the board.
They’re shit. Total garbage. Piecemeal skin fragments for some default guns, but not all default guns, an emblem, a random skinned pistol, and some parts of outfits. They may yield two complete skins for two default guns, which are neither rare skins nor are they really good-looking.
There is no justification for a preorder bonus being so incomprehensibly shitty that a company is too embarrassed to even mention it. I will personally vow to never purchase a Deluxe Edition from DICE/EA again and I've seen similar sentiment in past threads about the issue. Bethesda fu*ked up the Fallout 76 launch with the canvas bags, but at least they acknowledged it and tried to fix things.
Man the fu*k up, DICE.
