"A curated bundle of games sent to your inbox every month. Redeem on Blizzard and keep them forever."

This is...confusing. It sure makes it sound like the entire bundle is Blizzard-only. But there aren't enough buy-to-play games on the Blizzard launcher for that even to be true (unless they're like "here's Warcraft 1, Warcraft 2, Diablo 1," etc)

Also: What's the charity this month? Seems to be missing..

Haven't had a chance to look into the details, I couldn't be in front of a suitable device by the time it unlocked, and I'm playing catch up now :)

No rush, we got a month to figure it out. I may honestly contact Humble support to ask if it comes to it.

On one hand everyone agrees Overwatch is a finally wrought game (albeit filled with Blizzard's obnoxious lore) but on the other hand it's a small team game and I have zero patience for online toxicity.

For Destiny 2 month they said Redeem on Blizzard and it was the only unlock for It was a different monthly page design but I think its only for the early unlocks.

No sign of which charity it supports.

Looks to me, like the usual "Redeem on Steam" has been search-and-replace'd or something along the lines.

Originally posted by Aerothorn:

While not directly relevant, my experience in HotS was that, if one kept reading, they could very well end assuming the game is a hopeless, massively toxic trainwreck.

In practice, my online experience was overwhelmingly toxicity-free: most games were neither toxic nor a heaven of friendliness and cooperation, so not a lot of reasons for people to write stories, or rants, about them.

From what little I know, the Overwatch team had also made implementing systems that are intended to prevent or minimize toxicity one of their priorities.

Last time I checked, they came up with a mechanism for players to reward good plays from team mates, and changed the match maker so that players could pick a role, and tell the game what kind of team composition they are looking for.

FWIW, I've only played one (1) match of Overwatch. I had no idea what was going on, was even more useless than a headless chicken, nobody flamed me, the game ended quickly.

Polygon reports the charity is the Make-A-Wish foundation. Which is actually a terrible charity (in terms of their efficacy in making the world a better place, not in the sense that they're nefarious) - it's one people just pick for feel-good apolitical non-change. Sigh.

Since we're not getting sliders, I wish they would at least give us the option to turn off donating to charity in Monthlies.

On regular bundles I only set the charity slider to non-zero values in special occasions, most of the time I want the devs to have the money.
Aerothorn Sep 8, 2018 @ 6:50pm 
I'm the opposite, I tend to bump charity up and reduce Humble Tip some, and apportion to devs based on whether I already own their game and what really drove me to the bundle.

I think for monthly they don't apportion because the contract is different - they guarantee X dollars to Blizzard, so you can't pay them less than that.
Aerothorn Sep 8, 2018 @ 6:51pm 
Also it turns out Overwatch has the single worst colorblind support of any game I've ever played, which is honestly shocking (by which I mean that, unlike many games, it includes colorblind options - but those options make it *even harder* to differentia than playing the game without them!).
Aerothorn Sep 8, 2018 @ 6:51pm 
(Apparently the Doom remake included filters that just simulated colorblindness rather than correcting it, for reasons nobody is clear on)
weirdfish Sep 9, 2018 @ 2:07pm 
Normally I set the tip to around 15%. It would boggle my mind if something were to happen to Humble because people mess with the tip slider.

I mean, probably my concerns are excessive, but there are vocal pockets on the Internet that claim to make a point of setting the tip slider to 0.

Worse, I've seen talk about regularly setting bundles 100% to charity, which hurts both Humble AND the devs, and for no good reason, really, if you're buying the games. And worse still if those games are then sold or traded.

I also generally set individual sliders to zero for game that I already own, or rate as not interesting to me.

But that's because it lets me increase the sliders for the games I'm interested into, given that devs are already going to receive a pittance for their work.
