I personally hope that they reintroduce both. I always loved getting a little tidbit of lore about countries, with their biggest national holidays getting challenges for a representative charm. Many of the charms I got through these challenges are still being run on the operators from that country (like the Berlin Wall charm on some of my GSG9 folks).
As for the Birthday skins, who didn't like getting a free skin on an operator they may have just unlocked, or even on ones they'd had for a while! Sure the skins were kinda meh, but it was still just a fun little activity to keep you going. I remember waiting excitedly for a Nøkk birthday skin, wondering if they would even do it at all considering the mystery of her lore. But she was (and is) my favorite operator, so I figured there was no harm in hoping for it anyways.
But unfortunately for me, that day never came. And while it was somewhat hard to notice at first, but sometime around late Y5S1 and early Y5S2, the skins and charms just stopped coming. Maybe it was for COVID related reasons, maybe it was due to their seemingly low-popularity, or maybe it was for another reason Ubi told us that I just missed.
The only thing I can hope for now is either learning the reason they stopped coming or seeing their return. But I would like to know how the rest of y'all feel about their absence. Were they just annoying filler cosmetics that were better off removed or were they a fun little inclusion to the game that it doesn't feel the same without?
