I don't see a point for skins. You don't even see ur own character in-game anyways.

The point of skins and character heads is basically Gearbox's way of pooping all over your hopes. See, you may think: "Yeah, sure, it's just a color-scheme or a new hat. How hard could it be to get?"

...then before you know it, you've been farming varkids for six hours to get Verm to spawn, never realizing the drop-rate for most of the rare skins/heads is actually lower than most Legendary weapons.

That's the worst part of it. I've been killing the assassins, mostly to complete challenges on the way, and 3 Emporers dropped but no skins. That was during over 900 kills for the crouching tiger challenge.

The point of being able to tell who is who and that everyone won't look the same.

I will admit though the effort in trading and LF topics for skins is just silly.
