This is a chance to account-bind some items that were not included in over-run before (such as the Head-mount items), or were not chosen from over-run before. For PC players who have played since PC launch, it is a chance to get Wallet Chain, Maid Hairband and the Laced Knee Socks set for the first time (so no account-binding there).
Keep an eye on the Head-mount items in tier 17. They were separate tier rewards in Season 4, so there is the risk we may be forced to choose between them in the same kind of disgusting dilemma we had that only allowed PC players to get half of the Season 1 content back in Season 5 (a mistake that remains unfixed to this date).
Beyond calling out how this is yet another terrible mixture of content that seriously needed to be re-run in its original form, there is another matter that could upset some PC players: What this does with the Season 3 outfits. Back in May PC got the game halfway through Season 3. Those of us who did all missions available could only get to tier 23. At the time I asked for this to be addressed so it wouldn't cause a content loss that would need addressing in the future, specifically for tiers 24-30.
Season 11 adds all the outfit sets from Season 3's tiers 05, 08, 18 and 18, that PC players previously had access to, and none of the outfit sets from tiers 27 (Hero's Quarter), 28 (Irisia Staff), 29 (Regia Parts set) or 30 (Rosemary Parts set) that PC players did not, and to this day have never been able to get.
The only real benefit this mess of a revival has is that it brings the players who started with Steam into parity with the rest of the PC player base when it comes to the outfits of Season 3: Now all PC players will be in the same boat of only ever having access to the first four outfits while never having access to the second four. But is that a good thing?
Honestly, this is getting ridiculous. How much feedback needs to be given before it'll sink in that messy mixtures of previous sets like this are not the way? It wasn't for AC scratches, it won't be for Mission Pass. Season 5 may have screwed PC players by demanding they sacrifice half of Season 1 (and never have any chance at the Rose Saber camo) which pre-PC players never needed to, but now this season mixes up revivals from three seasons, including parts of the PC-withheld 2?
This is not the solution. Giving grotty mismatching portions of past seasons that were missed in full will never be the solution, unless they are accompanied by explicitly-stated confirmation that all of the cosmetics - outfits, emotes, accessories, weapon camos, furnishings, everything - from Seasons 1-3 in particular will be spread out over the course of Seasons 11-16, and without forcing us to choose to sacrifice any of it like Season 5 did.
