    Yep.

    And I've gotten about 6 Phoenix cases now, and no Shadow's!

    Meanwhile, Timmy McNewb on 0/21 gets one on his first map. Knowing my luck he probably got a knife as well!

    Got a falchion case on my main, hopped over to smurf first game get a shadow, easiest $10~ ever, don't know why anyone would buy the cases when it first releases, such a waste of money. Just like buying the skins at their inflated prices on release, everyone knows they're going to drop hard but people still buy them, meh.

    haha yeah i got a older case today as a drop but had a guy bragging about his new knife drop first case.

    So much random luck involved its a little annoying. ie had a friend come back after only playing 10 or so hours before the drop system and he has unboxed 6-7 stat tracks + some really nice skins. All my keys have got me is SMG/shotgun skins or doubleups on stuff that has random dropped...

    Kinda of like a friend of mine, I got him into the game and he has the most retarded luck opening cases. Always getting pink stattraks, reds etc. I was on Team Speak with him one day and he goes "What are these Bravo cases and why are they so expensive?" So I explained to him that they were one of the earlier cases released and so there are less of them and they contain the most sought after AK47 skin. The he's like; fuck it I'll buy and open one! I said don't because they are like $10 with a key, Nek Minnit.....he opens a bloody Karambit Crimson Web Minimal Wear......

    And another story with him; I was watching all of the matches during the last Major Tournament in the hope of a Souvineer Case drop. When I told him that you could get drops from watching matches he asked me how and so I told him. Now this is a guy who has never cared or watched a Pro Match ever and the VERY FIRST AND ONLY match he watched he got a $40 Cobblestone case drop!!! I watched every single match and got 1 shitty Inferno case worth $1 or something :(

    Put my stat trak awp hyper beast (FT) on csgo lounge trade.

    I remember now why i havent been on there in soooooo long. The trade scams are relentless. Even some with a trade on csgl for a factory new m4a4 modern hunter, but you got to his account and its the only skin he has and its in min wear conditon, $16 value instead of $350. It's just sad.

    GG volvo, my internet dropped out so i lost connection to the server. internet came back up and there is no rejoin option. But instead it lets me search for a new comp game.

    Same as any other "lucky gambler friend"... you aren't hearing about all the fails, just the wins. He's probably going through a tonne of cases.

    Pretty sure unlocking any cases is -EV anyway.

    opened my first shadow case and then a falcion ( spelling ) case, got some crappy stuff, my dueling dragons were worth about 5 bux the other day, should have sold them to recover the cost of the keys but kept them, now they are worth 1$ lol.

    the rest of the stuff i got is worth 0.5 cents :thumbup:

    If any of you are on late ( after midnight ) add me, HERE

    Currently playing as Percy inglis Supremebeing for the lulz :thumbup:

    Cases are shit, better off buying the skins you want off the market, save a lot of money. That's coming from someone that's opened ~$400 USD and a $1000+ USD knife.

    If you want to simulate opening a case, just paypal me $2.50, and I'll paypal you back 5c.

    Hah yep that about sums it up!

    Unless you're one of those lucky types who gets a knife or an unusual in TF2. I probably paid for Gabe's retirement with all the keys I've purchased for no return :(
