[PSA] Operation Riptide

kantaround

casual players will sell whatever they can find in their inven to buy pass, time to invest boys.


trollstedt

Glove case riiiiiip


CreamEgg

What's the best thing to invest in right now, any suggestions?


kantaround

i will wait for few more hours then buy clutch, danger zone and broken fang cases.


CreamEgg

ok thanks for suggestion. Would the eSports 2013 Winter Case be any good to invest i see it's went from around £3.30 to £2.30 recently?


Vashyo

Don't put all your eggs in one basket. You could also snatch breakout cases and glove cases way cheaper now that the prices did a nosedive, those are really popular cases.


bitcornbuyer

invest😂😂😂😂🤡🤡🤡 rip money edit, funny to see crybaby’s downvote because they think they can make money on a game


oOMeowthOo

I can't believe they finally released a golden AK-47 ... https://cdn.akamai.steamstatic.com/apps/csgo/images/operationriptide/dust/dust.ak.png


MidnightDeathNoodle

Valve is the most unpredictable guy in the universe.


bitcornbuyer

next update; fixed prices, trade ban for everybody. HAHAHAH please valve do it, rekt these kids


C0SM1C

Regarding: \*\*\* Rarity tears for collections, 100 stars for covert, 20 for Classified etc. So fixed cost for the operation skins...no more out of market priced skins lie Awp Gungnir Unsure if this is true, the pic only displays the train collection which is the only new collection without light blues or greys...


Blain87

Corrected it, servers have been sketchy and updated based on some screenshots others posted. Seems to only apply to the Train collection.


JJabMann

I wonder why they picked the train collection specifically, maybe it will rotate through the collections every so often? im not gonna gamble stars until I know for sure but that's just me


Blain87

Only the train collection has mil-spec through covert grades. The other collections have Consumer through covert grades.


JJabMann

I didn't realize that, thanks for pointing that out.


Cavannah

Before the steam network went down, it looked like some collections were the same as past ones (where you invest stars to roll on any weapon from the collection) while there was a separate "tab" for the targeted skin drops, which of course cost more stars.


corinarh

How many stars you can get per operation? EDIT: it's just 100 stars well that's weak, all that work for single covert skin...


LoneStarHero

Nah done worry, you get 101


TheFinalMetroid

That's only for the train collection


tomspicy

these skins are insane, good work valve


zozo147

So this means this case is very likely a good investment, right? How long does the operation last? Best to wait until the prices drop on teh cases


Vaekys

The case isn't even available to market at the moment. But it should become available after week 2 or 3


tomspicy

probably good but honestly i got no idea i’m a rookie here lol


lucasgabriel7

huge W for norse and canals tradeup food holders. Also the new collections looks dope, get everything for train (just to be clear i'm talking about the current train not the old train), they will not be in any drops.


lucasgabriel7

Also something to add, interested to see what kind of gold you get of the case. (At the moment of posting this, there is no info about). That gold AK looks clean.


Ishaan863

> huge W for norse and canals tradeup food holders. sorry I don't understand this, what do you mean?


7yasai

I am incredibly slow in the head, so you're saying old collection skins can potentially trade up to newer ones? EDIT: I think I'm retarded and the answer is no


AeLilBoy

Good job


Monkeyfarts1234

wait do i now buy up old train collection because it will skyrocket price as it isn't dropping as there is a new version


csmonigo

they are trash


FUTURE10S

Exactly why you buy them up, tradeup fuel


TheAbrableOnetyOne

Not the same collection. These are 2 different collection. That's why the new one has the "2021" suffix


FUTURE10S

But does that still mean the original drops? The new number implies it doesn't.


TheAbrableOnetyOne

Still to be determined


Quirky_Archer

RIP broken fang prices


Juansa7X

shouldnt broken fang skins go up in some time since they're not in this operation?


ethiczz

Hard to say. Broken Fang skins are very overinvested, which was also influenced by the fact that you could buy whatever collection you want and didn't have to gamble on what skin you get like in Shattered Web.


Im-4

Golden ak. Csgo becoming more like dota and tf2 lol


bitcornbuyer

yea csgo is ruined years ago


chrion

Valve building up hype before the major, and keeping it alive after the major with the dreams and nightmares case. This next half year will be crazy


lucasgabriel7

Anomaly posted some of the new finishes on the butterfly knifes: [https://twitter.com/anomalyxd/status/1440502198069125120](https://twitter.com/anomalyxd/status/1440502198069125120) Veredict: SHEEEESH


leonidas_164

rip breakout case?


lucasgabriel7

as a right now i would say no due they still drop butterfly, lets see how much the cases cost in a week.


xseraphx

What do you guys think happens to old bfk knive finishes? Drop in value cuz more supply of bfk knives on market, or temporary drop and up after because less supply of old finishes compared to new finishes?


Jloureiro55

Butterflies are already inflated so probably they are going down a bit.


lucasgabriel7

Officially out: https://twitter.com/CSGO/status/1440495788308590598


Clash_Bot1

Are the Riptide cases tradable/marketable ? Cause I can't see any listing on the market


bhavneet1996

7 days cooldown


axemax92

7 days market cooldown?


Vaekys

It will be available to market after week 1


corinarh

https://twitter.com/hobshytv/status/1440506296025825283?s=20


TwinkSkrink

Time to grind boys, daddy needs another $15 agent skin


scout21078

oh hey theres the glock they leaked last op lol


throwaway12245774939

I thought itd be a terrible glock from that leak but now that its in the game i want it XD


RALPHRALPHPOGI

How do you manage the new cases horde them then sell them after 7 day trade ban or wait until supplies gone out?


master35475

Will be interesting if you can buy stars for the gamma Doppler red (and if the other reds are going in rotation), that gives the operation reds a price floor which is something we haven’t seen before


TheKingInNorth0

Can't login right now but why there are no cases in the market?


LordPa1n

7 day cooldown.


Nie_nemozes

They actually overdid themselves with these skins holy shit I love most of them. And the agents!! I hoped they'd add the classics from old Counter Strike ever since Shattered Web agents were added


griffinPongo

Why does the new case do not have any listings in the market?


Vaekys

It becomes available after week 1


AugustusFarenly

Is it a good investment for a beginner? I don't have anything good and think I could afford this pass. Is it worth it? Any advice is welcome:)


Mentleman

most of the time you get your money back from the pass. with some luck you can profit.


AugustusFarenly

So is it better to wait till the case price is revealed or ok to buy now? Also what should I hold on to. Should I buy the cases with the stars or anything else? Thanks btw ;)


Mentleman

if you want to play it safe, wait with buying the pass untill you know the price of the cases. their price will drop over the coming weeks, but you'll have a ballpark. also cases are not going to drop below the price the buyable stars guarantee. then you can math out how many cases you need to sell to break even and see if it'd be worth it for you. last operation i just played the missions and got the pass in the last week, still got profit from selling cases and put the remaining stars into some skins. at 50ct/case and 2 stars/case you can sell for 21.25€. easy bucks if you'd play the missions anyways. going in early is riskier but also has more potential for profit.


elp1x3l

Thinking of investing in the Riptide cases but not sure if it's worth it rn because of the trade cooldown and not knowing how much they'll cost next week. If I get at least 1.5 for each that would give me some profit. May I ask for some advice. First time buying operation.


bitcornbuyer

dont try to invest in this shit, people are gonna downvote me idc, but its the reality. 95% ppl lose money on skins. buy some crypto, u will thank me later


yoppsmol

how will it affect the market in general? what about old knifes, gloves aso..? would appreciate any guess from an experienced investor.. I've been looking for a good opportunity to buy a glove knife combo for myself but they went waaay to high.


OhioIsOkayIGuess

I already got the new huntsman black laminate, how much you think i could get for that when it's tradable?


rustyval

Dang its easier to get the covert items now...Looks like they are trying to compete with valorant in terms of buying high tier skins. Edit: Lame it looks the only map collection you can spend stars is from the train collection.


Poldank

Holy fuck im so hyped


RG_PhoniQue

Well rip to me. Bought my first butterfly knife 2 days ago as a birthday gift to myself. 30% down already in value... At least it's not a 100% butterfly case and people are gonna get buttplugs and Bowie knives so there won't be **that** many butterflies.


bitcornbuyer

lol, this isnt an investment, its a game and people still fail to understand, everything will drop, less people playing, covid over, less buyers, lower sales, one big domino effect


RG_PhoniQue

We've all been hearing this since 2015 and look what has happened these years. We've just had the best patch of the last 3 years. Game ain't going nowhere.


Neds9kelly

He's just mad noone is bidding on his NFTs


FilipDominik

How much does the new pass cost?


shreyanshksp

about 10 dollars


FilipDominik

yes thank you, €12.15


Lollystok

do i buy new collection skins right now or later today?


shreyanshksp

Don't ever think about buying new skins right away. Wait for some time.


aquilaPUR

So my first instinct, though its impossible to predict how the whole thing will turn out, is to not invest in the Coverts people can just choose, right? Right now it is only Train, but maybe it rotates to other Collections as well. If thats the case, I think the collections will be less worth overall, because the value of these skins come from their trade up potential, and if everyone already has the covert, thats an issue. The Covert itself will of course not be used in trade ups, so despite them being coverts and not obtainable after the operation, I think so many people will get them that they still will be underwhelming in the long run, because there will be so many and they are not going anywhere, unlike lower tier collection skins which are usually used for trade up fodder, driving the prices up slowly but surely (as seen with previous operations) so yeah, gotta wait and see whats best to invest in here.


Smurfyzz

Why would it rotate when the other collections only have 1 covert?


aquilaPUR

Why would they allow people to pick at all? Valve works in weird ways sometimes I really dont know anymore


Smurfyzz

Maybe so, but the train collection has 2 coverts, therefore its not forsure you're paying for that skin. If they rotate the collection, that means valve is just pricing the AWP/Gold AK at a set $45, which is dumb and they have never done that.


HaggSTABIL

Absolutely agree.

Nie_nemozes

100%, I doubt anyone expected an operation so soon, the new skins are crazy AND there are long awaited new Gamma knives


Kinuli2k

Will old operation skins available in this operation?


HAK987

No


MohammadAhadKhan

time to invest in riptide cases! doppler Bfks Omfgggggg!


F_A_F

Worth mentioning that newer collections for map collections may increase the value of old souvenir cases in time. The AK black laminate for example; Vertigo case should see rises.


TaxShield

Is the Train 2021 limited? Or will it come back in the next operation?


Patawette

I got Bowie knife


7yasai

Part of me wants to just hoard cases but that Desert Hydra makes my financial weenie feel weird. Part of me thinks it might be worth dumping a bit into stars to try and gamble for it in case it ends up costing a fucking bomb (a la gungnir) later but the fact that only one of the map collections has the price tier system makes me think they might rotate them every week (notice how the number of collections divides into the number of weeks for this op). Leet Museo has to be my new favourite AK so I'll definitely buy one of those in time.


itz_MaXii

Predictions on the price of the case after the 7 days?

crs1948fcd

Hi, i need to finish the operation and i need some friends for that - i can help with some missions as well, my friend code is S2ZKJ-WZVL so add me if you need help and if you can provide a bit of help :)


bitcornbuyer

shitty skins, csgo is ruined for good, stars to get covert easily lol. whole market rekt. cant believe people try to think about ‘investing’ 😂😂 fun part is that if everybody does this u create a bubble which will pop. it already did last months and people wont learn so they will do it again. gg


shreyanshksp

the purple skins of other collections are pretty expensive.


bitcornbuyer

no one cares, its just listed so every fool can make up a random price. always the same. in 2 years u can get them for pennies


shreyanshksp

Bet you do not know anything about CSGO market, Chinese people are going crazy and the price of high tier items are going crazy. The sticker Capsule I bought in 2017 for 5 euros now sold for 49 euros how about that


bitcornbuyer

hahahah kid, im in csgo since the release, i scraped kato14 titans because it was fun. there is no european market, us market is small, chinese market is big but its dropping hard last months. people are leaving because covid is gone, they invest in crypto now, not shitty csgo skins, why do u think there is crypto cashout sites? there is huge demand.


KrapnekRendezvous

Already bought some dust 2 2021 restricted FN. Maybe went too early? Well, TO THE MOON
