[PSA] Operation Riptide
By - Blain87
casual players will sell whatever they can find in their inven to buy pass, time to invest boys.
Glove case riiiiiip
What's the best thing to invest in right now, any suggestions?
i will wait for few more hours then buy clutch, danger zone and broken fang cases.
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?
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.
invest😂😂😂😂🤡🤡🤡 rip money
edit, funny to see crybaby’s downvote because they think they can make money on a game
I can't believe they finally released a golden AK-47 ...
Wow they pulled out all the nice skins for this operation
That gold ak is SICK
Um, Gamma Doppler Butterfly ....
Fucking emersld bfly lets go
One bfk emerald was already unboxed, i cant belive it
Valve is the most unpredictable guy in the universe.
next update; fixed prices, trade ban for everybody. HAHAHAH please valve do it, rekt these kids
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...
Corrected it, servers have been sketchy and updated based on some screenshots others posted. Seems to only apply to the Train collection.
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
Only the train collection has mil-spec through covert grades. The other collections have Consumer through covert grades.
I didn't realize that, thanks for pointing that out.
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.
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...
Nah done worry, you get 101
That's only for the train collection
these skins are insane, good work valve
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
The case isn't even available to market at the moment. But it should become available after week 2 or 3
probably good but honestly i got no idea i’m a rookie here lol
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.
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.
> huge W for norse and canals tradeup food holders.
sorry I don't understand this, what do you mean?
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
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
they are trash
Exactly why you buy them up, tradeup fuel
Not the same collection. These are 2 different collection. That's why the new one has the "2021" suffix
But does that still mean the original drops? The new number implies it doesn't.
Still to be determined
RIP broken fang prices
shouldnt broken fang skins go up in some time since they're not in this operation?
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.
Golden ak. Csgo becoming more like dota and tf2 lol
yea csgo is ruined years ago
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
Anomaly posted some of the new finishes on the butterfly knifes: [https://twitter.com/anomalyxd/status/1440502198069125120](https://twitter.com/anomalyxd/status/1440502198069125120)
rip breakout case?
as a right now i would say no due they still drop butterfly, lets see how much the cases cost in a week.
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?
Butterflies are already inflated so probably they are going down a bit.
Officially out: https://twitter.com/CSGO/status/1440495788308590598
Are the Riptide cases tradable/marketable ? Cause I can't see any listing on the market
7 days cooldown
7 days market cooldown?
It will be available to market after week 1
Time to grind boys, daddy needs another $15 agent skin
oh hey theres the glock they leaked last op lol
I thought itd be a terrible glock from that leak but now that its in the game i want it XD
How do you manage the new cases horde them then sell them after 7 day trade ban or wait until supplies gone out?
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
Can't login right now but why there are no cases in the market?
7 day cooldown.
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
Why does the new case do not have any listings in the market?
It becomes available after week 1
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:)
most of the time you get your money back from the pass. with some luck you can profit.
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 ;)
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.
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.
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
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.
I already got the new huntsman black laminate, how much you think i could get for that when it's tradable?
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.
Holy fuck im so hyped
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.
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
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.
He's just mad noone is bidding on his NFTs
How much does the new pass cost?
about 10 dollars
yes thank you, €12.15
do i buy new collection skins right now or later today?
Don't ever think about buying new skins right away. Wait for some time.
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.
Why would it rotate when the other collections only have 1 covert?
Why would they allow people to pick at all? Valve works in weird ways sometimes I really dont know anymore
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.
100%, I doubt anyone expected an operation so soon, the new skins are crazy AND there are long awaited new Gamma knives
Will old operation skins available in this operation?
time to invest in riptide cases! doppler Bfks Omfgggggg!
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.
Is the Train 2021 limited? Or will it come back in the next operation?
I got Bowie knife
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.
Predictions on the price of the case after the 7 days?

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 :)
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
the purple skins of other collections are pretty expensive.
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
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
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.
Already bought some dust 2 2021 restricted FN. Maybe went too early? Well, TO THE MOON
