I've gotten 4 drops since it started and I read from the Steam community forums that MOST people got 4 drops so far.

Anyone gotten more than that? And which day does the timer reset?

It's quite tiring to play so many rounds although it's a good game.

I've got 3 drops over about 12 hours of gameplay, so your theory might be correct.

I wish Valve would just announce how the drop system works so we don't need to guess.

From what I read and my own drops it's 2 crates and 2 skins.

You have to check your steam inventory. One of my drop didn't show up in the end game score screen and within CS GO inventory.

If it is anything like TF2, crates don't count towards your weekly drops.

What time is considered idling in official servers?

You have to complete matches to get drops. It's round played not time based like cards.

xboxer

(1 year ago)

Are you asking about time that is counted towards drops? Idling in CS:GO is very rude towards everyone else who are genuinely playing the game. I report idlers through Steam for "inappropriate behaviour" because I don't want some idler wasting my time sitting in the spawn zone, causing everyone to wait longer for drops.

Jonex

And nothing will happen. Steam doesn't read reports.

Right.

Ever heard of idle servers ?

Why would I be playing in an idle server?

Jonex

Same reason I log in to idle servers for TF2...

I'll quote myself so that you understand this time:

"Why would I be playing in an idle server?"

Jonex

(1 year ago)

I won't quote myself, but hope you will understand.

"Why would I idle on regular server where people play?"

RankoR

(1 year ago*)

Laziness, stupidity, trolling, take your pick.

I wouldn't be complaining about it if it didn't happen.

Jonex

(1 year ago)

Time is random, but I am asking if I am allowed to go smoke for like 2 minutes or the whole 15 minutes won't be counted towards drop.

Faltharis

(1 year ago)

As long as you are in the game you get drops if you've played enough rounds. But it's pretty scummy to idle.

xboxer

(1 year ago*)

People are very sensitive about idling right now.
I got kicked seconds after i joined a server because i took the liberty of replying to a Trader, my team was wiped out in the blink of an eye and even though i stood 20 meters away from spawn with a P250 in my hand, they thought i wouldn't come back.. probably could have won the round for them too..
So impatient.. It's not like i was gone for more than 15 seconds either..

My point is, idling won't get you very far on servers where people actually want to play, you'll get kicked in a heartbeat.

@Faltharis, if you know you'll be gone for 2 minutes, you either leave the server or you go into spectator mode, 2 minutes is too long to just stay around being useless.

since the drop system i got only 2 drops and i play CS GO almost every day

zelghadis (1 year ago)

4 drops as well, waiting for reset

SentoX (1 year ago)

4 drops seem about right, though i think i may have gotten 5.
2 Skins, 1 eSport case and 2 CS:GO cases, maybe the second CS:GO case never actually dropped and i'm just going crazy.

TRUCKER (1 year ago)

Why do you incline valve puts false information on their FAQ page?

etze (1 year ago)

i got 4 drops as well

Adry05 (1 year ago)

I got 4 drops too, 2 cases and 2 skins. I got it pretty fast like in 3-6h and didnt get nothing anymore in this days.

15outland (1 year ago)

I got over 9000.

Elrond9 (1 year ago)

A lot of people say i got 4 drops and nothing more same for me. some people talk about i got 5 and 6. but after the 4 drops your drop rate is extremly low. You have to be so luck or play too much time.

I just want to ask this. I was start to play last Saturday. Am i have to wait next Saturday for reset or valve has any day for reset drop ?

No, the Drops reset on a set time for everyone, it'd be a waste of resources to save when which person got his first item so that the reset can happen at that time, and it wouldn't be a very "clean" thing to do.

I'm curious when the actual reset time is though, i thought they would bind it to the same timer TF2 runs by, to make management easier, but apparently that isn't the case.

SentoX

(1 year ago)

Do you know which day TF2 reset item drops?

Elrond9

(1 year ago)

Actually, the timer i looked at may have been wrong.
It can still be the same timer. In around 36 hours from this comment.

After reading through the official FAQ, I noticed this:

Q: How do I earn decorated weapons by playing the game?
A: Weapon drops are awarded for play time over the course of a week. As your play time increases, the drop rate will slow down. The drop rate will reset when the week rolls over.

So technically I think people could get more than 4 drops, but who knows.

We have to learn reset day. I dont want to loose any item for CS GO.

I also got 4 drops, waiting for the weekly reset.

k3lt (1 year ago*)

Nobody else finds it disturbing that people basically play the game entirely for some drops?

nope,it's extremely normal,idling helps valve tho,they get money too with taxes when we idle,so it's normal.yes.

antipativome

(1 year ago)

Oh ok i though games are meant to be played and have fun, i was probably wrong nvm.

k3lt

(1 year ago*)

As long they don't idle I see no problem in it.

RanTH

(1 year ago)

as long as they don't cheat i don't see any problem in it,you just can't be angry with person who only idle...they get items and you too,it's regular,you can't bother about it until they don't use cheats or something,in that case you can be angry,if they idle you can't,because there is nothing to do to stop it.

antipativome

(1 year ago)

No, in any MP game when you are AFK or idling they are discouraged and deserve a kick. You are just wasting player slot if you are not helping to the team at all.

RanTH

(1 year ago)

are you serious? we deserve a kick in a idle server because we are afk? lol

antipativome

(1 year ago)

They weren't talking about idle servers, they were talking about idling on a normal server people try to play on.

SentoX

(1 year ago)

oh,i got it just now,the discussion started with Why you install the game just for drops and ended with you are a waste of a player slot in a server. XD

Sorry for the noob question but does anybody know if we can get items while playing with bots?

I've gotten some while playing on a barely empty server, just another guy and myself. Not sure about if it's just you, but that's as close as I've gotten. I think as long as it's an official server, you have a chance.

I've got 6 Drops. False Rumor!

When did you get first/last though. I've got 6 drops now, over about 8 days.

SeanBahamut

(11 months ago)

6 Drops in 5 Days. All together i have like 9 since Itemdrops were added. But yea, didnt get 1 drop in the last two days, tho i have only played 2 rounds of competetive.

ELMAAA

(11 months ago*)

It depends on when your "week" resets though, so those 6 items may have actually been spread across the border of 2 weeks.

SeanBahamut

(11 months ago)

Well, i played 5 days in a row. Dunno if it's one or two weeks for steam :D

ELMAAA

(11 months ago)

Well, for TF2 Thursday is when new weekly-drop starts.

Me and my cousin have been getting drops. He's gotten more than me though, also getting better unboxes than I am. Didn't get to hit the cap yet. We just play and mess around on a bunch of community servers until we get them.

Devil231 (11 months ago*)

4 drops 1 game 4-1= 3.. HL3 confirmed

forgive my stupidity here but how do we get keys to open the crates and such? do they also get dropped?

i dont play tf2 or dota so thats why i dont know i guess

Valve sells the keys.

ErrEff

(11 months ago)

You can buy them in-game for $2.49 as mentioned already, or go on the Steam Market and find them for less than.

AngryCharlie

(11 months ago*)

thanks for the info guys. im curious tho, why do people sell them for less? if the only way to get them is to buy from market why would someone buy them and then sell at a loss?
