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 think they mean item drops
i still havnt got anything lol
me too ahaahh
6 hours of playtime for me since item drops were introduced and not a single drop D:
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.
i've got 2 same drops, im lucky huh ? and 1 chest, gave it for another gun, really cool gun,( yeah i know it's 2.09$ on steam market)
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.
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.
And nothing will happen. Steam doesn't read reports.
Ever heard of idle servers ?
Why would I be playing in an idle server?
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?"
I won't quote myself, but hope you will understand.
"Why would I idle on regular server where people play?"
Laziness, stupidity, trolling, take your pick.
I wouldn't be complaining about it if it didn't happen.
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.
As long as you are in the game you get drops if you've played enough rounds. But it's pretty scummy to idle.
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
4 drops as well, waiting for reset
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.
Why do you incline valve puts false information on their FAQ page?
i got 4 drops as well
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.
I got over 9000.
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.
Do you know which day TF2 reset item drops?
Actually, the timer i looked at may have been wrong.
It can still be the same timer. In around 36 hours from this comment.A TF2 Item Drop Reset Timer
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.
btw.. Deathmatch and Gungame drops something ?? or just Competive?
all game mode you can get drops ofcourse only in valve servers.
Thank ya braza! :)
And what if in my or in the enemy team are bots? :|
not important i think i got my one item in game with bots.
Thank ya!! :)
I also got 4 drops, waiting for the weekly reset.
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.
Oh ok i though games are meant to be played and have fun, i was probably wrong nvm.
As long they don't idle I see no problem in it.
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.
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.
are you serious? we deserve a kick in a idle server because we are afk? lol
They weren't talking about idle servers, they were talking about idling on a normal server people try to play on.
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
got 2 skins and 2 cases... man this may be right
Same here, 2 skins and 2 cases (one eSports and one regular).
so, 4 drop 1 week ? 2x crate 2x skin ?
Yeah, and max 2 drops per day.
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.
When did you get first/last though. I've got 6 drops now, over about 8 days.
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.
It depends on when your "week" resets though, so those 6 items may have actually been spread across the border of 2 weeks.
Well, i played 5 days in a row. Dunno if it's one or two weeks for steam :D
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.
4 drops 1 game 4-1= 3.. HL3 confirmed
This crap is getting old.
"old" 3 letters, Half-Life 3 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.
You can buy them in-game for $2.49 as mentioned already, or go on the Steam Market and find them for less than.
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?
