  • Bad Communication about Drywiz Wizard

    I read the information about microplushies very carefully before investing in a Drywiz. First, the write-up on valve pages suggests strongly that this is a tournament exclusive. Secondly, the write-up on the valve store about the mail ordered eggs mentions only 10 designs, not the super special 11th.

    Then, i see this circulating widely on trade forums:

    Support tech Ash has basically confirmed that Drywiz will continue to drop.

    Well, I'm out a lot of money due to some pretty poor communication from Valve about what this item was about.

    Oh, and the 2012 TI tag is sort of sloppy too.

        So Valve doesn't feel so accountable when the rainbows cease to fart out of drywiz' arse? Note the lack of effect when used by Tong Fu in their final matches.

        And that broken tag. Please, please, let the tag remain unique to the first round of couriers.

        This is the "leak" that created confidence in many traders that the item would not drop again by the way:

        At the event you can buy a ball like this which will have 1 of 11 mini-plushies randomly in it.
        - Each mini-plushie comes with a code for a keyless chest which will give you an item.
        - One of the 11 plushies is a Shitty Wizard which you can take back to the shop in exchange for a " cool special item" (we were not told what).

        You're not exactly going to take your special mail ordered egg back to the shop to redeem it now, are you?

          indeed i have learned through repeat experience that things drop or don't for seemingly arbitrary reasons. pudge hooks and commanders' sets, anyone?
