    Technically, they have no use being unusual either, since those couriers aren't available in normal quality. Well, unless they come in Tournament quality later on, like I speculated on basis of the blog post, but even then, it being unusual has not much use.
    Them being unusual is probably more related to the method of obtaining the items (opening chests), rather than them having special effects. Heck, for that matter, the very first Unusual item in TF2 - the Horseless Headless Horsemann's Headtaker - didn't have an effect either. Much alike the TI couriers, it had a native effect that was not mentioned in its description.
    To keep these forums clean and friendly, please read and follow the forum rules.
    Before making a new thread, be sure to have used search, as well as checking the stickies of the appropriate section.

      I really hope our Unusuals turn into this Tournament version, I would be really mad at Valve if they actually release both Unusual and Tournament, cause I've bought more than a 100 keys, and 2 days later they announce that there will be another courier version coming from the same chest, that will probably be worth more than the Unusual ones. They can't do that to people that already spent hundreds of dollars with International Keys.

        Makes more sense for the Unusual courier to have the particle effect, and the ones that drop during tournaments to not have them

          I would be pretty pissed if my "UNUSUAL" Drodo doesn't get an awesome blue effect or something.

            As long as these 3 couriers never appear again in game, so no drops after matches, not at store, and not in common crates I would be fine with the current effects. Otherwise I would be pissed as well!

              well, at the moment my Sunfire Frog courier looks better than my Drodo. He's more unique, sure. But he doesn't look any better.

                I understand what you're saying. My Lockjaw looks the same. I mean, the ''unusual'' effects look really usual.

                Example: A bird looses feather, that's normal, and also some birds eat fishes, still normal, so the current effects are usual situations from real life, why they should be unusual in Dota 2?

                  Ontop of that, the "normal" Dodro effect is pretty much non existant. You can barely see it if you don't zoom in completly.

                    Think about it.
                    How ridiculous it would be to have Murrissey the Smeevil (the one with blue particle effect) to possibly have etheral flame (whatever color. red, teal...) or felicity blessing. Or searing essence.. or burning animus.
                    It would look like sh*t.

                    Same goes for Drodo and Lockjaw.

                    They are unique because they won't be dropped anymore. Period.

                    Don't make them anymore unique. Indeed I would suggest that tournament couriers have no effects at all (that includes particle effects)

                      Did anybody get a courier by watching Mouz vs. WE game today? I just wanna know if it's the same as the unusual couriers we've got from chests.

                          I think I'll start using the pennant for the team with less spectators, since there is a random chance of getting items among all the spectators with pennants.

                              That sucks, 'cause now people who bought hundreds of dollars in keys, and eventually got an unusual courier find out that there is this ''Tournament'' version for those couriers, that are probably worth more than the unusual ones, and can be acquired for only 1 dollar (pennant price) and some luck.

                                Invest 2 Dollar for a chest and you have a greater chance getting a courier than from spectating a game. Where roughly 10 couriers are dropped but there are hundreds of spectators.
