    So I guess I'll just write it off as being duped. At least I learned early not to spend money on this game.

      Seems that random engine backfire against the dota2 chest system -

      In tf2, each crates contain 8-10 items so if that one wants a particular item,
      he would open 4-5 crates and gets repeats before uncrating the weapon/hat he's looking for.

      However, given the numbers of differents items in each crate in a dota 2 crates,
      it is at least twice harder (or trice if the content is as large as the international or diretide chest),
      so that player would open way more before reaching the desired item,
      and the repeating feature adds up even more, so much somes here already gave up.

        I opened 9 boxes, got 3 comb of death prophet, 2 sash of prophet, 2 comb of TA and 1 sb 1 warlock.

          It's the same in TF2.

          It would be really nice if there was some sort of PSUEDO-RNG that kept you from never getting rares and always getting the same item though.

          I played over 200 games of Diretide and only got 1 unusual essence, for example, when some people played 10 games and got 3.

            I played around 200 games of DT as well. I got mythic NP tree modifier, shadow essence, 2 unusuals. But I am fine and very happy with the items I won from DT, I think I got less dupes from DT than I did from leveling up/random item wins during regular games.

              i opened 3 chests and i got baby rosh on my second... you are just unlucky


              • #22
                I've opened ~20 chests and gotten 2 unusual couriers and a baby rosh, which more than covered my initial investment.

                  My personal opinion is that keys should be cheaper. $2.50 for a key in TF2 makes sense because you can get weapons that differ from the default weapon (and they're strange unlike diretide/summer chests). In DotA 2 items are purely cosmetic and don't change the way the hero functions at all (nor should it) so $2.50 for a little item that might even be a noticeable change from the default is just too much.

                  That being said, the game is free. So I cannot demand that they lower their prices, only voice my opinion that paying $2.50 for a random non-strange/non-unusual item is not worth the price.
