Players of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive are no strangers to losing money as a result of reckless gambling, but this streamer lost over $11,000 in the process.
In the year 2022, there are approximately fifty EMS Katowice 2014 Legends capsules stowed away in various Steam accounts across the world. The game may soon run out of all remaining capsules, making them exceedingly expensive.
Buying a $12,000 capsule is hazardous, but gamers do it in hopes of profiting. However, the majority are let down by their expectations.
Recently, a Twitch streamer by the name of ohnePixel opened a Katowice 2014 Legends capsule, but he ended up losing a significant amount of money. Following the completion of the $12,000 capsule, he was awarded a $300 Ninjas in Pajamas sticker.
CSGO streamer deals thousands of dollars in damage to Katowice capsule
The video of ohnePixel opening his capsule has gone popular in the CSGO community for a reason that will tear your heart. The streamer activated a capsule with a value of $12,000 with the hopes of retrieving an expensive sticker from the legendary, one-of-a-kind object.
Instead, he was left with a cheap NiP sticker, leaving him at the point of tears as the slot machine stalled only an inch shy from the coveted Titan Holo.
Before rolling dice, the streamer said he wanted a $45,000 Titan Holo sticker. If he had gotten the shining sticker, it would have multiplied his investment by three. The fact that the machine was only one slot away from the incredibly desirable Titan Holo makes the situation much more upsetting.
Although it was a huge setback, ohnePixel’s popular video won him the support of gaming icons, including the official CSGO handle. It does not happen frequently that a streamer comes so close to winning $50,000 but ultimately walks away with a $300 sticker as their prize.
Sticker Capsules often headline a specific CS: GO tournament which is dubbed as the “Majors” They are extremely uncommon, may be stacked, and their value continues to rise over time. The explanation for this is straightforward: Valve distributes these extremely rare items for the duration of a major event.
After the conclusion of the event, the capsules will no longer be available for purchase in the game’s shop. Players can still get them through trading and Steam, but not at the official rate. The more scarce the capsule is, the higher the price will be.
