    CS:GO Questions - Skins/Trading/Etc.

    I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this so if not, tell me and I'll move it!

    So I hear a lot of people opinions on this stuff and I just wanna know what you guys think. Is it even worth it to buy a knife? Here's my reasoning for whether it'd be a yes or no..

    So, the cheapest knife on the market averages like $30-$35. Meaning it ranges from horribly battle-scarred Forest DDPAT knives to like the Safari Meshes. Saying you have $40 you feel like throwing down Valves throats, you buy one. Now, after about a week you're like "I uh.. Think this things pretty ugly. I want a new one". So you put trading in your steam profile name, you ask a bunch of people to trade, you look. For most people, a month has easily passed and you haven't gotten a single trade. You start regretting buying the knife.. Eventually after who knows how long, you've maybe moved up $50 total in knives, but your knife is still ugly. Long story short, people say it takes them forever and ever to trade and it's easier to buy multiple smaller skins and trade up.

    Now, there's also the second opinion of people who say that they buy the cheapest knife. I've heard some people say that as soon (days time) they buy the knife, they see people with so many ugly knives that are instantly willing to trade off of just looks. They say they have people who are always looking and they just hold their knife out when people are dead just so they see it. Now, personally, I don't get this a lot but who knows because I don't have a knife. (Yet. Maybe?)

    All in all I just want a few serious opinions from people who aren't just gonna be actual imbeciles about it. Thanks! (:

    Don't spend your money on it, you will regret it. Get the attitude that skins are useless bullshit and focus on your gameplay instead.

    Depends whether you are looking for something playable or just for value.

    I have a butterfly knife night BS worth around $70 market. It has a very low float and is worth a fair bit more, so i've got guaranteed profit and it looks pretty sick ingame.

    1. Buy keys
    2. Buy knives for 80% price using keys
    3. Sell knives on community market and make a 7% profit due to Steam tax.
    4. Repeat
