1st, dont buy a knife from marketI'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! (:
2nd, buy keys instead much easier
3rd, buy quick sell knifes or quick sell skins
