  • Updated the contents of the Gargoyle Case, the Fall 2013 Acorns Crate, the Love And War Cosmetics Bundle, the Mann Co. Strongbox, and the Mann Co. Stockpile Crate
Posted it elsewhere so:

The Hellmet was removed from the Gargoyle Case and the Bruiser's Bandanna appears to have been removed from the Love And War Cosmetics Bundle.

odd, anyone know why?

Well some people have figured out some of the details but it isn't exactly clear.

 

But here is a complete list of the items removed from crates/collections.

* The Hellmet was removed Gargoyle Case/Collection.

* The Pop-eyes were removed from the Fall 2013 Acorns Crate.

* The Bruiser's Bandanna was removed from the Love And War Cosmetics Bundle and the Mann Co. Stockpile Crate.

* The Stylish DeGroot was removed from the Mann Co. Strongbox.

* The Creature's Grin was removed from the Unlocked Creepy Pyro Crate (updates to this crate were not included in the patch notes).

 

What do all five items have in common? They were all made by the same person, maniacâ„¢. And given that Valve released new keys for the updated crate (except the unlocked pyro crate obviously) it is likely that maniacâ„¢ is no longer receiving profit for sales of those keys. This likely suggests some sort of change, if not a breakdown, of the working relationship between Valve and maniacâ„¢.

GG, as if Unusual HazMat Headcases weren't overpriced enough.

Tasty Salamanders confirmed to be a conspiracy theorist.

Makes you wonder if those items were also pulled from the craftable pool.

The guy recently posted this on his own profile comment section:

 

 

 

It's not currently clear to me why my items were removed from the store and crates. Haven't received any notification from Valve. Hope I'll figure out what the problem is soon, and solve it.

But here is a complete list of the items removed from crates/collections.

* The Hellmet was removed Gargoyle Case/Collection. Ugly

* The Pop-eyes were removed from the Fall 2013 Acorns Crate. Decent

* The Bruiser's Bandanna was removed from the Love And War Cosmetics Bundle and the Mann Co. Stockpile Crate. Overhyped but decent

* The Stylish DeGroot was removed from the Mann Co. Strongbox. Lovely

* The Creature's Grin was removed from the Unlocked Creepy Pyro Crate (updates to this crate were not included in the patch notes). This was the ugliest crap i have ever seen

Is this like sic back in the days of the Howl and CSGO? How his Orion, Curse, Retribution, Poison Dart and Desert Warfare were removed?
