Unboxed Unusual Without New Effect

Recommended Posts

Pineapple Pizza

Got the Scream Fortress Update, hopped in a server, started unboxing multi-class crates, and pulled a Powdered Practitioner with Circling TF Logo. Any idea if those crates are even supposed to drop new effects? I assumed they would, since the patch notes say "all crates."

Only CASES will drop the effects, not crates, which multi-class crates are crates and not cases. At least that's how I interpret it.

This line from the TF2 Wiki on Mann Co. Supply Crates seems to clinch it: 

During Scream Fortress X, all unusuals that were unboxed from cases were guaranteed to have one of the brand new unusual effects that were introduced in the event. However, the offer did not apply to crates, which confused people who unboxed crates during the event and ended up with standard unusual effects. It is safe to say that future limited time offers of this kind will probably be exclusive to cases as well. 

 

This is somewhat confusing, because there are post-Gun Mettle Halloween effects on craft hats, like the Neutron Star Baseball Bill's, but apparently that got wiped in JI. 

Not to mention the fact that the unlocked crates are also post-Gun Mettle.

The halloween 2016 event was special, where also CRATES got the new effects. Not this year tho, only CASES are affected.

It's been cases for quite a few years by this point. I wouldn't've expected otherwise.

If you did, then it's in a private inventory; nothing shows up with Premium Search.

maybe it was a server plugin, but this was right after the event launched
