Summer 2020 cases still dropping or no?

Recommended Posts

I see that they became a retired case when october 1st hit because of scream fortress so they shouldn't be dropping anymore, but when I look at the stats page it increased by like 30,000 cases post october 1st?

 

Why is that?

Backpack.tf updates the number of items 'in existence' for their stats page when a new item is discovered in a user's inventory when they update their backpack on Backpack.tf. It can be misleading to use that since essentially the statistic measures how many summer 2020 cases are in the hands of Backpack.tf users.

 

Since the case is now retired, that explains why more are going to traders / Backpack.tf users.

Makes sense, thanks for the answer.

I always figured it was like csgo where all the cases still drop they are just a rare drop. I say this because if you look at the backpack stats for even super old cases(4+ years) they were still going up in existance. Cant say for sure but thats always been my assumption for it. The only cases that seem to have the number in existance go down didnt drop many to begin and must have been rare from the start or have unbox rate that outdoes the rare drop rate. Though after checking the numbers it seems all cases are going down now since around april 2020

 

You notice the case numbers were all going up until around april 2020

Slowly but they were going up until very recently meaning something changed.

 

These are still going up

They dropped for me about a week ago.

 

Haven't had a drop of Summer crates since then.
