About

Which are the best cases in cs go? In Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, weapon crates are one of the available container types. A container is all that, when opened, provides the opening player with one of the items from his list of available items. The result is random, but the chances are lower, the higher the rarity of the item. A case is a chest, upon opening of which with a certain probability a skin for a weapon or a unique type of weapon falls out. If you are lucky, you will get a cool weapon skin and it will be interesting to look or change the look of your standard weapon. All these pieces of bonuses in the game do not give any, this is a purely visual change in your weapon and that’s all. So opening the case of cs go gives no guarantees of victories. All cs go cases contain a specific collection of skins or weapons. To open a case you need a key from the same collection as the case. For example, if you have a spectrum case case, then you need the spectrum case key to open it.

Therefore, good design is many things to Mia Lagerman: “It’s when everything comes together. It is best when you explain it in a few words, when you understand it without endless long explanations, pictures and texts.”

“Aesthetics is very personal and something that grows all the time. You develop your eye through your whole life. I think it is boring when everything suddenly resembles each other, when it becomes nice, proper and predictable. I like it to be a little improper, a little wrong, dirty or lopsided so that it can interest the eye.”
