My prediction: This will be the best case ever released
If you didnt know, Valve are offering $1 million (same as a regular major prize pool) distributed between the best skin submissions that make it into the game. hltv.org/news/32086/valve-launches-1-mil..
If you make your way over to the workshop you can see some submissions so far. And they are awesome!
Its just stacked with insane skins in every category.
We know that the red skins (covert) for this case will be the AK-47 and the MP9. (See full list here: counter-strike.net/terms
This is good because first of all AK-47 is arguably the most iconic weapon, and second of all because MP9 is one of the most used SMGs on CT side and it also doesnt have many good skins, its one of the weapons with the worst skins relative to how much use its getting. Its important, because lets say the red (covert) skins for the case were M4A1-S and Revolver, then the potential for this case to be the GOAT of all cases would be limited, the M4A1-S has a lot of great skins already + M4A4 is getting more use, and the revolver is almost never used. AK-47 and MP9 being the red ones is fantastic.
Theres been good submissions in the workshop in the past that didnt make it into the game, but this will be the most stacked field of submissions ever, and Valve are dishing out $1m for the best skins, they arent doing that with intention of delivering a mediocre product, they are doing that because they want this case to be insane.
The last few cases havent been that great aside from a few good skins. I think N&M case will be stacked in every field. Snakebite had Slate and The Traitor. Broken Fang had M4A1-s printstream, thats about it, but the 3 operations to go with Broken Fang were pretty good.
As for the knife/glove rare released with the case we dont know what it'll be, it might be mediocre in this department, but expectations for the playskins are very high with this one. Im confident this will be the best case ever released. I think it will be knives this time, as we just had back to back gloves cases. Gamma finishes for more knives would be absolutely insane if that happened (eg. Gamma Doppler p1-4, Emerald, Autotronic, Black Laminate, Lore, Bright Water, Freehand, for butterfly knives and other knives that dont have gamma finishes)
TL;DR: Dreams and nightmares will be the best case ever released. No doubt.
