In the first part of February, the company opencsgo.com outlined if there are trends for skins in Counter Strike. Its popularity the website gained by producing CS:GO skins cases. In just a couple years this website has become the most popular among players. PR department was curious about what skins are the most popular and how often top skins are changed. Are there trends among players or the most popular skin is just the most expensive one? Meanwhile, designers debut their collections at the fashion shows, the hardcore players create their own trends.
This review was made by opencsgo.com employees on the basis of website statistics. As it became popular among players in a short time, there was enough data for conducting research. As a result, we can say the following:
1. The most active website users are boys aged 20-25 from Europe and USA. Actually, the creator is native of USA, that is why the most active players are from there. Despite the stereotype that the majority of players are aged 20 or less, the statistics deny this fact. The fight for the top skins goes among players who play for a long time.
2. Skin matters – mostly, the big-sized rifles are withdrawn. It’s hard to answer, why so. Most likely, it’s the individual preferences.
3. In January 2017, the most popular skins are in orange and red colours. Generally, the color really matters when players make their choice. But individual tastes aren’t the only factor affecting the colour preferences, also the seasons affect it. When it’s cold, the most popular are warm colours, when it’s warm – the other trends appear. In CS:GO everything is like in a real life.
4. As a dessert, the skins in military colours and small sizes were not popular. And it’s hard to explain why it is so. It proves once again that there are trends for skins. When you bored with your equipment, you just change it into something absolutely new. The conclusion is that if you have a small gun, you have to change it.
What trend is in general? Players change the skins very often, at least 1-2 times per week. The game is important, but your style in it is equally important. This is your individuality. If you respect yourself as a player, you shouldn’t have outdated skin. They are updated constantly.
Everything is simple – if you have a cool skin, you are cool. As you know, to buy what you really need is either simply expensive or very expensive. There is no other way. It’s more profitable to get a new skin on case opening websites, such as opencsgo.com. Especially, if a skin is appearing to be more costly than a case.
