Praise SD for Jackal's Eve. I can finally get my hands on some orange skins I've wanted for so long. My wallet's gonna be hurting after this one because I'm incapable of sayin' no to orange. Anyway, let's get this thing rolling:

Perfection. That contrast of blaze orange, grey, white, black, and browns. Easily my favorite theme of colors. Not the best loadout for her, but still usable.

Some in-game shots with settings cranked up:

Now let's see yours!

    Too bad it takes about 20-27 hours to obtain one skin, minimum. RIP

    Hey, we should be optimistic. It's somewhat better, right? 10 bucks worth of Shrieks guarantees one special edition + we're still able to get them from regular case drops and can very slowly earn them while playing + a trinket that boosts how much you earn. Previously the best 'bang for your buck' options with these events always seemed to be buyin' the 20 dollar elite case bundles with one special guaranteed and a slim chance at getting another in the remaining 5. Yeah, it's still awful, but at least this one is a tad bit better. Pretty sure they ran the Proxy eye thing (already forgot the name of that event) the same way. Progress?... Hooray for optimism. :|

    Dude, I just played for an hour+ to get ~450 shrieks, WITH TRINKET. So more like thirty hours minimum.

    Meaning for people who don't nolife Dirty Bomb... the trinket is pretty much worthless cause if you can barely put in the maybe fifty hours to get a case without the trinket, you certainly aren't going to be putting in the time to get two cases with the trinket. AND YOU STILL DON'T GET TO PICK THE LOADOUT. To think after the big ol' Splash Damage office party for cool Internet kids, they had us all thinking, "wow, Splash Damage is really improving." Lel, what a joke. This is essentially, "@$!# you, you're adopted, too bad, so sad."

    So... I guess this means this is a standard, AIDs-tier Splash Damage event. Don't be me; give Splash Damage the finger and DO NOT PURCHASE THE TRINKET.

    Thanks Splash Damage. Eat a dick.

    If these skins weren't practically exactly what I've been wanting for as long as I've played the game, I'd be refusing to spend a dime as well. Don't like the RNG and this event is pretty short, unfortunately. But this one's for me, not them. I really want those freakin' orange schemes on a few mercs. Sorry, guys, I'm letting y'all down on this one. Succumbing to the money grabs. o:)

    Well the base rate for the Shreks is 5/minute, so without the Trinket it would take exactly 40 hours of in-game time, and 26.67 hours with the Trinket.

    Game One - 7 Minutes

    Game Two - 10 Minutes

    My sincerest apologies in advance. I know I support their greed by buying the Trinket, but I assure you that I bought it prior to knowing the disgusting pricing.

    Me too, this is actually my first trinket I wanted to grind on only. Then I realized it's a halloween's TRICK!

    I was waiting for this thread to appear before posting my rant :blush:

    I have to say that im kinda disapointed by those skins. This is still a great work but they are basically simple recolor of actual model. I would have loved to see Stoker with a flaming pumpkin for the head, or Sparks dressed like a witch, this kind of stuff, without getting too far from the original model so they still can be recognizable for everyone (like the Obsidian skins).

    But, there is an Halloween each year so all hope is not lost :D And im sure they are too busy for now to do this, but it will be great to have season skin with the same level of deatils than with Obsidian ones.

    Actually this event is just as bad, if not worse than the others. They do this double currency thing as a way to entice people to use real money. It basically hides how bad it actually is. The conversion rate is 13:1 for Credits:Shrieks. That's insane. The only upside to it is that they added a way to get a guaranteed card without spending money, but made it too expensive. They keep using the same terrible format, but make it slightly different every time. It still leaves us with a bad event in the end. I suppose the other upside is that you can purchase cases using either Shrieks or Credits. So @$!# your optimism Winter, let me complain!!!! :D

    Honestly though, there's been so many ideas thrown out there on how to improve these events, I'm surprised they haven't used any of them. I only complain about these things, and things like the Javelin or Guardian cases because I WANT to support the devs. I mean, I still support them with purchases when I feel it's worth it, but they could be getting more of my money, and others if they considered our thoughts a bit more. I think it all leads back to RNG though. When you have RNG on top of RNG and steep prices, it's no fun for anyone, even if you pay real money to get cards.

    I forgot I have the damn trinket already lol. So yeah, without it the Shriek earn rate is much lower and I think the average person won't even be able to obtain a guaranteed case by the end of the event. I bought the trinket because it looks pretty cool and has a nice sound. These events are so painful for me because I want to support the devs, but I can't do it as much as I'd like because of their pricing/paid setup. So sad. :'(

    You bet! @CrankyPants was also nice enough to message me directly with the links. And all the pics are exactly to my preferred specifications. :D

    I think you're my new best friend @CrankyPants ;)

    First day hunting for these and I'm already down to only 7 missing:

    • Aimee
    • Aura
    • Fragger
    • Guardian
    • Kira
    • Skyhammer
    • Turtle

    On a side note, I'm also still looking for pics of these Ranked Season 4 skins:

    • Aura
    • Sparks
    • Turtle
    • Vassili
  • I think Stoker, Nader, Redeye, Fragger, and Fletcher look great with these. I'm hoping to get a few more. Got a garbage Sawbones and Rhino today...

    Have an idea for a new merc? Then head on over to my Mercenary Suggestion Form and go post it!
  • Game credits are by far the way to go for this. 800k gets you like 5 pumpkin cards. My guess is they are trying to drain some of the credits from the people who have millions, since there isn't much to spend credits on.

    Too bad these skins look so ehrmm.. pumpkiny? Rhino particularly cracks me up.
