2 New PUBG Crates!

If you’re a collector of skins, then this week has been amazing. First, we had the release of the latest crate for CSGO and now PUBG has announced the addition of 2 new crates to the game.

Up first, is the FEVER crate which is inspired by the fashion of the 70’s and 80’s. The FEVER Crate can be purchased with Battle Points and can be unlocked with Early Bird keys.

Next, is the MILITA Crate which consists the Erangel Resistance Force Outfit and the Miramar Frontiersman Outfit. The Militia Crate will be randomly dropped among the four existing crates and does not require a key to open. And just like the Gamescom Invitational Crate, you can snag a whole set along with a single item when opening the FEVER Crate.

Players will be given Keys and Battle Points on the test server to check out the new skins before they launch on February 22nd.

So be sure to pick up these new crates on the 22nd and let us know which crate you are excited about by dropping a comment below!

PUBG Update Number 6

Today the developers at PUBG Corp have released an update addressing players concerns as well as a new patch to the test servers.

Since the launch of the game players have faced two major issues, the first being desync and the second being cheaters who have been flooding into the game. Desync has been an issue in the game since the launch of early access. While PUBG Corp has made some progress on this issue, today they have announced that players with lower pings will be prioritized during matchmaking. The studio also stated that they are working on implementing new ways to stop cheating; however, due to various reasons the patch for cheating has been delayed.

The focus of the patch this week is on game optimization and fixing significant bugs. The studio also announced that they will be releasing a roadmap in March. The roadmap will outline new content coming to the game, as well as improvements and modifications to create more realistic game play.

Check out the full breakdown of the patch notes here and let us know what you think about the latest update and what changes you would like to see to PUBG in the comments below.

OPSkins to Add Etherbots: The Blockchain-Based Robot Wars Game

OPSkins is pleased to announce the upcoming addition of Etherbots to our marketplace! Etherbots is a blockchain-based online game that allows users to collect and build virtual robots, and then duel them with other players across the globe. Etherbots are comprised of four different parts, each of which are unique and scarce, so every robot is customized to the user. OPSkins has partnered with Etherbots to give our customers the ability buy and sell parts on the marketplace. We expect Etherbots to be integrated with OPSkins towards the end of March.

As blockchain technology continues its push into the mainstream, blockchain-based games have been gaining more and more traction with the first viral game at one point hogging the Ethereum blockchain, taking up nearly 15% of all transactions on the ETH network

OPSkins will become the go-to marketplace to trade these ERC-721 tokens, also known as Crypto Collectibles, as Etherbots is the second such token to be added to OPSkins (the first was CryptoKitties).

Watch Comedy Central show the $61k Souvenir Dragon Lore that sold on OPSkins.com

Last week, a Souvenir Dragon Lore sold on OPSkins.com for $61,052.63 (item listing here). This week, Comedy Central’s Adult Swim News segment featured the item and, uh, how to explain the sale to your Grandpa. Watch it here:

Why was this item sold for around the price of a 2018 BMW M3?

The Dragon Lore is already one of highest priced items in the CS:GO skins market. This particular skin was in “factory new” condition, and also featured the autograph of Tyler “Skadoodle” Latham of Cloud9 who took home MVP of the ELEAGUE Boston Major 2018. Throw in the fact that this skin is only available through “Souvenir” crates that are dropped to fans spectating the majors. Rarity + prestige + collectibility = $61k digital gun which has gone down in skins trading history as the Most Expensive Dragon Lore Ever Sold.

As soon as the item sold on OPSkins Marketplace, news of the item began to spread like wildfire and was featured on Dot Esports, PC Gamer, Polygon and eventually Comedy Central’s Adult Swim News.

Highest Selling Items From New PUBG Crates

With the launch of the new update earlier this week PUBG received its first set of new crates since the game left early access and moved into release.  Since dropping onto live servers they have quickly become some of the most wanted items on the marketplace.

While these items are still new to the market two of the items from the DESPERADO CRATE are currently selling for over $1,000 each, the CLOTH MASK (LEOPARD) and the LEATHER HOODIE (WHITE).

Due to the limited availability of these items they are currently the highest selling skins in the game, however, as more people unlock them it will be interesting to see what it does to the price on the market.

Along with the DESPERADO CRATE, the BIKER CRATE was also released.  The top-ranking skins within this crate are currently the Sleeveless Biker Jacket (Black) and the CLOTH MASK (CHECKERED).

Overall the crates have been a nice addition to the game and have been well received by the community. Out of all the new skins which one is your favorite and what items would you like to see added in the future?
