    So... Opening CSGO Cases Has Terrible ROI

    I guess not a big surprise to anybody, but some guy actually wrote a research paper for his Masters degree which collected a bunch of data from each case opening to compare the ROI's on each case. The sample sizes were about 2000+ cases each type. Perhaps not enough to give a perfectly accurate ROI, but I think it's pretty close.

    Long story short, average case opening will return you ~35% of the cost of case + key to open it. Best case to open is CSGO Weapon Case II, worst case is Gamma. More details here: R2Pleasent Gold | Why Opening CSGO Cases is a Terrible Investment

    As for Case opening sites, all I can say is lol. Those guys are probably giving out less than Steam by a wide margin.

    I always suspected the ROI for case openings would be low, based off of personal experiences, but the data collected through the study is shocking nonetheless. And to think that the case I opened the most (Chroma 2) had an ROI of only a measly 25%. I can tell you one thing, I'll NEVER again open a case.
