    Cool May This Be A Lesson To You All...

    I have a story to tell. Gather 'round, children, and hear my tale...

    So, I had just sold my 3 Arlor sets, and had some cash in my pocket.
    Through sheer will of boredom, I bought a BUNCH of Elite Golden Warchests.
    On my 6th one, I got a Mythic piece of armor, worth 5m.
    Enraged with happiness, i danced around my house for a few minutes.
    I then preceded to sell it.
    I got to 6.5m, roughly.

    BUT...

    I got greedy. I bought EVERY ELITE GOLDEN WARCHEST ON THE CS.
    After opening every single one, and spending 6.5m in 10 minutes it was all gone.
    The dust had settled, and the Golden Chests of Goodies were empty.
    With no goodies to be had...

    The moral of this story, is don't get greedy. Don't gamble, don't push your luck, and DON'T mess with Elite Golden Warchests.

    I remember an episode from the Family Guy where Brian tells Stewie:

    "You notice that slot machine right beside the hotel's entrance? I heard it has a high chance of giving out the jackpot to lure people to gamble more in the big casinos in Vegas"

    Temptation at its finest indeed, I hope you learn from this experience.

    (I'm a hypocrite for saying that ^)

    I did. Gold travels faster than light.

    Oh. In my case it was locked crates :| I opened them too much, got a mythic bow, then started opening 50 more.

    Nothing :|

    Well, this is a only a bit late of a reply, but I'm down to just 300g now. Why? Expansions and what not. Anyway, I recommend just not touching ANY pve chests at all. Ever.
