Katowice 2014 LDLC (Holo) - Sticker Crafts
As we already know by this point, the last two years have seen many of four-time crafts with the Katowice 2014 LDLC (Holo) sticker. We will get to those in a second, but let's first take a look at some overall stats for the sticker. There are currently 5,545 skins with at least one applied to them. The total amount of four-time crafts is currently 76.
Shortly, we will see how this sticker perfectly matches with pink and blue colored skins, as well as some you might have not thought of so far. There have been many new crafts lately, but we can’t forget about old skins such as the Galil AR Sugar Rush either, which some consider the best Katowice 2014 Galil in the game. Some other OG craft that we shouldn’t leave behind as well are the AK Point Disarray, the AK Neon Revolution, and the Famas Pulse.
One of the many amazing matches for this sticker are the Neo-Noir skins. We currently have four M4A4 Neo-Noir skins with four Katowice 2014 LDLC (Holo) stickers applied to them and on the other hand one USP-S Neo-Noir but zero on the AWP.
It would be really nice to see the full set in one inventory, but who knows if we will ever come to that point? For now, let's keep the focus on some crafts that did happen lately. One of those is on a FN 0.008 M4A4 In Living Color back in May of 2021. The cost of the craft was around USD 60,000.
One of the most beloved crafts with the LDLC (Holo) is the AK Neon Rider with four stickers applied to it. This one-out-of-four craft is considered as the best AK craft by some. The most recent of those four happened in April of 2021 on a FN 0.0001 AK Neon Rider. One of the crafts, with a slightly higher float, is owned by @Jellewastaken. He is also the owner of an one-out-of-two M4A1-S Decimators.
His ST one is a FN 0.0001 float value while the other one, that is owned by @2kav, is non-ST with a float value of 0.000004. Now, what would be his collection without a matching AWP? That's why he picked up an AWP Gungnir that exists three times. Two of those were crafted in 2021 with eight stickers combining for a total value of USD 71,600.
The most recent Katowice 2014 LDLC (Holo) craft that we got was on the newest AK skin. Some of you might already know what we're talking about, it's a FN 0.002 Nightwish and was crafted in May of 2022. The estimated costs of this craft are around USD 80,000. Another example that showcases how drastically the price of the sticker rose in such a short period. Furthermore, @hobshytv is the proud owner of an one-out-of-two M4A1-S Icarus Fell craft. It’s a really nice one as the stickers pop out well due to the pattern on which they were applied.
My favorite four-time Katowice 2014 LDLC (Holo) craft is the Galil AR Sugar Rush. Such a perfect match that just stands out amongst the other stunning LDLC sticker crafts. For my top-3 I would add the AK Neon Rider and the AWP Silk Tiger to the list of my favorite crafts for that specific sticker.
Crafts with the Katowice 2014 LDLC (Holo) stickers haven’t been that common lately, but we hope that the upcoming year and possibly new skins might change that. If you had the opportunity to craft something with this sticker, what would it be? Be sure to let us know on Twitter.
