Topic: Sticker Spotlight – Katowice 2015 PENTA Sports (Holo) Supply, Price, Crafts & Trend
Over the years, many tournaments have taken place in the game of Counter-Strike. One that we would love to shed some light on today is the Katowice 2015 Major tournament. We will provide a backstory about all the teams that took part in it. The first team to receive a sticker spotlight will be PENTA Sports. We will dive into their tournament participation, sticker statistics, including supply, price trends, and four/five-time crafts.
Katowice 2015 PENTA Sports – General Team Information
PENTA Sports was the only German organization that managed to qualify for the Katowice 2015 Counter-Strike tournament by finishing in the top eight at the DreamHack 2014 Major. Compared to DreamHack 2014, there were some roster changes and their team for the Katowice 2015 Major consisted of the following five players: Tobias "Troubley" Tabbert, Kevin "kRYSTAL" Amend, Johannes "nex" Maget, Denis "denis" Howell, and Timo "Spiidi" Richter, with Alexander "alexRr" Frisch as their coach.
Their Group B wasn't the easiest task. However, like any other team, high hopes and good vibes were presented throughout the entire tournament for the PENTA Sports five-stack. The opponents they faced in Katowice were LGB eSports, Titan, and Team EnVyUs. The opening match was against LGB eSports. A rough start for the Germans and a couple of early rounds that didn't go their way resulted in a 16-3 loss on Dust 2. However, this didn't dampen their spirits, and they kept their heads up for an elimination match against Titan. This was their last chance to stay in the tournament, leaving no room for mistakes. The game was fully under their control, and after 20 rounds on Cache, they won with a scoreline of 16-4. The final hurdle before reaching the playoffs was once again LGB eSports, again on Dust 2. Armed with knowledge from their previous game and the mistakes they had made, PENTA Sports bounced back. In a close match that ended with a 16-12 victory, they secured second place in the group stage.
The toughest opponent was yet to come. The BO3 series showed that Fnatic was a force to be reckoned with. Even though PENTA Sports put up a tough fight, it wasn't enough to advance to the semifinals. Losing the series 2-0 placed them 5th to 8th overall in the tournament, earning them USD 10,000 in prize pool money and a direct qualification to the ESL One Cologne 2015.
Katowice 2015 PENTA Sports (Holo) - Sticker Supply
The supply of Counter-Strike stickers is a broad topic that can be extensively discussed. It's important to note that achieving a 100 percent accurate count of stickers existing in the game is not possible. This includes the total number of stickers that have not yet been applied. However, we can observe how many of them are available for sale on various marketplaces via our EsportFire Database. For example, there are 73 listed on Buff163 and 11 on the Steam Community Market. Additionally, it's worth considering that some of these stickers are certainly within private inventories and storage units.
Katowice 2015 PENTA Sports (Holo) - Price Trend/Development
In the past six months, the Katowice 2015 PENTA Sports (Holo) has experienced an upward price trend, increasing from an average of USD 40 to its current value of USD 50. The most affordable sticker can be found on Buff163 for USD 50. An analysis of the price trend history indicates that previous sales ranged between USD 40 to USD 55. This represents a fairly significant price difference for a sticker of this kind. With this information, it's reasonable to assume that a new four-time craft of the sticker would cost between USD 160 and USD 220. In the meantime, let's examine the crafts that already exist and have been created since the introduction of the sticker in the game.
Katowice 2015 PENTA Sports (Holo) - Sticker Crafts
If you were to look into the @csgofloat database right now, you would find a total of 7,795 skins that have one or more Katowice 2015 PENTA Sports stickers applied to them. Six percent of those skins are four or five-time crafts, totaling to 431. We've selected a few that blend nicely with the skins and others that make the sticker stand out. Let us know which one you prefer the most. We'll start with a one-out-of-three craft on the MAC-10 Silver. Currently, @Oppysez holds one in their inventory. Moving on to the Galil AR Winter Forest, decorated with four Katowice 2015 PENTA Sports stickers by @sh9ce. Another skin that complements the colors is the USP-S Whiteout. Presently, only two of these crafts exist. @0nionMuncher managed to acquire one of the two. Among the primary weapons, we'd like to showcase the AK-47 Neon Rider. This skin provides a bit more space for the stickers to stand out compared to some other white or grey-colored skins we mentioned earlier. One lucky owner of this AK-47, which was crafted three times, is @Sgt_Ente.
Katowice 2015 PENTA Sports (Holo) - Sticker Crafts
If you're a fan of more unique crafts, such as one-out-of-ones, you might appreciate the following M4A4. Currently held by @BenxIstSam2_0, the M4A4 Global Offensive features four Katowice 2015 PENTA Sports stickers. One of the initial crafts created when the AK-47 Baroque Purple was introduced in the game was precisely with this sticker. Consequently, there are currently eight of them in existence. Among these, @2kavCS possesses one. Another one-out-of-one craft that we'd like to showcase is the MAC-10 Ensnared, crafted by @erupT_cs in June 2022. Last but not least is the Glock-18 High Beam, owned by @0xNptZ. As evident, there are numerous distinct unique skins featuring the Katowice 2015 PENTA Sports sticker, which is always exciting to observe. Which one is your favorite?
The Galil AR from @sh9ce stands out as one of my favorite crafts featuring the Katowice 2015 PENTA Sports sticker, perhaps even the best one. While there are a few more I like, none quite match up to the appeal of that Galil. Namely, the AK-47 Baroque Purple from @2kavCS, the P250 Facets from Steam user “revenge”, and the AK-47 Vulcan, which exists twice in Factory New condition. One of these is currently on one of @Skinport's bot accounts.
