Gentle Mannes service medal.

#1 Posted by NekuSakuraba (7240 posts) -

Hey, I was wondering how much a gentle mannes service medal was worth? (number. 5833) is it worth a max head? Less? More? Thanks.

I'd say they're about even, as both have limited availability.

Buds, maybe two if you find the right buyer.
 
Definitely not a Max.

I'm pretty sure they are worth a max, they have around the same value right?

Number is everything, the lower the number the more it is worth. You can try to get a Max if you want, but I doubt you'll find a buyer.

5000 is pretty low. How many Max heads are out there?

Just over 3,000.

Are you kidding? Only 3000 people got the the game first week? You have got to be kidding me. Anything I should do to improve me chances of getting one?

Where can I get numbers on hat ownership?
 
Another factor you might want to consider, though, is that the people who have Maxes got it with a game they actually paid good money for. The Service Medal was free, you just had to be a lucky clicker. But then, the most important consideration is that there's a limited number of each of these going around and for that reason people are not likely to part with them easily. I know I wouldn't.

I find it extremely unfair that I didn't get a Max head because of me being a loyal fan and supporting telltale directly through their website. Also, you could just pay for the hat. Most people who found the service medal had to be lucky enough to find it. For example, a hat the is an extremely rare drop only available for a few hours that you had to be lucky enough to get vs a hat that was on sale for a week that anyone could buy.

@NekuSakuraba: Hey, I agree that it's unfair, but that's just hard luck. It's a marketing gimmick and I'm betting it worked for a couple of people. Still, if people are gonna be looking at statistics, what they're going to see is X many Medals available vs Y many Maxes. Personally, I wouldn't take the numbers too seriously and just trade what I like less for what I like more. I don't care enough about trading to do math.

What if I added stuff like a level 90 spy watch and vintage weapons and hats?

You might try to sweeten the deal like that. People who are obsessed with item rarity probably won't go for it either way, but really it all depends on the person you're trading with.
 
I wish I had a severed head for you.

Yes, you do.

Also, as far as the Medal goes, it's not worth as much as a Max head as far as raw economic value goes, but you might find someone that wants the medal more than the hat.

If you bought it directly from Telltale before April 26th, you could register it with their site and get the hats. I preordered Season 3 the second they announced it for sale, weeks before the Steam offer, and mine totally worked.

Max Heads are about $90 USD. :D
