Shortly after I started playing TF2, my backpack filled up with items, many of which were "Mann Co. Stockpile crates". Because I didn't want to buy a premium account straight away, I deleted my crates in favour of other items. However, since I eventually decided I needed a premium account, I bought a stockpile crate key. I then realised I had deleted all of my crates. I decided to wait for a new one, since they seemed to drop all the time. However, I haven't found a single crate in my ~150 hours playtime after I bought my account. Now I just have a key floating around my inventory, attracting trades from people who want it. I therefore went to buy one from the community market where they are extremely cheap to buy. However, on hovering over them, they all contain either a bat or a hat, neither of which I want to waste £1.49 on. The thing I want most is a strange weapon, but I can't find a crate on the market that has the possibility of containing a strange. So, two questions:
- Do I still get Stockpile crate drops when I have a premium account? (I have found a couple of supply crates)
- Do they all contain either a bat or a hat?
