Tickets come in three types:
- Prize Ticket: Frequently drops after matches, combine five of them for a rare or better event item (cannot get Precious-quality items)
- Gold Ticket: Rarely drops after matches, use one of them to get a Precious-quality event item
- Premium Ticket: Purchased from the in-game store for $2.49, will give you a random event item (including possibility of getting Precious-Quality items)
The Prize Tickets and Gold Tickets can replace the random drop you get after playing a match, however during Events the amount of drops is usually tripled (ie. one every 4 hours instead of 12 hours). Prize Tickets can also be sold and traded on the Steam Marketplace, even after the event ends.
Tickets are combined or redeemed from your Inventory by selecting them and picking "Use."
Cosmetic Gear from an Event can also be recycled to obtain a ticket for that Event.
