Had a decent day today with WAR! Continued to screw around on the KotBS, and got in both a Warblade and a Sigmars run on my Rune Priest........unfortunately the loot system is terrible.
Out of both runs, full clears mind you, not a single item dropped that could be used by any group member. Was that not to be addressed in an earlier patch??
I remember, way back when, when it was said loot would drop that was only usable by those in the party. Alas, I guess that was not to be.....yet. Hopefully this is something that changes, and changes soon. Quite honestly, while tonight was fun with some friends, it was pretty disappointing. It's things like that, that really wear on a player. With contribution borked in keep takes and the lackluster loot that falls on any given night, will it be any wonder when people just ultimately stop logging on? I certainly hope that doesn't happen, but I've already noticed people re rolling several alts, switching realms, and quitting altogether. Not because the game is bad, but because the game is dare I say, getting stale?
I think the majority of people were really looking towards the ORvR aspect of this game, since it was even just a concept. So far however, that has yet to come to fruition. While I do feel as if there is plenty of opportunity for guilds to run "gank groups", it doesn't seem like many are.
Right now it is just to easy for the zerg to keep up. To easy to see where the action is. To easy to throw numbers around. Maps aren't large enough, there needs to be a speed to seperate groups (ie:. Speed 5/6), and there needs to be better rewards for ORvR rather than just that of Influence.
As a casual player to this game, it is hard enough to find a group to run things with. And while running with the zerg can be fun at times, it takes all the skill out of the game.
Here's to hoping these things are addressed soon, as I do believe they will be.
