Random is random
Quite sick of reading this ! Sorry Nordicus I don't have anything against you but people saying random is random are getting anoying ! You can't justify the game sucking for some people just because it's good for other. This is not a good way to develop a game.
If you want to play a game where loot is not random, you are of course more than welcome to go and grind valor points in WoW.
But random loot is such an integral part of Diablo that if it wasn't random it just wouldn't be Diablo anymore.
I love pepper on my steack, but if there is way too much of it, it's not good. Should the waiter say : "If you don't like pepper, eat something else ?". Not everything is black or white. It's not because I critcize the way loot is randomized now in D3 that I don't like random loot (I played D1 and D2 for years, I knew what king of game it was).
What a completely terrible analogy. Are you going to go to Vegas and bitch to the pit boss because you're losing at the Roulette tables but the jackass next to you won twice? Are you going to scream at the pit boss that he's a big dumb-dumb head for telling you "random is random" when he's completely correct?
Just because you're annoyed with a broad brush answer that is still more factual than most of the rants on this forum doesn't make it any less true. This is a game of chance - as someone else said, if you want less random rewards for your time investment, go play a game that lets you grind points and purchase your gear (man, that looks awfully familiar to the AH system, come to think of it).
Also, in before all the wankers bringing up the increase in drop chance with the coming patch - you'd better believe there are still going to be people crying about not having any luck in a random game, blaming it entirely on "poor design."
