Valve admits TF2 drop system didn’t work as well as planned

Valve’s Robin Walker has chatted with fan site CommunityFortress regarding the item drop system, which apparently, didn’t pan out the way it planned.

“I think we’ve learned that the random drop system is only good for some types of things, like the rare cosmetic hats,” he said. “For competitive players, it’s obviously a bad way to deliver items.”

Valve is currently considering new ways to drop items, such as achievements, but claims it may also “move to a mode where we just give them to you.”

    Well, as a long time Valve game buyer and TF2 player, I’ll admit that the new system pissed me off so much that I stopped playing the game altogether.
