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."
