No one complains about how many times you have to play Diablo 2 to get good gear....why complain about 5 hours?

ADD has gotten the best of a lot of you.

That's because you can get good gear in Diablo 2 in 5 hours and go look up what ADD actually is on wikipedia.

That's randomization for you. By the law of averages, you will have at least as much shit as you will good stuff, and then a bunch of so-so stuff (which the player also considers shit) in between. You say they should "take a look at it," but that would mean removing or neutering loot randomization, which is against the core values of the game and hybrid genre they have created (FPS/RPG). It's fine if you don't like it, but there's really not much they can do.

You can have randomization with better base properties, stop making excuses for them. They don't just throw everything into a number blender and pray, they have direct control over the item formulas and drop percentiles. This isn't people wanting something for nothing and it isn't just a drop randomization problem. There isn't a design law that says players can only enjoy good loot if they collect a lot of bullshit too, choices can be compelling instead of boring and obvious.
