Team Fortress 2 Item Drop Changes

The Team Fortress 2 Blog details significant changes to the item drop system in Valve's teamplay shooter, indicating the changes are going live today. They outline the changes, which boil down to idlers finding few items after the changes are implemented, and everyone else will find items more frequently and with greater regularity. Looking forward, they say: "We're still thinking about how to allow you to influence your drops."

Thank you Valve for this change! I'm not a hardcore player by any means, but there are times when I have a chance to sit down and play for 2-3 hours and it's VERY rare to get ANYTHING to drop whatsoever. In 3 HOURS of actual gaming. That's just retarded. And I constantly see people with every damn thing in the game. So how many freaking hours are these guys playing per week? Hopefully this will give the more casual players a chance to at least get a hat drop or the metal to craft one...

Aside from the hats (which are almost impossible to get without idling--I play a lot and have only had two drop, ever), you can get all of the weapons pretty dang fast just with going for the achievements. I don't even mean cheating on an achievement server--just playing the game with the achievements in mind can net you the weapons pretty quickly.
