If it doesn't matter, then why did half my items get deleted? The ones I got through the achievement system they implemented. Again, it's purely cosmetic so why does it matter? Nobody is gaining an unfair advantage by running the simple exe that combats a flawed and non-rewarding random drop system. Also, the only thing they are protecting is how player unfriendly the current drop system. This post perfectly sums up on how this is the entirely wrong approach.http://www.facepunch.com/showpost.php?p=17093219&postcount=1
Also, you have to be really ignorant to think that only 4.5% of people idled. According to the Steam stats, the average playerbase per day is around 27-30k players. On a daily average, there were around 9-11k players logged into the sourceop fake server. So on average, around 33% or a third of the community is effected.This comment was edited on Sep 2, 2009, 23:23.
