I don't think I like the new drop changes very much in the new patch. It's fine for being in a group with strangers, but if I'm playing with my friends it kind of pits us all against each other. Can anyone think of a new method of sharing loot to make it 100% fair for everyone?
I like the changes, personally. They extended the timer, so you have more time to grab loot that actually drops for you. If you miss it, it's officially up for grabs by anyone, so there's no more arguing over "ninja looting". It'll be nice to not hear quite as much whining anymore.
I think the new patch is great too for those same reasons. I am sick of kids bitching about ninja looting in a game that has free for all looting to begin with. there's no such thing as ninjaing in this game.
