Hours of Farming! Not Worth it! Low Drop Rates! I could think of more, but it would be insulting at that point. Anyway, with the upcoming update, i doubt this problem will continue, seeing as the things companined about most are now reduced (buffs, etc.)

Just wanted to point out that most of the people you're probably losing to on a frustratingly often basis have done those hours of farming, trudging through low drop rates, in order to get to the point in their character builds that they are now.
That said, unless you're willing to also, then there's little point in trying to get things changed from here.
