@zack, you seem awful worked up about this. It's not really taking away your choice, it's taking away your choice to be an anonymous jerk. Three months in and you haven't won a weapon? Gee, I wonder why... It couldn't possibly be because 98.2% of the folks who CAN need on the weapon you want do so. Not because they actually need it, but because they want to use it as collateral to trade for the tier piece that some other guy won two bosses ago.That is the choice it's taking away. No longer will you lose Soul Drinker to the DK who's already dual wielding them because he rolled need so he could give them to his buddy who wants one.Heck, one time I had a guy who was eagerly trying to trade out a piece of loot. I asked if he didn't get any takers if I could have it. He asked me what I had to trade and I told him "nothing". So he kept it and vendored it because the 10g he got vendoring was his best option for a piece of loot he couldn't use as an upgrade.Those are the types of things that this system combats. You want to rant? Go rant at the sea of faceless players out there who couldn't play nice in LFR. It caused a lot of grief and this is Blizzards answer to that. I think they've done a pretty good job myself.
