I do remember players grinding for the Nth time for the last piece of gear while sometimes newcomers seemed to pick up gear left and right.

I do not like the costs of the rep. system or abandoning the social zone for a personal rep. tab. However the system is much fairer now. The drops were exciting but I saw too many skilled people go without a well-earned reward for a long time.
