If you got a purple item everytime or even half the time it would unbalance the system. The whole point of purple is that they are VERY RARE. You have to do a good bit of grinding to find one (either getting crafting supplies, emblems from dalies, etc) otherwise everyone would have a full compliment of them and the exchange would be flooded with them driving their value way down.

A roughly 10% drop rate is perfectly understandable and makes since. Mean time i turn in any greens for the credits and put the blues in fleet for newer players to use. This is why u have an option ( do u want a gauranteed emblem or take an item you will most likely sell for the chance of a purple.)
