I started back playing in October last year after several months break. One of the main reasons I decided to come back was for EM Events. Since I came back in October I have attended approximately 45 events on 9 different shards. My experience has been, well, disappointing to say the least. I am not sure who's bright idea it was to change item drops to Top Attackers. It seems that most all events I have gone to with drops have gone to pretty much the same people with very little variations. Sure, every now and then someone new gets a drop but it is usually because one of the normal 10 or 15 drop getters is absent that night. Now, don't get me wrong, I don't think everyone should get a drop at every event. However, I do think it would be better if the drops were 100% random to whoever has looting rights. That seems to be the only fair way to distribute items. Of the 45 or so events I have attended, I have gotten looting rights on about 75%+ of the bosses with the drops. Of that 75%+ of the time I have received a total of 1 item drop and it was at an event with 30 drops. While I know of a dozen people who were at almost all of the same events who have had multiple drops. The people that keep getting drops are the ones who have spent hundreds of millions in gold building suits and characters that guarantee them to be in the top attacker range. People with 4.5+ Greater dragons and 120 spell weaving, throwers with the best gear money can buy and create, etc. It was stated at some point that healers would get a chance at a drop, but I have yet to ever hear about anyone getting a drop from healing anything other than their GD. I would like to see a change in the way items are given out at events. I would like to see it become random to anyone who has looting rights. At least everyone has a chance to get a drop even if they cannot afford to spend 750 million gold building a leet suit. I know it used to be items on the corpse with instanced corpse but people complained because they could not find the corpses but isn't there a way to make it random AND pop into your pack? Or just stop giving out items all together and let people show up just for fun. Sure the crowds will be smaller but that just means that the top guys won't be there for their items. The people who attend will be there for the story, the fun, the fellowship, etc. Yes, I know some of you will flame me for this post, I expect that from some of you. I just had to say my peace about how I felt about all of this. EM Events were one of the reasons I came back I would hate for them to change to one of the reasons I would want to leave again.
