If your Team is looking through Players Feedback first, it is probably too late already. For sure you know there are literally millions of Posts regarding the current unrewarding Loot Situation. You increased the Drop Rates two times Server-Side already which makes it look like you can do it instantly at any time. People are upset since Saturday. Soon another Loot Shooter will show up and many will switch just because you, for what ever reason, keep locking good Items behind insane unfair RNG. I played Path of Exile for almost 3000 Hours, so i believe i can handle the frustration of not getting Rewarded for a long time, but you take it with Anthem to a whole new Level. First i have to do an extremely exhausting Grind to get an Item drop and then i have to be ultra Lucky getting those good rolled Inscriptions, which currently seems to be just impossible. If you not drastically increase Drop Rates soon, then for God's sake put a minimum Inscription Roll tied to the Rarity Level. I'm not sure if you are a Gamer by yourself, but can you maybe imagine how it feels if you finally get a Drop after 100 Hours just to see that it is only worth a single MW Ember after dismantle? It is utterly Frustrating! We play Games for Fun, not because we wanna become depressive. Many of us got that in Real Life already, we surely don't need that in Anthem as well. If you still believe People will leave your Game once Geared, let me tell you, it is the other Way round. I and many others will leave cause it feels like time wasting. I wanna try Build diversity on all Javelins and by the Time i'm done with that you already pushed alot of new Content. No one is going to leave if you give us what we are asking for. Stop the unnecessary stall and change the Rates now. Do it incremental over the next months, like Chad said and Anthem will be dead by that time for many People. This is no Hate Post at all, i Love Anthem and i wanna see it succeed long term. Do change Loot right now and make the Game a true Loot Shooter finally!

Coin is issued next day normally.

I don't work for EA, but I adore BioWare's Mass Effect, Dragon Age & Anthem.
I can be found here on EA Answers HQ and on BSN forums:

You forgot about the Storm components Amulet of Winter and Mark of Ruin in which they are bugged and do not show values. Also you forgot about the Storm ability Ten Thousand Suns in which the primary fire that we could rapid fire before now it feels sloggish and wonky meaning it can no longer be spammed if you want to release quick fireballs without charging the abillity for the big one.

Probably not the right place to put this but I can no longer close the game.  When I go to exit all I get is a black screen and I then have to force close the game.

What about addressing the issue of players not being able to play because we can’t select our first javelin? The double load screen in the forge?

Thanks for the info Jesse!

Any update on the colossus’ masterwork components Ablative Shielding (this was listed as fixed in 1.03 but it still has the old values for armor and shield) and Reinforced Hull (says 5% mag increase instead of 35% like its epic  version Colossal Stock Component)?

Please realize that there is a blackout/boycott going on and a mass exodus of players in general. Anthem is in serious jeopardy of losing a lot of players permanently.

Even if it was a mistake. the loot drop rates have effectively been stealth nerfed. Being that we were promised no intentional stealth nerfs and it's not being fixed yo can understand why people are so upset.

I'm hoping this is actually connected to the stealth ember nerf and tomorrow's hotfix fixes them both(fingers crossed)

The trouble is loot drop rates are significantly lower than before the patch. We're talking less 1% for legendries and 1-5% for mw. These are casino/slot machine odds. This is simply not rewarding to play.

Although many complaints are poorly expressed and very emotional they are mostly correct. Loot showers is hyperbole. What people want to have feel like they can actually get a drop at all.

RyanCentral's video really sums it up and hits the nail on the head respectfully.

Amulet of Winter was switched with Mark of Ruin Icons and I lost my legendary Amulet of winter which was replaced with a legendary mark of Ruin and Both marks have no percentage values on them.
