I agree partially. IMO all seasonal items that provide important buffing stats should be yesdrop.
Some social stuff should stay nodrop and some should even be a bit on the rare side.
It’s just stupid that if you roll a new char after halloween or after june you have to wait for more than 6 months to be able to start gearing that character up.
However there still should be some rare and cool social stuff for bragging rights for those who are ready and willing to grind a bit more during the events. Key word here being “SOCIAL.”
Things that everyone needs to equip endgame stuff should never be limited to dropping only few days per year if they are nodrop. Either lose the nodrop flag or make that stuff available all year.
Having buffing items that are rare and require work to get is perfectly ok. However being completely unable to acquire those items for 6+ months is not ok.
Changing things from yesdrop to nodrop AFTER an event without any warning in advance is another huge middlefinger shoved directly to the players face and should never happen. Even if the original yesdrop status was a mistake or bug, changing it to nodrop without a warning should never happen.
Often people collect seasonal yesdrop stuff on one character and then distribute to alts later. You change something from yesdrop to nodrop without warning and you seriously piss off these players. And at this point FC can’t afford ■■■■■■■ off one single player if they want to keep the lights on.
