- people who actually play the game will be rewarded (instead of just playing the AH)
- people who never get that ridiculous drop in-game will still be able make upgrades
- people who play more will end up with better gear than people who play less
- people who do play the AH or get lucky drops will still have better gear than those who do not
- RNG is no longer the only way to get an upgrade
Instead of being Pay to Win, the game now becomes Play to Win.
