    -Not asking you to toss your current team, but you'll see new options appear as you continue, and you may eventually phase out those level 11s. That's normal and expected. Your current roster will also benefit from further rebalancing that was not possible before, and also from new gear traits, leader traits, and such that we are now able to add in

    Well Shteevie you have to get the gear first and frankly I'm just not seeing any gear besides rare crap, that is not equal to my player levels. A level 16 hunter shouldn't be pulling a 13-15 rare rifle. It wasn't like this 6 months ago.

    I remember seeing there would be better or easier ways to get gear, NOT HAPPENING!!! I use to like the epic crates, I saw they would be returning in some form, NOT HAPPENING!!! So we are left with the 7.5k LOTTERY that is basically useless because I've gotten level 18 equipment. It will be months before it will be useful to me.

    I'd love to worry about traits but I gotta be able to get some gear first. :(

    I really like the weekly show missions. Kudos on that part of the update :)

    Have to agree with @soggybottoms drop rate on items has been terribly disappointing even to the point where I won't use gold to unlock gold crates as I know it'll be lvl 16-19 rare,.. Has this been done deliberately or is it some thing that needs fixing asap

    We changed the bronze and silver crates in gear scavenges to drop gear much more often. The levels or rarities of the gear drops were not adjusted in 2.1 or 2.2. There is no case in the game where the gear from crates has such a wide starting level range. Nothing was done deliberately to make your drops any less good than they have ever been.

    Nope. Gear drops were hurt several times. I'll agree it might have been before the points mentioned. The most recent that was perceptible to me was somewhere around the time level 20 gear was removed from the game. If it wasn't changed before that, it was rigged to decrease as level progressed. At this point, I would not even bend over to pick up a silver gear crate on hard, let alone watch a video or spend gold. I know it's scrap. It wasn't always this way.

    I really think the crates purchased with TGs should be brought back. That way a player needing to build an arsenal can do that while those players that are focusing on your token system can buy those. I'm happy with my epic and legendary stable but am using weapons that r 2 levels higher that are max'd out. I even have a hunter with an upgraded rare rifle, so I am not being picky. Frankly when it comes to the legendary weapon for sale, that great but it takes me a very very long time to save up 12.5 K. I just don't see a lot of options.
    Thank you for taking the time to comment on my earlier comment.

    Didn't mean that how sinister it may have sounded,..
    I was wondering if it was a deliberate move needed to be done or if it was a glitch sorry
    I guess iv just been super unlucky recently cos since the update I seem to be pulling a lot more items just at a lower base rate than before,.. Epic and legendary gear for me seems to be on rations,.. My gold crates rarly bear lg or epic gear

    Added an image of my typical drop rate,... Nothing of any use
