Now you can use a hack to unlock all the weapons in Call of Duty, or play on a different mode in Minecraft, or skip to the final bosses levels that skips this journey. Is it fun this way?
There's not going to be some dude camped in front of a tree preventing you from getting wood blocks is the difference here.

Don't forget, whoever gets this loot during the draft will more than likely be spending a ton of DKP within their guild to win it. Maybe they earned that DKP by killing Vindi, Velk, Talendor, Faydedar etc. but they are still spending plenty of time and effort to earn it. These characters are also more than likely level 60 and most of them probably many years old. I would say they are plenty deserving.

Isn't the draft only every 3 months anwyays?

Yeah, so they have a chance at something every three months, will have all their other guildies also wanting the same handful of loots, and are at the mercy of the mob's loot table that one week. And somehow we are supposed to believe that this bypasses delayed gratification?

Those mobs are going to drop those items every week no matter who kills them or how they did it. Honestly, what's the difference between someone from a smaller guild getting some items during a rotation and some warm body that shows up in a zerg guild?

Happiness, like wealth, is a relative concept. Other people having it literally hurts you. Fact.

"We all know quite a number of people who have everything that it would take to be happy, and they are not happy. Because they want something else, or they want more of the same.

And we all know people who have lots of misfortune, and they are deeply happy. They radiate happiness. Why? Because they're gateful."

TLDR- It's gratefulness that makes us happy.
