I agree with Sham about crafting requirements. It feels like it was changed from understandably heavy to punish-them-all heavy. That's too much. Some of us will do whatever work is required no matter how hard it is, but that's why i feel qualified to weigh in on this: i spent too much time working, over time spent enjoying the fruits of that work.
As for full loot drop (FLD), i and my team (and a few other teams, and many new players) have enjoyed the distinct lack of jackasses that come with FLD. We have also missed the non-jackasses, some of whom are dear friends. Should we add FLD to get the non-jackasses back, and get all the jackasses along with them? Nope. This community already has some FLD servers. I hope they enjoy those servers, and live long happy lives. Meanwhile Reloaded is the only PvE-friendly option. But mainly, do i want to play with jackasses? The answer will always be no.
We do have some FLD areas on Reloaded, and playing there can be spicy. And we have some PvE quests that are open to the public, where PvP can erupt anytime. Junktown's Zombie Invasion is one, and L.A. Gold Reserve is another. Anyone can be targeted for unwanted PvP while hunting lockers too. And anyone can tag along in your private quest and mess you up with unwanted PvP there too. Spicy! Fun, but not overwhelming.
And that's what we're really talking about, isn't it: Unwanted PvP. It's the ability for a jackass to ruin your game experience. His enjoyment is not the creative content, or Fallout at all. His entertainment is not the quest or story, or Fallout 1/2 combat mechanics. No, for the jackass it's all about ruining your experience here. In fact, if he tries, and you seem to enjoy it, he loses interest in you, because he's only after someone who might quit over it. He is sick. He needs help. Let him into your party, and he's the one who makes you consider hiring a bouncer next time.
Season 3 is that bouncer: less people, but better quality party overall.
