Would people still be complaining about the loot and only getting one chest? or would they view it as reasonable and still enjoy the activity for what it is? Edit: Seems like most people would want a game mode that is hard but last only about ten min where the reward is a weapon of their choosing (in the archetype they desire) with the specific perks they are looking for for their own god roll and master worked to the stat they want. In which I'm guessing they would play it just enough times (5-6) to get all the different weapon types they want then would never play it again.
if the exploit never existed i think it wouldn't be played and enjoyed as much. people would play it on Tuesday for the powerful drop reset and then never touch it again until next reset. as much as i love the game mode, it is now impossible to find people.
