RNGesus is not kind

I would like to describe a frustrating situation that occurs all to often in SWTOR. Today, I opened 70 Tier 3 command crates, 42 of them on one toon, and in all those boxes, again a total of 70, I received exactly 2 pieces of tier 3 equipment. In addition I would also like to point out that the same toon that opened those 42 command crates, and is now lvl 227 in command rank, is also still sporting several pieces of tier 1 equipment, because the drop rate is so low that it is nearly impossible to acquire a complete set of tier gear before reaching the next tier. This is ridiculous, and leads to severe frustration with the grind. When you spend hours and hours grinding away at something, only to receive little, or no reward at all, this makes you not want to bother at all. Please, either scrap the RNG system completely, or seriously increase the drop rate of tier appropriate gear in the command crates. In addition, you might want to consider upping, astronomically, the amount of unassembled components being distributed during PvP. If it is your attention that multiple sources be used to acquire gear, then increase the reward for doing so. I would also like to suggest, in the event the current system continues on, which I fear is highly likely, Please fix it so that if you are given a duplicate piece of tier gear from the crates, or given a piece that you do not wish to use, allow the players to swap that piece for a piece that they do want/need.

RNGesus is never on your side.
Hairy Co-pilot.

RNGesus hates everyone equally.

"let the children come to me so i can give them green implants that aren't right for their class"

Removing green and blue gear from the loot table would help.

There is a reason that I refer to the personification of chance as the Mistress of Pain. (aka the goddess Fortuna, aka Lady Luck). I think you may have stumbled on to it.

You should all play Bloodbowl some time. You'll know what pain is then.

This RNGesus iteration is the most beneficent entity ever created in comparison.

There's always something worse out there. Doesn't make this better. It's like choosing between two diseases...I'd rather just be healthy really.
Don't freak out, I'm just here by the grace of a referal. Nothing more.
