What is the point of the item change if you're able to get gold or exp from the "?" cubes? This makes absolutely no sense. The problem was, people weren't getting items, or the items they were getting were bad compared to what other people were getting, and some people were getting 4-5 items on the first 3 pve rounds. The change on pbe does almost nothing to remedy this problem. You should be getting GUARANTEED items from pve rounds, all this change did was substitute getting nothing with getting 1-3 gold or exp (which can really fuck you over).
And for the love of god, put a cap on the maximum amount of items someone can get off pve rounds.
