Anthem had a “loot shower” this weekend that caused masterwork and legendary items to drop at a vastly increased rate. It was reportedly the most fun Anthem had ever been.
BioWare fixed it within hours. Quicker, in fact, than it had fixed things like excessive load times.
Having had a taste of the high life, players are reluctant to return to Anthem’s grinding, discouraging endgame. They want the loot shower back, and they’ve staged a blackout protest to get it.
Whether or not that succeeds remains to be seen, but there’s quite a bit to tackle here, considering BioWare rushed to fix a bug that made the game *more fun*.
