Item Drops are rare
When playing tf2, i have trouble with item drops, i dont dont seem to get any... This makes me lose interest in the game because im always using the same weapons.

You get an item drop every 2 hours. In one week the maximum amount of drops are 5. Therefore you must play at least 2 hours to get an item.

In a single session? or short periods of online time which add up to two hours?

You get way more than 5 items every week, and items drop with a greater frequency than 2 hours. Usually.

"The current item drop system was introduced on April 20, 2010.[1] Players are guaranteed to find items at regular intervals of 30 to 70 minutes, with an average interval of 50 minutes."

Now they have made it so you have to accept one first before another comes up. And it doesnt even alert you when youve found one too.

more like getting anything to drop that isnt a crate or summer claim check is this games biggest problem. and before anyone says anything no i am not a f2p player. i occasionally get items and even dropped a hat before. however these last 4 months or so have been disgusting.

Not without an item acceptor script.

I get way more drops than that in a week. I get 1-2 drops each time I play TF2, which is every other day.
