Pre-0.6.0, loot was far too common. I had too many armor inserts than I could use. I agree with the decision to hold back on the loot crates; however, I think they've gone too far. What's more, the loot we do receive is no longer useful to most of us. I would much rather previously-common grenades than previously-rare scopes and sights. I opened three crates in 0.6.0, and I received a 4x SUSAT, a 1x Open Reflex, and a USP 45 (or whatever the level 1 pistol is). I hate the SUSAT, the pistol was a downgrade from what I already had, and I had no gun which to put the Open Reflex on. If loot is going to be as rare as it is in 0.6.0, you have to give us useful stuff.
