@Chesseberry. Firstly I don't know how to make those nice quotes you manage to do so try to stay with me :)
Your first point: With a NEW system, one would expect an UPGRADE, at least I do that and I do NOT view going from one bad system to another bad system as an upgrade, I'd rather see those work-hours spent by Blizzard in some other area that needs it more.
Second point: If it "works just fine" I wouldn't have made this post, according to me there IS a problem and I later DO propose a way to change it to the better which you have quoted yourself so you have already answered that question yourself.
Third point: I never said I wanted to "revolutionize loot distribution in MMOs", I said I found a problem and I was implied (especially with the last sentence "Otherwise great expansion") that I am overall very satisfied with the current game of World of Warcraft but I found a problem which I could see need a revamp, and I provided a pretty simple solution.
And to your smaller points here; first this game already have LOADS of small reasons to keep your subscription up all the time, dailies, valor/conquest-cap etc. and the people like you, that wants 2x Kilrak to have both a transmogged and a untransmogged, also have these small reasons like dailies that I am sure that even you would prioritize over getting that second Kilrak (please do NOT use the argument "But I have already done all my dailies" and I hope you understand why).
Second point: Are you a majority? Sources. Obviously I liked the feeling of finally seeing my Lawbringer Legplats drop after 6 months of farming and it felt a little special, but I don't think that I the correct way of steering the game with the current player base getting younger and more impatient. With achievement already implanted Blizzard clearly stated that they want to go towards a lot less farming and a lot more rewarding for less (and in some ways easier) playing so I firmly believe you are part of a decreasing minority until you can prove me wrong with credible sources.
Third point: As a paladin I do not get off-spec gear dropping I can't really say much more then that MoP clearly shows that you should only get gear from your current spec, and I am pretty sure most people playing World of Warcraft would be more happy to receive a gear-upgrade before an extra epic chest when half their gear is blue. As for people badly wanting transmog, maybe we just add in that when a boss has dropped every gear-piece available for me all the items are put back into the loot-table. That way I can get my epics faster and you get to farm even more! (Because that is actually what you are saying).
Your fourth point: No, I haven't created a game that can match with World of Warcraft, and that is why I am currently here suggesting improvement to this game instead of working on my own game.
07/01/2013 13:11Posted by ElathinPlease tell me of a boss previously in WoW that checked your gear and only dropped the items you needed.
But when I have "Gauntlets of the Shadow's Caress" equipped and then win another pair - that's unfortuante and bad in itself but I then go and spend a coin hoping for maybe get the staff and it gives me.... yet another pair....
This (imo) is the the most broken, ugly part of the new loot system - it's lack of any smarts whatsoever.
Its function is to avoid the drama that ensued at times during Dragon Soul's LFR (such as a player needing on an item only to then try to sell it to the people that genuinely needed it and make profit off it).
On this case, though, if the item you really want finally drops, you won't have any competition, it'll be yours, no matter what.

So, why not rewarding those, who try their best? And this has nothing to do about raw numbers, but about activity.

Sure this helps, but what's preventing me from AFK after the pull?
Chances are very low, someone will vote you out afterwards.
