My Little Borg: Friendship is Irrelevant
I am not saying that the chance is higher at try 10.
I am saying that the chance they got the item is higher if you calculate the totals from every try of those 10.
This means that in 2 kills you will have 0.9*0.9 = 0.81 (81%) chance of not getting it at all.
And in 10 kills you will have 0.9^10 = 0.35 (35%) chance of not getting it at all.

Today you have valor gear as an alternative to bad drop rates.
And half MC you had to use green FR gear.

My Little Borg: Friendship is Irrelevant
Dailies are not forced but due to my insane bad luck with gearing as a tank - 1 item from MSV normal so far, 1 from MSV LFR, still running with an ilvl 450 crafted belt and legs since they refuse to drop in heroics and pumping money into crafted and BOE epics I have no other option. So yes I could just not do dailies and continue relying on luck which hasnt worked thus far, or I can grind dailies for a guaranteed bit of gear.
Not 'forced' but it feels like they are 'forced' since it seems thats my only viable option of getting guaranteed loot.
I always find this an odd subject because getting loot from dungeons and raids is entirely RNG based and dailies give you that option to get loot without relying on luck. RNG kicks me in the teeth so I've only got the dailies to fall back on.
Let me elaborate. As I said, the game is an evolving story. As much as you don't believe it... the rep factions are part of that story. Blizzard wants you to realize that you need to progress with each faction's story to get the best gear they have to offer. Sure, you may not get much of the story until the very end, but if you think about it (as a whole) in terms of a story, it makes sense. As an example, I have items for sale. I keep some of them safely tucked away for whatever reason I may have. Could be that these items are highly sought after because they could be copied by other groups, some of the items could be controversial... really, the reason doesn't matter. Now, you come to me and are interested in obtaining the items I have... I need you to show me you aren't going to screw me over, thus I make you work a little harder to get the top of the line items I have. I have to know I can trust you to not destroy my business. That's what the rep factions are doing with the player.
Of course, based on your reply, you don't care about the story of the game. You simply want the path of least resistance, but you want ALL of the benefits therein.
Finally, I would like to touch on the last line of your reply to me.
"Frankly the story in the game is piss poor anyway and story concerns should NEVER over write game play issues." As for the story being piss poor... that's a personal opinion where we differ. You have every right to feel the way you do, though it begs the question... why do you torture yourself and play through something you call "piss poor"? And this idea of story concerns never overwriting game play issues. To be honest, I am not sure where you are getting this kind of stuff. To me, it boils down to "The game is making me work harder than I choose to... but I still want all of the rewards that people who put in the time end up getting."
Aside from you, Leonard McCoy, and back to the question at hand. Has anyone considered that Blizzard admitted this to shut the complainers up? Is it possible that Blizzard is changing things to prove to the community that the set up for 5.1 wasn't really that bad? I will be interested in seeing what people think when 5.2 comes out. Wonder how many threads like this will crop up... At which point, those of us who didn't think the dailies were a problem can sit back and giggle at all of the same people complaining about the 5.2 version. Many good times will be had.

If you factor in herpaderps needing to overgear it, then yes, MSV was tuned for a mix of blues and epics. Epics that drop in the instance. You know, the way raids are supposed to work.So MSV was tuned with a mix of 463/489 gear - VP gear. Or full LFR gear.
I bought a grand total of two valor items before 5.1, shoulders and ring. My DPS increased maybe 1% because of them.
When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade. Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don't want your damn lemons! What am I supposed to do with these?! Demand to see life's manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! With the lemons! I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!
How the hell isn't that mandatory?

It is idiotic because from a customer point of view is does not matter the result is the same either way people are going to stop paying and by arguing the customer is wrong all you are going to do is ensure that they will not return or buy your future products. But hey it's better to right and poor.
Again you are answering something that is not there. Where did I write that you cannot obtain gear through other means? The fact remains that people feel that they are forced to run dailies this is not going to be changed by the fact you could gear your character through other less efficient ways. Some of those people have quit and will not return and no amount of telling them they could run heroics a hundred odd times instead is going to bring them back.
