A few days ago, I conducted an experiment to determine if looking at the backpack every time I die denies me my item drop. (Just so you know, I did this before realising it was an experiment.) For 5 days, every time I died, I looked at my backpack and scrolled through a few pages before resuming the game again. Throughout these 5 days, I did not find a single item. However, the day after the 5th day, I have found about 5-6 items in 3-4 hours. Coincidence? Anyone else had the same problem? If you haven't been finding as many items as you like, stop looking at your backpack. Maybe this a ploy by Valve to keep people interested in the game? If no-one looks at their backpack, they might assume that you don't care, therefore giving you items so you do care. Discuss.
