Hate to break it to you, but no one had ever complained about it ever. Other servers use PD raid, and people don't complain. As far as I know, it was removed to "improve the RP experience." Yes, that seems to be the problem that everyone is complaining about, and not the economy or things of that sort. Woe is me who must call PD raid 😞
I'm sure it is quite nice to have, yeah. Any unfair advantage you can get tends to be nice to have. That's not really the debate, though. You see, the issue is that while it's nice for you to have, it's also a lazy band-aid of a "solution" that feels unfair to everybody else and doesn't even try to address the actual problems with current gameplay.
Yikes, you're an art student, right? Makes sense. Well, the PD party, not only a pretty awful job now, but it is filled with new players. New players go onto servers, and PD jobs allow for them to learn and gain a stable income. Getting random people to coordinate is funny. You are thinking of it like a regular base party where they all most likely know each other. So yes, a little handicap notification would be nice.
