This Title Has Nothing To Do With This Post

Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning is introducing a token system.
The RvR Quartermasters are "Barter" merchants who will trade players special items and equipment in exchange for specific items earned in RvR. These Quartermasters offer players an alternative way of obtaining items in RvR such as the item sets normally obtained via Keep PQ bags. In addition the RvR Quartermasters will offer exclusive items and rewards not obtainable elsewhere.
Under System Goals, Mythic lists the following:
Help offset "Bad Luck", allowing players to obtain items they may not have gotten out of PQ's due to unlucky rolls.
Personally, I've never understood why MMOs shifted so far towards rewarding luck instead of rewarding investment and smart play.

Anyways, Mythic may just have a game worth returning to come the Tomb Kings content expansion.

Update: The title for this post was from an old draft. I have changed the title to reflect that it has nothing to do with this actual post.
