Escorts / Cruiser - loot drops
Ok so i play a Eng Cruiser pilot. I keep getting escorts following me, they wait for me to attack something and take agro and start tanking then they attack what ever im attacking and kill it b4 i can, since they do more dps they get all the loot and i get shafted.
Could we please work out a system where the loot from a ship goes to the first person to fire on it, set a range mod on it so if u fire on it once and run out of range u don't get all the loot with no work.
It just really bugs me that im using my skills to tank the dps output of a mob and the escort uses there skills to destroy the mob, and since *it seems to me* that the loot drop system is based on DPS done to target i.e person who did the most dps gets the loot. And since escorts are pure dps boats this seems rather unfair.
Not even sure if a dev will read this. Kinda expect to get flamed for voicing me irritation but meh.
- I realize that grouping and setting loot mode to need greed can sort this but i keep getting escort pilots that understand how things work and understandably don't bother to group cos they can just kill steal everything out from under you.
