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.

loot drops are actually a round robin system

If u group up with some escorts the loot could be shared. I get loot even without shooting some ships when i'm in a team. Just try to play the game like its meant to be.. with buddies and not solo.

Well then you run into the problem of people not grouping up with you just so they can kill-steal the loot.

And not everyone is playing this game as a group to do every mission person.

Theres always the jerks who invite when you're in combat and set to master loot. Jerks stealing your gear.... grr.

ive had that happen to me a few times now i get invited to group and one person seems to get everything.. i asume that was set to master looter, really put me off grouping tbh till then i always acsepted group invite's since there is no way to tell what the loot mode is set to... it can be a pain.
