Then, no one gets all "You took my loot" during group missions as often.


I think that this would be the best option.

Either you want a shot at getting the item or you donít.

Thereíd be no way for anyone to complain if they did not get something that they wanted.

I did another Elite STF run last night with a very good squad.

We all used the greed option on all items except the Borg drops. Towards the end of the Mission a very Rare Mk XII Shield dropped and I wanted it but because of how the flow of the mission had went up to that point I and 3 other team members chose Greed only to have our squad leader wait till we all made choices and go with need to snatch up the item.

I donít play many MMOs at all but of the ones that Iíve looked into the loot system has a silent random roll or a want or not option.
