I have suggested several times that they change the loot mechanics to stop this. These people AFK after joining groups just so they can get free stuff without putting forth any effort.

Change the loot drops so that in order to roll on a loot, you need to have caused damage to the enemy that dropped that loot.

This means you can't roll on anything unless you are shooting stuff. Also in order to roll on the end-mission loot (the good stuff) you need to cause damage to the boss.

This isn't a perfect fix, but it's a step in the right direction, and will drastically reduce the amount of free loot that these leechers are able to get. It will also be a completely un-noticeable safeguard to players that actually fight alongside their groups. I mean, unless you fly around and never shoot anything? Why would you do that?
