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?
I spend most of my time healing and doing support, this would get me to stop doing either of these things as less damage would mean less loot for me. I already get crap rewards for doing this, if I get a total of nothing I'm gonna say screw it and go escort.

Also it wont stop afk people, they are after the end rewards, not drops (mostly anyway).
