I could be wrong but that is my take on it anyways.
It's a dice roll, random integer from 1 to 100. And, yes, people can just sit at the warp in and hit need and collect loot. It's occasionally a problem, but often enough groups don't finish or do very poorly with somebody doing this and many people will abandon the group when they see it, so it's not really in their best interest.
