This, while humorous, is actually the crux of the matter. While I would love to see full looting, it's never going to happen in this game. A full looting PvP game needs to be designed that way from the ground up. STO is an item based game. Full loot PvP games are skill based (meaning everyone runs around with basically the same gear... cheap gear that's easy to replace, usually player crafted).
It is a sad sad world of mmos and to think we all waited years for a startrek mmorpg to get nothing more the a shall. I truth I gotten $6 PC game with more content and depth hell I gooten free one toooooo.
