People get gear assigned to them sometimes in normal EV, nothing you can do about that. HMs appeared to have full masterloot capabilites, but we were on the basic need/greed system, so I can't confirm.
Anyone knows if there is a "/roll" command or something like that in the meanwhile? After what I heard before there was no possibility to randomize who gets what with several people needing in masterlooter. Not sure if this changed.
