Good luck with that. BW doesn't respond to anything unless the topic generates 50+ pages of replies. IMHO, BW does a terrible job of interacting with their players. The only forum that has any sort of reasonable reply activity is the CS forum.

It could be a good system if they had some kind of gear detection system in place to stop people with say 136 items getting 126 or Healers getting dps Gear .

Or another way would be have it so Operation members have to accept master loot rules so have it when Op leader sets to master loot you have a box saying

"Do You Accept Master Loot Rules YES NO"

i think bugger all thought has gone into it and id did a eternity vault run and some got 3 lots of gear out of 4 bosses

The only reason your in there is to get the PvE Tier 1 & 2 gear, which in that situation a Healer isnt getting a DPS piece anyway.

The only way that'll happen is if you get one of the Energized pieces, which arent the point of EV to begin with but purely a bonus.

Really, the loot system is perfectly fine. Your not meant to gear up in a MMO without any effort involved, that effort is usually a time sink. Champ Bags and random loot in Normal Op's / HM FP's is SWTOR's time sink.

If they DID change it, they'd massively reduce the volume of loot (probably down to 1 piece per boss), to prevent you from gearing up fast... think about what your asking for here ;P
