The problem is with the loot timer.

We had a smuggler accidentally loot the Jedi Knight token. If the loot timer runs out, whatever hasn't been assigned gets treated as if it was passed on. The problem we had was that our two Jedi Knights didn't get a chance to roll on it because it was the last on the list and everyone spent the 1 minute loot timer talking about the gear beforehand.

Master Looter is a good "workaround" for this problem. However this is still a real problem. Here's why:

When the timer runs out, the items gets treated as if it is passed on, the very next person to loot the boss picks up the item automatically. THIS needs to be fixed. I agree with the thread creator's suggestions totally.

Also, we put in a ticket about having the item transferred to one of our Jedi Knights, it has been almost 3 weeks now and Bioware has yet to assist us. The person who looted the item put the ticket in as well... and yet no response or action taken yet.

So don't screw it up, because it doesn't look like Bioware is going to help you with this one.

We had a problem where we had two agent rakata helms drop and had two agents in the operation. Loot was set to NBG to get the crafting raws but there was a lot of confusion on how to get each helm to the agents rather than having one agent get both and the other get none. Glad to see they are fixing the crafting raws and other loot not being there when set to master looter, that will make things a lot cleaner for our runs.

We couldn't even see who selected Need/Greed or the rolls on any item because the 72 lines of text scrolled by. It was very confusing.

Which is why I suggest some changes to the system. Especially since it's a different system than normal mode.

So there's some suggestions to improve the game and reduce GM work load.
There is nothing wrong with the system, everything that happened to you was user error. If you aren't going to use master looter in hardmode/nightmare mode then you should have auto loot off and have 1 person loot each drop one at a time after you discuss who it goes to or who is rolling for it. The people who need it roll need, everyone else passes or greeds. The reason everything popped up at the same time was because someone in your raid made a mistake and looted it all at once, the marauder got the token because he rolled on it instead of passing.

Much of what I would suggest has already been said, but the solution really is pretty simple. Turn off auto-loot and have only the leader disperse items one at a time from the boss, calling the item out before looting it and determining who is going to be needing on it prior to sending it out for rolls... This isn't rocket science.

So you raid nightmare mode, and didnt know there was a graphical timer? Really? :P

Anyhow, as many people say this is YOUR fault. My guild has used the system where everyone turns auto-loof off, the raid leader links 1 item into the chat and we then discuss who gets it. Whoever we decide gets it rolls need, and everyone else roll greed.

There's enough whine threads on the forums, if everyone was gonna make one because of their own stupidity, the forums would be flooded.
