Gear favoritism

Ok so this is something I've actually heard from a lot of other people. I'm noticing that gear drops in Flashpoints have been 85% aim gear. There's been times when I've had a full Force user group and practically nothing but Aim crap dropped. Why is this? Why do Flashpoints favor Bounty Hunters/Troopers?

RNG is random?

we have 3-4 BH in a 8 man op, and a heavy majority of the drops are for force users.

See as I said, I've seen the complete opposite in every single flashpoint I've run. Maybe operations favor Force users and Falshpoints favor Aim classes?

My simple answer for you, is BW did a truly awful job at itemizing the end game.

You know how when you are running a FP while levelling up the only gear that drops is gear that is usable by people present for the kill? Well I think this code is supposed to apply to HM FP's as well, but they got something wrong in the code so that it instead drops gear for the class that you are missing instead of the ones that are there. This is just a theory of mine, but from watching the drops in a lot of HM FP's it makes sense.

Try making a perfectly balanced group and see if you get mostly aim gear, I bet you are getting mostly aim stuff because you don't have a BH in your party.

Actually nope. I'm talking flashpoints I've done while leveling. I actually haven't done hardmodes yet. All of my characters are severely undergeared because flashpoints favor Aim classes.

Mako (BH companion, uses IA gear) had more tionese/columi gear well before I had the same level of gear.

Random numbers are random.. >_<

gear seems to come in streaks...don't ask why.

i.e. We went like 3 weeks without getting a single sith warrior drop, and then one night we had half of all loot drops be for sith warriors.

We've also had seven out of 10 rakata drops be for IA's in one EV, and then they went 2 weeks without getting a single one.
