It's been known for a while on the forums that master loot bugs out loot I'm not sure how anyone can miss that. A tip for the future, set it to group loot and have one person in the raid loot the items from the chest/corpse one by one, make sure that auto loot is disabled.

Nothing new and yes loot bugs left and right.
common issues.

- Boss doesn't drop loot

- ML can't assign loot

- People can't pick up loot.

Best is to put it on FFA and make sure people got auto loot off.
Would have been so much better if ML just worked and well a basic /random roll option.

But hey making a loot system is difficult >_>, no one ever did that right before.

the funny part is how the gm acts, competence seems to be the least favoured skill among many of the employees.

Tbh I wasn't aware of ML bugs, it's been working fine previously for us but thanks for letting me know.

I still find it hilarious that he has no idea what game we're playing :P

As stated above thats so sadly funny I hope at least BW/EA/outsourcer isn't paying them more that whatever min wage is in the relevant region/country
The only thing that should impact a players success/failure in pvpplayervsplayeris his/her skill not what they are wearing. Otherwise call it GvG gear vs gear, crunch the #'s in a calc, face-roll your keyboard, and go watch TV.polls by pauloleson

I have another nice encounter with a "gm" doing what he does best.

2nd week in a row we have ended up with no other loot then 1 Schematic(usually Synthweaving) and Commendations on Hardmode Ancient Pylons, we also used master loot. Previously we've gotten a few Relics(might have been on normal mode a few weeks ago? but I also think we got it on Hard mode).

We changed loot settings after Pylons, to Round Robbing(?). This because I've read a few other people also saying they didn't get tokens with master looter. We didn't get tokens from 1st boss EV(HM) last week either, but we did this week.

And, we still don't get Alien Data Cubes while using Master Looter.

Our Raid leader(and Master Looter), havn't bothered sending in tickets on this as he thought it might be intended that way, but there are obviously diffrent opinions on this subject, from Bioware's side. It would be awesome if we could get a definate "Yes, it's a bug" or "No, this is not a bug, and it's intended this way." answer.

Well, it clearly depends on which week it is. If this happens next week then it's a bug. If not, it's a feature.

Looks like outsourced "help" to me. You probably got some guy in India who doesn't know anything about the game besides writing up a bug ticket.

Guess we're gonna need to create a 50 page thread to get a response of some kind...
