Forgive me if this has already been mentioned. I've been in a codine acoma the last couple of days. If it has, move along.

Has anyone else noticed that using the /emote option you can type exactly the same rolling language one would get if they typed /random 1 100? With emote however, you can actually pick your number. The roll color is the same color as the emote color text. I understand you may be able to change the color of emotes and I would suggest that. Just thought I'd point this out.

Thanks for telling me this, I had no idea and hopefully I haven't been cheated out of too many items. Going to change my emote color in chat now..

Typing /emote Somenub rolls 89 doesn't make it so.

whilst this is an interesting observation i don't understand how this affects the distribution of loot.

are you in groups where people use /roll instead of clicking the need button? if so, why??

we have need/greed buttons for this and with master loot on it should go to the person who needs it most.

if you type /emote failsauce rolls 100 then yay for him but the guy that clicked need and rolled a 1 still gets the loot.

People do loot the way they want. Silly to me, but whatever.

The thing to me is that, no matter what people are using /random for, if you can cheese it that easily, it's kind of a waste to even put it in the game to begin with.

I just tested this for myself, and the emote is a darker orange than the roll. So unless you have skewed your colors for emotes, you should be able to tell them apart.

Are people really using the /random command to roll for loot?

If they are using random for loot rolls they are doing it wrong. /random is for gambling, and RP

People who run with master looter tend to.
