Does not work after 1.2... good job bioware!!

6 HM FP's, 3 inquis, 1 sniper = 100% warrior gear...

Loot drops from endgame activities, such as Operations and Flashpoints, now take group composition into account.
They only said that it would take into account what classes were in the group, it didn't say that it was going to drop gear for them. Apparently they are just taking the group composition into account to guarantee that the classes in the FP/OP don't get anything.

Lol, yeah, I suppose, "taking into account" is open to a wide range of interpretations.

Well, so much for that...

My guild raided this weekend and we saw several JK rakata drops when there was no JK in the raid. No one even wanted it for companions. Most of them just rotted.

Few threads on this. Hopefully BW responds so we know: Bug or Feature

Yeah, did EV hard mode last night - lots of smuggler drops (including chest), no smuggler in group, wunderbar!

The smart loot system in 1.2 needs more smarts.

So, if I told you that I did EC last night and we had very mixed drops, not all one class, would you tell me I am lying? Loot is like this sometimes. Sometimes, we get all Aim gear with no bounty hunter in a group, other times it is all sorc gear(my guildie friend has 4 piece healing and dps rakata), other times it is very mixed. It is the very definition of random

The fact that so many people can come on here and complain that this 100% system of giving gear for the odd class out pretty well proves this is not random. We see a distinct pattern meaning not random.

The simple answer is BW done goofed on the "smart" loot system, to think it's random with such a drastic pattern emerging is plain ridiculous.
