@DavidC, the likeliness of the same person getting 3 or 4 items before you even get 1 item is very low, unless you out gear the raid as a whole, because of how the list rotates when people bid on items.Secondly, this system does not "punish" you for bad random loot any more than DKP or other loot systems, because regardless of the loot system; if it is not a good item for you, you don't roll/bid.Also, what tends to happen w/ SK is that the gear level of the entire raid raises more quickly, while individual gear levels change slowly.@loopinvariant, yes, the list is being kept outside of the group, similar to how DKP systems save the list. Like I said, this is a standing PUG, where many members are the same from week-to-week, but there are often new players in the group every week (in our case, we have around 10-15 static players, and an additional 10 non-static players).@Saryel, as far as the main/off spec gear is concerned, we usually don't bid for off-spec, unless it is a sought after off-spec item. This is really determined by the raid leader.In reality, I guess it depends on what you consider a "fair" system of looting. Better for you VS. Better for the raid
