This is why roll systems fail. Hard.I pug ToC25 every week for Deaths Choice. I cant reserve the item because no-one on my server will join a pug with an item resevered, so i'm forced to roll.I've done the instance well over 10 times. I've seen it drop 5 times.Every single person i lost it to did less dps than me. Sometimes maybe only a little less, but i have lost a Deaths Choice to a warrior doing 4k dps... on Twin Val'kyr 25 man.It's gotten to a stage where i'm basically making a pug to ninja it. I'm sick of losing the bloody thing to scrubs who aren't pulling as much weight as i am. This is the main flaw of the roll system. It's luck, nothing else is considered.I lead a pug to Marrowgar 25 some times ago for the weekly, we managed to get him down and the caster dps ring drops. Rolls go and the top two stand out like a sore thumb to me, second highest has done 7-8k dps and the highest did 2.4k. Still peeved at losing items to shit players not doing there job right, i gave it to the second highest roller.I didn't know the guy, i dolled out loot to others in the raid who rolled highest as they'd all performed within' reason. But by doing this the guys guild FLIPPED OUT. They went nuts and labelled me a ninja. Because i wouldn't give a shit player a piece of loot he really didn't deserve.The winner summed the situation up to in the best words i've heard. "I could have done my rotation and gotten that dps, or i could have just spammed Ice Lance. Either way, i had the same chance of winning no matter what i did in the fight with a roll system"Of course, with me as a raid leader that's not entirely true.
