The guild I'm in is fairly casual and we just use /rolls and it usually works out fine. We've only had one issue of a person getting upset. A mage (who already outgeared the entire raid) rolled against my warlock for the caster dagger in Firelands. I won the roll and the mage began to go on for hours about how he should have gotten it because 3 months ago (at the time) I won the wand that he wanted as well, neglecting to reflect on the fact that 1) we are a MS over OS /roll guild (he has been a member for over a year and is well aware of this) and 2) that he not only won the helm from omnitrion and shoulders from atramedes, but in the same night won the helm and shoulder tokens from the end bosses and sharded the other 2 pieces without even offering those 2 offset pieces to the other clothies (we were under the 2 hour trade limit time for both items).He has since started becoming more and more infrequent with his raid attendance and nobody else has ever complained about loot. Most of the raiders continue to show up every night, and we are all friendly with eachother. Recently I won a necklace in a roll and noticed that another member was way less geared than myself and I in turn passed it to him, situations like this happen often between us. We also all agreed to not free roll on BoEs and instead have them sold on the AH to fund the guild bank or if they can be used, given to backup raiders/alts who raid in other guild groups.Not saying this system would work for everybody, or even most people, but if your group is composed primarily of even headed people who respect eachother then there is nothing wrong with a /roll system. Just be wary of those crazed mages who are completely fine with the system until they get a low roll. :p
