Jul 20th 2009 12:54PM I joined a fully established guild about two months ago, that had been around for years, that has always used loot council. I made friends with my section officer, got geared up, and then usurped his officer spot when he began missing raids. Currently only Yogg stands in our way, and there is no brink in sight.
Loot council might not be "fair" in a merit-based sort of way, but if you're reasonably intelligent and are able to socially interact with people, attend raids, and do reasonably well on meters then the world is your oyster.

If you're not giving loot to BAD people, and they quit, so what?
Recruitment seems to be your issue, not loot distribution.
Randomized loot systems cater to scrubs.
