I looted a full TT ESI from a late Sunday night hunt(May 13) on a Charybdis, as the crowd was thinning out quite a lot. I believe the total loot from that Charybdis was 1650 something TT. It was also going to be my last group hunt of the night.

I agree with other people who think that DPS has a lot to to with who gets items on the shared loot hunts; but to those who think that it's only the ubers who always get items, I will mention that the gun I was using was a Tier 1 Camo Arms Urban Stalker, which is not anyone's idea of a massively powerful rifle.Not anymore, anyway, with all the more powerful (L) rifles available. Most of my shared loots prior to looting that item were very small; ~1-8% of the total; and no items. I think that I just happened to be putting in the most DPS in that thinning crowd, at a moment when MA's servers decided to drop a big ESI.

I'm posting this not to get congratulations from people, but because I believe that EU players should know what items are dropping, from what mobs, and ideally, who looted what items.

The cult of secrecy about who got what big item is not a very bright strategy long-term, because while it may boost the sales value short-term, I think it demoralizes many begining and intermediate players. Without that information, they have no useful knowledge to base their own strategy on; and they have no idea whether they are wasting their time and money with no hope of getting anything worthwhile.

I think we all know that for our own longterm satisfaction with this game, we need for those groups to be grinning with enthusiam, and growing.

I think some people like loot porn.

When I'm posting some, I'm just giving back to the community. :D

I was present when you happend to loot it, i was somewhat surprised of not getting anything worth the effort with a foeripper doing about 200dmg max a click (which i believe at the time was enough to be the top damager), but i am totally sending my congratulation on this great loot you had and i feel how good you felt seeing a loot alike, good job man keep on defending our precious living place, peace ;)

Huge gratz on your loot and nicelly said there.
Unfortunatly most people get fed up of pumping PEDs into the mobs and not seeing an item at all.

Gratz on the nice ESI.

Sidenote: Call me crazy, but I say it's BS that damage done increases drop chance of an item. It's all about PECspent/sec.
Can say that from doing few shared loot camping days. But that's just me,
