    Just a question @CuddleWings
    "Field raid boss loot rules apply. Loot is distributed as follows to your party or raid:

    - 80% and greater of the damage dealt to the field raid boss by your party or raid: 3 loot boxes for each Rider in the group
    - 40% - 79% of the damage dealt to the field raid boss by your party or raid: 2 loot boxes for each Rider in the group
    - 5% - 39% of the damage dealt to the field raid boss by your party or raid: 1 Loot box for each Rider in the group
    - 4% or less of the damage dealt to the field raid boss by your party or raid: No loot box for Riders in the group"

    This means that a raid of 10 players will receive 30x Loot Boxes? O.o
    Did you fix the loot bug and disable auto-loot during raids? Or we'll still see ppl stealing loots like the old times? Or we'll still see pets with auto-loot making the loot a whole mess?
    Wasn't better this way:
    - 80%+ 1 Loot Box with 3 items for each rider in the group
    - 40-79% 1 Loot Box with 2 items for each rider in the group
    - 5-39% 1 Loot Box with 1 item for each rider in the group
    - 1-4% 4g for each rider in the group (even low geared riders which tried their best should receive a little reward)

    isn't this the solution for auto loot and stealing problems? Make things also more fast with looting and such. Merge 2-3 boxes into 1 with the same number of items which we could find in 3 boxes. In this way even if we could drop 3 legendary in 3 different boxes, with this system we'll still be able to get 3 legendary but in the same box without any worry that someone will steal or mess loot in any way.

    Another question:
    Did you fixed the chance to being kicked during fight or before looting? Once boss is engaged and ppl did his best shouldn't be kicked.
    Or even when kicked but if you have being active during raid you should still be able to roll even if ppl kick you once boss died.

    I was totally hoping for a new Tropical Ramphastos event or something similar for Chinese Year of the Rooster with the new Lunar Year since I couldn't add new characters until recently and they missed it. Oh well.

    Sometimes it is really unfair to get kicked from a group when loot starts. but then again there is a good reason to keep it. Yesterday we were on Flam, 10 people raid, it was said at least 5 times to disable the auto loot yet someone still did not disable, thanks to his pet someone bugged the only legendary item we got, so after we saw whose pet was looting stuff, he got kicked immediately. From one side, it would be fair, from the other, it would be really unfair against the whole raid because thanks to that player many people did not get anything. I think the whole auto-loot should be changed to only copper- silver- gold and common items, nothing more.

    They could simply disable auto-loot when a raid is formed or when entering Legendary in group.
    Or as i said before, by simply merging loot from 3 boxes into a single one (with the same amount of drops which we could get from 3). In this way even if auto-loot is up, no way to steal or bug any kind of loot.
    Once you solved this issue, kick can be disabled 'cause there is not any more reason to kick during loot. Another story when loot is done and someone want to kick out of combat.
    It's a game fault the auto-loot bug or multi-loot steal, but isn't new so should be fixed already.

    Or put it in the loot distribution options? So the party leader can disable or nullify the loot pet option by simply checking a box?

    I'm experiencing the "Launcher.exe has stopped working", it happens every time I click Play. The blue screen from launcher appears, but one second later the launcher has stopped working. I've never had this before, and I play through Steam. Please fix this or give me some tips about solving it, because I really want that Legendary Mark Box D: D: D: D: D:
