What loot system do we use?
All loot systems have flaws. We use EPGP with a 20% weekly decay. This system have been modified over several expansions to eliminate the gap between new and old members.
The standard EPGP loot window for Deviant can be seen as follows:
Is there a trial period?
Yes and no. We have tryout rank, which member must be within for a minimum of 2 weeks. During this 2 week period, you are put at a lower priority for receiving loot; however, within most of our farmed encounters we do not need any of the drops. I assure you this is a very painless 2 weeks.
How old is your team?
