Can we clarify the rules for the Heli Drop please?
A FFA race is all fine, but there's an inherent flaw with this mission in that once the first person gets to the flag, it takes a minute or more for the crates to drop. So the first person can get there, then anyone who happens upon the site while the crates are still dropping can claim the loot?
And before you say "this doesn't happen very often", it's happened to me 3 times over the last couple months, a couple times by some who really didn't know any better, and once by someone who has been a long time player who had flown 2 new players over to the spot as the crates were dropping so they could land and loot while I was still waiting for the crates. They were being greedy and taking everything on the server that was either leftover loot or FFA, whereas at the time I was just starting my base over after a wipe or something and really needed the building mats.
Anyway, what I propose for this mission is that the FIRST ONE TO THE FLAG GETS THE LOOT. Simple as that. It's the only way I can see to keep the greedy piggybackers in line.
