Completely a nice guy thing, I don't see how someone could say its a jerk move. People who roll to sell or trade for something else are in the wrong and he is doing more to fix it then anyone else. He isn't giving it out for a profit for himself or at random, he is giving it to the real winner who actually needs it not some douche who is gonna trade or sell it.
If you rolled on it, you won the item in a fair roll with equal chances to win. If you decide to give your winnings to someone else you deem is worthy, it is entirely your right to do so. Anyone saying anything else is incorrect.
Seriously people, it's not as if he's guaranteed the item every roll. Everyone had a fair shot at the item, and even with people doing this, players who need the item are getting it.
Did he/I win the loot? Yes
Is this loot now his/mine? Yes
Can he/I do whatever the fuck we want with said loot? Yes
If I feel as though one raider did better then another and they both need it for an upgrade, the better player will win it. In his/my eyes they are more deserving, whether you think that is true or not is really the only irrelevant thing.
It's okay to need on items even though you have NO use for it what so ever. It's actually best if everyone did this. Because everyone killed the boss and all should have a chance of winning items, right? Right?
But if you pass your item on to someone else? Then damn you to hell!
considering that a friend of mine lost the mace off of deathwing last night to someone doing the exact same thing as you, I count that as a very thoughtless and power-hungry move.
(person who rolled need already had mace equipped)
Nice guy. To me it seems you keep the "I'm gonna roll on this gear to disenchant it" guy away from the loot which is a good thing.
You assume that the other 9/10ths of people in raid were in agreement with his idea. Considering that it's in essence stealing loot from the highest roller who may or may not have a use for it, it's not a "fix" for the system.However you are also wrong, the system is not best left alone. Anything people can do to improve it themselves like the OP should do so.
What if the second highest roll is wearing 397 but needs the 384 for his four piece, which is absolutely an upgrade? What if he's only wearing two tier pieces because it's not a dps increase until he swaps to four piece? How would the op know he needed them for four piece? What if he's purposely wearing shitty shoulders with the intent of giving them to his buddy he q'd with? What if he has heroic shoulders in his bags but is pretending it's an upgrade just so he can de it later? What if, what if, what if?
Case in point (here it is, mkay) - why are people fucking around with a system and playing god when they don't have all the details? Why are people self-righteously taking it upon themselves to judge who gets the piece of gear and who doesn't? Let rolls be rolls. If someone gets screwed over, someone gets screwed over. Let it be. Don't trot around like a saint after you have decided for 24 other people who deserves what.

Its very, very arrogant and loot godish, however you look at it.
Cho’Gall: Cairne Bloodhoof is dead? Did we kill him?
Deathwing: No. The Grimtotems weakened him with poison, and then Garrosh accidentally hacked him to death with an axe during a heated political discussion.
Cho’Gall: How do you accidentally kill someone with an axe?
Definitively not a jerk like all the ignorant people are saying :P You are giving it to whoever rolls 2nd (or 3rd if 2nd is rolling but doesen't need it)

right, he won the loot that he has no use for over someone who may have a use for it. Then he decided who would get it based on incomplete information. So... in answer to the original question, no that was not nice, it was mean even if it wasn't meanspirited.
He's not being a jerk but hes not really a nice guy either. Basically what he is doing is trying to prevent people from getting loot they dont need who possibly wanted to sell or trade it or vendor it because they can. If he wins and the 2nd best roller can use the item, he give it to him. If he doesnt roll, that guy wins the roll and gets the item anyway. In this situation he just makes himself feel good because he thinks he is giving someone loot even though they would have won it anyway if he didnt roll. If the next best roller was needing to trade it for something else or to try to sell it(they already had the item or better) then he prevented a jerk/griefer from getting the item.
This wouldnt be an issue if people did not roll need on items they cant/wont use themselves. Winning an item you already have ub order to get something for it is a jerk move and just because you can roll on something doesnt mean you should.
master- my friend went afk after he rolled because he had to use the bathroom, so he wasn't there when the priest was giving the mace away. No he didn't have the mace, and the highest roller (who won and gave away) had the mace which means he had no in-game use for it.
