The loot container's only goal is to hold what I manage to bring back form PvP. I normally sell the stuff that I get but I am trying to hold onto it, and use it at need and maybe just have it as a trophy case. I don't know, we will see how it goes.
The selection of useful stuff is not bad as well. maybe I can use it to fit my ships at some future point.
Sometimes I explode before I get home with loot. If someone dies on the roam they are given all of the loot. So its not a grand total. Its more from the last two nights or so.
