Sometimes, while in a party, I open a chest or I kill a monster and all the loot is flagged with one of my friend's name. Why ?

It's not the same question; moreover I mentioned the question you are refering to in my own question... – Anto Jan 27 '13 at 19:42
I rejected the close vote. He really is asking how the game determines whose name gets tagged on a piece of loot initally, which is a dofferent question to the one linked and potentially a different answer – deutschZuid Jan 27 '13 at 20:42

You can check here how it got to the current FFA looting.

In the first page, you can see the official response:

When an item drops, how do you decide who gets the temporary allocation? Randomly among nearby players.

By the way, it's still an open beta, so it may change with any patch.
