Heh... I'll be honest, I love these Loot-Splosions. But if it's a bug, it should be fixed.
Now, I'm not sure if they're implemented by Server Admins, and if this is the case, then I think it should stay. I've seen servers that choose to have very low loot yeilds, and frankly I don't mind if some servers choose to have Loot-Splosions.
But, if it IS INFACT a bug, then the bug should be fixed; and admins should retain the right to adjust how much loot is spawned.
