    When the beacon is destroyed, why is it items fall on ground near it as supposed to going into backpacks? Some people that don't even hit it are able to just scoop them up. Is this a bug or is this done purpose?

    They do fall into your backpack... I haven't seen any fall on the ground.

    My theory on this (semi tested)... If an attacker had rights on the tower, and they are either dead or not in the city when the tower drops, that attackers item drops to the ground. I have also seen this with bosses.

    Maybe some people are overweight from all the gold they pick up and cant hold the item?

    Should go to bank instead. On the ground is just ignorant.
