You still get the loot at the end of the match tho. This article is confused.

@averagejoe Read it? Multiple people have encountered the same thing, and have NOT gotten the loot mailed to them. Chalk it up to a bug or something.

@joe yeah they tried to make it so that you get high raririty drops automatically even if you dont pick it up. It works.....sometimes....but like everything else in this game it might just be bugged or not work as intended.

Not really. You still get the loot at the end of the run. You don't have to physically pick it up.

According to one of the users of the article that’s not always the case, Which has happened to me for some of my little drops as well or they don’t show up at the end knowing that I got that specific rarity

You dont need to copy paste the same statement to every comment thread. Also loot is not guranteed to drop at the end of the match, confirmed.

@OCEANGROWNKUSH: LOL! Seems like this average guy can work for BioWare with how he's working overtime defending the game.

Check it. His drop can't be accessed due to the force field in the game. :(

You don't have to physically pick up drops to get them. The player still gets it at the end of the run.

All drops are behind force fields confirmed.

This is what counts for news these days?

I've had similar things happen in many games. It's annoying as all hell. Never thought a random collision detection bug which caused something like this to be newsworthy.
