The July 23rd patch notes included that Pinatas would give rewards only on a kill. Unfortunately, I have some behaviour issues to report.
If I am NOT in a party, and I spawn a pinata, the person who kills it gets all the rewards. Regardless of if that's me or someone else. I suspect that if that person is in a party the rewards might be split, but that's not something I tested.
If I am NOT in a party, and I spawn a pinata, and I kill it after someone else has struck it, I get all the rewards.
If I AM in a party, and I spawn a pinata, and someone from my party kills it, the rewards are split among us.
This seems... worse than the previous behaviour of "everyone who hits a pinata gets some rewards". In particular, "the killshot gets all the rewards, split among their party" seems bad, when that means no rewards for the pinata spawner.@nitocris83
not a BUG, per se, but very much a weird behaviour subject to griefing.
