You broke it.
The chest you have to clear to to get the extra commendations does not become available and stays red.

I worked with a programmer who never tested anything once. He kept telling me he had fixed his part and everytime I'd integrate it with mine I'd discover it wasn't fixed or a new bug was created and he'd waste my time rather than take a few minutes to just test it out... eventually we fired him.

I'm reminded of him today. Thx for the memories.

Clear to the chest faster and it becomes available.
Never had an issue getting this one, I believe the issue sits between 8 chairs and keyboards.

Do you read patch notes? Have you raided today?
My money is on NO.

Obviously if I say they broke it.... it would imply it once worked...
They changed the loot source but forgot to change the trigger that unlocks access to the bonus chest.

If that's the case you have to clear out all that trash in the trenches to loot that chest that a load of bull crap. why would a company require you to clear trash to loot a stupid chest for 4 comms, in that case they should make it drop 20 comms and black and purple crystal. risk VS reward, for all the work that's required to get them.

The reward for that chest is decent enough. It's only one or two extra pulls that are of moderate difficulty. For a decent group, this should be only a minute or two diversion.

That said, the chest that used to hold the Firebrand and Stormcaller loot should either be gone or locked. The loot drops from one of the tanks.

As for the optional chest with Black Hole comms and some other neat stuff, I'm not sure whether it has a locked/unlock function or if it's like an open world chest. If it is lock/unlock as you say, I wonder what was the condition for it to be unlocked. It might have been opening the chest from the Firebrand/Stormcaller fight, which shouldn't exist. Which means, the conditions that must be met to unlock the chest are no longer available, which then means the chest will stay in its default state, locked, forever.

That is, if the boss chest was what unlocked this optional one. A more logical step to unlocking the chest would be having the entire mob around it be dead.

Did story mode denova today, same thing happened.

Firebrand dropped the regular boss loot from the tank fight. Cleared trash to the chest in the trenches (most of them at least). Chest stayed locked. AMAGAWD I am owed 4 black hole comms!! (but srsly, kinda sucks).

One raid member went back to the chest after minesweeper and it was gone completely.

^^

When the dev team changed the loot from the chest on 2 tanks and instead put it on Firebrand, it broke the trigger. While only a theory because we are not allowed to view their spaghetti code, it is the only theory that makes sense.

So between this tonight, and the 3 weeks Nightmare Pilgrim weekly was bugged, I am out 16 comms. Is it a big deal? Not really, but it makes getting my offset a little easier.

Yup we had the same thing clearing EC SM last night, glad to see its not just us we all bug reported it and got the standard we dont care reply saying they cant confirm our report (even though we where still in the OP at the time) and give us all the black hole tokens.

We can confirm yes the second chest is indeed broken, the one in the trenches and we got there about 5 min after dropping the boss, Ie not leaving and coming back another night.

I think some one said further up they think bowares messed up the trigger for the chest.. sounds about right to me!..

more patch more bugs.
