Chests not activating in EC.

On two different days this week my guild has cleared all the trash in EC and one of the chests does not activate. The first time it was the chest right in front of Kephess, and the second time if was the chest before the Mindsweeper boss. Is anyone else having this issue since the patch?

"Boss encounters no longer drop rewards until the entire encounter has been cleared of enemies."

^^ I think this is the issue. I don't know why this was changed in the first place. I would rather have someone accidentally loot, than have loot bug out because a mob evaded, or something happened with some random npc that is now attached to the boss/chest. IMHO it should be changed back. ASAP!

To the Dev's:
Do you plan on replacing the Black Hole comms that we have missed out on? Do you plan on replacing the crafting mats? Do you have a eta on when this will be fixed.

We had this happen to us on our HM EC run on tuesday, the chest on the way to minefield did not activate. The rest of the chest activated correctly.
