Did a story mode 8 man last night and we also found the chest in the trenches to be locked. Luckily, most of us in the group weren't desperate for comms, so we just finished the instance and let it go. I do have to echo the sentiments of some of the other posters though, that the patches seem to break more than they fix. It's becoming quite comical at this point.

This needs to be fixed ASAP, as in, the very next patch if not sooner. If not, my personal conclusion would be that you don't care that much about your ops community, as I can't see that this would be a hard bug to fix requiring multiple weeks of effort.

My guild did SM Denova as well and ran into this.

Something to note here:

We skipped the trash after the cave between Zorn and Toth and the first chest. That chest opened for us. The problem is definitely the trigger for the Firebrand and Stormcaller "patch".
DPS is science. Healing is art. Tanking is strategy.

Am glad this was acknowledged and will hopefully be fixed tonight, but it would be nice if the CSRs gave us our comms or if a map reduce was run to give them out.

Dev #2 why its working just fine.
Dev #1 I'm bored and want to mess with something that is working just fine.
Dev#2 No problem

Dev#2 Yes but didn't have any testers to test it.
Dev#1 that's OK it was working fine before will just run with it.

Players Hello what are you doing there? the chest is broken cant get our Comms. did you guys test it?
Dev#1 I told you to test it
Dev#2 Oops
it's my private opinion that BW doesn't actually have a full time play-test group.
