Summarize your bug Freeplay event chests were not opening after completing freeplay events
How often does the bug occur? Occasionally (10% - 49%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Respawn while attempting to complete an event. Attempt to complete new, different world events afterwards.
What happens when the bug occurs? The chest that spawns at the end of a freeplay event cannot be opened
What should be happening instead? The chest that spawns at the end of a freeplay event can be opened.

Be defeated while attempting to complete a world event in freeplay. Respawn in freeplay. Notice that the event is now gone. Move on and attempt to complete more world events in freeplay. Discover that the chests that spawn on completing additional world events cannot be opened.


I suspect this bug was introduced during the attempt to prevent 'double-looting' of defeated enemies if the player is defeated and respawns. The 'no loot allowed from chests' flag *never* expires during that freeplay session. This effectively forces the player to "end expedition" instead of respawning during free play in order to clear the bug.
