The glitch is when combat is still ongoing, but before you kill the last enemy - combat ends all the chests start appearing. Because combat is still not over you cannot move or act typically all the chests disappear by the time you do get to move.
Normally I would not complain too much about this because it has only happened on the lower floors and none of the important battles. But a few nights ago it happened to my group at the final battle with Moo. We had just beaten his last minion and were about to blast him when suddenly all the chests started to pop up during combat. We were forced to sit and watch as two more attacks were done to an invisible Moo, during which all our chests vanished. All that time and effort for the few trinkets we had earned floors lower.

Just thought this should be brought to someones attention and also to see...

Has this happened to anyone else?

Yes it has happened to me a couple of times also. I kept forgetting to report it in the flurry of figuring out how to empty a full backpack with a maxed gold level.

yeah, but its usually with the pig fights. Also, it doesn't last that long when it happens for me

I have heard that this happens when one of the players is using a 'speed hack' on their computer. This speeds up the battle in the game.

Same answers as above poster, my companions: Inoshishi Necromancer and the buccaneer Bear. I don't remember what companions the team were using, sorry. If it happens again I will try to take note.

They say a closed mouth doesn't get fed. I've had this bug happen to me before, but I'm like 94.87% sure that it has happened in other dungeons as well; I don't remember which. Though it didn't last for so long that it kept me from getting chests (or I guess only 1-3 chests vanish).

There's a few bugs that I notice, but my first thought is not really to report it because: I think I'm the only one, I'd try to find a loophole in the glitch, or I would just take a break and try again later.

Hey Anne, by the way there is something identical to this glitch that has happened twice or thrice to me.
Basically I finish the first one and the rest of the pirates don't move (happened in the first floors), I assumed they would be still in battle.
I also thought it would have to do with their internet connection but until yesterday, for the first time, when the same glitch you guys are talking about happened! I have almost the same info as #ShamanBond except it was a group of 3 players, it happened in the 10th floor as well, and I had The Marchioness and Emmett in battle.

Ooooh rats. Not sure I can remember. My usual go to companions on that floor are Fan and Hawkules if they have survived the floor below. If not those two, El Toro and Bonnie.

And/or some combination of those four are who I had with me.....I think. <------- (Deer in headlights impersonation)

Hope that kinda helps.
