Winter Wonderland, empty loot chest.
You might want to edit out his name. No naming and shaming on the forums; you can always report privately, but this and other MMO game companies do not allow what can easily become witch hunts.
I just had the same thing happen and didn’t receive anything in the end chest. I could open the chest, but nothing was rewarded. It only happened one time for me though.
I got the same thing happen to me just 20 minutes ago. Very frustrating tbh.
First run for the day. Empty chest. Seems there’s a different bug every day. They are all extremely annoying.
i just did my first run for today and got nothing from the chest too
I just finished the JP 2 hours ago and opened an empty chest, what a waste of time.
Same. Did it once, no loot. Did it again, got tree giant present. A guildie just did it after me, he got full reward.
Same thing just happened to me today. First run got nothing from the chest. Second run I got the 3 presents.
Today and once last week (~19th) I also received no loot when I finished the JP. Like the others I didn’t even receive the 3 gifts. In both cases I finished the JP from “yesterday” slightly before the daily reset (around 2pm PST) and then again shortly after the daily reset. (around 430pm PST) In both cases, the completion made after the daily reset resulted in an empty chest.
It’s pretty frustrating this issue seems to have been going on for the entire Wintersday event.
I wonder if it’s their anti-botting code that’s messing up. It was doing that earlier in the event when people would get booted straight to Lion’s Arch or the waiting platform after jumping into the giant present at the end of the puzzle.
Odd it seems random when I get the daily chest rewards or not.
How ever. Both the times I did finish the jumping puzzle. I managed to finish it quicker than one would be expected to finish by narrowly dodging boulders and such to get there quicker.
Perhaps that has some thing to do with it? Because I did the jumping puzzle today at a normal pace and got my rewards as intended.
Same here. Empty chest from JP on first try… second time normal 3 giant gifts.
Still reading this? You know there is something better to be done for sure. -.-’’
This happened to me once before christmas (and before the jp fix patch I believe) but not since then. I don’t think the jumping speed has anything to do with it. I have jumped it both fast and slow and noticed no difference.
It seems like this is a common problem and Anet couldnt care less….
This happened to me yesterday as well.

Just happened to me. Nothing out of the chest.
Happened to me just now -_-
just happened to me also, so lame
Just happened to me … it’s the bug of the day!
Finally had this happen to me, after never having an issue and running the puzzle everyday. Will do it again and see if I get the same result.
Edit: Just 3 Wintersday gifts now, bleh.

Happened just now. My last daily failed. GG :/
This has happened to me three times now on various days, and again today. The worst part is it counts as your daily so you don’t get the bonus rewards. I’ve done runs after the empty chest run and only get 3 gifts. It’s annoying enough to come here and add to the post (I normally don’t complain and generally enjoy the game all the time).
Yeah nothing today. It’s pretty buggy being so inconsistent with who it hits and how many times they get hit throughout the event.
Happened to me 3 times I think.
first time 5 minutes into new day, second time a bit later. Third time a few hours into the new day (all of them in the night).
Whenever I did it in the afternoon it was ok.
Also I remember a few people entering after me and they got an empty chest too so its not so rare and its systematic.
Nice holidays from arenanet I guess.
