Guaranteed flying keys not being awarded

I have wasted around 20 Legends of Hogwarts Runestones doing Fortress Chambers today during Community day where it is supposed to award a Flying Key Foundable guaranteed but awards nothing. I want my runestones back Niantic. I need these to complete pages by collecting other Legends of Hogwarts Wizarding Challenge foundables but during community day you turn these off so not only am I not receiving what is supposed to be guaranteed (and I don’t need except to complete the stupid task of collect 8) but I can’t collect anything else either. Sort it out!

    I've just tried my first fortress of the community day, and despite it showing a winged key would be the reward, all I got was a shield fragment, no guaranteed winged key fragment - this was in tower v - have they forgotten to mention it's certain levels and above?

    @Bazmadoodah @dekovite it is the same as with every other CD, you are guaranteed a flying key foundable IF you get a drop (so no other fragment will drop). You are confusing this with drop rate, the drop rates are the same as usual for ruins 1 to forest 3, so you can still have no fragment drop in those chambers. There is a 100% drop rate from forest4+ for the event.

    I have used 3 Legends of Hogwarts runestones on 3 different chambers and have not gotten the guaranteed Flying Key yet.

    The wording in the in game news article is "Guaranteed Flying Key from Wizarding Chambers when using Legends of Hogwarts Runestones" - that doesn't specify that it has to be from a specific chamber onwards, but then I'm sure it's expected based on the usual event wording of increased specific traces from Tonics that often don't appear to be.

    Same, I used 6+ level 2 and 3 runes with ZERO flying keys as a reward. EVERY event it seems much harder to complete the tasks at hand then when there is no event at all! I ALWAYS get multiple specific foundables during events that spawn then when I complete that page of tasks and said foundable is now needed they rarely pop up. It's not fun to play when the computer puts you at a disadvantage purposely!

    @Kitzen , i just tested your theory using a level 4 rune in forest v, still NOTHING. Im out 10 runes with ZERO flying keys. That is and award rate of 0/10 which is NOT 1/3. Maybe there is a bug for android users for this and not ios. Im android.

    The fragment is only guaranteed in Forest 4 and above.

    @RavenAbernathy I'm on Android, and I've gotten a flying key for every battle I've done in Forest 4 and above using a Legends of Hogwarts runestone.

    @dekovite The SOS report in the game says guaranteed drops from Forest chamber IV and above.

    I just did 2 fortress levels 4 with the correct runes tone and no flying key. This is ridiculous.

    I just did forest 5 twice and got one chess queen and one potions book, I need 2 more winged keys to complete.
