first of all, english is not my native language so excuse the mistakes in the following text.
Today, someone in my alliance chat stated, that he had zero chest spawns while vanquishing Maishang Hills. I was answering in alliance chat that this is just impossbile. A map of this size has to have chests. After some minutes of discussion we both were still defending our statements. I am sure, maps of this size have chests. Especially Maishang Hills has some nice corners with pop-up spawns where chests often occur. Maybe he just missed these chests. Additionally, i do also miss chests sometimes and just see them when i am right next to them.
I know many people here run chests daily. I do also love to run chests in Pongmei Valley and i know i will always have between 3 and 5 (never had 6 so i am sure 5 is max for Pongmei Valley) chest spawns. Shadow's Passage is always one chest (not 100% sure).
Coming to the big question of all of this: Is it possible to have zero chests on a map like Maishang Hills? Which parameters have to be fulfilled to have at least one chest on a map (never saw a chest spawn on Saoshang Trail).
Regarding the second question i am somehow sure that there has to be a minimal distance between the portal where you enter a map and the first possible chest spawn.
