  • Sometimes when I join a ranked 1v1 game the civ I select is not the one I go into game with. I don’t know what I’m doing to cause this bug. I have the civ already selected long before the game starts.

  • Less than 25% of the time / matches I play (RARELY)

Attached link to the game I played. I was Cumans instead of Byzantines.

your opponent enable the random civ game and half of the chance you will enter a random civ game

I thought this works if only the majority of players select the random civ option. I never have this on, so shouldn’t I not get matched this way?

If half of people in the quene enable this option, sometime it happen. I keep encountering it in 4v4 game and I believe this is also true in 1v1 game
