:arrow_forward: GAME INFORMATION

  • GAME BUILD #: 13.690

The battleship and privateer units are not affected by the mercenary contractor age-up. All other upgrades and shipments affect them.

:arrow_forward: FREQUENCY OF ISSUE

  • 100% of the time / matches I play (ALWAYS)

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Ship the battleship and/or privateers from the home city
  2. Age up to Imperial with mercenary contractor
  3. Observe the ship stats do not change after ageing up

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

The merc ships should be impacted identically to land merc units, allowing the units to continue to be impactful in Age 5.

Hello @stephensundin , thanks for your report. The Warship provided by the Rule Britannia card does not receive Mercenary buffs by design. This is intended. :+1:

They do have the mercenary tag though so might be a good design change to just remove that tag from it. I can see it becoming a problem in the future

They have mercenary tag and should be buffed, please check the buggy code.

Hello everyone, we’re looking into ways we can buff the unit. :+1:
