Building damage bugged in AoE1 Return of Rome

:arrow_forward: GAME INFORMATION

  • GAME BUILD #: 93001
  • OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 11

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

Attacks are doing more damage than they should to buildings in AoE: Return or Rome. The damage formula should be set so that the minimum damage against buildings is 0.1. In testing it seems to have been mistakenly changed to 1 in the new patch.

:arrow_forward: FREQUENCY OF ISSUE

The issue occurs in every game, has been tested by several players and can easily be verified in the map editor.

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

Shoot any tower or wall with a Bowman in an actual game or the editor.

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

The Bowman will do 1 damage per hit instead of the intended 0.1. If you check a Heavy Horse Archer (8 attack) against a building with 0 armour you will see that it does the correct damage of 1.6, so it seems that the issue is to do with the minimum damage section of the formula.

Yep, really big issue needs to be hotfixed asap!

I was the first victim of this bug today in the tournament :frowning: my towers and walls went down like paper

This is making the game not even playable. Hopefully they fixx it asap
