Can see another player's sheep discovery in fog

:arrow_forward: GAME INFORMATION

  • GAME BUILD #: 101.101.50700.0 7006804
  • OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 10

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

I got a map notification (not a ping) for an ally, or maybe an enemy, when they discover a sheep. Maybe related to discovering my own sheep at almost the same time.

:arrow_forward: FREQUENCY OF ISSUE

To be honest, not sure; this is the first time I’ve noticed it.

  • 25% of the time / matches I play (SOMETIMES)

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Start nomad
  2. Walk around and discover a sheep
  3. Have an ally discover a sheep at the same time
  4. Watch your map for a box in the fog signalling where their sheep is

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

You should only see the “new sheep here” box on the map for your own discoveries.

Hey @blastonguart
you probably uploaded a wrong recorded game, as this one is from year 2020, could you please upload the real game?

Whoops, replaced. Thanks

From what i can see, the box you saw was just a box that was made by the “x”/signalling from your opponent. That happens always, so this should not be a bug.
Have a nice day!

I just rewatched it from a few people’s point of view. I see that p5 did ping there. The bug, then, is that there was no X shown on the minimap!
