So I opened up AOE 2 to finish up the last challenge, and sure enough it had reset all of my progress. Not sure why. My son had lost progress on one of the challenges last year but we thought it was a one off. Now I’m thinking the devs may have an issue. Does anyone know why this happens, and is there any way to get the progress back. The challenges aren’t too tough, but they’ve got a delay so I can’t just get back to where I left off by playing … at least not without waiting several days. It’s looking like I’ll have to do it all again to get the items.
Yep AaryneGenD, I logged back in again just now, and it had reset my progress yet again.
In the last challenge, my son completed the challenge which gave him the snowmen for swordsmen mod. He was pretty excited. Then he logged back in the next day and it was gone. They’ve clearly got issues storing progress. Very strange since everything should be connected via xbox.
That’s EXACTLY the same issue with me. Even the same challenge where the progress was lost. I was about to get the last reward but I just noticed I have to replay every single one again. I didn’t lose any reward, I still have them but I don’t want to play the 5 challneges just to get the last reward.
Hopefully they fix that soon!
thought i’d echo this issue, I was hoping to get one of the later prizes, but I really dont feel like doing them all over again. Besides, after achieving one of them, a timer appears before I can start the next one. I believe its for 16hrs I think. Yeah I’m not gonna standby for 16hrs…
These details are CRITICAL; DO NOT skip them or your issue may not be reviewed.
GAME BUILD #: current one

OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 10
DESCRIBE THE ISSUE IN DETAIL (below). LIMIT TO ONE BUG PER THREAD.
I already finished the time limited event (“win a game as japanese or…”) completely. But since today it shows like I have never touched a single challenge. This is wierd, but since I already have all the Icons, and they are still here to be chosen from, not that big of a deal.
This topic migth be pretty much related, with people who have not yet finished and have to start all over again in order to get the icons and mods:
This is not the first time we see this bug. It already occured the first time when a event got more time on it due to a lot of people unable to start the game after a patch. So this bug will happen to everyone who has at least played a single challenge, so dont worry, its not your fault if this happens.
FREQUENCY OF ISSUE
How often does the issue occur? CHOSE ONE; DELETE THE REST!
100% of the time / matches I play (ALWAYS)
List CLEAR and DETAILED STEPS we can take to reproduce the issue ourselves… Be descriptive!
Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:
Got a challenge before Feb 8
Log in on Feb 9
Wonder why your progres (on the event) is lost
What was SUPPOSED to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?
I expect every patch to be playable for everyone. So this would not even occur and thats basically what a paying customer expects.
If thats not able at least the progres should be saved, so people do not have to start all over again.
If thats also not possible due to whatever: At least tell people about the longer time they now have and that their progres migth be lost, also tell them WHY this has to be done (“We admit there are a lot of issues in the current patch… Several people are unable to play atm, so we decided to give them another chance on the Event. Therefore we try to get the timer somehow delayed, this migth cause some issues with saving your progress…”). This does not have to be done in the forum or on any of the 100 different aoe2 related pages that are out there. This should be in the game itself (news section, or that annoying thing that sometimes pops up (I believe its part of news section as well… not sure tho)), since it affects everyone
ALWAYS attach a PICTURE (.jpg, .png, .gif) or VIDEO (.mp4, YouTube link) that highlights the problem.
no image needed. If you need one comment here then I can upload one. But since this is a so well known bug its not needed imho.
GAME FILES (SAVE / RECORDING)
Attach a SAVE GAME (.aoe2spgame) or GAME RECORDING (.aoe2record) of the match where you encountered the issue. Link it below if using an external file service.
I saw it too. I understand that gameplay-wise, the 20-year-old codebase could be bug-prone. But the mods resub thing and now this, and previously event progress not unlocked if you review the map after the game… I’m speechless
But that one is fixed isnt it?
Well its kinda sad, but lets be honest: its just that event thing… should not really be a big issue imho. But worth mentioning, basically just so people who see it the first time can have an explanation on whats going on
