:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED


This bug has happened consistently. This bug occurs when playing as China in Single Player against an AI on any difficulty. Sentries and Irregulars do not spawn after the “Boxer Rebellion” card is shipped from the Home City. They can be trained but no units will spawn.

After shipping the “Boxer Rebellion” card, shipping the “Village Defenses” card, which enables the training of Sentries and Irregulars from Chinese Villages, will result in the same outcome. Sentries and Irregulars can be trained at Villages, but no units will be spawn from them either.

(Sentries and Irregulars can be trained successfully at villages from the “Village Defenses” card, only if “Boxer Rebellion” has not yet arrived from the Home City.)
