:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

As I was playing a treaty game, I was selecting a lot of wall segments and I just clicked the “gate” button, as the game turned irresponsive. The game gave a “Connection lost. Attempting to reconnect…” popup, followed by “Connection lost. exiting game.”
In the meantime I could connect to YouTube when alt-tabbed, so my internet connection was still working. I have had lag spikes when deleting torps (to rebuild) and making gates before in previous treaty games, but never a connection loss.

After looking to my match history, my “win streak” went up by 1, but I believe the total wins remained at the same number. I also gained ELO, my rank increased.

If HeroineFather sees this, I am curious if the same occurred for you?

:point_down: How often does the issue occur? CHOSE ONE; DELETE THE REST!

  • Less than 25% of the time / matches I play (RARELY)
    I haven’t had any connection losses occur to me since the last patch.
    I can’t give the exact number on lag spikes when deleting torps / deleting wall pillars / making gates though.

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

:point_down: List CLEAR and DETAILED STEPS we can take to reproduce the issue ourselves… Be descriptive!

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Play treaty?
  2. Make a lot of gates at once.
  3. Game might crash?
  4. Free ELO?

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

:point_down: What was SUPPOSED to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?
Walls turn into gates, no lagspike and no crash / connection loss. If connection loss occurs, no win and ELO gain is granted.
