Converted mangonels turn into onagers

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

I was playing some arena with a friend of mine. I had researched onager myself and I converted a pair of my opponents mangonels. They shortly turned into onagers at the same time as I researched block printing, not sure if that’s relevant. In the clip the sprites look like mangonels but stats are of onagers. The sprite changes when I give them move commands later on. Couldn’t replicate it on editor.

:arrow_forward: FREQUENCY OF ISSUE

Not sure how frequently this happens. Encountered it for the 1st time today.

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Get onager and redemption upgrades
  2. Convert a mangonel
  3. Research block printing(?)

The most interesting I see here is that the look of the Mangonels stays the same while the description turns into “Onagers” :smiley:

Also the shots are still Mangonel shots, so actually only their description changed while the “real” properties are staying the same.


Hi @Algamies !

Sorry for the delay. We are now tracking this issue!

This has been the case since AoK I guess, but surely it was present in HD.
