Deeds of the Father: No tributes when Player 5 destroys buildings

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED


On Deeds of the Father you can destroy a tower in Player 6’s villages to make them pay tribute to you.

However, if you have ships near Player 6’s buildings and Player 5 raids your coast, kills your ships, it will then turn on Player 6 and destroy its buildings.

Fine, it says I need to defend them.

However, I did not understand what was happening because the text says “Because YOU destroyed one of their buildings they will no longer pay tribute to you.”

  • 100% of the time / matches I play (ALWAYS)

:arrow_forward: ############ 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 Deeds of the Father
  2. Destroy a tower in a Player 6 village
  3. Leave only one ship, such as a fishing boat, next to a Player 6 building
  4. Be raided by Player 5 (Or Player 7, presumably)
  5. Your ship is destroyed
  6. AI targets Player 6 building
  7. See confusing alert

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

:point_down: What was SUPPOSED to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?

At the very least, the text should be changed to indicate that a building was destroyed, not necessarily by you.

e.g. “Because you let a building be razed …”

But since neither of these players actually target Player 6 without the human player effectively baiting them into doing so, I would expect that to always be the case, not just when Player 5 (and 7?) don’t have anything of yours to destroy.

e.g. Player 5 (and 7?) are allied with Player 6.

:arrow_forward: IMAGE

:point_down: ALWAYS attach a PICTURE (.jpg, .png, .gif) or VIDEO (.mp4, YouTube link) that highlights the problem.


:arrow_forward: GAME FILES (SAVE / RECORDING)

:point_down: 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.

  • It would not let me upload the save, so I put it on mega: here.
