Hi @Victotem
I tried to download the rec you uploaded but I don’t have access. Were these men at arms like 4 tiles away from the TC?
I informed the team about this issue.
Thanks for your report.

They were in the forest with the wood campamment on fire. I am trying to share it with OneDrive now: MP Replay v101.102.24724.0 #(90260) @2023.09.03 223546 (2).aoe2record

This is still happening. M@A in defensive stance placed at a reasonable distance from the TC (4-5 tiles or even more, like guarding enemy’s main gold) follow enemy vills or troops and get lured under TC fire

In this game it happens at minute 13:20, lured by scout, and at minute 18:00 lured by archers.
It is a frequent issues if you use M@A, please fix it!
