Donjon foundation prevents defeat

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

A Sicilian opponent lost all his units and buildings but didn’t get defeated.
I’ve researched Spies and scouted the map in detail. My friend joined to spectate that game and found the enemy had Donjon foundation and refused to resign. I went to go get groceries, cook lunch etc. and returned after 10 hours. The player was still there waiting for me to give it up.
If it’s possible to ban him or something, I’d appreciate it. Replay as evidence is attached.
He is very toxic to the community and abuses the bug, thank you.

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

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. A Sicilian player places a Donjon foundation.
  2. He can never be defeated, even though the player lost all units and buildings (including palisades, walls… as long as the Donjon foundation (1 hp = invisible and indestructable by the other player) exists.

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

If the bug didn’t occur I’d get victory screen.

If you place some building on the foundation and start building it, the enemy foundation is removed. It is not a fix for the bug, but a solution to your opponent.

Any building may work, if it even slightly overlaps with the Donjon foundation.

I tried that. My friend spectated exactly where the foundation is and sent me screenshot. I tried building Market over it, I fired there with siege onagers… none worked.

Interesting. I will try the recording then.
