:point_down: These details are CRITICAL; DO NOT skip them or your issue may not be reviewed.

  • GAME BUILD #: 13.38085
  • OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 10

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

:point_down: AI France, on extreme difficulty does nothing after it revolts to the French Revolution. The sans-culottes literally do nothing. The AI treats them only as infantry, and will stand there for the remaining time on a treaty, and if it is your ally, he will try to surrender because for almost a half hour, they have gathered no resources, haven’t trained troops, and haven’t even built a barracks yet. This means you effectively have no ally, or if you’re doing 1 player vs 2 AIs, you’re actually only facing 1 AI, as France will literally do nothing.

:arrow_forward: FREQUENCY OF ISSUE


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

: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. Make any match with France as the AI, set to extreme.
  2. Add a long treaty, about 30 minutes at least.
  3. It will happen. After the sans-culottes are gone, they will train revolutionaries, if they have food or a factory.

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

:point_down: France plays like it did from October 2020 till the October 2022 update. They’re effectively not able to used by anyone, except players.

: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: No recorded games as it is happens every single time the AI controls France.


Aw cool, you guys saw it, thank you. Sorry to bring it up, but I remembered the issue suddenly while I was playing, and got a still photo of it so I could do the bug report. Thank you!

Also, the temporal blockade card affects to allies too, not just enemies

Seems historically correct that it does that though :sweat_smile:

Woah, that’s bad, the tooltip doesn’t say that, does it?

Lol I love that, I actually love that reply because like, yes. Revolution kinda lost steam and got co-opted by Napoleon, so the sans-culottes becoming worthless is like almost an Easter egg.

Good to see France STILL doesn’t work.
