:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

When entering a custom game scenario with units and buildings spawned in. cannot choose colors properly. (ie when players 1 and 2 in lobby player can only pick red and blue) colors are locked to slots unit another player joins, There reason I’m putting this here is because i think it is linked to why the game is crashing immediately after everyone clicks ready and starts the match.

Also worth note we had no such issues before the July 7th patch
