The game crashes when I play Burgundians and it’s registered as a loss in ranked games. I lost over 30 elo points because of this.

:point_down: How often does the issue occur? CHOSE ONE; DELETE THE REST!
*75% of the time / matches I play (OFTEN)
The game crashed three times out of four.

: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. Select single player or multiplayer
  2. Select Burgundians
  3. Wait for the game to crash

Maybe this is not a bug, but rather a well deserved nerf to an otherwise completely overpowered civ :wink:


Then I don’t mind but give me back my points then x) I lost over 30 elo because of crashes.

exact same problem here

Having the same issue with both civs. Play for around 20-25 minutes and they crash.

I Have the same issue here as well. Drops after 20 minutes or so.

So I tried to stream the Burgundian campaign to make my own “Historian reacts to…” but guess what? The game crashed twice and I couldn’t finish even the first scenario. This is really disappointing considering I paid ten bucks up front for this extention and was over the moon at the idea of playing Burgundians.

Please watch at 24:25 and 40:25

At the moment the game is technically and litteraly unplayable. Considering AoE2 is my go-to game in my busy life, it’s really cutting my fun short.

My game also sometimes crashes mid-game, but in singleplayer. I was playing Joan of Arc and maybe the fact that the Burgundians are present in the campaign gives the crash.

My game crashed twice using the burgundians, but i noticed it was while using the charge attack on the coustilier, second attempt without using that unit and it did not crash.

So yesterday I tried to play the Burgundians after the hotfix.

Multiplayer unranked against the AI went perfectly fine.

My game crashed, however, when I picked Burgundian in ranked 2v2. As soon as the match started AoE2 vanished from my screen. Access to recordings here: Match overview of AUTOMATCH - AoE2 Insights

Tonight I played the 1st Burgundian campaign scenario. I noticed a short freeze when the game ususally crashed around minute 20 but it carried on and I managed to finish the scenario. It was with great joy that I massacred the people of Liege.
