:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

When idle villagers seek radius includes teammate’s town center, if teammate receives a shipment of resources, idle villagers will go collect teammate’s shipment. This results in angry teammate and unnecessary effort required to tribute the resources back.

This happens 100% of the games I play wherein I’m on a team and our town centers are placed nearby each other.

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

:question: List the DETAILED STEPS we can take to reproduce the issue… Be descriptive!

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Start a game on a team
  2. Position idle villagers near teammate’s town center
  3. Have teammate request shipment of wood, food, or gold and not collect it themselves when it arrives

Expected result: their shipment sits there until they collect it our you actively instruct your villagers to do so

Actual result: Theft, anger, apologies, name calling, tribute.

Yes, this issue is happening every game for me and friends. I had friends that didn’t even have villagers near my town center and they walked all the way to my base to gather my tribute faster than me sending my own settlers to gather it.

The resource gathering radius of villagers seems to be way too large. I just left a game because I couldn’t keep track of my villagers because they would walk a solid halfway across the map to collect a teammate’s resources for no reason. No point in playing if my villagers are going to suicide for something that isn’t even mine to start with.

Described as well here :

They’ve made the collection range stupidly large. I had a load of villagers get killed across several 1v1s since the patch because they finish the hunts and then go and walk towards the enemy’s Forward Base

You’re right, sorry for the duplicate.

To be clear, this is not just a radius problem. The radius is too big now, for sure. BUT… I am specifically referencing the theft from teammates TC shipments. These should never be considered, even within radius.

plus there is a problem with villager when they gathering Wood sometimes they are do nothing and stay there for no reason and didn’t work after they are finishing a wood resource
