[MERGED] Ranked Random map Game Crashes when tech tree is opened

Same here, no MOD installed

Kinda similar behaviour when you have the tech tree open when the host is readying up in a lobby with mods (where you get the confirmation message to download the mod)… also breaks the game. Crash report here:

So looks like there should not be any interruption when being in the civ selector, otherwise you can restart

Same issue here, every time.

I have the same issue, so do many friends I paly with. Started happening since anniversary update

Duplicate to this

I have this bag too. Started since anniversary update 17 nov 2020 :flushed:

Same here. When waiting the matchmaking for tg the player exploring civs crashes to desktop and the rest have to do Alt-f4 to close the game cuz nothing works

Happens everytime. This and the laggy late Game is the upset of this patch.

Same here. The game is crashing during matchmaking with an open Tech Tree as soon as there is a game started.

In addition to this, i experience strange crashes to the desktop in 1vs1 :frowning:

Same here. The game crashes with an open Tech Tree as soon as there is a game found. Also since November Update.

Happened to me as well, I was not aware it would happen consistently, thank you for reporting.

Just for everyone on this thread (since it did not get merged with the other thread yet…):
They are at least aware of it:

In multiplayer menu, during matchmaking in a party, when match is found while viewing tech tree, game completely crashes. This problem constantly happens and we experienced this on both Steam and Microsoft Store version.

Works good so far. Two games and no crashes despite tech tree being open.

The game has a weird transition when it starts.
Usually there’s a smooth animation into the starting screen with TC.
Now its more like the loading screen blacks out and the starting screen just pops up out of nowhere.
