:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

When a player ages up (either me or the opponent), my game freezes or lags. This happens not when I click up, but when the new age starts being research. From dark age to Feudal age the game lags for 5-10 seconds. From Feudal age to Castle age the game freezes for over a minute (in my last game, the game lags from minute 00.18.55 to min 00.20.00). Going from castle age to imperial the game also lags 20-30 seconds.
It happens mostly when the first player ages up (whoever that is), and not as much when the second does.
The forum does not allow me to upload a recording because I am a fairly new user. I don’t know if you have access to my games somehow. If so, try scrolling up and down when I age up so you can feel the lag. It is much worse in real life than in the recording. I can’t give any orders so I just have to pull all vills if I am being pressured because there is no way I can micro anything for OVER 1 MINUTE!.
