Palisade Foundation spawn Bug - Game Breaking

:arrow_forward: GAME INFORMATION

:point_down: These details are CRITICAL; DO NOT skip them or your issue may not be reviewed.

  • GAME BUILD #: 8160343
  • GAME PLATFORM: Steam/Microsoft Store
  • OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 10 but probably any OS

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

Placing palisade foundations around a military building, without actually building them will still make the enemy units spawn glitched inside the building. There is no consistent way to free them except deleting the production building. The glitch works every time.
No need to explain that if abused by a player competent enough, there will no way to beat him without using the same glitch.

:arrow_forward: FREQUENCY OF ISSUE

  • 100% of the time / matches I play (ALWAYS)

: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. Place palisades all around an enemy building, without actually building them
  2. ???
  3. profit

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

The units should spawn normally regardless of placed palisade foundations.

Please devs, fix it before people destroy the matchmaking by abusing it… it’s comparable to the old lithuanian relic bug in the damage it can do, but more subtle (you could think it’s just a DE bug instead of a glitch done by the other player the first time you encounter it).

This is a feature, not a bug.
