: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:
User reported steps are limited. From what I can gather

  1. Select logistician
  2. Go to imperial age with Portuguese

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

Pikemen should have a range limited to how long their pikes are

Not possessed.

This was added in the recent patch and is intended:

The Pikeman now gains +0.5 attack range with each direct unit upgrade.

I sincerely doubt it is supposed to reach this level. No melee unit should have that reach.

Please provide evidence of the pikes having 4 range.

This looks more like 1.5 range than 4 and the result or target lock/snare mechanics.

@vividlyplain , I’ll run some tests tonight and see if I can reproduce it.

Oh Nice… Macedons DLC.

Portuguese pikemen can have up to 4 range, which is excessive for a melee unit.

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

:arrow_forward: ############ STEPS

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Play as Portugal
  2. Age up to Age 2 with Logistician for +1 range to commerce age infantry, granting your pikemen +1 range, increasing the range to 3.0 instead of the normal 2.0 range
  3. Age up to Age 3 and research veteran pike. Note the 0.5 range listed in the veterancy upgrade is not granted (likely a different bug)
  4. Age to 4 with the papal guard. Research Guard pikemen and receive a +1 range, reaching 4 range Note this is different than the 0.5 range listed in the guard upgrade (likely a different bug)
  5. The imperial pikeman upgrade does not grant additional range, leaving a total of 4 range. Note the 0.5 range listed in the imperial upgrade is not granted (likely a different bug)

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

Pikemen should have a range limited to how long their pikes are.

Portuguese pikes gain +1 range with logi as it it a commerce age infantry.

Also, their upgrades give them +0.5 range with each age.

They start at 2, meaning 2+1+1.5 =4.5 range, ROUNDED down.

@vividlyplain I think this is working as intended.

Well I’ll still check with the designers if this is desirable or not. I’m just the map guy after all. Cheers.

w8 the biggest thing in there is pikeman starting with 2 range

that wasnt recorded in the patch notes iirc and might need some confirmation

Is it me or should their weapons get longer to reflect the change? Visually

Melee Units have 2 range, you just never see it IIRC
