:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED


Seems like AI always goes for Ethiopians despite choosing random Civs. I do not know if this is a known bug? I will try to refresh and try again. Last 3 games I’ve faced up Ethiopians. 3 points make a line so I made this post.

:arrow_forward: FREQUENCY OF ISSUE

:point_down: How often does the issue occur? CHOSE ONE; DELETE THE REST!

  • 50% of the time / matches I play (FREQUENTLY)

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Start AOE3, request to play Skirmish
  2. Queue up with Random civilization for yourself and the AI (Hard).
  3. You get random Civs and AI is almost always Ethiopians!!

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

:point_down: What was SUPPOSED to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?
Random Civs on both players!

trying to do challenges i play some skirmishes and i can tell you its still a random civ, in the last 10-15 games i had atleast 6 or 7 different civs

Maybe just coincidence that 3 games went with Ethiopians? Perhaps, what are the odds of that!

Will be interesting for the devs to calculate the probability of that LOL :smiley:

1/x^3, where x - amount of possible civs
right now we have 20? 21 civs, so 1 in 8000 chance, something around that

Hi @VocalUnicycle08!

We couldn’t reproduce this on our side, it is possible that it was just a coincidence. However we will pay attention to this. Thanks!
