:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

It’s very frustrating when playing with friends against the computer to have one ally ai activate the trade victory in the very best of the match, when you are breaking the enemy defenses to destroy all of their bases. We always are forced to delete or own trade posts, but sometimes thats not enough to stop the count and even if it is, the ally might just take one of the trade posts and activate it again.

It really is very bad as we don’t want to play classic mode without the trade vitctory, we like that if the enemy ai team have a better map control or more TPs, they can do use it to pressure us into focusing on them, but the ally AI should never be able to activate it, that decisions should only be made by the human players in each team. It would improve a lot the experience of playing with ai allies.

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

  • 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. Play a game with team allies
  2. make sure they have a tp and control half of them
  3. ally will activate the victory almost every game, specially in the best moments.

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

:point_down: What was SUPPOSED to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?
That decision should only be made by the human player in every team, if not human in a team, allow the ai to use it.

:arrow_forward: IMAGE

:point_down: ALWAYS attach a PICTURE (.jpg, .png, .gif) or VIDEO (.mp4, YouTube link) that highlights the problem.

:arrow_forward: GAME FILES (SAVE / RECORDING)

:point_down: Attach a SAVE GAME (.aoe3Ysav) or GAME RECORDING (.aoe3Yrec) of the match where you encountered the issue. Link it below if using an external file service.

I agree, I also find this annoying.

I also find it annoying, but that´s why i put “Classic” mode before the fight, you surely have “Standard” on, so in Classic is the same as Standard but without the trade monopoly victory, it is not allowed.

What I do is to delete one of my trading posts and start building another one but never finish it .

Fron my post:

We know about classic mode, we want to play with standard rules but having the option only be available to the humans on each team.

Thats a good way too, but you miss on the trade route or on natives

Ahh sorry i didn´t saw it.

Hi guys!

Unfortunately we cannot add that option. If you want a game without Trade Monopoly Victory I recommend you to play Classic mode.

Thanks for your suggestion!
