Problem with "Baker Rifles" Shipment

:arrow_forward: GAME INFORMATION

  • GAME BUILD #: Build # 13.12015 (Public Update Preview)
  • OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 10

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED


Now, taking a look at the patch notes, the new shipment named “Baker Rifles” that gets activated after sending Age 4 shipment “Rangers” should provide, and I quote from directly the patch notes:

Replaces the Yeomen card in the deck when Roger’s Rangers has been researched; keeps the original effect of Yeomen and applies it to Rangers

However, as provided on the screenshot below, that is not the case. Just as it was before, the card gives Rangers +2 range, bringing them up to 20 (18+2) range instead. Looking at the card description, one might even think that it’s supposed to give +6 range instead. But since the patch notes say that it “keeps the original effect of Yeomen” (+4 range on Longbowmen) “and applies it to Rangers”, I assume the intended range increase is +4.

Note: Not sure if this is a bug or an issue with patch notes but neither “Ranger Combat” nor “Baker Rifles” shipments are available after researching the “Roger’s Rangers” tech on the church after sending the “Glorious Revolution” shipment from the home city. They both get activated only after sending the Age 4 Shipment “Rangers”.

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

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Go into any match with British selected and shipments “Yeomen” and “Rangers” in your deck.
  2. Age up to 4 and send the Rangers card
  3. After Rangers card arrives, send the renamed “Yeomen” shipment (It’s renamed to "Baker Rifles now)
  4. Train some Rangers from Barracks and take a look at their status.

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

Based on the patch notes, Rangers should get +4 range with Baker Rifles shipment instead, upgrading them to 22 (18+4) range.

I hope this is an intended design. Otherwise you’ll need a church card to buff these units and the age 4 cards only unlocks it.
In this way the age 4 card kinda also grants a buff because people would typically include the yeoman card.

“Baker Rifles”update just changes the discription and the icon,so this is not a bug

That is not how it is described in neither patch notes nor in the in-game “Baker Rifles” shipment tooltip.

Hello everyone. As listed in the card description in-game, Rangers gain 2.00 LOS and 2.00 Additional range. The stats changes that mention “Ranger” (+4 LOS, +4 Range) and not “Veteran Ranger” are applied to the old Longbowman Unit that was renamed to Ranger for technical reasons. This is working as intended :+1:

Alright then. Thanks for the answer.

The card description is confusing though, you might want to change that.
