It looks like there are people saying this is not a bug, but a feature. I think this is a bug because there are random and full random options. Or at least, this is counter-intuitive. A team with two or more players with the same civ is in disadvantage
Random civ not working as expected.
I was expecting random civ to ensure an unique civ (without repetition), even counting payers picking a specific civ.
However, I picked particular civ (Mayans) , teammate picked random civ (NOT full random). The result, we both were mayans. (ranked random map).
I don’t know if random civ can also pick the same as an enemy with a particular civ.
What is expected by me:
Random should ensure the civ is not repeated. In particular within the same team.
Full random should pick any civ, no matter if it repeates or not.
FREQUENCY OF ISSUE
I have seen it occur only one time. I can’t know if it happens everytime or sometimes as there is a random component in this.
I have seen an enemy team with a civ repeated, now I’m thinking the same thing happened to them.
I can’t ensure this will reproduce the issue, I guess one should try and try and try and with enought luck, random will repeate a civ.
Here’s the steps I remember that lead to two players with mayans:
- Enter ranked game
- Invite your friends to the party.
- One of you should choose a civ. (Mayans?)
- Another one pick random
- Click on find match
- Wait, and maybe, sometimes, the random player gets the save civ as a teammate.
