Saving and restoring multiplayer game: wrong civilization


Yesterday I was playing with a friend, the multiplayer server continued to show a lot of lag.
I decided to save the multiplayer game, and restore it.
The settings were restored correctly, with the other player being shown as the correct civilization. However, as soon as this person joined the lobby again, the civilization changed to random.
I have tried this multiple times with the same result.

Hi @airkeukenrol, Are you experiencing this issue with Age of Empires: Definitive Edition, Age of Empires II: Definitive Edition or another Age game?

Hi, I am having this with Age Of Empires 2 Definitve Edition on steam.

Once the game starts, the correct civilizations are shown?
In the lobby it always showed wrong civs and colors for me, but upon entering the game again those would be fixed.
I saw this in the HD edition too, so it’s sort of a legacy issue.
