:arrow_forward: GAME INFORMATION

  • GAME BUILD #: v. 100.12.43871.0
  • OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 10

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

Team Cheap Church Card, when sent, does not reduce the cost of non-unique church upgrades.

:arrow_forward: FREQUENCY OF ISSUE

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

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Play 1v1 Skirmish or Multiplayer as the French with the Team Cheap Church Card in the deck.
  2. Send the card.
  3. Build a church. (The church’s cost is correctly reduced to 30 wood).
  4. Check the costs of Church Techs (non-unique techs, such as Town Watch, Gas Lighting, etc.).

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

Church upgrades such as Town Watch, Gas Lighting, Mercantilism, Standing Army, Mass Cavalry have their costs reduced by 50%.

In game description of Team Cheap Church Card:

In game situation where the Team Cheap Church Card has been sent but the cost of the non-unique Church upgrades remains the same.

Hi @FaintestBeast85 !

Thank you for your detailed report! We’re already tracking this issue :hugs:


@IkoKnight8151 As per the latest update, why have Bastions and Mercantilism costs not reduced to accordingly? Right now, the card seems so underwhelming, it just looks like a waste of space for an Age 2 card in a French player’s deck.

you should make PUP have multiplayer lobby so we can really test it

It does have it
20 characters

no, ive never have found any player on PUP

You can’t play with people nor see lobbies on other version of the game, but if you create a lobby and invite someone with the pup, you can play Mp with them. It would be nice if people that try it when it becomes available could coordinate to play online together

The reason for that is basically no one uses the multiplayer in the beta, so no one hosts lobbies and therefore no one joins

but can i create a lobby and then invite a friend sending the id of the match?

if your friends is also on the beta then yeah it works
