Tech Tree shows discounts for Civs without discounts (small bug)

Game Version:

  • Build: 37650
  • Platform: Steam
  • Operating System: Windows 10
  • Gamertag: Wiwi Clementine


The tech tree will show a discount to units where it shouldn’t. It seems to be controlled by the civilization that you last played as. For example, the Malay have cheaper Battle Elephants so if you play as the them the tech tree will show that discount (as intended) but switching the civilization in the drop down menu doesn’t make the bonus go away. The issue STILL persists after your game is over though until you start a game with a different civ. Simply end a game, then go to the tech tree in the single player menu and you’ll see the incorrect bonus information from your last game.

Reproduction Steps:

Here’s how to reproduce the problem:

  1. Play a game as a civ with a cheaper unit bonus. Mayans cheaper archers is the example in the screenshot.
  2. Resign and quit the game to the main menu.
  3. Head over to a tech tree (in any menu, single player match creation menu is easiest).
  4. Look at the cost of that discounted unit now that the game is over. You can change the civ in the menu all you’d like but the listed price remains at a discount.
