Transport Ships unload units Bug

:arrow_forward: GAME INFORMATION

  • GAME BUILD #: 11375994
  • OPERATING SYSTEM: Windows 11

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

It’s becoming very hard to unload units from transport ships, units only unload 1 by 1 (or sometimes 2 by 2), but then it says there is not enough room (whereas compared to usually, there’s clearly enough space for everybody)

: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. Make a transport ship
  2. Fill it with units
    3.Try to unload all units on land

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

All the units should be able to be unloaded of the transport ship at once


Hi @EhBahSuper
The team is already aware of some issues with transport ships.
Thanks for your report.


Good day,

This bug also makes some missions impossible (i.e. The Battle of Guadalete) as the transport ship unload doesn’t complete properly => player doesn’t get control over constructors => no new mission tasks are prompted


This bug will affect a few campaign scenarios :frowning: Sorry about the inconvenience.

I noticed this too, William Wallace never came to my aid :frowning:


This bug also affects two trigger effects: Unload and Task Object (with Unload as the Action Type).
From a bit of testing, it seems that the Unload effect works sometimes (at least with 5 units aboard), while the Task Object effect only unloads 1-3 of the units every time.

Fixing this bug ASAP should be a top priority, it ruins so many official and custom scenarios.

Came here to write a report about this.

I’m now wishing that we had the ability to rollback patches in steam.


least til the many bugs are fixed, the mid game crashing and transport bugs have been a pain in the ass the past few days, never know when im gonna lose an hour+ of work on something cuz of a random crash point, and I just skip most things that involve transporting units like nah… I could dessimate you but im gonna go for the wonder win on my island cuz that will be less painful timewise compared to trying to micro manage landing an army one unit at a time

This is clearly a regression that came with latest patch. Why are patches not flighted to avoid wide spread of a bug like this one? Why not immediately rolling back the patch?


I’m experiencing this bug too. Cant complete some campaigns

Played age of empires for years, this bug is one of the worst i have experienced.

It is somewhat reassuring in a way to see a forum thread dedicated to this issue as it means i’m not the only one experiencing it.

The only workaround is to click each individual unit off the transports. Trying to complete a level like Slaying the Vritra is almost impossible.


It breaks any level where the AI has to land forces (mostly for cutscene purposes, sometimes for actual gameplay). It really sucks, to the point that I feel like this hotfix should’ve been rolled back immeadiately.

Please fix the bug ASAP, you cannot even progress half the scenarios due to bug. Do you have an ETA on the fix?

still, please someone can fix that?
the transport drops the units one by one, is unplayed when u need to do it

This is pretty much the worst bug I’ve ever experienced in AoE 2. Any updates regarding the fix? Seems like this has been an issue for almost a week now.

IF we are lucky, a fix might be in next PUP, therefore, universally patched in late June. If we are unlucky, it’s not coming until mid-late July or even worse

It makes establishing a beachhead in Sunjata 5 impossible.

Indeed, this is affecting many campaign scenarios.
