Hello there, with this topic I am only trying to help you identify bugs in game and hopefully, you can solve them, but also to criticize your team’s work, because it started to be really annoying. I will also provide the reproduction steps.


1. Ranked Queue blocks UI after it finds match and fails to start the match. This bug only happened once, and never before. But how could such a undeterministic bug appears, for such a simple task.

2. Sometimes, my friends are NOT receiving any of my invitations, even though I sent them one and they have to exit the game and re-enter it.

3. I could not invite a friend into my lobby because he is not online, but he is. And sometimes, I can invite him even though he is not online.

– Nice to have –
4. After entering the ranked lobby and I click technology tree, I have to reselect my civ again. This user use-case is different for normal lobbies, because there, after you select a civ, you will have your preselected civ into the technology tree.

5. I cannot see players rating sometimes, when i move the cursor on their icon.

About the gameplay itself, I think you did a great job, I really think, and everything works just fine in the game, from my side! But when we talk about those UI bugs, I am completely dissapointed, maybe the teams are different, but how could a microsoft team develop a product that have such UI bugs in 2020 ? From such a simple tasks like : “Sending an invitation” , “Return to lobby” and “Is user online?”. Maybe those are known bugs, maybe im being a ■■■■, but it’s frustrating coming from Microsoft, and I think maybe you should really have a talk with some of your developers.

Thanks, in advance.

Reproduction Steps:

Here’s how to reproduce the problem:

1. Ranked -> Find Match -> Enters Ranked Lobby -> Fails to start match -> UI Completely frozen ( I had to restart the game )
2,3. Invite -> Does not received any
4. Ranked -> Select civ -> Techonology tree -> Does not appear the preselected civ
5. Move cursor to player’s icon
