:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

(happens on both my computers) I main the United States at the moment so I play them practically exclusively recently. As the title suggests, every time I close the game with US as the displayed homecity the next time I boot up AoE3DE, the home city is some random civ that isn’t the US. This happens only with US, all other homecities stay whenever opening the game.

Usually I don’t mind because it is just the main screen, except it isn’t. It is also the civ auto-selected when you lobby up for a match, having to change my civ to US every time I open the game (which is every match since I found that restarting the game for every match reduces the chance for lag/crashes/disconnects considerably).

It may just be my computers or steam account (I looked for a thread talking about this before posting and didn’t find anything about this issue).
It has caused me to play some matches with the wrong civ when I wasn’t paying enough attention.
