:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

Since the last update, units will sometimes freeze in place in groups. They will not move again until they are each individually ordered to move. Monks seem especially affected, and also do not passively heal nearby units, but must be ordered to do so individually.

:arrow_forward: FREQUENCY OF ISSUE

:point_down: How often does the issue occur? CHOSE ONE; DELETE THE REST!

  • 50% of the time / matches I play (FREQUENTLY)

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

:point_down: List CLEAR and DETAILED STEPS we can take to reproduce the issue ourselves… Be descriptive!

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. I cannot offer steps that repeat the issue. It has happened to me in skirmishes and in campaign missions. I have not played against human players since this began, so I cannot say if it is only in player vs AI, and it has only happened to me since the Return of Rome DLC went public, so it is recent.

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

:point_down: What was SUPPOSED to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?

:arrow_forward: IMAGE

:point_down: ALWAYS attach a PICTURE (.jpg, .png, .gif) or VIDEO (.mp4, YouTube link) that highlights the problem.

Units standing still do not make for a clarifying image.

:arrow_forward: GAME FILES (SAVE / RECORDING)

:point_down: Attach a SAVE GAME (.aoe2spgame) or GAME RECORDING (.aoe2record) of the match where you encountered the issue. Link it below if using an external file service.

*My game recordings with this issue seem to have disappeared from my game. I do not know why; they were all in the last few days, and all of my other games are still recorded in the folder. I am afraid I am not much help on recreation.


Had this issue too, with a pikeman (I believe) that got stuck and could not move from its position. Somehow it got unstuck after a few seconds of me trying to get it unstuck (without selecting it individually from the group). Happened using build 83607.
