yep, I could reproduce it. This is definitely a huge issue!

You posted this 4 days ago and this still hasn’t been addressed? Just ruined a game of mine, hope the guy gets banned.

Hey, not familiar with the forum that’s actually my first post.
Just to let you know that there is an actual glitch/hack on the United States Civ with a mercenaries Card which give you 3500 Gold & 1 Xp leveling every time you click on it.

this is a major issue. there is a section for posting bugs in the forums, post it there so there’s a better chance devs can see it.

Want to make sure this gets noticed quick. This exploit is getting spread around quick.

But will return you a shipment and 3500 gold once you click.
you can easily earn unlimited gold and shippments by this bug.


i can’'t see how you replicate this?

I think he means send the shipment then try to cancel it, it won’t cancel but you’ll get a refund.

I’m wagering he’s a chinese player and doesn’t quite understand how to do a proper bug report.

Thank you for the note! Can confirm that we are tracking this issue and will have a fix included in an upcoming hotfix!

Thank you all for the report!
