Known issues:

  • External buildings may be blocked despite the Roman camps having been defeated 
  • [Browser] Rarely, error #3672 when playing/loading the game in Chrome
  • Statistics for brawls won and lost (as defender) not correctly displayed in statistics category tab ‘village brawl’. A game refresh is needed to see the correct PvP defender statistics. Same goes for the PvP achievement: win x brawls as a defender.
  • It’s not possible to store more than 20 brawl report mails (+ brawl rewards) in your inbox. DonĂ•t forget to pick up your brawl rewards as soon as possible!
  • The game throws an (out of sync) error when receiving mails while having lots of actions queued (rare)
  • Constructed Outposts in Egypt and in Gaul might not display the correct amount of time left – please refresh your browser once in a while to prevent server-client syncing issues (especially when you are planning to extend the outpost time)
  • Rarely, a quest row quest (Asterix or Obelix quest rows) cannot be completed although the client is already showing the rewards. You have to complete all objectives to get the rewards (you can see the objective list in the quest portrait tooltip on the left side)
  • We are aware of the problems concerning the PvP tournament and we are currently improving the PvP tournament system
  • Issues when fighting against a Roman Unit (patrol, camp, legion) where it’s possible to lose a fight with a 100% win chance. Please add the steps to reproduce when you encounter this issue (for example: Used food to regain strength – yes or no? Villager is equipped with sword/spear/shield/helmet. Overall strength of your villagers VS. overall strength of the Roman Unit)
  • Just a display issue: Brawler strength bar refills, if you win a brawl with only one brawler

Known issues: EGYPT

  • [Egypt] Egyptian workers are sometimes called Ă’villagersĂ“ in some descriptions (upgrade a worker, equip a worker, …)
  • [Egypt] The palace construction progress bar may not display the correct progress. Please make sure to update the palace status once in a while (by clicking on the palace) to get the latest palace status!
  • [Egypt] resistance points production tick timer resets when clicking on the palace to pick up the produced resistance points.
    You can avoid this issue by picking up the resistance points when the palace is full.
