Known issues

  • External buildings may be blocked despite the Roman camps having been defeated (could be the reason why certain quests and/or achievements cannot be completed) This issue might not be visible in the game – the game throws an error when you encounter it.
  • Statistics for brawls won and lost (as defender) not correctly displayed in statistics category tab “village brawls”. 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. Don’t forget to pick up your brawl rewards as soon as possible!
  • 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)
  • One time roman helmet offer that triggers with a level up are not available in the regular roman helmet market. please start the paying process in the dialog that triggers with the level up (to get the bonus roman helmets).
  • [chat] Sometimes, the connection to a specific chat room fails – you have to refresh the game in this case.
  • [chat] You disconnect from the chat server completely when you try to connect to a chat room that is already full. Unfortunately, the information if a chat room is full or not is not displayed in the game. You have to refresh the game to reconnect to the chat server (you get transferred automatically to a room that isn’t full yet).
  • The “building upgrades bought” statistic of players who have been inactive for a very long time is not correct under certain circumstances. The statistic is counting building upgrades AND completed villager trainings, whereas your own building upgrade statistic is only counting the building upgrades WITHOUT the villager trainings. (the player with the display issue has to log into the game at least once in order to update the building upgrade statistic
  • [facebook] Facebook share text is does not differentiate between legions attacking you and legions attacking others
  • Sometimes the game throws an error when unloading the cargo ship
  • [mail] level up overflow mails are not marked as “unread”
  • It’s possible that 2 legions spawn within a short period of time. We are not sure what causes this issue – any information on this might help us in our investigation
  • Issue with delivery of mails: sometimes mails don’t arrive in a player’s inbox right away. This is possible with mails sent by other players, but also with system messages (level up, resistance level reward, …)
  • Sometimes adding a village to the friends map places it in the same position as another village
  • Windows 8: (IE11) issue with hit area in game when starting the game
  • [market] item offers do not activate for players who have logged into the game before the offer starts
  • [chat]the chat room you are currently in disappears when changing to a chatroom that does not exist. Please refresh the game to reconnect to the missing chat room.
  • issuewith the avatar’s strength when equipping Avatar (with full strength) with a weapon after your guild has already unlocked the “increased avatar strength” buff. The avatar buff does not count, but only for one fight.
  • Rarely,the game throws an error when picking up produced goods or crafted items from workshops or resource buildings. Example: “Building 15 doesn’t have 2 results ready – it has 1”. Server and Client are not in sync at this moment – you have to refresh the game to get the correct status of the building and the produced items.

Known issues (guild)

  • Guild banner, name and invitation setting changes are not immediately effective for other players or guild members. They have to wait a few minutes until the changes are visible on the friendsmap.
  • New guild members who have joined a guild are not visible on the friendsmap right away. Wait a few minutes or refresh the game to see the member on the friendsmap.
