Known issues:

  • Internet Explorer users may experience Flash player version issues, especially with IE10.
  • 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).
  • [Browser] Rarely, error #3672 when playing/loading the game in Chrome.
  • Game sometimes throws an error when trying to complete the achievement “Gaulish Strongmen” – after a game refresh, the achievement can be completed without an error.
  • Some user might run into an error when crafting potions at druid circle.
  • The game throws an error when receiving mails while having lots of actions queued.
  • Achievement pop-up for the achievement “good student” does not trigger
  • 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!
  • Sometimes, the game throws an error when a recently finished building upgrade triggers the “home sweet home” achievement. Game refresh solves the problem.
  • new potion names are too long, they get cut off in the potion crafting dialog.
