Known Issues

Tons o’ Toys Challenge Long Trip Not Unlocking 

We are aware that the in-game text for “Long Trip” incorrectly indicates this challenge is unlocked by playing a 2v2 multiplayer Empire Wars match. The correct unlock requirement is: 

  • 🔒 Play a 2v2 multiplayer match versus 2 AI opponents. 


Late January/Early February Patch  

We are planning for our next minor patch to release in early 2024, with a target of late January or early February.
