    I've bought the game on steam around march 15th 2020 on win10 updated. I used to play the single player without any issues, but not able to play on multiplayer. Then this update (35199) came......i can only be on the menus then is just crush. No message, it just closes

  • nostrodomosfu March 6, 2020

    I can't update. Error 0x87e00013 in Microsoft Store :(

  • dinohead1 March 4, 2020

    I wonder if there's an update planned for the pathfinding and the AI. Many campaign maps are also broken, the CPU just stops playing!

    I love this game so much! I hope they continue to support it! Cheers

    Multiplayer (LAN) game keeps crashing since the Feb 20, 2020 release, after 5-20 min. of game play. Can't play... :(

    • seajumpingcat March 8, 2020

      I have exactly the same problem with 35199 release, Windows 10pro is up to-date 18363.693 on all my machines and I only play it over LAN with my son and it crashes randomly always during the game. I even changed my LAN infrastructure but no change. I am wondering if anybody can play it over LAN. It was working in the past with older releases but now not playable over LAN for me too. Very disappointing!

      I Have the same problem:( what can we do?

  • thegogudude February 29, 2020

    So.. on the MS Store I can get the update to work. Searching for updates, no results. still stuck with version 27374.

    • adammentof March 21, 2020

      As your comment is aready a couple of weeks old, you may have figured it out already. In case you (and others) have not. If you have version 27374, that is the old client and there is no update available for that client. Instead you have to install the new client from the Microsoft Store.

    Report: This is not LoL or DotA2, the censorship was too much and now this, this gonna be so horribly abused. I love everything about this game, hopefully the reporting stuff is gonna be regulated but we're not children Microsoft... Someone should be able to use any name they want and say whatever they want, or just add an option to block names and curses for those who need it... Why not add 60 genres while we're at it? Hell, block anyone who doesn't use their real names, take blood and death away from the game cuz it's offensive... This is ridiculous...

    • xaviertenka February 28, 2020

      Well, wrong game forum, I fail, someone delete this cuz i can't.

  • dkt February 28, 2020

  • elitelord81 February 27, 2020

  • sweet-jesus February 27, 2020
