Huge PVP technical issue.
I noticed something really strange since the patch 25D was out :
the more i was playing PVP, the more it became obvious that all the opponents i was facing were really easy to beat, making weird moves that were not relevant at all, such as right-clic moving the whole army throught the map, letting me kill everything during their long travel without reaction, or standing still with their whole army in the middle of the map and let me ruin it with mage's AOE without any reaction either.
After a few pvp battles like this, i was starting to think that i was the only good player left out there, that i was god like etc etc xD
After then, i started a new pvp battle where my opponent opened the dialogue box and told me "hey, try to move your units, not like the last time i fought you"
I was pretty confused about that statment and figured out that i played him yesterday and that obvioulsy, since i was the battle god of mythador, he must have been mistaken or under some narcotics effects.
We play the battle, I pwn him hard as usual, he played silly moves and didnt seem to pay many attention to what was happening on the battlefield.
Then we started to discuss the battle we just had : and what a surprise when i discovered we didnt seem to play the same battle AT ALL !
First of all, he told me he just had an easy win ... i was like " hu ?! i am the one wo had an easy win !!" => the game registered a win for both of us.
Then we started to relate every action that occured during the fight, and once again, We didnt play the same battle at all : i killed some of his units that he never seen dying, same for him he told me he killed my mage and my dragon right at the begining of the game whereas i used them for 30 mins on the battlefiled ... well actually they never died ! None of my unit did either.
Overall we kept going from surprises to astonishment when we realised that every action the other player did was not reflecting on the other player's screen, like if my army was played by some really dumb AI for him and vice-verca ...
And since then, everysingle pvp battle i had was the same deal.
FYI all theses battles were played with armies betwenn 1300 & 1500 strong If it can be of any help.
I dont know if many other player are experiencing this issue, but its starting to get really frustratiing =(.
Also I'm not sure if its a bug but appart from one single arranged battle, i was never attacked on my vassal cities or could attack one yet, the few times i could seem to find an opponent when i tried to siege NPC towns with the pvp options, the research finally timed out and the game crashed.
thank you very much for reporting this, i will contact the devs asap and talk to them about these bugs, could you be kind to attach your log files to this document aswell? we sorry that this has happend, and we will do our best to fix it as soon as possible.

allright, i attached the 5 logfiles to this repply, I hope they are the good ones.
Add something to this
I fought him after D and right before E patch and I killed his red dragon,his wizard,his royal and all of his troops that were still behind his wooden camp walls and I thought it was strange myself as he ran his calvary out I killed them then he ran his red out I killed it and then his wiz who never took a shot.
Then ran to his open gates and killed his royal while his wardens were heading up my way like they were collecting his dead as none of my troops died his army was over 1500 and they were wiped not even a cart was left.
I think this is part of that pvp bug that's been going around that you don't get crowns for and it never actually declares a victor even though your guys are doing the victory cheer. On the upside I did get 27k gold from looting his dead troops and dragons.
seams a huge desyncronization problem. i will bring up this problem to the team asap
Ran some tests myself. Log of dsync from my opponent and myself.
Notes: I canceled preparation timer and my opponent still had his going. Game did not start till his preparation timer had ended even though I had canceled it.
Game carried on like I was playing the AI. He had victory way before I had finished off his units though the game continued as if he didn't have victory (Didn't declare victory on my game). After he logged off the game just did a stutter loop. I exited the game with a victory since he did not get a victory on my dsynced version.
I basically had lost no units and pretty much destroyed his army. His version he did the same to me.
Yup, i remember playing vs godessa a few times, and on my side, i wiped out his whole army too but i guess it was the same for him.
On a sidenote, i always get the gold from looting too, but the first clue that made me think there was smth wrong is the fact that even when my opponents left the battle, i was not receiving any pay off.
Indeed it pretty much looks like some big problem of desynchronisation.
Note : i always get the crowns from my "stolen" victories, and for the example I gave you, he had them too.
As far as i can remember, the last normal pvp match i had was versus Konstantine the day before patch D release when he was running around to test out siege battles with the new expansion, he sieged my smallest town and everything ran pretty smoothy.
I also had a fight against Hamm, the one that told him to move his units this time lol. While fighting him found it strange how almost his entire army stood in his camp almost throughout the pvp fight. Even while I was burning down his camp with my archers. I found it strange how he was only sending one unit at me to fight. I never really put 2 and 2 together just thought he was inexperience.. though after a discussion with him I realize how wrong I was and how it felt like we were in the same pvp match yet fighting two different fights. Just wanted to my 2 cents into it and hope this bug is fixed in the next patch. Which I have much hope that the devs team can do that ^^. I will also like to thank the dev team for all their hard work and effort in making this game the best it can be, I appreciate yall hard work and look forward to when this game become the best of this genre :P.
