Re: Patch 6 did not fix empty army slots/ no new captains

Same here.  I'm debating using return to garrison orders on my best orcs and starting a new game to reset all areas and hope they fixed captains becoming bugged in the first place.  This is first I've heard they are definitely going to fix this bug specifically .  Depending on how soon "relatively" means ,maybe I'll farm spoils of war and try to be patient... Especially if the bug were to return in my in "fresh" game, I might really lose it if it did.

Re: Patch 6 did not fix empty army slots/ no new captains

@pizzaface - I can't say 100% because sometimes a fix does not address all instances of a bug. However, dead Captains not leaving the heirarchy and no new Captains appearing *is* a bug with a known fix on deck. And looking at the known bugs list, that would appear to be the only one like it. So I'm cautiously optimistic that this issue may be drawing to a close.

Thanks for your patience on this!

Oh thank you for fixing this. I have 3 enemy and 1 allied ork that was beheaded that will not be replaced on 1 map alone.

@DerrameN No worries! Hopefully that'll get you guys sorted out. Sorry again for the inconvenience - we're still working hard to make things right and we'll keep at it.

 

Thanks for playing the game!

Re: Patch 6 did not fix empty army slots/ no new captains

In my game it is partly fixed. In every area i travelled i encountert an ork who betrayed dead and used one of the dead slots. But about 2-3 dead slots in the army menu left.

Looking forward to seeing this fixed. Only have the issue in Nurnen but there are currently 7 slots with dead uruks that are taking up space.

Re: Patch 6 did not fix empty army slots/ no new captains

Well, guess I'll go a few more weeks without playing this game. Maybe someday they'll get out of beta. Wonder how many people's already got rid or given up on this and moved on. Not sure how long they expect people to be patient.

Re: Patch 6 did not fix empty army slots/ no new captains

Im having captains pop in and ambush me and they are not in the army screen at all, also the online pit fights are about as broke as some other features of the game im not pitting even my worst orcs against this crap fest my follower stands there and taunts the whole time while the other cap lights him up ive lost more followers since the online pit fights came along than all my fort seiges combined and thats a steward rating with 1000 assault rating in every area

Re: Patch 6 did not fix empty army slots/ no new captains

Guys i think i already found a fix for this. I had the same problem with dead orcs not populating the army screen then i decided to try something.

 

Lets say you have 7 slots with dead orcs that won't repopulate. Also lets say you have 2 empty slots and 5 enemies slots (identified or unidentified) 7+2+5 = 14

 

Make sure you have at least 14 orc in your garrison.

 

Now go to your army screen and start deploying your orcs to those slots.

 

At first the empty slots will get filled, then the slots with dead orcs that have been bugging you for so long will get filled, then the enemy slots will get filled with your guys fighting their way in (they always seem to win). Do this till you get the message "No avaliable space for your follower"

 

All of your Army screen spaces should be filled, worked for me.

 

Now kill the orcs you don't want however you like and new enemies willstart to come back in to the army screen.

 

Hope this helps.
