Check that page about leveling units: http://age-of-wonders-3.wikia... especially the last sections about XP counters and XP maximization.

We know it's not fair but you have to keep in mind that whenever this situation happen to a player, it is impossible to prove if the player was indeed victim of a bug or if he just reloaded somehow and thus cheated. We believe you did not cheat but if we said: "let's trust El Lobo and not give him warning", then the next player to whom it happens will say: "why don't you trust me?", etc. and then everybody will be free to reload and claiming that he was victim of the bug.
That's why we don't have a choice but give this warning.
Hopefully, with all the new recent reports, Triumph will make some progress to solve it...

It's not fair to get a warning without doing anything wrong but I have to deal with it. For this game it makes no difference because gab has killed nearly all of my troops in the last turn. He'll need 2 or 3 turns more to finish.


How can you get 2 heroes to level 12 and 13 so early? As I said, my start was horrible. Lost my cavallry, the 1st hero and an axeman within the first four turns. At this point the game was already lost but even if I wouldn'd have lost all these troops my leader and the 1st hero would not have reached level 10 at all. I know killing a unit gives more experience than just hitting and hitting a high tier unit gives more experience than hitting a low tier unit. Are there any other things I have to keep in mind to increase the hero level faster?

Hi! Thanks El Lobo for the detailed report to the devs! <smiletext0> For the time when the turn was ready, you should be able to see it in the email notification you received when gab played his turn.

You can continue now. We discussed between judges and unfortunately, as this bug cannot be proved, we are giving El Lobo a warning for reload not justified by proper proof. (the report to the devs will help to solve that bug helpfully!)

EDIT: and gab, please check in your email notificatios after El Lobo plays his turn: does it display a reload notification? If not, then we can remove the warning. Recently, we have had a few cases where the server actually did not register any reload following that bug.

Please wait for judges' green light for now.

Published on 2017-02-23 14:00:26

I'll do this in the evening after work and soccer. Can't access the game at work.

Should I wait with my turn or should I click yes and proceed?

Ok but in theory you should have had a download of the game before that message appeared.
It seems Triumph's server is having some issues as we are having a lot of this bug recently... Please report your occurrence of it here: />You need to provide info about:
- ID of the game
- size of the save (.apg)
- time when you had the issue (when the notification appeared the 1st time)
- time when the turn was ready (when gab finished his turn)

Please also send a screenshot of the 3 files of the save to judges (marcuspers, Fistandantilus and me).

You can check this link from marcuspers which explains how to do: />
We are trying to get Triumph to fix this issue, that's why we ask for so many things, because it can help them identify the source of the bug.

I wanted to make my next turn and when I clicked on the play-button the message I posted in my post published on 2017-02-23 08:50:00 appeared. I havn't changed aything neither on my notebook nor in the game.

Translation: You are about to restart the game what isn't allowed in ironman mode. Are you sure you want to continue?

Published on 2017-02-23 11:53:31

Hello guys! Didn't see any message from El Lobo?
To complete what Markymark said: we need to confirm that between all 3 judges. And El Lobo, could you please give more info about what happened exactly?

Published on 2017-02-23 11:17:06

Hello, got a message through contact.
You got a warning and the Counter will be increased.

Have you an idea why you got this warning?
Maybe stopping Internet Connection? For example IP Cut or you has driven in a tunnel?

Regards, Mark

Published on 2017-02-23 09:23:11

Okay, I'll inform Hiliadan.

PS: It's german, not dutch! ;-)

Published on 2017-02-23 09:13:53

Lol, i think this is iron mode message but i don't speak Dutch <smiletext0>, this is a message for player who try to restart turn or some time this is a bug, for you i think this is a bug.
For me no problem, you must wait judge before clic on yes ...

Published on 2017-02-23 08:50:00

I can't make my next turn. When I try to enter the game I get the attached message. What does it mean?

Published on 2017-02-23 08:00:35

Yes <smiletext0>, i pay 235 gold for that before you kill the bone dragon <smiletext1>.

Like gab said we have already started. I have had a horrible start so I guess he won't need much time (turns) to finish the game. 

Published on 2017-02-19 16:19:34

El_Lobo has replaced Kelda. gab, please resend your class/race to the judges if you want to change and then please host and post screenshots of the settings. I asked his class/race to El_Lobo, you should be able to start soon.

Published on 2017-02-07 10:17:45

Hello Markus, i don't know him <smiletext0>, i see 10 or more kelda in steam ....

Published on 2017-02-06 18:08:10

Hi Gab,

We are still waiting for Kelda to get back to us with class and race.

Have you tried contact him/her? I couldnt find Kelda on Steam so except for sending messages here (which doesnt seems to work!) there is limited options for us.

Published on 2017-02-01 17:16:51

Hi Kelda! Round 1 of the Duel Tournament has started. Please send your class/race by private message (PM) to the 3 judges: Fistandantilus, marcuspers and Hiliadan. Then you need to host the game and post screenshots of the settings (in windowed mode) here.
gabthegab has already sent his class/race.

As you're relatively new to tournament, please do not hesitate to post here or send PM if you have questions. Good luck & have fun both!
