Fleet failed to build in Edinburgh (no bug)

Postby Woodchuck123 » 07 May 2020, 15:01

Game # 170092
Game Name: stevezug65
Turn: Fall 1903 Build

England claims they submitted and finalized building a fleet in Edinburgh, but for whatever reason the fleet didn't get built. He says he saw the big F on Edinburgh and finalized his orders.

We checked the build orders, and it doesn't show an order for England.
BUILD fleet Brest -> resolvedITALY
Tuscany DESTROY -> resolved
Livonia DESTROY -> resolved
Ionian Sea DESTROY -> resolved
BUILD army Smyrna -> resolved
BUILD army Constantinople -> resolved
BUILD army Warsaw -> resolved

We have no reason to doubt England. So either there was a bug, or operator error on England's part.

Is there a way to get fleet built for England in Edinburgh? We want everyone to have a fair chance.

99.9% sure it is operator error, however, a mod will be along shortly to investigate what the DB says happened.

I think we found a solution.

Everyone has agreed to put in HOLD orders until the next build turn, and then England will re-enter their build orders.

We are on the honor system that England will put in their original orders. ;)

As a general rule, always hit Refresh after entering your orders to make sure system has accepted them as entered, especially on Mobile devices. You can then Finalize after that. Every once in a while, there can be glitches and this eliminates them.
