    Looks like there's a bug in the "Bonus in friendly lands" the Himeji Castle and Oligarchy provide. If I'm not mistaken, the bonus should work only in friendly territory. But it looks like it works even in enemy territory:



    The enemy (Russia) has both the Himeji Castle and Oligarchy. That gives them 58% bonus you can see in the picture. But as you can also see - the territory is mine.

    Thanks. I note that there is no bonus in 'neutral' territory. I wonder if it somehow thinks your open borders haven't actually expired?

    I would like to say I also had this same problem. I THINK Russia built the hemji castle, then Persia invaded Russia. Then invaded me. I saw this exact same thing.

    Actually now that I think about it Persia probably built it, cuz they invaded Russia with ungodly speed.

    Pretty game breaking when my helicopter gunship attacks a modern armor... And gets owned. :p

    I can figure out how to post a save file if you want me to as well

    Got the same. As Egypt I had the 33% bonus from the tradition social policy tree and invading Siam I captured the city where he had built the Castle. A bit later I was getting both bonuses combined on fights in his territory.

    Can anyone tell if they are actually GETTING the bonuses, or if they are just incorrectly showing up in the odds display?

    I just got this bug in a war against Persia. He's definitely getting the +58% bonus in my lands. I only noticed this bonus after he was just slaughtering my full-powered units of equal strength (infantry vs infantry), but I could barely scratch him.

    I also figured it had something to do with the open borders agreement not nullifying when war was declared.

    I tried to add a screen shot but I'm far too incompetient without someone telling me how.

    Basically, playing as Egypt and Arabias swarming through my lands and despite being far enough into my borders to be just outside my capital they're still getting the oligarchy bonus of 33% strength inside friendly borders. clearly we are NOT friends since he's trying to kill me.

    Getting so bored of the whole endless war of ciV

    In the attached screenshot the enemy unit is getting a +25% bonus for being in friendly lands. He's in my terrority and I'm at war with him.

    Just had to quit a game over this bug. Injuns declare war with troops IN MY TERRITORY and attack units that are in open ground. When they DoW, the Open Borders do not cancel, his troops are not ejected from my lands, and the real game ruiner - he gets a 33% bonus on my territory.

    I pronounce this game officially broken.

    Civ - where you are the beta tester.

    Team,

    I am currently in a game as Greece (Patch of Sept 30th) where I am at war with England.

    They are within my boarders but they still receive a 60%+ Friendly Territory bonus. Almost makes the game unplayable with that bug.


    Any ideas?

    I'm having the same bug... really frustrating. I captured Arabian city and they keep having their 33% bonus even though they are fighting in my territory.

    At least for the purpose of confirming it's already enough, we don't need any further savegames for it.

    Can others confirm this bug is STILL present? I am getting hit with it attacking Egyptian troops in my territory who get a +25% bonus in friendly lands bonus on the odds screen. Latest patch.

    This pisses me off SO MUCH.

    I can verify this is happening with city bombard, but not unit vs unit in the current build. Please provide a save if you see something different. Thanks!

    Found and corrected for the next update. It looks like it was only reflected in the UI, and not gameplay.
