    The Viking Fury ability to disembark using only 1 move no longer works after the Fall patch.

    To reproduce:
    1. Create a game as Denmark (archipelago/modern is easiest).
    2. Embark a unit, skip turn for rest of units.
    3. Disembark that unit - it uses all its moves instead of just 1.

    FYI, the same ability is also broken for the Celts in the Fall of Rome scenario.

    Edit: The auto-pathing still seems to think it works. When you try to disembark somewhere the unit could reach in a single turn, the pathing will sometimes choose a path that disembarks elsewhere and walks to the spot you clicked. It knows that it takes 2 turns to get there instead of 1, it just picks that path anyway.

    Edit: This bug has been fixed. Woot!

    Just played a game with Denmark, but it dosent seem like they can move after disembarking. Bug or nerf?

    Is it global does everyone has it?

    By the way I didn't play the ottomans yet but someone should check if the sephaphi still works... It could have the same issue .

    I'd say it's likely a bug that comes from trying to fix another bug. As I understand, embarked units from Denmark did not pay all of their movement when landing...or going though ZoC, and I know I saw someone say that with the Blitz promotion, they could attack as many times as they had movement every turn.

    Likely in trying to make them respect these other things, they ended up respecting the landing using all movement too.

    I didn't see that on the patch notes however, so if that is the case, scary to think of what else we might find due to fixes that weren't announced.

    I just ran into the same issue. People were saying that Denmark would get a badly needed boost from this patch. Little did they know...
