In Washington's game: I joined the Roman empire and still only have the tech that I had previously developed. The empire has all sort of tech that I don't have- like I can't build phalanx or legionnaires.
what's the deal?
Can other people in the empire build them?
There's a known and fairly common bug, where some technologies would be displayed as owned by a civilization when they aren't and when the civilization cannot use the benefits thereof.
yup. they have more advanced military units
This has made Washington's game to screwed up to play. I just earned enough tech to get iron working and it just continued to build up and didn't advance the technology.
Is anybody paying attention to how buggy this game is?
