    This happened to me as well. I was in Cirith Ungol. After it happened, I left and went on to completing missions and building my army in other areas for a while. Including doing some online fortress assaults and retaking a region that had been taken from me. When I went back to Cirith Ungol the Warchiefs functioned as normal. Not sure what I did to make it stop though.

    or or Is the dev team aware of this? Any fix planned? It kills a very important part of the core gameplay loop. Taking out Warchiefs (or dominating them) is one of the biggest parts of sieges.

    Same problem here.
    New warchief appear nearly 30sec in real time after the kill. Doesn' t let me the time to do anything, and it's always a unknown one. Can't even put my ones there :c

    This 'bug' (or 'by design'?) was introduced with the release of DOM DLC, back in May.   Whether it's 'fixed' (or changed?) in the July update is unknown.

    I tried unstalling the game and reinstalling without the DOM DLC , it seemed to work until my first death, the Warchiefs started spawning almost instantly again. If I was really fast I could assign a follower to fill the empty spot and the mission notification would pop up, but after 2 or 3 minutes it would disappear and an unknown Warchief spawned in the spot. I'm out until/ if this is ever fixed.

    I really hope this gets fixed. I don't even get two or three minutes to try and install my own orc. It happens instantly. I dominated a Warchief during his Ambush mission in Gorgoroth (it's happening there now instead of Cirith Ungol) and as soon as the mission completed and I got my reward, I opened the menu and he was replaced with a new unknown Warchief and his Fortress Upgrade was reactivated.

    I'd really like to be able to dominate all the warchiefs before taking down the fortress. This bug is making my fortress assaults more difficult since the new Warchiefs are spawning in at around my level while most of the army is 10 to 15 levels below me.

    As an update the new patch did not fix the issue.

    It's related to difficulty guys. Any difficulty level above Normal and the warchiefs will instantly respawn, so you're forced to perform your sieges against everything the fort can throw at you. If it's a huge issue for you then just lower the difficulty for your sieges then increase it again once you own the fortress.

    I don't think that's the case. Night before last I was able to install my own Warchief in a fortress.

    My memory is failing me at the moment. Originally if you dominated a Warchief, did he always leave his spot and move down to the regular army? When I dominated a Warchief, his spot was left open and I had to send an orc to the pits to take his place. Is that how it always worked and I just don't remember?
