    I have been having this issue in all regions since Lithlad had been added to the game. I submitted 2 tickets, one before the update and another after. Sadly some regions like Gorgoroth in my game has 3 spots like that and it gets to be frustrating. It’s a fun game otherwise...

    This happens in every map

    I let time pass "new unkonwn captains" spawn, yet they disappear or the captans I recruit disappear.

    This is a known and still existing problem with v1.22.

    Well, this was the last playthrough I was going to do before uninstalling.  This bug is annoying enough for me to disregard the playthrough and just uninstall.  That'll fix it on my end for sure.

    I think they're falling "under" the map screen, like the physics for the ground in the army screen jsnt working properly. I came to this conclusion when my Warchiefs seemingly disappeared, I highlighted their position on the fort and their name popped up, and after hovering on their position for a bit the entire screen shifted up and their silouette was "under" the fortress. It's hard to explain what I mean in words, but have you ever been playing a game and had your charactwr glitch under the game map where everything is white, black, and pixelated? Kinda like that. Skyrim players might know what I mean, underground chests.

    I know exactly what you mean by that.  Happens in lots of game.  Use to happen to me in SoM a lot before I got the computer I have now.  Old computer couldn't keep up with the game which caused Talion to fall through the map often.  But these invisible Captains are the first time I've seen anything like that in SoW.

     

    And I have several memories of characters walking under the ground in Skyrim or being stuck somewhere and I couldn't reach them.  They were funny at first and then became irritating.  Fortunately we can actually save the game in Skyrim where as in SoM and SoW everything is auto-saved.  Not that I have a problem with the auto-saving.  This is merely a disadvantage of it.

    It's v1.22, Xbox One

     

    The version is displayed lower right of the first menu when game is launched.

     

    The big problem is that these 'invisible' Captains take the cell they are 'on' out of play while they remain glitched.   In other words, it reduces the number of viable and active Army screen slots by 1.   This increases the likelyhoold of one of your Followers being instantly nerfed/replaced from the 'by design' Captain replacement mechanic.  It's like a game of musical chairs.   Some players I've heard have 2 or even more slots bugged in this manner.   It gets to the point of not ever wanting to visit these regions anymore due to such issues.

    Lol before one of the early patches I only had three slots left that actually worked in one region. It did get fixed for me in the same save though, honestly I was suprised to see this is still an issue.

    All right.  I'm done fighting with this **bleep**.  It's just too damned irritating.  And it's not just the invisible captains.  It's the gaps in dialogue when picking up artifacts and shelob's memories.  These same problems existed in SoM and they were never fixed.  So they won't be fixed this time around.  I'm done with this **bleep**.  They got their $60 out of me with SoM and their $100 with SoW.  That's enough.

     Sorry you're having this problem but we are actually working on it now. The invisible captains bug is a known issue and we're working on a hot fix now. Hopefully, *hopefully* pretty soon.

     

    If you can hold on a bit longer, awesome. I understand your frustration, though. Sorry again for the trouble.

    You do you whatever you want pal. The game is already uninstalled on my end and it's not being brought back. I was being sincere when I told you it was good hear y'all were working on the next projects because everyone needs a paycheck. But I'm not messing with installment any longer or the rumored third. I was fighting with myself for months over whether or not I should even touch SoW. That battle will not be fought a second time.
