    Swithing regions unfortunately did not work for me. Dead captains are still invisible and no new captain spawns despite me repeatedly getting the message that a new captain has arrived everytime I advance time. I dont own DOM so i cant confirm the relation between this bug and DOM. This happen in Seregost, while in Nurn, new captain only ever spawn in one same spot, one at a time even after several "Advance time", makes it difficult to find captains with good traits as i can only kill one at a time. I didnt try to check out the other regions.

    I've also been having these problems, especially in Seregost where trying to deploy market orcs erases them and trying to deploy market legendaries had them fight and kill each other without warning. Buncha ead slots that never open back up. In addition my game has started crashing somewhat regularily when marathonning the pit fights, I don't have DOM but this all started after the update last week.

    I have this problem also. It's ruined the game totally. All support had be do was try unplugging the xbox for 2 minutes then booting up to clear the cache. That did nothing. I also tried uninstalling, then reinstalling the complete game, that did nothing.

    This more likely is a problem on their server end.

    I did not ever have this problem until this last dlc patch came out.

    Even taking a guy out of the garrison results in him not appearing in my army. I have lost a bunch of good guys due to this bug.

    Support has been no help to me either. It's like they don't even read the email I send them, due to the reply I get back.

    I don't get crashes though. I play on the Xbox One X.

    Update now another orc that has the same name is now in Lithlad and mias morgul along with three or more invisible dead captains in minas morgul. Some time a live invisible captain will show up. This is really ruining the gameplay please fix this ASAP

    Never mind the previous post about the same name, the captain in cirith ungul did get replaced but the new captain was still invisible on the army screen even when he was alive. And in minas morgul there are still three invisible dead captains one of which is also in Lithlad.

    Now the captain that is invisible in cirith ungol is also showing up in nurnen. This is a very strange glitch indeed. Any info on when this will be fixed will help us all...

    I have encountered the same problem. I have two orcs, one mine, the other an enemy, who are both dead. They both possess two blank spaces respectively. There names and the blood slash across their names are all that appear. My orc has spread to another area, and has broken it. I can no longer get new orcs in either area, through the game or the garrison. Through this I have lost my overlord and three warchiefs, three garrison captains, and the ability to get new orcs, or get rid of the old ones. They are dead, with no chance of cheating death, and this is far from okay, as one orc is now in two places corrupting them both. This needs to be fixed as soon as possible, because I cannot play the game while this game breaking glitch is still active. I will not play the game, as I do not want the glitch to spread, and I do not want to lose anymore of my good orcs.

    I have found a solution. Apparently what you need to do, is promote the captain after having revived and commanded him to war chief or overlord, they will then move to that spot, visible, and your fortress will be okay. I have yet to see whether this has saved the other fortress but wherever you are able to command them, promote them.

    Unfortunately, in the area where I still have the empty name spot of my orc, and that of an enemy orc captain, the issue has not been resolved.

    There are 13 spots in Nuren on Blade of Galadriel that have invisible dead captains. This is getting out of control. No new captains are appearing even when I advance time.

    I am having the same problems that those have listed.xa0 Not only are dead captains staying in one spot but they are not going on missions.xa0 If they do go on missions and I advance time the mission disappears.

    I started a new game and got up to unlocking cirith ungol and the glitch has not happened yet, but I am worried that if I progress further it will appear. Any word on when this will be fixed? Soon or on the day the free update comes out?

    I too have this problem, in Lithlad.  An empty cell in the Army Screen has the Follower Captains name with the red 'X' through it indicating deceased, but no Captain body or his parts are shown.   It has remained this way since roughly a week before the July patch (v1.22) was released and it hasn't changed.  No new Captain spawn into that slot, in effect it's a 'dead' cell and out of play in that region.  Any new Captains that spawn into the region will skip it and go into the other only open slot OR over-write an existing one by that 'by design' fautly mechanic (poof gone).   .  

     

    Also, that 'Follower' whose name is shown when you pan over that cell, he is not one of mine, meaning I never branded him or slotted from Garrisson.  He just showed up about a month or so ago as part of a 'Nemesis' Mission icon that suddenly spawned in that slot (in Lithlad).  There was no Captain in the slot, just the Mission icon (Trail by Beast).   Knowing this was a little unusual, I selected (highlited) that mission and it somehow showed me Minas Morgul.   Anyway, the Mission actually took place in Lithlad (where I already was), and when I went to that location (in Lithlad) the Captain listed in the preview was darkened as if he was an 'Unknown' Captain in the region (which is sort of true because I had no idea who this guy was at that time).  Once the mission started, that level 54 Tank showed up, defeated the Graug, leveled to 55 then disapeared.  He stil didn't show in Lithlad, only his 'live' name (without the 'X' signifying dead) over an empty cell, and of course you couldn't select him to move to Garrisson, send to Fight Pit, etc - so he was there 'virutally' only.   Now he's dead (no idea what killed him, lol) , and his cell is non-operational. So this bug was not fixed in the update.

    I still have the invisible orc issue in Lithlad after the patch. It is in Lithlad where the problem seemed to begin and an invisible level 25 orc called 'Grom Caragor-Fang' has been occupying a slot for months now. I cannot deploy orcs to fill his slot because they just disappear. The patch notes say that this issue has been fixed but, alas, the problem still persists. I hope that anyone still having this issue continues to post about the problem to make sure that this stays in the spotlight until in is fixed.

    Okay,

     

    Story time from Uncle Dwayden.

     

    I currently have 1 spot in Nurn and 1 in Seregost that are bad (invisible dead captain). Same spot in both zones with the same captain "Kruk the Sadistic". Those spots have been there for a long time (months ... can't remeber exactly when as I didn't notice them for awhile).

     

    I also had a spot in Minas Morgul that had and invisible captain that was not dead named Ronk the Untouchable (maybe because he's invisible? har har). So, I sent a follower to kill him and went to the mission start point. Ronk and my guy start fighting and I recruit Ronk over to team blue. Now Ronk is alive and my follower, but still invisible on the Army screen. I can move him around assuming I move another guy to him (not the other way around) and he stays invisible in his new spot. I can also try to command him, but when doing that is switches the zone over to Cirith Ungol. So, I tell him to kill a captain over there. At this point he is cloned and is now in both zones, but he is visible and seems fine in Cirith Ungol and still invisible in Minas Morgul.

     

    On the mission to kill that dude, he starts to bleed out. I let him die and resurrect him. Play around with him a bit send him on pit fight. His opponent kills him ... very sad as he was level 41ish with no fire weapon and Ronk was 60 (this was after the patch that made resurrecting such that it doesn't level down). But, whatever he is now gone in Cirith Ungol because his pit fight opponenet replaced him. BUT! in Minas Morgul he is still there ... invisible, but now dead and listed as Undead! So, it wasn't a clone ... Ronk's Cirith Ungol persona was still linked to his Minas Morgul persona. So I now have an invisible dead enemy captain in Seregost named Kruk the Sadistic. An invisible dead enemy captain in Nurn namded Kruk the Sadistic. Which because of what happened with Ronk I think both Kruks are the same guy. And an invisible dead friendly captain in Minas Morgul named Ronk the Untouchable.

     

    And it kind of sucks because I am afraid to deploy orcs from the garrison to those 3 zones because if the game picks that spot to deploy to ... poof, they are gone forever.

     

    Like Zugor of the White Hand ... a cool Mystic destroyer guy with those Saruman white hand prints all over him. I got him in Lithland, but because my fortress in Seregost is "Mystic themed" I tried to move him over there to be a Warchief. When deploying to Seregost I picked a different spot other than the "bad" one, but the game picked the bad one anyway and I watched it try to deploy him to that spot he is gone. BOOOOO!!!!

    I'm having same issue in PC. I've asked every websites including Korean websites but no one gave me a clear answer but resetting to a new game. Game itself is really epic but there's too many bugs. I hope Monolith knows that this bug still exists too.
