Unable to Attack in 2HG
I was introducing the game to a friend last night and while we didn't have any problem playing 1v1, when we played as a team against the AI or 2HG -- our attack phase kept getting passed up. The platform would blip and it was the AI's turn. I think we got one attack in out of 2 games before quitting that format.

I played this the other day with someone in the U.S. (as myself) and it worked. My aforementioned friend is in the U.K. -- is this a latency problem then? or a general bug or are people even having an issue with this?

I know people have mentioned bugs in MP but I didn't see this particular issue mentioned.

Even if you don't have a solution I want to confirm this is a bug or network issue and not user error before digging deeper. I'm certain he wasn't hitting the timer so not sure what else we could have been doing wrong.

Thanks in advance.

TL;DR Is 2HG working for other people just fine? I'd like to know if my friend can play this -- just sold him on the game -- or if it's a waste of time to isolate the problem due to timeouts or whatnot?

It's hard to say if this is due to a bug or poorly thought out implementation of the timer. Maybe it's a little of both. I was playing with a friend and we had similar issues with phases being skipped, but the lack of feedback from the game made it difficult to tell what we were doing wrong, if anything.

Thank you Stephie for responding. At least that tells me I'm not alone in this experience. I might try a couple things with my friend's time settings (esp. if he changed them) and if I make any progress I"ll let ya'all know.
