1. creamation is about the number of the units the fire elemental has,not mine. if a fire elemental stack dies then there is an explosion,not mine. the visual of the cremation is there when you kill a fire elemtal but hte effect never takes place.
Yes, which is why it never does damage. Let me give you a concrete example to explain what I am saying. Let's say there is a stack of 10 fire elementals. You attack it, and kill 5 fire elementals, so the stack has 5 fire elementals left. You attack it again and kill the rest of the fire elementals.
Cremation triggers, you see the explosion and all that, but you don't see any damage. Why would this be so?
The question should be how many fire elementals are there when you destroyed the stack?
Clearly, there are 0 fire elementals, since you just destroyed the stack, so therefore the fire elemental's cremation will do <X damage> * 0 (number of fire elementals in stack), which would equal 0 damage. Therefore, no effect.

This is why I also mentioned that in order for cremation to work, they need to change how it triggers, if we are to assume it triggers like all the other skills. As you know, creature skills scale according to unit count. However, in cremation's case, unit count is always 0 when it triggers.

never thought of that! you actually make a point so they need to change the way it triggers! in other words it does not work correctly! thnx!

3. the altar of eternal servitude now works for some reason
i'm going to test the altar of ressurection too.

and something that is between a suggestion and bug, i don't know.
the health buffs are too low! amulet of health gives 3 health?? equipping two set aritfacts of the haven faction gives 1 HP???? i'm guessing they wanted it to work in another way meaning that when gaining 3 health didn't mean 3 points of health? i dunno but it seems funny that the health of a creature is 21 and then it becomes 22. what's the point?

4. Why am I still losing progress, Every time I end my game(quit to desktop) It syncs sometimes and others uplay crashes, but no matter what I am always brought back to a game I saved days ago! Very annoying...btw I live in cary, nc and think about knocking on your door for a refund!

5. Turn off syncing. It works very weirdly.

6. ok.. super annoying bug.. when being attacked (as opposed to attacking), the quick keys 'defend' - D, 'wait' - W, DO NOT WORK. plz fix!

7. ## save games

Hello

Is this a problem of save games compatibility ? :

I'm playing pirates campaign. Today, while i was playing the second map/scenario, the game stopped and launched automatically the update to 1.5.2.

Now i can't go back to where i stopped. Everytime i launch my autosave, the game shuts down before it completes the download (two thirds) and it brings me back to the uplay connecting page.
So I tried to restart the map from the beginning (through campaign menu) but it won't work either.

Thanks

8. ## save games

Same here!

I can´t load any game that was saved under version 1.5.1.

Please patch it so that the saves are compatible between version 1.5.1 and 1.5.2.

9. ## Saving bugs

Grrr

Because i couldn't get my games back (compatibility with 1.5.2 ?), i had to start over the whole pirate campaign, new save slots..etc.
But same problem. I can't open any new games i just saved 5 mn ago

GIVE ME BACK MY 9.99 DOLLARS

10. Correction :

i didnt start again the whole pirate campaign yet, "just" the 2nd map, ..annoying because i was reaching the end when bugs appeared.
But the game keeps crashing with my new save games.

So my only option appears to start the campaign from the very beginning. Map 1 and 2. Soooooooo boring. Money back. Thanks.
