    Hi.

    My wife and I did the Valley of the Kings yesterday and had real problems with OOS (Out Of Sync). We tried like 6-8 times and died early in most of them, but two of them we got to Age 4 and started push north-east (p1, Babylon) and north-west (p2, Celt).

    We have playes ALOT of coops and have 100Mb Fiber-internet and in general we don't have any problem, oos happens, but very rare. With this map it happened both times in about same time, not sure if we played 20 or 30 or more minutes, but we was just about as far both times.

    Often you can get oos and hit esc and still finish map and it's almost in sync (not completelly) anyhow - but this map it both seemed to happen more often and with more serious trouble - nothing was right. The other side died horribly to both and death was unavoidable, second time we managed to make it but had to do it 70% or so solo; now and then towers/castles appeard that the others built.

    Anyhow, this oos is very frustrating, and we've done VoK many times before with no OOS problem, so yesterday when we had it twice in about same time I got suspicious if it might be an problem that came with some patch? I dunno.

    Unfortunately I have those problems too on VoK and EMIC like 6 times on 10. SO far I don't understand why , since usually HUGE lags end in desynch, but for those two maps , even if it 's super smooth and lagg free, some of those desynch appears quite often.

    So Elite Meet In Crete is also extra much Out of Syncs in then? Seems as it was not just for us then with VoK at least. For us it was 2/2 that day (of the games we didn't die the first 15-20 mins).

    I noticed something. We just did VoK again but this time without any OOS. There was a "bug" each OOS game that COULD be a tell of something bad happening (unless it changed after the OOS). The top right enemy base guardian chest was bugged both OOS so there was houses placed above the guardians (so they litterary stood inside them). So if you do a Hidden Spy on this area early game and it looks like this I'd restart instantly.

    EDIT:
    Tested instant after start once now and realized that the houses isn't even built very early, so I guess it doesn't help if you check to early any how - but MIGHT if you do it a bit into map. Perhaps 10-15 mins is enough?

    We just did 2 more runs (after one successful) on VoK - game OOS after about 10 minutes both times, and 2x2 Heroic Aids WASTED this games due to that. As far as I know I can't get them without Winter Points?

    Make sure to restart AoEO if you get an OOS, usually it helps

    It's "same" and not. The EP version is an Age 3 and the one I talk about is Age 1. Makes all the difference for VoK (and almost anything).

    I find when playing with my friend that waiting 3-4 seconds on the game timer(f11) at the start avoid oos in most maps except vok where a whole 10 sec of waiting is required.
    While waiting those seconds we do nothing, no selecting units, no orders, no camera moving .. nothing except breathing. When we do that, we never get oos and when we don't it's very common.

    Intresting if true, and weird. But perhaps something the devs can use to figure out the reason for the OOS?
