edited June 2016 in Campaign & Battle Bugs
Recently, I have had a few battles in campaign as various factions (empire, vampires, dwarves tested) where the map in the top right will not update where the field of view is, or will have none on it. I will march to where enemies are coming from (ie, on the flank) and will rush their spot, only to have them magically appear mid attack animation on my troops. I had this issue since purchase on day one, and am currently using Build V1.0.0. This is critical for campaign battles where i go in outnumbered and typically 'losing'. Replays, however, show proper sights, and can not illustrate the problem at hand. Attached are some images of two such issues.

First is one showing that the whole map is visible, yet no enemies present. It took about 20 minutes of a 60 minute game before we stumbled across one another. Also see how all of my units are hidden.

Second shows enemies in 'dark' spots on the map, yet I can clearly see they are there.

    Yup totally ruined my Dwarf campaign with empire friend a fair amount of time in, us both having ranged dependent factions going against late game chaos and vampire counts with brutal mele units teleporting into us has prompted us to abandon it, it has left a very sour taste in my mouth.
