My friend and I have been playing WH1 for a while and have recently moved over to play WH2. We have been playing for about 5-6 hours now with me (host) playing as Lothern and him playing as Loremasters. Whenever I play a battle it is fine, but whenever he initiates a battle, we both load in and are stuck on the waiting for other players to load screen. So far we have compensated by him sending overwhelming forces to a battle to autoresolve it, or encircling and making them attack him. But this strategy does not work for him to do his quest battles and now we are stuck.
-Any battle he (loremasters) initiates

Details of any solutions that have already been attempted:
Tried verifying cache
Tried Sending save game files
Tried swapping hosts
Tried reinstalling game
Tried deleting all other save game files
Please attach .replay for Battles or both .save_multiplayers from host and client for Campaign.
both save games are identical (as sent mine to him after tried clean wipe)
