Me and a friend tried 8 times to start a MP campaign with me as Lu Bu and him as Sun Ce and it was so broken every time.
When I was playing as Lu Bu every single manually fought battle my "Momentum" stat didn't go up like it was supposed to. It would go up if we auto resolved battles.
Manual battles won vs Xiahou dun and Xiahou Yuan would not give me the prestige bonus for winning them. I would if I delegated the battles
The Liu Bei turning Lu Bu into a vassel event never went off any time either so I was always still at war with Cao Cao no matter what.
Then when my friend was Sun Ce the only event that went off for him was the one where Yuan Shu asks for the Imperial Seal on turn 2. He just starts with the generals he is supposed to get after taking the first city on turn 1.
The event to find Zhou Yu doesn't go off. He just randomly appears in your court.
Yuan Shu never asked for the city you take turn one for him.
And then the following early turn events to get Lu Fan, Lu Meng, Taishi Ci, and the Zhang brothers didn't go off either.
Hopefully, these things are fixed in the next patch.
