I watched the Mandate of Heaven trailer again today because as much as I think MoH is broken, the trailer to the expansion has to be one of the best (Shivers, every time). I decided to play Lu Zhi because I like his unique units and, of course, Huangfu Song. But upon starting the campaign I noticed that Lu Zhi's background bonus is still the same as always; a mere 10% extra character experience faction-wide. Originally I thought it might be because of the mods I use, namely MTU and Guanxi Overhaul, but after disabling them and trying again, his background bonus had not changed.
I'll still end up playing with him because I, no matter what, apparently keep coming back to 182, but I'd like to see this bug fixed at some point.
This is running on the latest version of the game.
182 start date (naturally).
