painting tool & shift draw move orders doesn't work in mp battles.

the painting tool to give info to your allies doesn't draw anything.
when trying to shift draw a path for units the mouse doesn't issue any order and blocks itself until you unselect and select bak your troops again.

    both worked in my last mp battle. there was either a server issue at that time or maybe was it crossplay not working very well?

    it just happened again. in a FFA. the shift draw move order not working and freezing any new orders.

    it still happens often. it did not get fixed. its a big problem when you play with randoms and you cannot communicate with them. at least the ping work.

    I've had it happen too - like you said, randomly and inconsistently like most MP problems such as desync, games not starting, losing control of units... it is all very frustrating. Especially with the drawing tool - since we DONT HAVE CHAT, it is the only way to communicate, and it is unreliable.
