Known IssueBug: Shadow Legion upkeep reduction not working for all daemons

Grey0neGrey0ne Registered Users Posts: 4
The faction Shadow Legion for Chaos Warriors gets a 25% upkeep reduction for daemons.
This does not work for the Beast of Nurgle and the Plague Drones of Nurgle.

Also, getting negative Authority in an army seems to remove the 25% upkeep effect, not sure if this is intended.

v 2.1.2

    Hello @CA_Tama

    You do not need a save file. To "reproduce" the error ingame, do this:

    - start a new game, immortal empires, with the faction "shadow legion"
    - open the recruitment window for "gifted units" for your lord
    - check the upkeep values of the units

    For example:
    - The first unit is the "Bloodletters of Khorne". It has an upkeep of 142. This is correct because the normal upkeep is 200, this gets reduced by 25% because of the faction upkeep reduction, and by another 4% because the Lord starts with 2 points Khorne Authority.
    - Check the "Beast of Nurgle" ( second half, right after the shrines). It has normal an upkeep of 192(down from 200), which only includes the 4% for the Authority, but not the 25% for all demons.
    - Same goes for the "Plague Drones of Nurgle".

    I double checked all unit cards, the 25% upkeep is missing for:
    - Beast of Nurgle
    - Plague Drones of Nurgle
    - all the 4 exalted, upgradeble demons, meaning:
    - Exalted Daemonettes of Slanesh
    - Exalted Bloodletters of Khorne
    - Exalted Plaguebearers of Nurgle
    - Exalted Pink Horrors of Tzeentch

    - Another related upkeep bug might be for the normal Chaos Warshrine. Shrines are no demons, but the ones for the specific gods get upkeep reduction for points of Authority. The normal Chaos Warshrine does not get reduction for Undivided Authority.

    Also, scratch the second part of my original bug report, apparently this is correct behaviour with negative authority.
