I don't know if this is a bug report, hacking report or just really bad coincidence but this replay is weird AF. Now, I am playing bad here because I've underestimated my opponent, that's not the weird part - and I was probably going to lose without these things happening but.....

1. At about 16 minutes in, my glaives being to start changing targets somewhat randomly. Nothing major here, maybe this is just targetting AI being bad.

2. This is where it gets majorly suspect. At 20:35, slow down to 0.5 and watch the glaives in the south. I know that I am being chased by kodachi but want to raid his base by the back, so I am commanding the glaives to walk up the hill and nothing else. Multiple times during this walk-only operation, the glaives automatically decided to target, stop and walk into the kodachi (notices how the kodachi has a red line and ring selection around it). I cannot emphasize enough how I 100% did not do this. It was as though someone else was controlling the units.

3. I pause the game to complain about it. During this time I make a command to my thunderbirds to get back to base. At 20:07 on suddenly they're attack walking towards my enemy's territory and targetting a mex that I can't even SEE. Lucky for me I spotted this immediately.

This honestly feels and looks like someone else was controlling my units in order to sabotage what I was attempting to do. Anyone else think this is suspicious - or had this kind of crap happen to them before?

As a side note, for a map that is 0.1 wind at best, the wind is at between 1 and 2.1 for the first -8 minutes-, when it drops to 0.4 very briefly. Raghnaa went all wind, I went solar because of the displayed wind values on the wingen. Now, I know on average wind farms will make more energy, but this was an INSANE high wind start. Is this luck, map related or just normal and wind are suddenly amazing?

As a side note, these things sound like bugs with gadgets. There have been a lot of engine updates so it might be that some gadget isn't working exactly as it should anymore. At least that'd be much more likely than someone managing to trick a spring game into letting them control units and wind simulation.

At 20:35, where did you actually click? You ended up issuing an offmap order slightly the south of the map. This order was blocked.

You'll have to go into more detail about (1) as I did not see any problem. Your Glaives had a Chainsaw as their priority target, and you were moving them around so they went in and out of range. They shot at the Chainsaw when they could.

Do you have the time right for (3)?
