Default Multiplayer enemy turn skipped?

I am in a multiplayer game and as far as I can tell the other player isn't doing anything on their turn. I can't find them on Steam to ask them (probably due to their privacy settings) but I am worried this is maybe a bug. Is there anyway to confirm this?

There's really no good way to confirm it. What I have found is things can get out of sync. You can exit to the main menu and see if the game prompts you for your turn, but I have been having issues with the get getting wonky when you do that, so exit at your own risk (but it is really the only option you have other than waiting it out).

Might be me? Same username on Steam. It was, in fact, skipping my turns, and at least one GEV movement phase. I'd load up my turn on the alert, and it would say it was your turn. It also put my dialog box for reinforcements BEHIND an unclickable "opponent's turn" box. Not to sour grape about getting wrecked, but my side of that game was literally unplayable for most of the game.

This seems to have been what happened- it was getting stuck on enemy phases, so I jumped out to the menu, and then Everything Got Ruined.

Or they are skipping their turns on purpose, who knows. Notably the matchmaker did pair me again with the same player and they are definitely fighting in the other game.

Remember, please send bug reports if you are experiencing this issue. We need to get as much data as possible to Auroch to squash this one fast. :-(

We played Train (I'm selenite1 or karl.gallagher on Steam). Were you having those problems there? From my end you were having reasonable turn times until the very end.
