Default Why do my berserk commanders disappear after winning fights

A few times now in the same game, I've had a very powerful commander go berserk and win a battle while the rest of his side routed. Two of those times, the commander disappeared after the battle, and thereafter it was as if he had been killed.

This happened, just now, for the second time. The enemy all routed or died, leaving only my commander on the field--but now on the map, some of those routed enemies are apparently still in the province they invaded and then routed from. They are besieging my fortress, and my great commander is no longer on the map. It seems as if my .trn file is broken--as if the battle replay it shows me isn't what "really" happened. What kind of awful bug is this? How can it be avoided?

He got killed. Deal with it.

How did he get killed? I think you don't know. I'm dealing with it by asking a question about it. Does anybody know the answer?

Sometimes battle replays are wrong, for whatever reason. There is no known workaround, other than asking your opponent if he saw an accurate replay, and getting him to tell you what happened.

I noticed this too in a recent game. I had completely routed and defeated the enemy and even won the battle (according to the message) but the enemy remained in actual control of the province on the map.

Today in replay I have 5 tigers and 1 cave dragon alive after battle. Cave dragon with 4 pts of life (he did a great job, keeping 3 grove guards 1 step from my mages for a few turns). After battle I had no him in my army, as well as less tigers.

Yeah the battle replay bug sucks. I had a battle in a game just recently where I killed a whole load of enemy stuff and both my thug and the support caster survived with ease. But the 'reality' is that both my guys died and very few of theirs did. Hard to see exactly what it was that could have differed so much from what I saw. Maybe a first turn soul slay?

After 75 rounds of combat all berserked attackers instantly die. If any defenders remained on the field (due to fatigue perhaps), they keep the province. This is not the case here, since you say you were defending, so it's the awful bug striking again unfortunately. But, maybe it was the case for the other battle.

I don't think so--in both cases, the field was cleared of enemies in the replay I saw. So I guess nobody should have reached the 75-round limit.

It sounds like dudes consider this to be just some random problem. I don't expect to figure it out myself, but still, it's suggestive that for me, this happened twice in the same game, in battles where a single berserker was the last defender standing....

One thing I would say is the random battle replay bug is WAAAY more common when mods or patch transitions are invovled.
