I have had the same issue. Also lately I have noticed my reports and messages screens will fail to load properly if the page has been open for awhile. They will show up like they are empty. Reload, and it works fine.
So is it, just a way to slow us down, or is there a good reason why players can't relocate their nobles if they have academies built in the targeted villa...I understand, it just sucks! Or am I doing something wrong. The relocation option is new. might be missing something any help?
