Hey, don't know if this is known, but instead of paying for portal you can just disband all members of a party and then put them back in, and then you can choose where the team should spawn, i've tried this several times and it has worked 100% for me
This is working as intended.
You are the second person that posts this issue, thinking it's a bug/cheat.
It's possible to teleport your party for Free, from one teleport to another.
Note to dev : add the use of Teleport in the tutorial, instead of not using it in the tutorial.
That's pretty much it.
You can teleport when your are on a portal. The scout tells the player this in one of the first dialogues. Anyway, movement is a bit different in Epic Manager, but usually after a couple of turns it becomes quite clear and easy to use.
Let us know if you still have issues.
