View Full Version : My hero is changing his target!!!

Consider this scenario:
My hero is attacking unit A,
Unit B engages (A is still alive and attackable)
My hero starts attacking B ARBITARILY!!!
This automation is stupid, at least make it optional if still keeping it!

I agree. If i use an ability on a unit, it should automatically assign that unit as the next attack command.
For example, plenty of times I've used Pyromancer's Ult and then arbitrarily auto attacked a nearby creep or what have you and missed the kill on a hero I just nuked down.
I think all "offensive single target" abilities should priorities that target as your next "attack" target.

Thats exactly how attackmove works (targeting attack command on the ground or just standing near enemies without hold position)
if you attack a specific target, you will not change targets unless you lose line of sight, get disabled or cast a spell

Right, but if I use Predator's Charge ability on a hero, I shouldn't just autoattack a nearby creep at the end. I should be set to auto attack that slowed hero. Instead, autoattack does it's own thing, and so I have to right click the hero after I pounce them.

I've noticed several times of heroes ignoring commands and 1) stop running to attack a chasing creep from behind, 2) stop attacking a target and attack a different one despite no loss of sight or new order made (even after forced attack on set target).
The first one seems to happen when there's some kind of lag, but it's not visual like it usually is (where animations also repeat themselves endlessly til it stops) but the hero just ignores further commands and does his own thing.. I dunno but it is immensely annoying as it really feels like either someone else is controlling your hero or it's just ignoring your commands.
