After Nighthound Pounces sometimes he keeps attacking that target, sometimes he just sits there, waiting to fade. Is this a bug or just another one of those "mechanics" that some people say make the game take skill, but most people find simply annoying?
The keyword in the OP's post is "sometimes". He states that what NH does after a leap is unpredictable sometimes continuing attacking and sometimes just getting stuck.
Exactly I cant figure out what determines whether or not NH will continue to attack a pounced target. At first I thought he might aquire other enemy heroes or creeps with low hps as "auto attack targets" after a Pounce, but theres no rhyme or reason to it that I can see. THe only solution is to simply spam click the hero, which can get messy in huge team fights + creeps + everyone is moving...
-Animation canceling the pounce? It has a cast time of .3 secs, much faster than the latency of your game will allow.
