How is that not a bug? His health was brought to under 400 like description says exactly, and he wasn't killed..
In the same sentence you said it could be a bug and that it isn't a bug >_>
Examples of how his ult SHOULD work:
Accursed with 500 hp takes 200 damage. Nothing happens.
Accursed with 100 hp takes 9001 damage. He dies
Accursed with 100 hp takes 1 damage. Ultimate activates.
I've seen the bug you're talking about. The accursed was like wtf? then raged.
It happened to me as well yesterday.. and I was taking loads of non lethal damage (tanking a tower and getting attacked by a hero, no hard hits.. simply my healthbar slowly draining away). I am a 100% sure it was off cooldown.
If the mechanic is like than the description should be changed. But I'd bet a penny that it isn't supposed to need a hit when below 400... they would not have worded the skill description like that otherwise.
They changed it, and it's messing up sometimes from what it used to be. It used to be that it cast whenever you went below 400 hp. Now, it autocasts when you go below 400 hp, and take another hit that doesnt kill you.
Didnt watch the replay, but this could be the problem.
It needs to autocast when he drops under 400, not when he gets hit again
For those of you stating it should activate immediately after dropping below 400 think of the problem this creates. Take an accursed at 500 hp who gets nuked for 300. Does the nuke do 100 dmg then heal accursed for 200?
With the current setup, Accursed would potentially die if he gets back-to-back nuked pretty easily.
Say, 400 damage nuke puts him to 100HP, he then gets hit by a 150 nuke. No ult, dead accursed.
Replay of me getting auto attacked to death as accursed.
Happens at ~38:00
Malikens sword throw hits me down to 170.
Maliken Transforms and proceeds to hit me twice more for the kill.

Watching the replay will some all of this up. Im not going to watch it again to give exact numbers. But say i had 600 HP. Luna was the only hero attacking me and my teammate pest. She uses her ultimate. Hits me 1 time and takes me to around 350 hp? and another time to take me down to 25? And last hit was auto attack for the kill. I was busy trying to heal my pest and shield him instead of pressing my ult when i should have went off automatically.
Moved to mechanics
if you didn't watch the replay accursed is at 500 ish health moon queen ults him bring him to 300ish the second hit takes him to 10 then he dies on the 3ed hit.

I went back int o watch it becuase others are too lazy to do it as well. So heres the numbers for you.
First ult hit. I had 459 down to 234. Next beam hits me down to 10 hp. Then auto attack to finish me off. Ult did not work as intended.
This is reproducible; for some reason, this property is only restricted to Moon Queen and her ultimate not triggering Accursed's Ultimate. I tested with a few other spells (not all of them though, someone else feel free to test more spells that has this behavior).
By glancing at the code, I'm suspecting it may have something to do with Moon Queen's ultimate not triggering the <onattackeddamageevent> portion of the code.
