  • [Fixed] Berserker's Call cancelling Duel prematurely

    game: 423626756
    time: 31:17

  • #2
    I believe the OP is reporting that the duel started by Legion Commander against Bristleback ended prematurely. I've found the cause. [Edit: the original topic title was less informative. ]

    Summary / Result

    When a hero is under the effect of Axe's Berserker's Call (his taunt), when that effect ends, any duel the hero was involved in (due to Legion Commander's ultimate) also ends.

    Reproduction

    There are a number of ways to reproduce this. It works whether Axe is allied to Legion Commander and is using taunt on the opponent, or Axe is an enemy of LC and is using taunt on her (while she duels someone else).

    To reproduce, it's easiest if LC has a level 3 ultimate and Axe has just 1 level in Berserker's Call. The point is that his taunt must end during the duel.

    Expected Result

    Well, I don't know the Dota 1 interaction. Perhaps in Dota 2, when Axe's taunt ends, the game thinks "I should give the target control of his character again", which interferes with the duel.

      In DotA1, they both work at the same time. The affected units gets an order to attack LC and an order to attack Axe. This means it just doesnt attack anyone at all, since the one order cancels the other. But none of them makes the other spell end prematurely. If call ends before duel, the affected target will attack LC again for the remaining duration and vice versa.

      Imo the best solution would be to take it over like how it is in DotA1, make both spells' debuff stay for their duration, but prioritize Duel (since it's an ultimate), so the target attacks LC. If Duel ends before call, the target will attack Axe for the remaining duration and vice versa.
      Please, just call me buny.

        No, that would be unfair for Axe if he is going to save his teammate by aggroing LC. I believe the debuff last applied should take priority.

          thats not correct. they both are seperate instances yes but the target affected by both spells does more then standing still and not attacking:

          it does in fact switch between targets if possible, etc. the outcome is not always the same (depending on attackspeed, spell cast etc)

            as far I know, duel is stronger than call of axe. Duel enemy is always prioritized. Thats from my wc3 expewrience back then
