  • [Confirmed] March of Machines is centered around cast point instead of Tinker himself

    Dota 1:

    March always starts 900 units behind Tinker and travels 1800 units to 900 distance in front of him. Cast point only changes direction of march but not starting and ending position.

    As you can see march always ended on stairs no matter how I casted it.


    Dota 2:

    March is centered around cast point meaning that if you cast it on maximum range it will start 600 units behind Tinker and end 1200 units infront of him.

    As you can see march ending position was changed despite the fact that Tinker did not move.

    Thanks rockonrob for pointing some issues in march casting mechanism

    This bug was reported in early stages of the beta but was never given any attention.

        Stop comparing it to Dota 1. Dota 2 is the main game now, everything that you think is right in dota1 is wrong.

          You are wrong sir. Dota1 is still the main game till it dies.

            Just ignore him. He's probably trolling.

                Pro players have felt that march of machines works differently in Dota 2. I always collect those feelings and try to find a source of them.

                    Trolling like this will get you banned. Simple.


                    @OP Nice find.

                      This has always bugged me in Dota 2. Loved Tinker in Dota 1, but this March difference makes him feel quite different in Dota 2.

                        He is actually correct in that dota 2 is the main game now and that WC3 DotA is just a mimic of dota 2, just look at most mechanic changes, changed for the sake of dota 2, patches? Dota 2 gets them first, etc, etc, etc.

                          The only patch Dota 2 got first is 6.79

                            Dota 2 is still a different game, though this is nice found and it is up to dota-team to analyse what will be done. IMO

                              Oh, wow. And I almost always cast March away from the enemies, so that the machines spawn on top of them. It's a 33% nerf in that case.
