  • [Fixed] Sniper acquisition range short of his max attack range

    Shown here with the 950 range circle around sniper, he won't auto attack until units get within the default 800 acquisition range, even though his range is 950. This makes any attack-move action with sniper cut off 150 range and have him walk to within 800 of the unit, making his recent buff pointless if you're trying to attack-move without clicking on the enemy creep/tower/hero.

    While I'm too lazy to get what the actual number is I can confirm his acquisition range is not his attack range + passive.

    Pick sniper
    Level up to 7, skill range bonus to 4
    Let waves spawn and walk to mid, try to position yourself where the creeps meet in the middle and be 900-950 range away from that
    Sniper doesn't auto-attack.
    Watch them get closer and he will start to auto-attack around 800-ish as Sunken says.

        This was noticeable just trying to auto attack towers before his range was buffed.

          His attack acquisition range was increased to 950
