  • [Intended] Ancient Dragons do not fly

    I searched the forum but didnt see any topic on this, sorry if it has already been said.
    The ancient neutral Dragon are flying above the tree in dota1, which allows you to pull them to T1 tower bot in dire (when using beastmaster axes e.g.).
    In Dota2, they follow the normal path instead of coming over the trees, and are even blocked by other neutrals.
    Is it intended, is it worked on, is it known?
    Thx

      There are no flying units in DotA 2. It is one of the reasons Batrider sees so little play in competitive DotA 2.

        What?? Bat is a flying unit in firefly form. He can fly over everything and has flying vision.
        Also don't forget flying courier..
        Please, just call me buny.

            Dire already have too much advantage. They can pull from 3 neutral camps in top lane, and in some scenarios they can pull the ancient creeps in bot lane!

              The only thing that has changed with flying units in Dota 2 is that they can be targeted by all spells (courier aside, of course), while in Dota 1 you couldn't hit them with things like frostbite because of some hardcoding.

                ^a yeah remember that, bat was a nightmare for cm...
                Whatever, the dragon should be flying over the trees as well as the harpies, and they're not doing it.

                  Ancient Dragons do not fly

                  The Ancient Dragons which spawn at the Ancient Neutral camps are flying units in DotA. This means they can fly over obstacles like cliffs or trees and have flying vision.
                  In Dota2 the Dragons appear like they fly (their animation) but are in fact ground units. They cannot fly over obstacles.

                  Repro: Pull the dragons and run around some treees. In DotA the Dragons will fly over, in DotA2 not, they will go around (like a ground unit).

                  The Dragons should be flying like in DotA as it is intended for them to fly, otherwise they would be ground units in DotA.

                    Think this one might be intended, there's no flying unit type (which fixes a lot of odd things with Batrider's Firefly)?

                        I'd like them to be flying again as well. They are rare units, it's not bad to have some rare characteristics.

                          @#2 & #3: What the hell? How can it be even remotely closed to intended? They could "fix" everything they fixed in dota 2 in dota by making them ground units, yet it is not done so they actually keep flying, it makes no sense that they don't fly, this is a bug and should be fixed.

                            The removal of flying unit type is an intended change. It's why you can now Frostbite Batrider, cleave flying units and the rest of them. I suspect that the reason units in Dota 1 are marked as flying despite these bugs is because there's no easy way to give them flying behaviour without marking them as flying type.

                            With that in mind, I said that it's possible this is an intended change. It might just have been overlooked, but it does seem unlikely that nobody at Valve realised the dragons fly while adding them to the game. It'd be good to see a dev comment on this though.
