  • [Confirmed] Creep aggro with Tower Denying

    Summary:

    In WC3 DotA attacking your own tower would force all enemy creeps to target the tower you are attempting to deny, this is not the case in Dota 2.

    Repro:

    1) Pick a hero
    2) Get your tower into deny range
    3) Start hitting your tower while there are enemy creeps near it

    Result:

    Creeps do not change target, and continue hitting whatever they were

    Expected Result:

    Creeps retarget to tower to attempt to stop you denying it

    I can post a video for this once I get a bit of time if people think it's necessary, but the repro should hopefully be good enough.

    Edit: Screw it, made the video anyway, here you go:

        its all about target's priority, not because some bugs in creep aggro.
        tower keep attack creeps, and furion doesnt, so tower is most dangerous, thats why creeps in wc3 start to hit it.
        in d2 no difference, any enemy, attacking or not, dangerous.

            It's probably the same mechanic that causes the tower to retarget when you attempt to deny your own creeps. However, it's not working for anything but towers so mm... Oh and also has anyone found that towers seem to retarget a lot easier in Dota 2 compared to 1? Like I swear the creeps had to be attacking the tower for it to work before, and now it works all the time
