  • [Confirmed] Pudge's Hook's starting position is slightly off

    It effectively starts right in front of the Pudge
    It should extend a little on his behind, too
    85 units center-to-center to be precise

    Hook in Dota 2 apparently has been coded to work like KotL's Illuminate or something like that.
    It looks like it starts off ~100+8 units in front of the Pudge, and then travels from that point on with the ~100+8 units of search range.
    In DotA, it starts exactly 40 units in front of the Pudge, and then travels with 125 units of search range.

    Because of this fact, Pudge can hit units that are 85 units behind the Pudge in DotA.
    In Dota 2, it cannot even hit the units that are 1 unit behind the Pudge
    Yeah, not even 1

    It should be capable of hitting units that are behind when they are really close, similar to how Jakiro's Ice Path can

    oh how lovely, even more ways for teammates to get in the way of a hook shot. stand right next to/behind Pudge. Ah well, facts are facts. Good find. You're on quite the Pudge streak today.

          Are people realy that mad of a hero that is never picked just because of two games?
          EDIT: Dont get me wrong: fix all the bugs. But don't get mad if a hero wins two games out of probably 500 pro games.

            I always assumed this was a fix, having the hook start behind him makes no sense


            • #7
              Well, if you search in circles and start with a lower distance then the search AOE, it makes sense

                  There is no reason for it to be an intended fix. This could be changed in Dota 1 by changing 1 number.
