  • [Confirmed] Primal Roar does not push the secondary units if they are aligned

    Well, this has a very low chance to occur in a normal game. Very low for heroes, but maybe happen like once every fifth~tenth game against creeps.
    Primal Roar should be pushing the secondary units away, opening the Beastmaster a free and empty path to directly head towards his target.
    Low chance, but this shouldn't happen.

    In DotA, in such a case, the unit will be pushed against left hand side of the Beastmaster. The formula can be seen there:
    if check is not fulfilled for zero angle difference, so it goes for the else, which pushes towards left

    It can either be a random direction in Dota 2, or just a predefined direction, doesn't really matter...

    ~ - ~ - ~ - ~ - ~ - ~ - ~ - ~ - ~ - ~ - ~ - ~ - ~ - ~ - ~ - ~ - ~

    Also, one more thing, I won't make a new thread for this one
    moderators may split it up into a new thread if they want, but I don't really think these two can be seperated:

    Primal Roar pushes the units ALONG the casting direction if the secondary unit is aligned with the Beastmaster and the targeted unit, AND the targeted unit was at least 920 units away... Why? I don't know...
    Let me list the conditions for this once again to make it clear:

    - Beastmaster, primary target and the secondary target must be aligned
    - the distance between the Beastmaster and the primary target must be greater than 920 units

    and if those two are fulfilled, the unit gets pushed along that line, towards the opposite direction where the Beastmaster is

    What should be happening is again that the unit must either should be pushed against left or right, the path shall be free'd.
    Whether it shall be made random or predefined doesn't matter

    These things might actually be happening regularly in games, but might be getting forgotten or unseen due to the heat of the action
