  • [Discussion] Should Control Groups (hotkey) preserve across HotD dominated creeps?


    I played as Luna. I got HotD to stack ancients. I found a nice centaur neutral, dominated him, set him to Control Group 2 and put him to work.
    Then I came across a forest troll neutral, and decide he would do a better job of stacking for me.

    I dominate him and send him to ancients.

    Then, crap! I notice the time is :50. I hit 2 to select my dominated creep, and it doesn't work.

    point 1: should it work, like it does for Beastmaster animals where control group is preserved even when they are recast?

    point 2: should it only work if the new creep is the same species/type as old creep?

    point 3: should it (does it) work with en/chen/tress creeps?

    I'm for point 1. Since you can only have one dominated creep at a time, it makes sense to keep one hotkey for dominated creeps.
    Please, just call me buny.

      Yeah, 1) makes the most sense here.
      Please help keep the forums clean by reporting rude or abusive posts!

        Okay, does that mean this idea warrants a bug post? Or am I relegated to posting it in the black hole of Misc. suggestions?

          It's not a "bug" per se, so maybe misc is best, but the devs do occasionally look in here.
