  • Should Phoenix ult be deniable at 50% like a regular creep?

    Since the Phoenix ult isn't technically a hero unit I was recently accidentally denied by my own teams Faceless Void while ulting in his Chronosphere.
    He was trying to kill a unit below me but appeared to have force_right_click_attack on in his autoexec and hit me repeatedly instead.

    Is this intended? I know heroes have very different deny rules than the sub-50% health rules normal allied units have but I'm not sure how Dota 1 handles the egg.

    In w3DotA the supernova unit was treated as a ward (IIRC).

    Can't you deny wards?

      that's hilarious LOL

        i think u can... but i guess it's not necessary(only help trolls, cant think of any situation where denying the egg is good for the team)
        oh ya Linken is right... it allows u deny the enemy kill, but how often that would happen. i am not a pheonix player so i have no idea, but i think most of time it's better not try to deny it

          On the last hit only.
          And of course, for a ranged hero like CM, by the time the projectile hits the egg, it would be too late to deny your ally, and so she must begin her attack a little earlier.

            Battle Hunger on enemy hero... he tries to kill the Supernova... DENIED!
            Battle Hunger on allied hero... he tries to kill the Supernova... DENIED+Escape!

              Tried testing it in WC3, but with the auto attack thing, it was hard to do. I'll try testing a ward instead.


              • #8
                You can deny wards in WC3.

                  Nothing prevents allies from attacking the Sun in DotA 1.

                    ^When at 50%* ?
                    Please, just call me buny.

                      Yes, when under 50%. Note that it is coded to be strictly under 50%, so the Sun can't be denied whenever it is 5/10 HP (well...barring the error due to using floating-point division).

                        Supernova egg can be hit/denied by allies

                        You can deny Supernova'd Phoenix, not sure if it's intended, need someone to confirm
