  • [BUG] Random not assigning hero

    At the hero select for all pick I opted to random. However, the random did not assign me a hero, yet it locked me out of picking and the only option was to repick. I randomed after the hero pick timer, so that may have been the issue.

    something similar happened to me today. i randomed as soon as hero select screen showed up but wasnt assigned a hero and the random button turned into the repick button as usual. i was able to get the random button to show up again if i left clicked a different hero but still wasnt able to random

    i tried random > repick > random to see if it would fix it but it didnt. when i finally chose a hero, i started with gold loss that happens after repicking

        Cannot repro.

        To the first two posters, are you certain that you did not accidentally click random twice? Since the random button is replaced by the repick button, you might have clicked twice, resulting in a repick immediately after you randomed a hero.

        Moved to brainstorming until someone can verify this and produce repro steps.
        Always read and follow the forum rules. If you need help from a moderator, use the report button ()
        Before posting new bugs:
        -Check the Known Bugs List and search the forum for an existing report.
        -Make sure its a bug (test in WC3 Dota, visit playdota guides and adv. mech, etc). If you're still not sure, post in Mechanics and Gameplay Bug Brainstorming instead.
        -Read the Bug Posting Guidelines on how to report a bug properly.

          It's only possible to re-pick once. OP said he re-picked after the bug occurred as the only way to be able to pick a hero.

          To brainstorming... is it possible that yet to be implemented heroes are in the random pool, resulting in a blank pick perhaps? Unlikely I guess, or this would happen more often.

            I didn't test it in Matchmaking, so see it as Semi-Confirmed.
            If you doubleclick the random button very fast while the time is already over, you will return to the pick screen, but the Random button will be without effect from now on (if you click it, it will change to Repick without actually giving you a hero^^)

              I have had the same experience as the above, there is an issue with my mouse that tends to make it double-click at times. Since the "latest" patch I am also notified that "Frenzy has randomed No hero".
