  • [Potential Bug] Can't attack Roshan from a specific spot

    Intro:
    Playing two different games (one as Windrunner: ID#12197614 and one as Dazzle: ID#12081679)* when standing in a specific spot just outside the pit on the Northern wall I was unable to attack Rosh. This included using spells (which then went on CD) but had no effect and simply not attacking regardless of how many times I a-clicked Rosh. I believe the spot is somewhere near the torch on the wall because, when I did a -wtf test with Mir she was unable to attack Rosh even when he walked out of the pit to attack her (see pic below). Has anyone else had this problem or could you explain why this would happen?

    *Note: I can't confirm these ID #s (they are my best guess) because replays are down and I played a lot of WR/Dazzle in the past two days :-(

    the whole area outside of the pit has the same properties. you can only attack roshan from inside the pit.
    simply to avoid, that roshan can be kited. since the areas are based on rectangulars, they might not match the exact geography of the pit.
    are you sure, that spot didnt exist in dota 1?

      You are outside of the pit on the picture. You can tell by the fog.

        Then why would my hero move into a spot where I can't attack Rosh if I a-click on him? This happened during a teamfight... perhaps this is the only area outside the pit where I still would have range (assuming it were possible to attack from outside the pit)?

          the heroes attack commands are very basic. the hero just walks into range of roshan and tries to attack. attacks on roshan are artificially prohibited from outside the pit. there is no smartmove or anything, this is exactly, what happens in dota 1 and it is VERY reliable.
          if however the area, you described does not exist in dota 1, this is a bug. if it does, then the thread can be closed and you can open a new thread for a suggested smart attack feature, which will immediately be stomped into the ground by experienced dota players.
