  • Delay on Dark Seer's ultimate

    Hi,

    since one of the recent versions, I noticed, that the pull/ultimate combo of Dark Seer doesn't go that well anymore, because the ultimate requires some time to be casted. Sometimes the ultimate pops up instantly, sometimes it takes up to 300 ms (I'd say).

    I'm pretty sure that there's no physical delay on the line (~30 ms).

    Did anyone of you notice the same?

    Cheers

    If you do not cancel his casting backswing after ulting and before using vaccuum, there will be a 1.07 second delay before the vaccuum takes effect (instead of his .4 second cast time). I have a feeling that's what is making it feel sluggish. You can issue a move command in between spells to eliminate the backcast.

    Including the reaction time required to cancel the backswing, the difference is about .4 to .5 seconds, which is what you are saying it feels like.

      Hm, I used to use vacuum before casting the ultimate (which worked way better). But since there's that delay (random from instant to 300 ms), I reversed the spell order (ultimate -> vacuum). I'll take a look at the moving thing, but I think i click between vacuum and the ultimate.

        Keep in mind that he has the backswing after casting any spell, not just after casting his ult. There are a couple other ways to cancel it as well, such as issuing a stop command, but I'm not familiar with all of them.

          But that cast animation backswing was there from the beginning if I'm not mistaken. And I noticed the delay thing short after they nerfed his ultimate the second time in a row (no illusions of friends anymore). I'll try to check my replays to investigate that issue further. It's just that Dark Seer isn't that much fun any more.

            This isn't a bug :P
            I've played a few Dark Seer games in the past few days, and I haven't noticed anything different about him though.
