  • [Intended?] Can't control homing missile

    Bug description: Homing missile from gyrocopter can't be controlled.

    Repro steps:

    1) Pick gyrocopter.
    2) Find a target.
    3) Cast homing missile into the target.
    4) Move fast.
    5) Select missile and attempt to move it.


    Result: The homing missile won't move.
    Expected: The homing missile will move in the direction you told it to move. When the missile is moved due to the triggered movement it should move correctly ignoring previous movements or displacements (except those by the triggered movement duh).


    Note: This prevents the player from confusing enemies by sending the missile in a wrong direction. In dota 1 you can move the missile a bit before it starts moving and then when it starts moving it returns to the original position.

      i'd say this is an intended fix.
      it's simply a characteristic of wc3 units, that nobody deemed worthy of fixing in the wc3 engine.
      is there any gameplay relevant effect (such as target faking) when moving the missile prior to the actual launch or is it just for shits and giggles?

        No point to fixing this. You chose a target and it goes for the intended target.

        I would say it was made like this intentially.

          Yes, you can fake the target by moving the missile before it actually starts moving by itself.

          Also it is fixable in dota by ensnaring the missile.

            i said, it's fixable, but for some reason it was left unfixed. i guess, because it didnt affect gameplay too much.

            did that "faking" ever get used in competetive play?

              Was Gyro ever used in competitive play? No he wasn't, thus I doubt any professional player is "competent" with him, on the other hand I've seen people do it sometimes on pubs and things like that from time to time (rarely but still...)

                  Zenith used him recently if I recall correctly. They laned a gyro vs. broodmother and maxed flak cannon. They brought down a sentry ward and were able to shred brood's spiderlings.
