  • Pudge Hook Latch Too Big?

    When pudge throws his hook the latch radius is inexplicably large enough to go around creeps and pull a hero through creeps to pudge. What It looks like is happening is hook starts in one path, misses targets because the hook is traveling, but at the end it grows in size to hook a target behind creeps. I am going to go test this and report back (maybe with video) but for now the effect can be seen here:

    Replay #: 218151924

    Replay Time: 0:10:45 (watch at 0.25 to see the effect)

    What to Watch for: Mid Lane, Watch Zeus get hooked through creeps due to this enlarging effect it seems.

    Note: If I am wrong about how hook works please let me know. Thanks!

    did the hook pass a ramp or slope?

      Yes, but the line was move farther away from the hero which is interesting. I was able to reproduce it in a bot game, but I don't have any footage. It looks as if the hook (if it touches the circle of the unit) goes past the unit, themn loops back to preform the may just be animation, but it looks really off...
