  • Pudge Meat Hook tooltip is misleading in targeting type

    Meat Hook says "Launches a bloody hook at a unit or location", which sounds like dual targeting, but Meat Hook cannot target units. This should be clarified as "Launches a bloody hook at a location" or, even more accurately, "Launches a bloody hook toward the targeted direction".

    It seems pretty accurate as it is to me. It might mislead a player who has read up extensively on game mechanics (actually not even) and tried pudge for the first time, but would quickly realize it is a skillshot.

    "At" and "towards" in this case almost mean exactly the same thing. The only difference would be that "towards" indicates that is pretty likely that the hook will never make it that far, but "at" does not rule out that possibility at all.
    Many tooltips are misleading, hell, take Gyrocopter for example, lol.
