  • Lag Related Issue?

    This happened recently in one of my games:

    My friend did not pick a hero and the timer ran down to zero and he was still in hero select. An opponent crashed and we paused to let him reconnect. He reconnects but now my friend is unable to choose a hero. It will not accept his choice. He reconnects as well and then it lets him pick a hero however, it does not show in the scoreboards. It still shows him as no hero in scoreboard, in the top banner, and even we he kills someone, it says "Username (No Hero) has pwned Username." On the map, his hero is shown as that dark green icon usually associated with leavers (he was the blue slot originally so he was not supposed to be green) but I could not control him (which was good). I have usernames set to display over heroes, and his would not appear. At the post-game results, it defaulted his icon to Huskar with username "--" and some odd stats.

    I think this is some lag spike/crash bug related issue? It prompted a number of visual glitches so I put it here, hoping this is the best spot.
    Absence of evidence is not evidence of absence.
