  • Ranged spells from heroes outside vision don't show

    I knew it was true for clockwerk's hookshot, but I noticed today that razor's plasma field doesn't show if razor is outside of the screen as he casts it. Perhaps it's true for a lot of ranged spells.

    I experimented a bit further and it only seems like this is true when Razor is below the screen. As long as his model is below the screen the plasma field won't show up, only to magically appear if you move the screen towards him.

      The following spells don't show if the hero is below the screen when it's casted:

      - Razor's plasma field
      - Razor's static link
      - Pudge's meat hook
      - Clockwerk's hookshot

      - Ursa's earthshock and Slardar's slithereen crush (likely all similar aoe "crushes")

      - Queen of Pain's scream of pain

      There might be more as I haven't tried all heroes, but the conclusion is that abilities that aren't based around some sort of projectile but rather just work with AOEs have this visual bug which is actually quite big as you might miss such things as meat hooks.

        Bump, this is a major bug in my opinion.

            Also, often towers' projectiles aren't shown when the camera is far away from the shooting unit (in this case the tower) but the unit being shot at is still in camera range. That results in the player seeing a unit losing hp without knowing the damage source (or rather its projectiles).

            I hope someone acknowledges this or else I'll have to create a new thread
