  • Shackle shot visual glitch, lycan shackled to invis wolf caused 20 foot shackle

    A windrunner on my team shackle shotted a Lycanthrope that was running away. For our team, the shackle graphic appeared to link Lycanthrope to a tree that was opposite of the direction he should have been shackled, and it appeared to be about a screen long.

    I thought it might have been a gameplay bug with shackle, but then I watched the replay.

    As it turns out, the shackle hit one of his wolves that was running just in front of him but was invisible since it had not attacked. In the replay the graphic for shackle shot was working fine and did not bug out. I assume it had something to do with us not being able to see the wolf he was shackled to. Anyway it was odd to see.

    Yeah, happens to me a lot. Didn't watch the replays but I was assuming some invisible unit was hit by my shackle since it "latched" to something half a screen away and shortly after a riki appeared.
