  • Kunkka's Tidebringer showing splash effects at some specific locations on the map

    Okay, today I randomed Kunkka. I failed to farm... with Kunkka. Got the first blood and the rest of the game was --it.
    ANYWAY, I am not here for that.
    And we won it anyway.

    I have realized that Tidebringer is showing up splashing effects on some specific locations of the map. The one I clearly remember is this one,
    which happens to be the very center of the map:

    Picture Roll! brought to you with the ThoAppelsin quality, with the click-to-enlarge feature.
    I checked some other spots that I remembered, too; but I couldn't reproduce it on those areas... Those others were appearing probably due to this other glitch:

    If somebody could confirm that this happens on their end, too; it would be nice. Since such minor issues can happen on individual ends with tiny faults on the files, this may be an issue that only happens on my end.

    Oh, I almost forgot. The visual effect shows up regardless of which direction you make your Tidebringer to cleave against. You can even be facing directly towards the opposite direction from the middle of the map.
    But, you have to be in a specific area around that spot. It is about 3000 AoE, but not really a circle, and also is not centered on that spot... It is weird, I don't know. Maybe hitting direction has some effect here, but I'm not sure.
    Here is a screenshot:
    (the area enclosed with white-ish line is just an approximation, and as you proc Tidebringer within that area, the splash effect appears in the middle of the map)

    The cross-units on the minimap are the ones that I could make the splash effect appear with, by hitting them with Kunkka's Tidebringer.

      My Picture Roll looks so good on W8 tablet... It seems revolutionary.
      I have reported what I experienced, I'll make further reports on this very thread in case I encounter more.

        Heavily confirmed. I play Kunkka a lot and I've seen tons of splash effects in the fog for no abvious reason. I wasn't able to find some similarities. Good job Appelsin.
        If you think I've closed or deleted a post unjustified, feel free to PM me and I'll explain it to you/discuss it with you further.

          I got this as well, man its pretty game breaking, it takes extra mental effort to note if someone is high ground with this phantom animation appearing.

          I wonder how many times I though 2 people were high ground, when it was just 1.

            Any news on the nature and eventual solving of this bug ? Kunkka is one of my most played and successful mid and this glitch really makes the laning harder when radiant. If you're not looking at the spot specifically it becomes really hard to tell if you got a fog hit or if it's just this bug.

              I've never seen this exactly as far as I remember, but I see something like it often. Invoker's Cold Snap is a common offender for me. There are several others but I forget them easily.
              I will mercilessly add to my ignore list anyone that makes an incredibly annoying signature.
