  • [Summons] Resummons regroup control groups to all of the same unit

    Bug:
    When creating control sub-groups for summons (e.g. Familiars, Lycan Wolves, etc...), resummoning them will cause the control group to regroup all off the same unit to that group.
    In other words, suppose I set the below groups:

    1) Summon Familiars
    2) Set arbitrary control group [1] to Familiar 1 and group [2] to Familiar 2.
    3) Re-summon Familiars.
    4) Group [1] and also [2] will have all Familiars grouped in [1] and [2].


    Expected Interaction:
    1) Summon Familiars
    2) Set arbitrary control group [1] to Familiar 1 and group [2] to Familiar 2.
    3) Re-summon Familiars.
    4) Group [1] will have Familiar 1 and [2] will have Familiar 2.


    I've tested this with only Lycan and Visage. Both heroes have issues, so I assume this 're-grouping' bug is global.


    edit:
    Added quick video. It's bit hard to demonstrate, but focus on the Control Group 'numbers' in the Unit Selection bar, below. I swap between groups [4] and [5], which get remapped to all summon units after resummoning.

    Regression Defect:
    It looks like a small update was made to fix the 'individual' unit groups in Update 4.
    However, larger unit groups are now broken when resummoning.

    Repro 1:
    1) Summon Familiars
    2) Set control group [1] to Familiar 1 AND Familiar 2.
    3) Re-summon Familiars.
    4) Group [1] only have Familiar 1 selected (versus both).

    Repro 2:
    1) Summon Familiars
    2) Set control group [1] to Hero (Visage) AND Familiars 1 and 2.
    3) Re-summon Familiars.
    4) Group [1] will have Hero (Visage) and only Familiar 1 selected (versus Visage, Familiar 1, and Familiar 2).


    Expected Interaction, after resummons:
    Repro 1) Group [1] should have Familiar 1 and 2 grouped.
    Repro 2) Group [1] should have Hero (Visage), Familiar 1, and Familiar 2 grouped.


    Another quick video:
    For this, I have the following control groups, which I cycle through.
    You may notice that after I resummon, cycling through groups 1 - 5 have missing units in the group.



    Below are how I am grouping and cycling, in the demonstration.
    [1] Visage
    [2] Familiars 1 and 2
    [3] Visage + Familiars 1 and 2
    [4] Familiar 1
    [5] Familiar 2

      Summoned units are always a problem.

      I posted a suggestion a few months ago..
