    [Confirmed] Charge of Darkness reveals invisible units

    It happened at this patch, when a hero get charged, he turn invisible, he gets revealed, and the enemies can click on him.. I'm sure that in Dota1, CoD does not reveal invisible, so this is a bug.
    Game id btw: 34904227
    It happened at min 13, top lane, barathum charged PL.
    Edit: Here is a screenshot taken from another game by Typhox:

    It is not a bug .

    Revealing
    Truesight:
    - A unit hit by Ensnare or Entangle that activates any form of invis will not pass the fade time phase.
    - Charge of Darkness (as long as the target is being charged), Strygwyr's Thirst and Assassinate will let you see the target on the minimap if he goes invisible, however you will not be able to directly target them, autoattacking or move-attack to their relative position will result in a normal attack.
    - Skills based on Faerie Fire (Track, Amplify Damage) will reveal the target unit if it goes invisible

    I don't know why you would say this isn't a bug.

    Charge of darkness hasn't fully revealed invisible units in months.

    EDIT: I'd prefer a time otherwise I don't have the urge to watch that entire replay for this bug.

    haha it used to be so a year ago. Before when enemy dropped past 44% u could see them on minimap, as stryg, walk to the place they should be, and your hero would just autoattack air, resulting in enemies death, I miss that <3

    About min 13, top lane.
    dota2://matchid=34904227&matchtime=780
    If you watch it as the player respective (Visage, me), you'll see i can ping PL even when he is invisibled, while under Bara's charge.

    No. i mean, in Dota1, if you charge one target, and he goes invi, you can't see him or click on him, you'll just charge into his position.

    Sadly, my dota 2 needs to update so I can't watch it. Someone who actually knows what they are talking about will probably wake up and confirm this soon. Unless there was something actually giving true sight.

    You see a special sign above his head in wc3, seeing a hero silhouette doesn't make any difference, you do know where he is anyway

    Checked replay, not a bug
