    [Confirmed] Glimpse Teleports a recently revive unit to their location before death

    Something I have noticed a while and doesn't seem to be reported, if you glimpse a unit that has just revived, it will teleport back to where they died before.

    Most likely it is related to the same thing that causes the Weaver Time Lapse Bug: http://dev.dota2.com/showthread.php?t=29820

    still not nearly as bad or as stupid as bloodstone/buyback revive placing you beside pudge if you died from the hook damage and bought back/revived before your corpse reached pudge

    No. I DotA1, when your hero dies and dissipates, it doesn't has any location.
    I Dota2 however, your hero stays at his death point the whole time, until he revives, which causes this bug with Glimpse.
    Please, just call me buny.

    Heroes dont dissipate (I mean they dont decay like normal corpses). They stay where they died.

    No, In DotA1, or general in WC3, the heroes dissipate (they turn transparent and dissapear). After a few seconds (differs from unit to unit, as it's adapted to the death and dissipate animation time), they are removed from the map, so they have no location.

    Also decaying and dissipating are 2 different things in WC3.

    Please don't spread false information and test it in wc3 first.

    It is working as intended, just like it does in Dota 1. It is not a bug!

    the question is whether this should work without recasting glympse on an instant revive (bloodstone) or rebuy.
