    [Confirmed] Denies, suicides and death to neutrals not working properly

    Summary:

    Alright, so we all know that there's a radius around enemy deaths that gives gold and XP bonus. This works properly when players are killed by other players or by their faction but doesn't work appropriately when they die to any other source.

    Repro:

    1) Pick any hero and spawn an enemy pudge (or any other hero capable of suicide)
    2) get the enemy hero to kill themself near you

    Result:

    No XP, no gold for suicides and denies, only gold given for death to neutrals.

    Expected result:

    Gold based upon the following table:

    1 Hero: 12*LevelOfDyingHero + 125
    2 Heroes: 10*LevelOfDyingHero + 40
    3 Heroes: 10+6*LevelOfDyingHero *** May be incorrect (inconsistent with Playdota gold mechanics page, but not listed in changelog)
    4 or 5 Heroes: 6*LevelOfDyingHero

    http://www.playdota.com/mechanics/Gold

    and XP based upon the following table:

    1 Hero: 120+20*LevelOfDyingHero
    2 Heroes: 90+15*LevelOfDyingHero
    3 Heroes: 30+7*LevelOfDyingHero
    4 Heroes: 15+6*LevelOfDyingHero
    5 Heroes: 10+5*LevelOfDyingHero

    IDK, it's a pretty huge change for them to make unannounced, large indirect buff to pudge, TECHIES (huge, huge buff) and a few others... I honestly think oversight, especially because HALF of the death to neutrals works as expected...

    You get NOTHING if they suicide or get denied (0 xp, 0 gold no matter how close or far), and you only get gold when they die to neutrals, based on the tables I provided (from playdota) (0 xp, 137 gold for 1 hero in 1000 radius of the lvl 1 enemy's death)

    So it is inconsistent in itself anyway.

    ^I am going to bed. If no one confirms/makes a video for me I'll do it in the morning. The "assist" gold (proximity gold really) and experience are still given, but no bounty from getting the actual kill is given. But it's still a substantial difference.

    Heroes that are in a 1000 area and not being the killer will be granted a certain amount of reliable gold, depending on total heroes in that area.


    • 1 Hero: 95+9*LevelOfDyingHero
    • 2 Heroes: 20+8*LevelOfDyingHero
    • 3 Heroes: 10+6*LevelOfDyingHero
    • 4 or 5 Heroes: 6*LevelOfDyingHero

    Assists only give gold if Sentinel or Scourge gets the kill.
    what about the last line?

    The gold is NOT related to assists. That is just saying that regardless of whether or not you actually damage the hero you will get gold and XP for being in the radius. It is referring to when the gold is split for a sentinel (radiant) / scourge (dire) kill. I.e. player 1 and player 2 each deal damage to grant an assist to player 7 [enemy] who then dies to the scourge. Both get assists, and the gold is split evenly to those 2 heroes, both still recieve the bonus gold/xp for being in the 1000 radius.

    The page is EMPHASISING that assists do not USUALLY grant gold. (so creeps MUST get the last hit for the stat recorded as an assist to give you any gold at all, otherwise it is independant).
