    [Confirmed] Glimpse and Reincarnation/Aegis interaction is wrong

    Summary:

    If a hero being Glimpsed is sent to limbo as Glimpse animation is still travelling, the hero at the limbo comes back to life on the spot where he/she was. He/she should come back to life on the spot where he/she was being Glimpsed at.


    Reproduction Steps:
    1. Get a Disruptor with Glimpse
    2. Create an enemy Skeleton King with Reincarnation
    3. Make the Skeleton King walk a long path towards the Disruptor, 4 seconds of linear walk is the best
    4. Cast Glimpse upon Skeleton King
    5. Manage to kill him right after casting Glimpse, lower his health previously and get a Dagon if necessary
    6. Wait for the Skeleton King to Reincarnate


    Current Result:

    Skeleton King comes back to life on the spot where you killed him.


    Expected Result:

    Skeleton King should come back to life on the spot where he was being Glimpsed at.


    Aegis'd/Reincarnation'd death is not the same with a regular death.

    I am not sure about this one, but I think it happened to me once that I revived on the spot I would be If I would have not died; it's a long time ago, so I guess no replay.
    (using aegis)
    Maybe I had a delayed death, or I died at the moment of glimpse.

    Bump. I updated my previous post with videos.
    If you were unsure about whether this was happening as I described or not, this should remove the clouds.
    If you were unsure about whether this should be an intended change or a bug... Well, it is pretty much the same as Pudge's Hook anyway

    Thanks for the video, but I was pretty sure that this happened because I remember my enemy spamming on chat "bug wtf fix".
    Added to the sticky.

    The bug rather lies in reincarnation (and aegis). They will respawn you at the point where the grave is placed. Glimpse actually does move your corpse, so it's doing what it should correctly. It's just respawning moving you back, similar to how regular respawn moves you to your fountain.
    Please, just call me buny.
