    [Confirmed] Pudge hook rotates the unit it hits. Especially annoying with Mirana

    Summary:
    Whenever a unit is hooked by Pudge, the unit is rotated to face in the direction that the hook is coming from.
    EX. M= Mirana. < or > indicates the direction mirana is facing. =-------- indicates hook. P indicates pudge.

    <M =-----------------P
    Mirana (M) is facing in left before being hit by Pudge's (P) hook.
    M> =--------P
    Mirana is rotated in the direction of pudge, so she is now facing him when she is done being pulled.

    Now when Mirana leaps, instead of leaping back in the direction she was facing, she now leaps forward over pudge, which many times results in Mirana leaping further into enemy territory instead of towards her own tower.

    Repro Steps:
    1) Pick pudge and skill hook.
    2) observe the facing of a unit before and after it is hooked, the unit will be facing pudge after being pulled towards him.

    Result:
    Units are rotated to face pudge after being dragged to him by his hook.

    While this may not be a huge problem for most heroes, it is very detrimental to Mirana when facing pudge, because normally she can semi-reliably escape from pudge after a hook by simply leaping away, but now you have to turn all the way around and then leap, and since the turn-around time is not instant, it gives pudge much more time to dismember before you can leap away.

    Expected Result:
    The unit that is hooked should maintain the direction they are facing, so when attempting to escape they dont have to waste time spinning their character around.

    While it doesn't make since logically (How does the hook spin them!), I think its intentional.

    Can u fix that? Very boring for me, because i play only Mirana. In dota1 Mirana was able to turn around during hooking.

    can i spin during meat hook?
    i am asking because not being able to face pudge would be detrimental to all disablers who currently might be able to hex/stun/etc pudge before he can disable.

    Well

    Atm its like you hook someone and he gets turned around to look at you if the hook hits him. If you dont move slightly off the spot you hooked he will be able to hex you as soon as he arrives so it doesnt really matter you can turn around because you are already turned around.

    Aswell as the mirana statement says if you hit leap during hook attachment you just leap in the direction you got hooked as soon as you reach pudge
