So in general units do not retarget unless their current target is destroyed or the are pushed by a Mech Fortress or Hive Worm. The lightning walker however will instantly retarget if it’s attacking a barrier and you drop units next to it it will instantly retarget the closer unit. Is this intentional or is it a bug? If intentional it should be stated somewhere.
As far as I know, Lightning Walker should only change his target if he is “bumped.” Dropping units on top of him and “bumping” him?
It retargets without the bump. I double checked it in replay. You can check the replay my against Koeieman2007 2019-10-31 6:34:14.
Any follow up on this? Is it a bug?
THIS would explain why lightning walkers annoy me more than they should
My Lighting Walkers usually have the shakes real bad or it’s some kinda of funky dance move as it moves down the lane.
Lol that would be a no. You don’t get a follow-up apparently
If you’re seeing the Lightning Walker change targets without being bumped, then it is a bug. This is the first time we’ve heard someone bring it up after many millions of games using Lightning Walkers. How often is it coming up? Is anyone else experiencing this problem on a regular basis?
I really could care less about it. Don’t fix it because it’s the funniest thing to watch in the whole game.
As far as I can tell it always happens. I think it was never brought up before because no one realized it wasn’t supposed to happen.
I just had a dragonfly do the same thing it was attacking the barricade and it turned and attacked grunts that I dropped next to it to kill it before the barricade went down.
I think roxie does the same. If she is attacking the barrier and u drop an unit close to her, she targets the unit.
Yeah, I think Roxie has always done that. She retargets constantly as far as I can tell, so that her fire is randomly directed. It’s good and bad because if there are enough high HP units in the area, she’s not very effective at clearing them (unless you hit them with bombing run).
