:arrow_forward: ISSUE

This small bug will not affect most players, but I noticed it while using a custom AI. Taunts sent by AI players are displayed incorrectly in the game. The first “1” is stripped from the text, so: “11” becomes “1”, “176” becomes “76”, etc.

That is:

(chat-to-allies “11 Hello”)
(chat-to-allies “17 Hello”)
(chat-to-allies “176 Hello”)

will be displayed in the game as:

“1 Hello”
“7 Hello”
“76 Hello”

This will break AI’s that depend on taunts for communication in team games. For example:

(taunt-detected any-computer-ally 176)

will not work anymore. I believe this issue was introduced in May’s patch.
