Boar lures, boars will stop following for no reason

Anyone who has played nomad knows that boar luring is a pivotal part of an good early game. However boar lures have become increasingly annoying (not sure if it was from this patch or from before) but the boars will lose aggro for no reason. Sometimes they would lose aggro after losing 1/5 of my villagers hp (loomed) sometimes when I’ve lost 3/5’s so I’m not exactly sure if it’s a distance thing. Also there are no objects blocking it’s path losing vision of my vill. It just stops following it for no reason, even though there’s a clear path. This has become increasing annoying considering you generally want to lure the boar with a full hp vill and losing 1/5 or 3/5 of your hp means you have to bring another vill to do it. Not to mention idle time wasted.

Hope devs can fix this issue because I’m getting increasingly tilted when I lose a lure for no random reason, after losing its lure 2 / 3 times in a row.

You are not the only one experiencing this issue, it has been reported a few times before. For example:

In the changelog of the anniversary patch, there is this note:

Fixed a rare issue where Boars could randomly stop chasing a unit after colliding with an obstruction.

So it seems they changed something. It might need further fine-tuning.

This issue has gone ten time worse since november update. It was actually rare before it. now this can happen a few times a game.

Please just revert whatever changes were made to boar aggro in the nov update. It was so much better before it.

You must just have stepped out of it’s LOS.

It happened to lot of us who play the game. It definitely is not related to LoS. I know boars will stop chasing if you get out of its LoS.

See this. https://www.reddit.com/r/aoe2/comments/k7lgkb/bugged_boar_lures_are_far_from_fixed/

2 recordings of games where this happened, clearly with no regard to LOS:

hey so I took a look at the replay at around 420 ish? the boar stop following with very little health that does look weird. you were definitely in the boar’s LOS, unless it has something to do with the sharp turn your villager took, it should not have stopped imo.

@CuboidTitan6883 it is related to LOS for the most part. I can reproduce it and not have boar chase me 99.99% of the time when it comes to getting LOS of the boar. there are maybe other factors involved which @BubblyMango3400 shown in his rec file, to say not LOS and applies that to all factor could be wrong as we havent seen any other rec yet.
