Boar weird pathing and randomly losing aggro

  • GAME BUILD #: Current

:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

Boars when lured sometimes randomly stop following without losing line of sight.
Additionally boars sometimes will chose paths running around the towncenter in a manner that they will run out of line of sight, and thereby lose aggro. Both cases can be seen in the first 7 minutes of the attached replay.

:arrow_forward: FREQUENCY OF ISSUE

:point_down: How often does the issue occur? CHOSE ONE; DELETE THE REST!

  • Less than 25% of the time / matches I play (RARELY)

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

For boar randomly losing aggro while still being in line of sight: Unclear
For boar chosing weird paths around the tc:

  1. Shoot boar once with villager
  2. Run back to the TC
  3. run behind villagers gathering in a way the boar cant easily reach you.
  4. boar will run around the tc in order to reachthe villager it has aggroed, this will bring it to far away to keep line of sight and it will lose aggro.

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

:point_down: What was SUPPOSED to happen if the bug you encountered were not present?

Also experience this. The devs created this bug when they messed around with boar pathing last patch or a few patches ago.


yet another great dev addition to the many they have unintentionally made

same here. it used to be rare, but became quite common after the november patch. happens like 30% of the games, and usually either doesnt happen, or happens a few times a game
