The freqency was so HUGE. It always happened once in 3-4 games.

  • 50% of the time / matches I play (FREQUENTLY)

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

:point_down: List CLEAR and DETAILED STEPS we can take to reproduce the issue ourselves… Be descriptive!

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. I clicked tower to attack villager
  2. but It won’t attack
  3. then Tower attacked mangonel

:arrow_forward: EXPECTED RESULT

It was not about angles, In this game You will see that again with different angles too. Villager and mangonel were located at side by side, It still won’t attacked the villager. so, This is not about mangonel shielding for villager.

Thanks !

It thinks it’s actually that the mangonel is tanking the shot, and taking the damage instead of the vil.

In this game, It will do that again and again with different angles too. Vil and mangonel were located at side by side, It still won’t attacked the vil. (look at record game time:32:00 mins) The freqency was so HUGE too. It always happened once in 3-4 games. You can watch the record on my side with view lock option.

Ok, that’s a bug then if it’s behaving like that.

Hi there, attention ! It happened it again 3-4 hours ago. Please need to solution for it.

It’s been a known ‘feature’ for a very long time now. One of the reasons why towers aren’t that effective vs mangonels any more. ;p
