Epic 0 damage Jesters

Got a game with my friend and had this ridiculous bug

2-3 Jesters shooting sera ACU for about 10-20 seconds and clearly have intervals when their shots make no damage at all

Where did you get that the DPS for a jester is 50? According to the unit DB, it's zero. Which explains everything.

From watching the replay: when shots connect, they deal damage appropriately.

Most of the shots are missing. They're hitting the ground next to the ACU's feet. So the problem has to do with jesters' targeting logic or their movement, if they're not in the right place when they fire maybe that's why they're missing.

No, you're wrong here
Shots are connected and still do 0 damage

I've literally never seen something like that before... that's really unfortunate but I'm also super interested in how something like this could happen? Is this a bug?

@zeldafanboy yes, this is a bug
aoe-damage from units is happens 1 tick after the collision
in this case - collision happens, and in the next tick ACU is no more in the AOE (because the damage area has tiny 0.15 radius in that case, ACU speed is 0.17 per tick, so he's already not in the radius and takes no damage)

they were missing quite a lot,that's why,i think killing t1 pds had also to do with it

it's was added to decrease jester shots miss count... ironic

now range of damage will be incresed from 0.15 to 0.4
fast targets (scouts, labs, blazes) still can evade in some conditions, but overall that's ok
