Has there been a change to air targetting re losing visual/radar

Had a game last night where I sent strat bombers across the map, targetted on an acu. Before they got there i think they lost visual/radar of the target. They ended up bombing the ground where the acu had been when targetted, though he had moved since. A complete fail of a bombing run lol

Has something happened to air keeping a target lock if visual/radar loses awareness of the target? I know it had been talked about a while ago...?

What is the replay id? It sounds likely that you ground fired, instead of locking on the target

That bug has always existed, I'm not sure exactly what causes it to happen. Very rarely an attack order you issue on a unit will turn into a ground attack order at that location. Most likely it does have something to do with losing intel on it.

Then I'd love that replay id @Serpentor , then we can investigate

Ugh, just rewatched it and it was my fault, i set the target as acu when very zoomed out and accidentally actually targetted a building beside him. Let's just pretend this thread never happened 😉

Well there is a bug that does the same thing, sometimes you try to target a lab with a tank and the tanks ends up getting a groundfire command on that location. It isn't really possible to do it on accident because you would have to specifically press the attack key to issue a groundfire command.

All gossip until I see a replay id 😉

Hey did you know that Jip wants the replay id?

The ground fire happens if you press attack on a unit just as it leaves ur vision

The embodiment of depression...

As I said, it was human error on my part which became clear upon watching the replay. Apologies for any concern I caused.


What is that @veteranashe ? 🙂
