  • Heroes now run back to base if their controlling player disconnects.
  • Fixed bug where units that have been affected by Jumping, Lifting (e.g. Vexie's Faerie Ring), Pulling (e.g. Beroth's Vine Grab), or Dashing (e.g. Slivus's Lethal Strike) may have been immune to skillshots.
  • Towers and wave minions can no longer target Wards.
  • Fixed UseAbility and Attack cursor states from allowing untargetable units to appear as valid. This was making selecting targets very confusing.
