Players in Dota 2 have stumbled upon a Phantom Lancer bug that allows them to block a neutral creep camp for the entire duration of the match. This glitch occurs when the hero is positioned within the camp and receives the Aghanim's Shard. A video showcasing the bug has been shared on YouTube.
Reddit users are speculating that as a result of this bug, Phantom Lancer may become a more frequent pick for the fifth position in team compositions. Some jestingly suggest that the developers might need a bit more time to address all the issues in the Dota beta version.
As of now, the Phantom Lancer vulnerability has not been included in the bug tracker on GitHub, which already has over 11,000 open bug reports. Developers have already tackled 3,000 issues using the bug tracking service.
In a previous instance, Romanian esports player w33 expressed dissatisfaction with an increase in cheaters in ranked matchmaking. According to him, encounters with cheaters happen in every other game. It is presumed that the player is referring to users of the Overwolf program, which provides additional information about opponents.
