encountered on Playstest 20191021, Red Alert mod.

case A: if a unit witnesses enemy spy assuming friendly disguise - they lose ability to target anything else until that spy stops existing.
case B: if a unit tries to attack and doesn't kill something - they will chase the target forever and will ignore other units even if target is not visible and those other units attack the chasing unit.

test map:
for both cases chose spawn A, start the game

case A:

  • select any spy
  • move them into enemy tank's attack range until the tank starts turning to face them
  • "attack" a mechanic in the bottom right corner of the map
  • the disguised spy needs to stay alive for the bug to happen
  • now moving any other targetable unit into the range of a unit that tried to attack the spy will not trigger any kind of response from that unit until the spy is dead or consumed.

case B:

  • take a plane and move it east until a mammoth tank tries to target it
  • fly a plane out of vision range and behind some friendly units nearby
  • mammoth tank will now chase the plane, ignoring any other units that gets into it's range or also attack it.

one more thing: turning invisible - tested with a phase transport against medium tank - doesn't cause the same issues as a disguising spy does.
