Default Hook cancel for Pudge


I am experience with cancelling animations for my heroes (e.g. raze cancelling, arrow cancelling) however, (and I have attempted to do this many times, failed) when butcher uses his meat hook all the commands on the bottom right turn black, stopping me from cancelling the most emabarrasing hook ever ):

I'm wondering why this only happens for meat hook and suggesting a fix if possible D:

I tried too. It seems you can't cancel hook for Pudge. Or I think you can if you do it early enough.

i tink i r xpirians dat tu. Pudge has a fast hook animation(maybe LOL), that's why if you want to cancel it, you should cancel it immediately cuz if you are too late you'll be doomed and laughed at and flamed by your team mates

Meat Hook is based on channel with a 0.4 second unstoppable follow-through time. This means Pudge cannot carry out any other orders while casting the hook or for the first 0.4 seconds after releasing it.

This was primarily added to nerf curved hooks.

Why did you feel the need to post this? There is no use for it whatsoever

A bit offtopic: Has anyone watching The International noticed if the Hook behaves the same way (curved, prolonging, always returning back to pudge regardless of position etc.)

If you want you can suggest it in the Suggestions section. I myself suggested it being fixed a while ago.

Actually it is impossible as EebstertheGreat said. Maybe an old version.

u cant cancel hook due to the nature of its base spell, channel, with enabled unstoppable option.
