I had an unpleasant experience today where a player used Mannfred on a zombie dragon and did what I consider an exploit/bug.
The player was doing free damage to ground units without the opportunity for retaliation attacks. He had killed 2-3 units and charges/damage routed a couple others.
The player would attack a unit with the zombie dragon and right before it hits the ground he would fly away. On the dive the zombie dragon would hit the unit with his feet, the unit would take damage and the zombie dragon would then fly away without taking damage because it never goes into melee or touches the ground.
I then tested it for myself and it's extremely easy to execute. With practice using this exploit Mannfred can literally kill ANY AND ALL ground units without taking damage. It's much like Louen and his regen at the end of a game and using cycle charges to kill all the remaining units. But, this is worse because the Mannfred doesn't actually take any damage.
Please CA fix this with the next patch. If you need a video of the exploit I can provide you with one.
