Is Orbital Strike broken again?

Anyone else notice that Orbital Strikes don't register damage when there's clearly someone within the target?
1st spawn - the heavy about to fire the rocket launcher at me...
2nd spawn - OS 3 does no damage to Han. Maybe he saved himself by hiding inside the Taun Taun's carcass (which I would genuinely love if it was a thing - very appropriate for Hoth)?

  • In my experience OS doesn't work if you set it at too long a distance from yourself. The first one with the heavy should have worked however.
  • The ability seems to still be a little twitchy. A few weeks ago, I was able to use it every single time with no issue on getting the ability to fire, but now it seems to be rather finicky in when it chooses to work or not.
  • It's hit and miss on hoth but on endor it shreds
  • When wasn't it broken? I hope they bring back the old Orbital Strike warning and map marker, it's fargin bullstein I can get a precious hero with 4500-6000 points, only to lose most of their health in seconds because I can't get out of an Orbital Strike.

    He knew.
  • Have had another game on Hoth since - tested it again and it worked perfectly... ^hit and miss seems appropriate
