[Investigating] Licantropy doesn't count for troop defeating

Platform, device version and operating system:
Windows 10 x64

Not possible

What you were expecting to happen, and what actually happened:
I just fought against 3 Crimson Bats team + hero. I won. One of the bats transformed by licantropy in process. In the end I got only 2 bats counted for “Defeat Crimson Bats in battle”. I dunno if it’s expected, and weither other transformation effects works for such occasions, but it feels wrong for me.

How often does this happen? When did it begin happening?
Just noticed. Well, licantropy just announced anyway.

Steps to make it happen again

  • Infect task enemy with licantropy (I use Essence of Evil for that).
  • Wait until transformation.
  • Observe task results.

This issue has come up before. I know at least one person has posted here about it on April 1st.
Devs do not consider it a bug, but are “looking into it”.
That thread was the last I heard of it on the devs side. If there is a thread I missed where the devs clearly stated they have a solution for this, please let me know, I could’nt find one, myself.
