Bug: Roster event shows Hogger as `Unknown`

  • Related Games: Heroes of the Storm
  • Related app/team name (not a must if you want to keep it private): Hots Timers
  • Issue Description:

When the game starts, overwolf raises an InfoUpdates2 event with the roster of the two teams. If Hogger is in the game, the roster entry for him shows Unknown in the field hero_name.

The exact JSON path is info.roster.roster.<battletag>.hero_name

  • Can you reproduce it (exact steps to reproduce): Can reproduce, choose Hogger as your own hero and start a VS. AI game. Since Hogger is on the friendly team, the app will still appear to work, but if you check the event log in the log you’ll see the Unknown hero name.

  • Impact for my app: It makes the app unusable if the enemy team has Hogger in it.

  • Do you currently have a workaround? No.

Please reproduce and attach a zip package of your OW client logs
Please mention the time of the event so we can find it easily in the logs
MainWindow.html.zip (46.4 KB)

Search the log for "hero_name":"Unknown" the first such find is in line 992

Next version (1.2.26) has a workaround for this, will test if hero name is “Unknown” and replace with “Hogger”.

Hello @paviad
We will release an update next gep version with fixing Hogger
And we will update you here

Have a nice day
