While playing Zac I noticed that sometimes while charging his elastic slingshot the ability auto cancels without any say so from the player. Please fix this asap

It does seem to happen randomly. It is really a game breaking bug for Zac. It does refund some cool down though.

This is not a bug. When you rightclick the ground, you start moving. This is how you cancel your Slingshot. When you right click on minimap, you also start moving.

Moving automatically cancels your slingshot.

It also cancels when you keep it charged too long.

Don't tap E. You need to keep pressing on E for skill to work.

Left clicking while in E spell, you just give him location to jump to. So it automatically jumps to your cursor location while holding E and left clicking.

Scrolling the map doesn't cancel his E. Tried it in different situations and still didn't canceled my spell.

Clicking on minimap while channeling his slingshot equals to clicking on the map. You just give him a position to jump to.

The thing with his slingshot and LEFT CLICK anywhere on the map or minimap. When you channel the spell, and you left click somewhere, you are automatically jumping there. If you click outside of his area of jumping showed, then he cancels his slingshot. Also, if you click in the opposite direction while channeling cancels your spell. That is simple because He can't jump where you indicated as he's faced the other way.

Tested all.

No, it's not just when you move, it cancels randomly like when you're waiting in the bushes to gank or when you're trying to escape or something and you don't press the right button but it still cancels. It seems to be random and is very annoying.

Agreed. This is not me moving Zac or anything. I press E, the skill activates and charges for about 0.5 seconds and then cancels as if I'd moved or right clicked without me doing so. This bug has been present since the night Zac was uploaded onto the PBE. I cannot recreate it and I even went a couple of games without it happening at all. However I can agree this is a game breaking bug for an already UP champ. When this bug happens it pretty much kills my gank chances until my E is off of cool down.
