Summary0023745: Clicks on enemy targets don't register under certain conditions.

When fully zoomed out (although not sure if it happens on other zoom levels), targeting an enemy unit for attack by clicking on the icon will trigger a movement next to the object in question instead, depending on how close to the center of the icon you click.
The icon in question is greyed out, signaling that the cursor is indeed on top of it.

Doesn't appear to be linked to specific settings. The video above is a fresh game with default settings. It displays the failed attempts when targeting on the edge of the sprite, as well as the successful attempt when targeting the center of the sprite.
TagsNo tags attached.

I've had this happen, too. I thought I was just missclicking. Though, I've never had it happen that many times with one target.

Generally most annoying when trying to target things subverter turrets in a big emplacement and you end up moving your entire fleet on top of the turret nest instead of focus firing from as far as possible.

I suspect it's because the icons are overlayed over the unit models and when trying to click the icon, at max zoom you end up missing the model because it doesn't scale as much.

I play with the icons offset (which allow me to see the models better) and I had multiple times scenarios where I moved because I forgot to compensate for the offset, particularly with warp gates.

I've had this happen too. I figured it was a feature not a bug. For example a safety for destroying a command center on accident. lol
