I know it's not a new problem with splash troops, but it's annoying, considering that splash troops either are weaker in damage (like Valkyrie vs Mini PEKKA) or cost more (like Wizard vs Musketeer).
Why the fuck should splash troops so dumb? The closest-target syndrome is hurting splash so much. First, the damage coverage is minimal, making it longer to defeat swarms. Second, the troops tend to retarget frequently instead of just go ahead and attack. It's not a big problem for single target troops, but for splash troops, retarget loop means DOOM.
FOR FUCK SAKE, WIZARD, I DON'T SPEND 1 MORE ELIXIR JUST FOR YOU RETARGETING FOR 3 SECONDS!
