This is the sort of thing that can make me doubt reality.
ign danac vs gmun, night of 7/06 [in case you can track it down]
Zen Furnace Viperia Emily vs
Kai Gnog Gnog Ferno Tsumi
Order went, Kai Drenched, Zen Safe Haven, Gnog Gnog Strike, Ferno Wildfire, Furnace Stroke the Boiler.
To be clear, defensive team had heroes in slot 1,2, normal speed go before my hero in slot #1
normal, who was Furnace.
This was not some weird glitch where Furnace was Slowed.
This is not a mistake in Hero order, I confirmed Furnace was in my first normal speed slot.
I realize the game trying to make me insane is not a glitch*, but incorrect hero order is.
*it might even be intended
