Mechanics behind dominate

I was wondering if anyone can explain how come a dominated character sometimes moves forward rather than attacking another of their team members within range.

Also I once dominated a tank which had counterattack active, and every subsequent attack I landed on him caused him to counterattack his own team. However I haven’t been able to replicate this. When I try the same now, the counterattack hits my own team.

There appears to be no sound logic behind the functioning either of these mechanics. The Ludians have not explained either, but have confirmed both work as intended. I do not anticipate these mechanics will change.

Your experience with the dominated counter-attack is somewhat unusual. The dominated hero’s attack is usually random, attacking either party. The questionable RNG has frustrated many players and you are likely stuck in an unfortunate streak. I expect you will eventually find an equilibrium with this mechanic.
