Ghost Melees with Oddball?

Hey Spartans,

I’m currently playing the featured H3 Throwback Playlist. Everything seems to be going well except on Oddball where there’s this weird thing that happens when I try to melee an opponent. For some reason, instead of melee-ing it drops the ball and my spartan doesn’t do anything. This has happened multiple times now and it’s becoming a bit frustrating.

Does this happen to anybody else? Is there a sure-fire way to guarantee that you can hit the opponent without unintentionally auto-dropping the oddball in the process?

Yeah, it happened to me before. I used to think that maybe I hit the wrong button, but it happened even when I was paying attention to that. Don’t really know how to avoid it other than to do it sparingly.
