I have this spell, gives a chance to damage a unit that gets targeted by a spell. Anyways, i display the damage the trigger does to the unit through a floating text over their head. But it also creates a floating text in the center of the map sometimes, for no reason, i cant find anywhere in the trigger where it might do a floating text in center of map. Maybe someone else can see where it goes wrong?

What if multiple random numbers meet the conditions at once and hence multiple if blocks are executed?

In the first If Block, you create the text above SparkyUnit. So far, so good.
Then you set SparkyUnit to null.

In the second If Block, you create the text above SparkyUnit. But wait! SparkyUnit is now null. Therefore, the location of the text defaults to 0,0
