Sorry, the trigger is not working with multiples units, if there is more than 1 unit, it only shows on 1 unit and not others or the floating text stacks on 1 unit
(My only problem is with floating texts)

The stacking floating text on 1 unit problem is resolved but now some floating texts are not moving or disappearing. I think the floating texts are overlaping because of Last created Floating Text
Should i make a New trigger creating the 4x Floating text buffs in a hidden place and setting them into variables?

Oh you have to do a little bit advance triggering for that, to save into hashtable and what not.
Just browse my Rank System if you want to know what I meant by that (on how to move Floating Text and keeping them intact with the units)

But I advice you, it's an advanced triggering (for you perhaps?)

Simply to move Floating Text, do this;
  • Floating Text - Change the position of (Last created floating text) to (Picked unit) with Z offset 0.00
To make it disappear, do this;
  • Floating Text - Destroy (Last created floating text)
