However owner and setOwner dont work with groups anywhere. The group will always be local to the client that created it, until the client disconnects, then the group becomes local to the server.

The deleteGroup Command does not work when there are living members of in the group. It doesn't error, it simply doesn't do anything.

Living or not doesn't matter - you can't delete the group while it contains any units - even dead ones. It takes few seconds until a dead unit is automatically removed from its group.

deleteGroup will only delete local groups even if called by server. Say we have a situation where client creates a group and puts a unit there and later unit dies\gets deleted, server will not be able to delete that empty group until client leaves the game and group ownership switches to server
