I play Minecraft 1.14 in Hardcore Mode. I provoked an Enderman, so in the first place he tried to attack me, but then I ran away from him, but I wasn't running or looking back. Using the third person camera I could see he was still angry, but just following me without attacking me. So I continued to walk to the sea and got in to protect myself. He stayed on the ground, but was not angry anymore. He just teleported a lot near me, and took blocks. Now I can look at him, attack him, but he doesn't become angry at all, and won't attack me.
I really don't understand why. Is this a new feature in 1.14? Or normal behaviour?
The Enderman used to follow and fight to the death.
I searched the internet, but I couldn't find any similar situation, so I'm guessing it could be related to the update.
I have multiple screenshots of the situation, and my game is still paused in this situation.
