      Cooldown abuse i think?

      1- Use Linken on yourself
      2- Wait Linken have atleast 3-4 sec cd
      3- You have 2 linken (if linken procs, your linken isnt gonna cd (didnt test) = 2 linken)

      Or another perspective: if your team have 2 linkens, visual abuse (They will think you have linken+linken from teammate)?

        If you're asking how it affects gameplay, then a misclick may cause to unwanted situations. Situations that shouldn't be possible.

          It might become relevant then Arc Warden comes out. Tempest Double can't use pasive Linken Sphere block but casted on it Sphere can block. So in Dota 1 you can't protect Tempest Double with Linken Sphere alone. You need to cast it from your hero on Tempest Double and then from Tempest Double on whoever you want.

            What I have seen, if you put it on yourself and linkens gets broken, the cooldown of linkens will start from the beginning.

              Yes, it can't be abused. It was already tried and proven that it can't be abused. However, as Noo said, missclick might lead to unwanted situations (double click works, too).
              And as igo95862 said, it might be relevant later when Arc Warden gets released.
              Please, just call me buny.

                The cooldown resets on your linken if you block an spell with it, regardless of who cast the Linken buff on you.
