[Confirmed] Blademail refreshing buff instead of adding another layer of blademail.

  • [Confirmed] Blademail refreshing buff instead of adding another layer of blademail.

    When blademail is activated, a 4 second buff shows up. When you use blademail while this buff is activate, blademail just gets refreshed instead of adding a second blademail buff, which happened in DotA.

    Repro to check:

    1. Create a lobby game and start the game (Cheats on)
    2. pick any hero and purchase blademail
    3. Activate blademail
    4. Before the duration of blademail ends, activate blademail again

    Result: Blademail buff gets refreshed

    Expected result: Blademails stack on eachother, making it 100%/200%/300%.... etc damage reduction

    The things is, in -Wtf you could just spam blademail and people attacking you a single time would die instant, if no bkb was present.
    Tinker may also suffer from this a bit, or any hero who has a refresher with him/her also

    Adding videos to compare between the two games how blademail works, youtube is just so slow

    Bumping with a second post so people can see. Somehow dota2 video didnt get uploaded but you can test it yourself and compare

    EDIT: TURN OFF THE VOLUME. I have no idea why it sounds so terrible.

    As you can see the creeps deal less damage to them even if I'am spamming blademail because the buff just refreshes which shouldn't work that way
