      I did guess this would be reported, but only searched for "Shadow Strike," "Venomous Gale," and "Viper Strike."

      Blargh buff removal is a mess.

        Damage calculation order is a true mess :P I honestly can't even remember where I wrote the incorrect damage order calcs. Ah well.

          This forum is a mess...what's up with the crashing? Anyone mention anything?


          • #6
            No idea, it's been unstable for a day or so? But I think is as well, so probably valve servers being crap. Preparing for the summer sale perhaps? :P

              I remember the Summer Sales always being rather late in the summer...much later than late June. I might remember wrong though. Man, its not even summer down there in down under, isn't it? :33 Does valve actually acknowledge this and show you guys a different page, or are you simply once again blunty reminded that the world revolves around America?


              • #8
                Bluntly reminded. It even has snow. And everything's spelt (wow, spelt is wrong in American "English" too? I guess you guys say "spelled") incorrectly, like Colour, Honour etc. :P

                  Bumping some of my old posts that weren't noticed to get on the Confirmed List. Added info about Aphotic Shield and Borrowed Time, thanks to WhiteHawke.

                      So is it only Mirror image- based spells wrongly not disabling it by now? Everything else works fine?

                        If you want the current DotA 1 interaction, the buff-removing code for Aphotic Shield and Borrowed Time have not changed. They still remove all possible Physical, Magical, and Universal I "negative" hard-coded debuffs, including Shadow Strike variants, which are Universal I. Time Lapse uses two buff removals: while the list-based "Dark Pact" removal now excludes Viper Strike, the other method is the same as Aphotic Shield and Borrowed Time, therefore having the same interaction.

                        If you want to know the "intent"—I have no idea. If "Duel breaks Ethereal Disarm" is intended now, then I can't judge an intent on this. It is a "limitation" of the specific buff-removing method that these spells use...but then Icefrog could have changed that too. There could be a second list for extra precision in fine-tuning such qualities.
