[Unconfirmed] Magic Immunity inconsistent with dispelling buffs

  • [Unconfirmed] Magic Immunity inconsistent with dispelling buffs

    In short, magic immunity granted by BKB removes more (de)buffs than magic immunity granted by Nether Strike (and possibly other short-term immunity spells such as Life Break).

    Specifically, these buffs are the ones that were given through auras back in DotA 1. This means buffs such as Ice Blast, Crystal Nova, Cold Feet and many more. BKB is successfully dispelling these buffs while Nether Strike doesn't remove them properly. This means that using Nether Strike after getting hit by Iceblast doesn't dispel the debuff while using BKB after getting hit would remove the Iceblast debuff.

    In DotA 1, neither BKB nor Netherstrike removed these aura-based buffs.

    My questions:
    What other spells suffer from this inconsistency? (kinda lazy to test this)
    Is this an intended change?
    How do you feel it should behave?
