  • [False] Toss/Linkens Sphere

    Hi

    I played storm spirit against tiny yesterday and bought linken's cause of toss, but it won't trigger when tiny tossed me.

    I am pretty sure that it worked in Dota before and in HoN aswell.

    So is it correct that it doesnt trigger?

    Regards

    It worked in HoN, it has to work in DOTA2, seems logical.

    Toss is not blocked by linkens.

    And why is this in customization suggestions.

        In my opinion, the most logical interaction is for Linkens to trigger if Tiny clicks Toss on you.

          Are you sure you don't mean the other way around? In the latter case the Tiny is clicking on you, in the former you're just being randomly selected.

          Likewise a Juggernaut in Bladefury is immune to another unit being tossed at him, but he can be selected to be thrown. In which case his Bladefury is broken and he takes damage (which is pretty dumb imo).

            Whooops, that's what I meant. Fixed.

              Right now you can toss anything, it seems like the unit to toss isn't checked for any linkin's or magic immunity. I tossed one of undying's zombies at him to kill him recently. Pretty sure linkin's or bkb SHOULD block a unit from being tossed though, just because it is a single target magic ability. Ultimately I guess it's a balance decision, because it would be a very slight nerf to toss.

                This is working as intended.
