  • [Witch Bane] Active component uses wrong name

    Witch Bane’s active component is currently called "Cleanse", which is not the name that the 7.30 changelog mentions:

    In the 7.30 changelog the active component is called "Dispel", a term that already exists in Dota terminology and is used for dispelling/purging a unit.

    Since Witch Bane’s AoE dispel got nerfed to be a single target dispel in patch 7.30c, the unique name for its active is now unnecessary.

    A single target dispel is nothing special, thus the generic "Dispel" or "Purge" should be used for Witch Bane’s active component’s name, as the 7.30 changelog already suggests.
    I am usually located at the end of the Alphabet.

    Changelogs use wrong names all the time. Having Unique names is better than copying the same generic ability multiple times. Names are supposed to fit thematically, and not be so strict. That's why Slardar's abilities got renamed from Sprint/Bash/Amplify Damage to what we have.

    Dispel is the name of the mechanic in general. Purge is commonly associated with a slowing effect (all abilities that use "purge" anywhere in their name or description have a strong slow effect)
    Please, just call me buny.
