    [Confirmed] Invulnerability vs Global Silence

    Summary:

    Global silence now affects invulnerable units. This should include puck in phase shift. Currently it does not.

    As per Bu3ny's post at #3, time walk and Infest should also be affected. Snowball should not.

    Repro:

    1) Pick puck, level phase shift, get silencer (enemy) and level global silence
    2) phase shift, then cast global silence

    Result:

    No effect!

    Expected result:

    Global silence not only silences puck but ends phase shift (puck remains invulnerable, being able to attack as long as it doesn't issue any other orders in dota 1, but I believe that this is a bug...)

    Global Silence currently does not affect any target that is banished as they are hidden from the map. I am unable to test this in Dota 1, so someone should check if Disruption and Astral Imprisoned units are affected by Global Silence.

    The patch notes are a bit unclear, as the change only mentions allowing Global Silence to now hit sleeping units (yet it clearly does affect invulnerable units like those in Eul's Cyclone).

    No, hidden unit's aren't affected by Global Silence.

    If it says in the changelog something about sleeping units, then it most problably goes for every invulnerable unit, because with sleep, it's mostly reffered to SotS.

    I confirm this bug.


    E:
    I tested other spell which provide invulnerability.

    Results:
    Units are not silenced during:
    Timewalk, Phase Shift, Infest
    They should be silenced

    Units are silenced during:
    Snowball
    They should not be silenced.
