    Laser and Linken's Sphere interaction

    So, afair, DotA's Linken's did work on Laser. Yes, it did: the miss wouldn't work on a hero with Linken's, while the damage would still be applied.

    Not the case of Dota 2. Here, both the miss and the damage are blocked. But, the problem is, the last time i'd played Tinker in DotA was back in 6.70, and something could have changed...

    Repro:
    1: Get Linken's Sphere on any hero.
    2: Have an enemy Tinker use Laser on him.

    Effect:
    Laser deals no damage and leaves no miss debuff.

    Expected:
    Laser deals damage and leaves no miss debuff.

    Linken's works differently and it's intended. There are other changes (the windrunner ult change[was in dota2 first] or it blocking ground-targeted skills that can be single-targeted).

    So yeah.

    Ooookay, necroing my old threads because i forgot about them and they got answered.

    How do you know if it's intended, actually? It makes no sence how Laser and only Laser is odd in terms of Linken's Sphere blocking.

    He don't know this for sure, he thinks he knows.

    But apparently, the old dota system were wrong on this. So I BELIVE laser and miss should be blocked by linken.

    Linken's Sphere rules are so confusing...

    I, for one, think that it ought to block both damage and debuff from Tinker's laser, regardless of how it was in DotA.

    I think the old linken was better to only block single target spells
